Where is the Damaraland?
Nestled in the Kunene Region of north-west Namibia, Damaraland’s arid landscapes stretch from the Brandberg mountain’s dramatic massif to the imperial town of Sesfontein.
Traveller’s can opt for an internal flight from Windhoek, or take the scenic route driving from Swakopmund through the picturesque Erongo Region. As you get further inland you can witness the landscape constantly evolve from rugged mountains to arid plains and make pit stops at the fascinating imperial towns and rock arts sites along the way.
What to do in the Damaraland?
A haven away from the tourists, the Damaraland has enough range to keep the whole family simultaneously entertained and lost for words.
Renowned for its dramatic landscapes, marvel at the awe-inspiring Brandberg Mountain – the highest peak in Namibia – and take a guided tour to the infamous ‘White Lady’ rock painting deep in the mountain. And for more of an insight into ancient bushman culture, visit the 2,500 ancient San rock paintings at Twyfelfontein, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Take a guided game drive along Damaraland’s seasonal river beds in the Aba-Huab Valley or Palmwag Concession to observe remarkable desert-adapted wildlife, including elusive desert elephants, black rhinos, and rare antelope species.
Active families can also visit the Spitzkoppe area, home to a group of ancient granite peaks, and popular with walkers and climbers.
Best time to visit?
The Damaraland can be visited all year round thanks to its consistently dry weather patterns.
For wildlife viewing the dry season from June to October are prime, as the animals tend to congregate around the remaining permanent water sources and are easier to find. This time of year is your best bet if you want to see the elusive black rhino.
Who should visit?
Families should consider the Damaraland as an extraordinary destination for a myriad of enriching experiences.
The region’s striking landscapes, including the renowned Brandberg Mountain and ancient rock engravings of Twyfelfontein, offer an educational adventure that can captivate the imagination of young explorers and their parents alike.
And thrilling safaris across the plains, with no other tourists in sight, are sure to appeal to adventurous families who want a truly authentic African safari experience in one of Southern Africa’s last truly wild landscapes.
