Doro Nawas


Sleep under the stars in Damaraland

Far away from the bright lights of the big city, Doro Nawas Camp in the dry Aba-Huab River Valley treats guests to one of the clearest and most astounding views of the night sky. Here you’re in for a star-gazing experience of a different kind: each of the 16 Rooms comes with a verandah made for special sleep-outs under stars.

During the day, however, your verandah is a window to another view altogether: dramatic mountains and canyons of Damaraland, dry riverbeds, stark savannah plains, and the red sandstone cliffs of nearby Twyfelfontein. The latter is a World Heritage Site boasting ancient San rock art, and trips to this geological wonder can be arranged. Or go on a scenic drive or guided walk and stand the chance to see springbok, gemsbok, or even elephant.

The rooms are made from a mix of stone and canvas, allowing them to blend in with the stark landscape. Each room comes with an en suite bathroom and outdoor shower. You can mingle with your fellow travellers in the main area which includes a dining area, a pool, bar, and a curio shop.
