The Doro Nawas Conservancy covers an area of 412 000-hectares (1 018 074-acres) of the former district of Damaraland, now part of the Kunene Region. Situated in the Huab River Valley, approximately 120 kilometres (75 miles) inland from the Atlantic Ocean. 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: this is a wonderful area for enjoying the dramatic Damaraland landscape. There are no large concentrations of wildlife, however, this seemingly stark environment is amazingly home to a range of wildlife including desert-adapted elephant, gemsbok, springbok, and a variety of other species such as bat-eared fox, with the occasional glimpse of black rhino, and cheetah. Birdlife is excellent with several Namibian endemics, such as Damara hornbill, Carp's tit, and Rüpell's korhaan.

Accommodation: the design and décor of the 16 natural-walled units (including a family unit) blend in with the surrounding scenery. Each unit comprises a bedroom, bathroom, outdoor shower, and veranda for stargazing or sleep-outs under the stars. There are indoor and outdoor dining areas, a pool area and a Safari Trading Store.

Purpose: Doro Nawas Camp is a joint venture between Wilderness, the Doro Nawas community and a Namibian empowerment company, meaning guests contribute to the economic growth of the local community.


Doro Nawas Camp is a stuning lodge set in a stunning Damaraland location.
