Nestled in the Huab River valley, and surrounded by low hills, Damaraland Camp was one of the earliest camps in this area, having first opened around 1996. Although it has undergone a number of renovations since then, with the chalets almost doubled in size, it retains its strong community feel, and is now part owned by the local people. The camp's secluded location makes it a great base from which to explore the many attractions of this stark but richly diverse region.
Our view of Damaraland Camp
A joint venture between a good safari company, Wilderness Safaris, and the people of the local Torra Conservancy, Damaraland Camp has proved hugely successful. It's a model of how community-based tourism can work – and is looked at by other camps in Africa for inspiration. The camp has a great atmosphere with friendly, happy staff who clearly love what they do and are devoted to making your stay as enjoyable and memorable as possible. Added to that, Damaraland Camp is located in one of the most beautiful wilderness areas in Namibia, where the effect of the light brings constantly changing scenery. It's a great place to spend two or three nights.
