Dramatic vistas, open spaces, unique desert wildlife Damaraland Camp is situated in the Torra Conservancy – an inspirational community partnership – with sensational views of the surrounding desert plains, ancient valleys and distant peaks of the Brandberg Mountains. New technology blends with ancient construction methods to create innovative, eco-friendly luxury in the desert, with the camp’s 10 elevated adobe-styled, thatched units (including a family unit). A spacious, thatched living area is complete with a fireplace, bar, and swimming pool. An open campfire and outdoor 'boma' can be enjoyed during calm evenings. Large game is not concentrated year-round here, with the natural cycle of rainfall dictating the seasonal movement of wildlife along the Huab River, which can be explored from camp.

Seeing the desert adapted elephants and black rhino were special. Be aware, the 6 hour drive from Swakopmund via Uis is horrible as most of the road is in a very bad corrugated state. The roads in the conservancy are the worse I've seen on any game drive anywhere. The elephant and rhino activities include 4 to 6 hours of being seriously tossed and bumped around on the back of a safari vehicle. If you have back problems you will regret it forever. The camp, service, staff and room-tent are excellent!

What a special place! We love the lodge, the dinner at the the "boma" in front of the fires. But the most special thing was the full day activity spotting the black wild rhino together with the rangers of the Torra conservacy. What an experience. Respect for the work being done. A big thank you to the staff. They did make the extra step in order to make you feel very special!!!!

This is a tented lodge. It has basic creature comforts, including a high-powered ceiling fan in the room, hot and cold running water and electricity 24/7. Yet, the camp retains a rustic feel. There is no in-room mini bar but they will set up your favourite drinks in the room if you want them. The internet is reliable but pretty slow. The main areas are open air, but comfortable, and you'll enjoy spending time lounging around the couches and talking to the staff (Donovan, Petty, Collin the manager and Bons our guide). Each of the staff gets a big shout out, and a bonus shout out for singing and dancing for the guests. Everyone was really friendly and down to earth. Don't forget to ask Petty to read the menu in the click language. You won't understand it but you'll enjoy it! The highlight of the trip was the black rhino trekking. You get close to the rhinos on foot. You will feel very safe as the trackers are around to divert the rhinos if necessary. It is a once-in-a-lifetime experience that you will never forget. The rhinos are beautiful creatures. Bons, our guide, was fabulous. He is so knowledgeable about tracking animals and taught us so much about how to do this. His bush refreshments are the best. We really enjoyed our visit here. It is a special place.

From the moment we arrived with the team singing a song, nothing was too much trouble. Yes it is a long way and on bumpy roads and it is not going to have the finest for everyone but as a camp it was 10 star. See the photos. Limbo the guide was great and the whole team catered for everything I would 250% want to got back for more time

A staff that will know your socks off! The food was fabulous and the meals served outside were a special experience that can not be described, only felt. If you are able to have a breakfast in the bush - don't miss the loo with the view. Our guide, Immanuel, was fantastic. His quiet enthusiasm was priceless. As the first Wilderness camp, it honors the history and concept of the camps well. Since there are no lions here, hiking is easy and very relaxing. Try one of the two trails that leave from the camp. The pool is small but very nice. I hope when I come back there will be a handrail for people over 50! After a month in various locations in four African countries, this is one of two places I will make sure I revisit. It brings a new meaning to peaceful.
