In Damaraland lives one of only two populations of desert elephants in the world. Numbering fewer than 2,000, these are also the tallest elephants in the world. Damaraland is home to the elusive black rhino as well. Both species are favorite subjects of our photographic safaris.

Damaraland also has a World Heritage site called Twyfelfontein, with Bushman art that dates to 25,000 years ago, and Namibia’s tallest mountain, the Brandberg, or “Burnt Mountain.”

Damaraland Accommodations

From the moment you arrive at this unique tented mountain camp, you will be spoiled by the staff, who go out of their way to make each guest’s stay as enjoyable as possible.

Each deluxe tent is a supremely comfortable private hideaway where you will be pampered with crisp white linens, en-suite bathrooms and your own wooden deck offering a sweeping view of the Damara landscape. The central suite is a private lounge with butler service, a music center and satellite television, complemented by private dining and bar facilities. Whether relaxing in bed, enjoying a romantic dinner under the stars, or throwing caution to the wind in the open-air bush bathroom, you’ll be delighted by this unique Namibian experience.
