Why Damaraland?
Follow elephants and oryx through arid canyons, or catch a glimpse of bateleur eagles flying overhead as you walk through petrified forests. See the rock art of ancient bushmen at Twyfelfontein and sleep under the stars at an exclusive desert lodge.

Namibia is an incredible place to get outdoors and Damaraland is one of the best regions for activities that go beyond the safari vehicle. Enjoy guided nature walks, engage with local Himba and Herero communities, and witness some of the darkest night skies in all of Africa. This is a region full of fascination, and one that captures the true essence of Namibia.
