Excellent for Desert Elephants
An excellent lodge on the top of a hill with the thatched bungalows nestling below. Warm welcome but best if all-inclusive is taken.
Activity to see the desert elephants very good with an extensive cross section of the countryside. Guide points out flora and fauna. Ambience in the main building good. Food very good, staff interested and cheerful. Sang to us one night.
Elephants at Doro Nawas
We arrived to laughter from the staff at Doro Nawas - our car was absolutely filthy! Red dust combined with the driizzle along the coast - but Sylvanus quickly sorted it out for us and we were teased that we had a new car!
Our tent was beautiful, huge and I loved the outside shower. Its position was stunning, overlooking the desert and over to the mountains.Completely private --we could have been on our own, We didn't spend a complete night sleeping out but moved our bed out about 5am in time to watch the sunrise! A lovely treat to be able to do this and in comfort in a proper bed!
We drove ourselves to the organ pipes and Twyfelfontein and enjoyed those without wanting to devote too much time to them. We enjoyed relaxing around the pool and had a lovely early morning walk with a guide where we tracked the desert elephants. We didn't see them on foot but later that day we went on a drive and watched a herd of eight at close quarters. The adults were feeding whilst the youngsters caused chaos and were very amusing.
The staff entertainment here was the best - they were brilliant !!
Doro Nawas review
By far the most magical of the lodges.
We went on our own to the rock art site - very interesting - but the petrified forest was not worth the minor diversion
Sleeping under the stars at Doro Nawas
We're running out of superlatives! Another fabulous place, brilliant staff, good food. We pushed our bed out on to the balcony and slept under the stars - what an experience.
Desert elephants another highlight. Petrified forest disappointing - guide very offhand. Unfortunately this is where we ran out of steam a bit so didn't visit the rock paintings /burnt mountain/organ pipes. But what a place to relax!

Doro Nawas review
This place has to take top marks for being the most friendly and welcoming of all our lodges.
Everything was excellent and we felt that we had known the staff for ever!
Top marks for the manager.
Exciting elephant safari
We were most impressed with Doro Nawas.
The staff could not have been more helpful, and quite often if we were just sitting around would come to make sure everything was all right and there was nothing we needed.
The accommodation was first class, but sadly it was a bit chilly for sleeping under the stars, although a lovely idea!
We all particularly enjoyed the off-road elephant safari.
