Doro Nawas Camp is situated in the dry Aba-Huab River Valley, within the Doro Nawas Conservancy in the central Kunene region of Namibia. The camp is sited to command spectacular views of the Etendeka Mountains to the north and the red sandstone cliffs of Twyfelfontein to the south.
Accommodation at Doro Nawas Camp consists of sixteen units: a mix of natural stone and canvas walls with wood and glass doors, shaded by a thatch roof. Each unit is designed to blend into the surrounding scenery and comprises a bedroom, en-suite bathroom (with outdoor shower) and a veranda for stargazing or sleep outs.
The main building of Doro Nawas Camp is perched on a rocky knoll and consists of indoor and outdoor dining areas, a pool area and a bar. A staircase to the roof allows for relaxing sundowners and stargazing in the amazing clear night skies.
Doro Nawas Camp provides an excellent base for self-drive and fly-in guests with the remote airstrip acting as a hub for camps further north such as Serra Cafema.
Activities revolve around extensive game drives and exploratory hikes through this incredibly ancient landscape. A trip to the fascinating Twyfelfontein, a world heritage site, to view the San rock art engravings is not to be missed.
Game viewing at Doro Nawas Camp concentrates on the animals found in the largely dry riverbeds and along the valleys that fill during exceptionally wet seasons. There are no large concentrations of wildlife in this part of Namibia, but the region is home to desert-adapted elephant, gemsbok, springbok and variety of other species such as the bat-eared fox. Birdlife is excellent with several Namibian endemics, such as Damara Hornbill, Carp’s Tit and Rüpell’s Korhaan.
