Place: Damaraland Camp is situated in the Huab River Valley in one of the best wilderness areas in Namibia, offering endless vistas across stark plains, ancient valleys and a stunning ochre-purple mountain backdrop. Activities include nature drives and guided nature walks, while further afield, ancient rock art and geological wonders dot the area.
Accommodation: Ten large adobe-style thatched units (including a family unit) are raised off the ground, each with a walk-in dressing area and a large deck on which to sit and relax, while contemplating the desert. The spacious communal living area comprises a dining space and pool. An open camp fire and outdoor boma are enjoyed during calm evenings and stargazing is superb, thanks to the crystal-clear night skies.
Purpose: Wilderness Safaris and the Torra community in Damaraland have formed a successful partnership, with the community acting as landlord. This resulted in the 352 000 hectare (869 000 acre) Torra Conservancy being proclaimed – the first community conservancy in Namibia, and which has resulted in an award-winning partnership. Visits to the nearby farmstead allows guests to see this relationship in action.
