Damaraland Camp
Damaraland

In one of Africa’s most pristine and hauntingly desolate regions you will stumble upon one of Namibia’s best camps: the award-winning Damaraland Camp. Set between the Skeleton Coast and the Namib Desert, the camp is celebrated for being eco-friendly and sustainable as well as providing luxury accommodation in a soul-stirringly remote setting.  It operates in partnership with the Torra Conservancy and being owned and largely run by the local community has added a certain magic and warmth to the camp. Its innovative design has successfully blended new technology with ancient methodology, for which it won the Tomorrow Conservation Award for the best eco-friendly construction.

Damaraland Camp’s accommodation comprises of ten adobe-styled thatched structures including one family unit, which are all elevated in carefully chosen locations across the camp to afford guests privacy and the best views across the surrounding purple-hued hills, small dunes and soaring Brandberg Mountains.  The camp’s spacious thatched living area has a fireplace to warm up by on cool desert nights, a bar, and a swimming pool for a refreshing dip after your game drive. There is also an open campfire and outdoor 'boma' where guests can enjoy a traditional dinner and local entertainment from the incredibly friendly staff, topped off with some truly dazzling stargazing. The camp is hosted by a mixed heritage of the local people, including Nama-Damara, Herero, Owambo, and the displaced Riemvasmakers of South Africa, who guests can engage with further on visits to a local farms if they would like to.

Regarded as one of Africa’s top wilderness locations, Damaraland offers a unique safari experience… head out into the wild on nature drives and walks to search for desert-adapted elephants, alongside cheetah, gemsbok, greater kudu, springbok, lion, brown hyena and occasionally the heavily endangered black rhino. Birding is excellent, with over 240 species recorded. Guests can also explore this stunning landscape by mountain bike, or visit collections of ancient rock engravings including the famous Twyfelfontein etchings at Namibia’s first World Heritage Site.

When preparing to travel, lay out all your clothes and all your money. Then take half the clothes and twice the money.

We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
We have been on expensive and luxurious holidays in the past, but the service and communication Ampersand has provided has far exceeded those offered by other agencies.
- Susan Ford, India
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
Ampersand’s details preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet/direct booking age. Shalmali was a delight to work with – before and during our trip.
- Mr David Wallace, North India
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
