Damaraland is one of the most scenic areas in Namibia; a beautifully dramatic landscape that offers even the most experienced explorer a more adventurous challenge. Prehistoric water courses with open plains and untamed grasslands, rugged gorges and wild-desert mountains give a glorious backdrop for wildlife-watching.

Home to critically endangered black rhinos, desert-adapted lions and elephants, as well as the full range of Namibian specialties such as gemsbok, zebra, giraffe and spotted hyena, Damaraland is a safari-lovers paradise.

Geographical highlights of the area include the magnificent rock formations of Twyelfontein and Spitzkoppe, covered in some of Southern Africa’s finest prehistoric rock art and engravings. Similarly, Namibia’s highest mountain, the Brandberg, is home to the famous ‘White Lady’ Bushman painting.

Other interesting places to visit are the Petrified Forest, an accumulation of enormous fossilized tree trunks roughly 280 million years old, and the Damara Living Museum, which gives an opportunity to experience traditional Damara culture.

From historical culture to spectacular landscapes, Damaraland is an alluring destination one would not want to miss.
