  • Sunning views from the main area across Damaraland

  • Have your bed moved onto the deck for a night under the bright Namibian stars

  • Family cottage

  • Visit the ancient San rock art at Twyfelfontein

Doro Nawas is situated in the ruggedly beautiful Damaraland area of Namibia, on a small rocky outcrop within the floodplain of a small tributary of the Huab River. The camp is located on the edge of the dry Aba-Huab River with spectacular vistas of the Etendeka Mountains to the north and the red sandstone cliffs of Twyfelfontein (famous for its San rock engravings) to the south.

The unique lodge design allows for an unspoilt panoramic view of this diverse and dramatic landscape, which varies from tabletop outcrops, small canyons, dry riverbeds to wide grassland vistas. The magnificent terrain holds the possibility of a sighting of the rare desert-adapted elephant while enjoying a nature drive.

The sixteen elegant rooms are built in a combination of natural stone and canvas walls with wood and glass doors and thatched roofs. The main camp area is made up of indoor and outdoor rooftop dining areas, a pool area, bar, curio and small gallery and leads to a picturesque courtyard and staircase to the roof that allows for relaxing sundowners and stargazing. Absorb the dazzling African skies from your rooftop terrace before settling down for the night in your safe and comfortable room.
