TRAVEL TO DAMARALAND

swirl 2

Damaraland is located between Etosha National Park, the Skeleton Coast and the Kaokoveld and is largely un-inhabited. Spectacular, rugged scenery contrasting with beautiful barren landscapes create a playground for adventure and experiential travel. The night sky is a myriad of twinkling stars where the ‘Milky Way’ is easily identified amidst the ancient constellations.

In Northern Damaraland you will discover rolling grasslands, flat-topped mountains, winding rivers and Acacia trees. In stark contrast, the southern region is the remnant of ancient volcanic activity which has left behind spectacular rock formations and a petrified forest.

The famous desert-adapted elephant have adapted their lifestyle to survive extreme conditions, along with black rhino, lion, giraffe, mountain zebra, ostrich and springbok.

Twyvelfontein in the south is regarded as the largest outdoor art gallery in the world, with over 2000 rock carvings and 13 sites of symbolic San paintings created over 10,000 years ago, now classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site and attracting thousands of visitors annually.
