Doro Nawas Namibia

Nestled against a small hill overlooking ancient plains and the typical tabletop escarpment is Doro Nawas.
The camp is situated in the rugged beauty of the Damaraland area. The unique design and lodge outline 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 that have all the signs of possible elephant sighting while relaxing on a private veranda

A trip to the fascinating Twyfelfontein San art engravings is not to be missed.

This combination of Africa past and present makes for a truly unique and unforgettable experience.

Wildlife viewing at Doro Nawas Camp concentrates on the game found in the riverbed and along the valleys that fill with floodwaters during particularly good rainy seasons. 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. This includes the occasional glimpse of the endangered black rhino and cheetah. Birdlife is excellent with several Namibian endemics, such as Damara Hornbill, Carp's Tit and Rüpell's Korhaan.

A visit to Doro Nawas Camp is also a wonderful opportunity to contribute to economic empowerment of the local community while enjoying a luxury safari experience.
