Against and among the granite boulders, Twyfelfontein Adventure Camp has prime location for visiting the highlights of the area. From here you can easily explore the heart of Damaraland, the sights of Twyfelfontein and track desert-adapted elephants.
Within walking distance of the Damara Living Museum, Twyfelfontein Adventure Camp (we'll call it TAC, shall we?) is a 10-minute drive from the Twyfelfontein Rock Engravings, Burnt Mountain and Organ Pipes. Situated in the Huab River Valley, there’s a chance the elephants could stroll past your tent at any moment or at the least, you won’t have to venture very far to find them.
Location is key and in that category TAC is a winner. It’s been a long day's drive from any direction to get here, so once you’ve arrived, it’s great knowing you won’t have to spend much time in the car to explore the area. Less time on the road means more time for adventure and to laze at the pool with a drink in hand. Of equal importance when on holiday.
The eco-friendly camp itself is basic, tasteful and really quite charming; add the view and the necessary comforts of a clean and decent stay and you’ll be delighted to call TAC your home for the next few nights. Two-night stays allow you to book a spectacular guided nature drive in an open safari vehicle.
Jumbled sandstone hills, platinum-blonde savannahs and olive-green shrublands make this landscape of incredible scale, colour and silence - so much silence - a marvel. See the many wildlife species that thrive here and learn how humans and wildlife including elephant, lion, rhino, antelope varieties and smaller predators have adapted to life in a land so hot and dry that it becomes ever more a wonder.
12 twin en suite tents; open bathroom with shower, basin and toilet; safe; laundry service (additional charge); shaded terrace with seating.
Restaurant, lounge area, bar, swimming pool with deck; WiFi and mobile connectivity.

Embracing the Damaraland scenery, built as dome chalets incorporating tree trunks with thatched roofs, in between the iconic stone boulders, Cape Kipwe is a one of our top picks for location and hints of luxury.
Twyfelfontein Country Lodge camouflaged against a rocky outcrop, is one of the best located lodges to the sights of the area in Damaraland. The pool an equally important selling point as is the buffet spread you can expect.
Doro Nawas in the Abu-Huab River valley is the spot from which to explore Twyfelfontein or search for elephants. Push your bed out onto your private verandah to sleep under the stars of Damaraland.
