Located between Namibia’s Central Plateau and the Skeleton Coast, Damaraland is a geologist’s dream renowned for its natural beauty, desert-adapted wildlife and ancient human history in the form of rock engravings. A land of endless horizons, pastel colours, sublime sunsets and more stars at night than you can possibly imagine, this is true wilderness at its best.
Split into vast private concessions, it is here that you can track the world’s only naturally occurring free-roaming population of desert-adapted black rhino. It is home to Namibia’s desert-adapted elephants which roam huge distances in search of water and nourishment, aided in their survival by their undeniable intelligence, memory capacity and sense of smell.
Other major attractions include the rock engravings at Twyfelfontein (a UNESCO World Heritage Site) and geological features such as the strange petrified forest, Burnt Mountain and Organ Pipes.
