Damaraland was the name given to the north-central part of what later became part of Namibia. The area is one of the most scenic places in Namibia and consists of dessert, dry riverbeds and fascinating rocks such as Spitzkoppe and Twyfelfontein. Besides the ancient rock paintings and carvings of the Bushmen, you should also visit the Organ Pipes and Burnt Mountain at Twyfelfontein, Namibia’s first UNESCO World Heritage. Enjoy a game drive through Damaraland to look for the special desert elephants that live in Damaraland. This elephant has adapted to the harsh desert environment and can survive days without water. Besides the magnificent elephants you will find species as the black rhino, lions, zebra’s, giraffes and the gemsbok.
