Place: Damaraland Camp is situated in the Huab River Valley in one of the best wilderness areas in Namibia, offering endless vistas across stark plains, ancient valleys and a stunning ochre-purple mountain backdrop. Activities include nature drives and guided nature walks, while further afield, ancient rock art and geological wonders dot the area.

Wildlife: Damaraland Camp in the Torra Conservancy exists within one of the driest, most desolate regions in all of Africa. In this arid environment the ceaseless processes of life revolve around harnessing the near non-existent water in the most economical way possible. Obviously this scrub landscape cannot support vast, concentrated herds of wildlife – it nevertheless boasts a varied and breathtaking assortment of desert-adapted species around Damaraland Camp. The Torra Conservancy supports healthy populations of rare desert-adapted elephant, and some black rhino. Gemsbok (oryx), kudu, springbok, Hartman’s mountain zebra, southern giraffe, lion, cheetah, as well as spotted and brown hyaena live in the area. Birding is excellent, with over 240 species recorded.

Accommodation: Ten spacious and raised adobe-style thatched accommodations (including a family unit) with large decks offer unforgettable vistas across the geologically extraordinary plains and ancient valleys to a stunning ochre-purple mountain backdrop. The inviting main area has a pool, open camp fire, and traditional outdoor boma – typically canopied with countless stars in the crystal-clear night sky.

Purpose: Wilderness Safaris and the Torra community in Damaraland have formed a successful partnership, with the community acting as landlord. This resulted in the 352 000-hectare (869 000-acre) Torra Conservancy being proclaimed – the first community conservancy in Namibia, and which has resulted in an award-winning partnership.
