Damaraland

Call 01242 547 702 to speak to a specialist Enquire


Namibia is famed for the land of great contrasts and the area of Damaraland is no exception.  The backdrop of this impressive region is the Brandberg Mountains, which flow down onto the valleys floors around them.  Here on these stark plains you will find ancient valleys and petrified forests which are some 200 million years old.  Rock art dating back 100's of years can be viewed in the ravines and caves of the Brandberg Mountains.

The area is home to the endangered desert elephant which have adapted so well to this harsh region where water and food are hard to find.  They tend to roam around the areas of the dry riverbed and can sometimes be seen standing on their back legs to reach the very last leaf with their trunks.  The desert adapted black rhino is also found in Damaraland and can be trekked on foot with some skilled rangers.
