Finally found it!
We were doing a self drive. The section of road from Khorixas was corrugated bedrock with frequent dips - the worst we encountered in 3000 kms. The main road, C39, was not marked after Khorixas so after 3 hours driving we wondered if we'd gotten off on a side road. Finally came to a crossroads so could locate ourselves on the good map provided by Exp. Africa. The turn off for Doro Nawas was poorly marked (small sign off to one side) and went right through the middle of some familiy's farm. After 5 kms we saw what looked to be a burnt cinder on top of a hill in the distance. This is Doro Nawas.
A steep climb up bare, rocky hillside from our car lead to the reception. We were welcomed graciously and enjoyed our stay.The staff were gracious and helpful.
Unfortuately, the activities (not included) were very expensive...the afternoon, 2 hour, elephant drive would have been over $130. for myself and 13 yr old grandaughter and this was not a good value for me.
It would not be a good location for someone with physical problems (knee or hip weakness) due to the steep and uneven climb up/down between lodge and cabins.
The trips were rather expensive especially the cave paintings - perhaps travellers would be better to do these independently as we had an awful guideRead more about the whole safari
What a stunning location. The central lodge had the most amazing 360 views across the crater. We wheeled the bed out & slept under the stars!!!!
Wished we'd stayed another night.
Good Wilderness camp but less friendly
Well organised. Fuller of families than previous camp we had been at. Didn't feel as relaxed or as friendly as camp at Sossuvlei. Very confortable and great location. Not really worth staying much more than one day.
Were flexible in arrannging for us to visit the rock engravings and desert elephants in one trip - though it was freezing cold in the early morning fog!
