The Torra Conservancy showcases the best of the Damaraland landscape: stark and surreal surroundings drenched in sunlight. And best of all? Seclusion. Damaraland Camp on the northern bank of the Huab River Valley is a great base from which to explore the fascinating environment of this region.
Guided walks, game drives, mountain biking trips among the age-old geological formations, rock art and rare succulents hold the promise of spotting desert-adapted elephant, ostrich, Hartmann’s mountain zebra, springbok, gemsbok – or, if you’re lucky, the endangered black rhino. The region is also a mecca for birdwatching with Rüppell’s korhaan, Monteiro’s hornbill and Herero chat among the recorded birds in the area.
The camp itself consists of 10 thatched suites clustered around the main boma which includes a fireplace, bar and swimming pool. The suites come with en-suite bathrooms, a large dressing room and spacious deck from which you can take in the ochre landscape or the starry, unspoilt night sky.
