Doro Nawas Camp
Damaraland

Sleep out under the star-filled skies of the Namib desert at Doro Nawas Camp, a magical property in the rugged and starkly scenic desert of Damaraland. It overlooks the dry Aba-Huab River Valley, which is extremely arid apart from during the summer when the rains carpet the landscape with desert flowers of golden grass. The main camp provides indoor and alfresco dining, a swimming pool as well as a flat roof with commanding views to enjoy stunning sundowners. Guests are housed in 16 natural walled rooms including one Family Room built in local stone with thatched roofs each unit has an en-suite bathroom and an outdoor shower. All rooms boast an open-plan layout and large glass doors so that beds can be wheeled out to the verandah for sleep outs with panoramic views and astonishing stargazing.

Great for seekers of solitude as well as culture and wildlife lovers, Doro Nawas Camp is perfectly situated for excursions to view the prehistoric rock engravings and fascinating San rock art at Twyfelfontein, Namibia’s first World Heritage Site. A trip to the Damara Living Museum is worthwhile to get a glimpse of the traditional culture of the Damara people. Guests can experience the unique local wildlife on game drive vehicles and on foot to search for desert-adapted elephant herds which traverse the riverbed seasonally. There is other wildlife to be found here such as springbok and gemsbok and if you’re lucky, the highly endangered rhino. On guided nature walks there is excellent birding to be enjoyed and you can also learn about the special flora and fauna which has adapted to this exceptionally harsh environment.

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
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
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
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
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
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
