Doro Nawas

Doro Nawas lies in the 407,300 hectare Doro Nawas Conservancy on the slopes of a small hill on the edge of the dry Aba-Huab River, overlooking ancient plains with glorious views of the rugged Damaraland area.

The camp has exceptional 360 degree views of the rugged Damaraland ranging from the Etendeka Mountains in the north to the red sandstone cliffs of Twyfelfontein in the south.

Sixteen stone, wood, glass and thatch chalets, one of which is a family unit, are built on stone bases at the foot of the hill and blend seamlessly into the surrounds.  Each chalet includes a bedroom, en-suite facilities with an indoor and outdoor shower, mosquito net, ceiling fan, roll out bed and glass doors leading onto a veranda for views, star-gazing or sleep-outs. The communal living areas are perched atop a sparse, rocky knoll with unspoilt dramatic views. Here guests can dine indoors or out; enjoy the open fireplace, bar, curio shop and lap pool.  A staircase to the roof allows for relaxing sundowners and stargazing.

The camp provides an excellent base for exploring the local area in game drive vehicles and on foot, combining a luxury safari experience with economic empowerment for the local community. Guests can view petroglyphs – prehistoric rock engravings – and San rock art at Twyfelfontein, Namibia’s first World Heritage Site. The combination of Africa’s past and present makes Doro Nawas a fascinating visit.
