Doro Nawas rests on the edge of the dry Aba-Huab River overlooking ancient plains with glorious views of the rugged Damaraland area. The camp provides an excellent base for exploring in game drive vehicles and on foot, as well as excursions to view fascinating geological phenomena, petroglyphs (prehistoric rock engravings) and San rock art at Twyfelfontein, Namibia’s first World Heritage Site.
Wildlife and Scenic Drives
Desert-adapted wildlife such as springbok, gemsbok and elephant can be seen on nature drives which are topped off with a river lunch or scenic walk at “Little Table Mountain”.
Back of house tours and camp chats about the Doro !Nawas Conservancy, the Damara/Nama language and traditions offer rewarding insights into the community, while the Damara Living Museum displays the traditional culture of the Damara people.
Visit the ancient San rock art at Twyfelfontein, a World Heritage Site, as well as the Petrified Forest, Burnt Mountain and Organ Pipes, all unusual and ancient geological phenomena.

Sleep out on your veranda under the starry skies of the Namib, lulled to sleep by the nocturnal sounds of Africa.
The 16 chalets are crafted in wood, canvas and thatch (including a family unit) to blend in with the surrounding scenery. Each unit comprises a bedroom, bathroom, outdoor shower, and veranda for star gazing or sleep outs under the stars. There are indoor and outdoor dining areas, a pool area and a small curio shop.
