Damaraland Camp appears to be simple and many are surprised at its relatively hefty price tag. The wooden decor may look a little dated, so know that this was Namibia’s first ever wilderness camp and experience is in the detail.
While many other camps have replicated the earthy, khaki and wooden tones, none can quite match Damaraland Camp’s classic safari feel. And the real highlight is wildlife. You don’t come all the way here to sit in the pool. You come for adventure.
Game drives are exceptional, especially in encountering big desert-adapted elephants. Guiding is superb and what you lack in Wi-Fi you gain in pure solitude. Remoteness is another allure – expect absolute solitude beneath massive Namibian skies.
