Doro Nawas Camp
Doro Nawas rests on a small hill on the edge of the dry Aba-Huab River overlooking ancient plains with glorious views of the rugged Damaraland area within the starkly beautiful Doro Nawas Conservancy. This is prime desert-adapted elephant country and clear nights offer ample opportunity for magnificent stargazing, while the ancient rock art of Twyfelfontein is a glimpse into a long-gone world.
The camp provides an excellent base for exploring the local area in game drive vehicles and on foot, taking in the spectacular views, desert scenery and the wildlife including gemsbok, springbok and occasional black rhino and cheetah. The 16 tents are all designed to blend into the surrounding scenery. Each room is a mix of natural stone and canvas walls with wood and glass doors, shaded by a thatch roof. An indoor and outdoor dining area, a pool, a bar and a curio shop all make up the general areas of the camp. A staircase to the roof leads to an area for relaxing sundowners and stargazing.
