Doro Nawas Camp
Features & Highlights
Doro Nawas Camp Summary
Nestled against a small hill overlooking ancient plains and the typical Etendeka tabletop escarpment is Doro Nawas Camp.
The camp is situated in the rugged beauty of the Damaraland area. The unique camp design allows for an unspoilt panoramic view of this diverse and dramatic landscape that varies from tabletop outcrops, small canyons, dry riverbeds and savannah-filled vistas. Here activities are varied, ranging from simply relaxing on a private veranda, to enjoying a 4×4 nature and game drive.
Doro Nawas Camp Description
Guests are housed in 16 canvas walled units with thatched roofs, the design and décor blending into the surrounding scenery, with attention to comfort and luxury. Each unit consists of a bedroom that leads onto a veranda for stargazing or sleep outs. En-suite facilities include a shower, ‘his and her’ basins and a flush toilet.
The main area is elevated on a hillock and is made up of the indoor and outdoor dining areas, the residential pool area and bar.
ACTIVITIES & WILDLIFE
Activities include nature drives appreciating the spectacular views and desert scenery in the community run Doro Nawas Conservancy. Wildlife viewing concentrates on the game found in the Aba-Huab and Haub riverbeds and along the valleys that sometimes fill with floodwater in the rainy season. There are no large concentrations of wildlife, but this arid environment is home to desert-adapted elephant, gemsbok, springbok and variety of other species such as bat-eared fox
Another highlight is the opportunity to visit the ancient rock art site at Twyfelfontein with its renowned San art engravings and the largest collection of petroglyphs – prehistoric rock art – in Africa. Doro Nawas 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.
