Stay at Doro !Nawas

A lodge with style and no it’s not a typo, Doro !Nawas is a Damara phrase that befits the bounty of the Damaraland surroundings. There’s hardly a more dramatic or isolated high-end lodge anywhere in Africa. 

Like all the best Namibian lodges, Doro !Nawas blurs into its surroundings yet provides refuge from the desert. Lounge in a pool overlooking ethereal rock formations. Slumber in style as elephants march along the dried riverbeds below. 

Whether you fly into the private airstrip or make a stop here as part of an overland expedition, you’ll be greeted by a rustic chic and a warming place to rest. And to get close to desert elephants in the wild it’s unbeatable – just sit back and watch the giants wander by.
