Great singing

We had no water in the camp the morning we left because the elephants had torn out the water line serving the camp. I thought it was great--my wife, not so much.

The staff greeted us with a song then sang several songs for everyone after dinner. I am not given to organized fun, but their three part harmony was excellent. They had obviously practiced a lot and seemed to enjoy giving the performance.

Great stay at Doro Nawas

Amazing location, really love the appearance and outlook of the main lodge, chalets were great, very friendly staff and great welcome.

Best singers on our trip and it was lovely to hear the local click dialect. Bush dinner was a great experience though the cuts of meat were not as lean as we expected. Having said that, lunch at the lodge was the best we had on the entire trip.

Game drive was great as well and amazing to get close to the desert elephants.

Doro Nawas review

Attractive location with a beautiful view.

The highlights were the tour to Damara Living Museum and desert adapted elephants.

Also sleepout at night and the presentation of bush dinner.

Lovely

We also loved this lodge and the layout. We were lucky as we saw desert elephant the evening we arrived. We drove ourselves to the different spots and so just used it as a base. We enjoyed Twyfelfontain but the organ pipes could be skipped. We really loved the petrified forest on the way to Etosha.

Doro Nawas review

A lovely lodge where you get a great local welcome and you really sense that locals are at the heart of running the place. Very happy with everything here. Staff very welcoming.

The footpaths and steep path to main reception may be a problem for people with mobility issues. Nice comfortable chalets - no air conditioning but that wasn't a problem as nights were cool.

Spectacular views and the rooftop barbeque was a real treat. Highly recommend.

A good one night stopover

Our welcome was not as good as at other Namibean establishments which means we can't rate our stay as excellent.

However we liked staying here, the food was good and the chalets very comfortable.

Staying here meant we could see the rock engravings at Twyfelfontein, the Organ Pipes and Burnt Mountain and spend time at the Damara Living Museum - all very worthwhile.

Doro Nawas review

We have never had a sung welcome but absolutely loved it!

Wonderful hill-top building, trying to blend in with the surrounding rocks. Well spaced apart tents, beautifully decorated and equipped. Loved the outside shower. Good food and very friendly, well trained staff.

Very good guide Collen who helped us succeed in finding the desert elephants we had gone to see. Very knowledgeable and entertaining and sympathetic to what we wanted to do. Also a wonderful bush supper, again with singing to welcome us all and the menu translated into their 'click' language.

All great! Such amazing views and sunsets - never to be forgotten.

Would have preferred excursions to have been included.

Doro Nawas review

Greeted warmly by staff song. Another palatial lodge, great service and lovely room. They also recognized our anniversary with a bottle of wine, and sweet handwritten card. We slept on outside porch for both nights. We took all sundowner drives and morning game drives.

We drove ourselves to Twyfelfontain, another wonderful experience. Met wonderful man, guide Martin. We drove with him to Khorixas in the evening to complete some of our personal chores ($ exchange, fuel, etc), we met his parents and extended family for a welcomed cultural exchange.
