About Doro Nawas Camp
The Damaraland landscape varies from rocky floodplains to dramatic sand dunes. Here you will find Doro Nawas, comprising of 16 units, the design and décor blend seamlessly with the surroundings. The thatched units benefit from an en suite bedroom with outdoor shower and private veranda - perfect for sleeping out under the stars.
The main area of the lodge consists of indoor and outdoor dining areas, a pool area, bar and local curio area. A staircase to the roof allows for relaxing sun downers and stargazing. 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. Birdlife is excellent with several Namibian endemics, such as Damara Hornbill, Carp's Tit and Rüpell's Korhaan.
