A really rewarding experience.
This was to become our best experience to date.
We were met by Teek who was to become our guide for the duration of our stay. We arrived at the lodge to be greetly by drinks, cool towels, and a welcome song from the staff. This was to become a trend during our stay here. The staff would sing and dance after every evening meal. And also sing a goodbye song on our departure.
The elephant drive and outdoor breakfast led by Teek was an unforgettable experience. The evening meals which are communal, and themed, so that they are different every evening. They were truly an unforgettable.
The lodges were marvellous, and I would recommend this camp to anyone.
Damaraland Camp review
This is a truly remarkable camp located amongst stunningly beautiful mountains - quite breathtaking scenery...
It deserves the highest of accolades.
Abner our Guide for the Desert elephants was outstanding - by far the best guide of the whole holiday. The Staff manage to engender real enthusiasm for whatever they are doing.. Two of the Cooks were happy to give me a guided tour of their kitchen !
The Manager contacted Wilderness Safaris at Windhoek Airport in an attempt to track down any progress reports on Katrina's missing luggage.
Everything is perfect except the location of our chalet. Our chalet faces the sun in the afternoon so it is very hot indoor for the short break in the afternoon and no socket.
I like the activity of visiting nearby village very much. I appreciate the wilderness safari works well with the nearby community which benefits both from tourism.
We parked our car at a village and we were so surprised that they not only keep an eye on our car but washed it! Thank them a lot!
Please convey our great thanks to villagers. Beautiful and friendly villagers.
Great fun. Terrific staff.
The staff & camp atmosphere made this our best in-camp experience.
Gwen, Rose, Rhianna, our guide Abner & others made it a wonderful place to stay.
Camp of the singing Desert Roses
The camp is another true oasis in the desert and well worth more than two nights visit, we only wish we could stay longer. The perfectly charming yet utterly professional, mostly female, stuff made our stay here a most wonderful experience. These young ladies with all their accomplishments are a treasure and cannot be praised highly enough!
The camp itself is well situated in the landscape and the staff enhance the stay with bush breakfast on a hilltop at sunrise (a loo with a view included) and magical boma dinner after dark. We went on a guided walk on the first afternoon. The one hour uphill walk was worth every step as we were rewarded with a beautiful sunset and we learnt a few things along the way about the geology flora and fauna of this seemingly barren land. Surprise Boma-dinner and stargazing ended a fabulous day.
The nature drive to the riverbed was great next morning and we happened upon the desert adopted elephants fairly early. It was a great gathering of about 30 individuals, a breathtaking sight. We spent an hour or so in the vicinity, watching them feeding and then we turned back to the camp letting the elephants spend the rest of the day in privacy ( hopefully). Great and generous lunch waited for us and then we could enjoy the camps cool pool. Our guide was a little reserved at first but once we started to ask he revealed a broad knowledge of this unique place and even the stars.
Ten plus km up a rocky track to get there from the road - after the most amazing drive up the skeleton coast. Somehow better rooms than anything so far - with views to die for - different again. A sung welcome, the evening menu in click language - you have to hear it and dancing/singing too - and it is really clear no one is being coerced to do it - warms the heart honestly.
Out with Richard to see the elephants - out of Africa breakfast and the loo with a view hard to beat and on to the rock carvings. Pool very welcome for a bit of rest and relaxation.

Considering its location in a remote area it was pretty good.Read more about the whole safari
Great staff created lovely atmosphere
We had a wonderful time at Damaraland camp. The staff goes out of its way to make your stay enjoyable.
We particularly enjoyed the morning breakfast in the mountains as well as the Boma dinner.
Damaraland Camp review
Completely fail to understand why this place is so much more expensive tha Doro Nawas. Pssition less attractive. Room smaller but of very good quality. Food good.
But none of the small differences added up to £100 a night.
Great damaraland lodge
Lovely camp with great reception area and we had a lovely cabin at the end of the row, with a beautiful view. The food was imaginative, and there was a main course choice.
Staff made a great effort to talk to everyone and draw everyone together.the day trip with breakfast on the hill top was great then followed by a trip to find the elephants all in the river bed. We were told there was a trip price list in the room, but we couldn't find it, and it was quite expensive, but a great trip.
All the transfers, and leaving car by goat farm were simple and efficient.
