Doro Nawas Lodge
Open Year Round
Doro Nawas Lodge rests on the edge of the dry Aba-Huab River overlooking ancient plains with glorious views of the rugged Damaraland area. The camp is an excellent base for exploring in game drive vehicles and on foot.
Daily game drives as well as night drives are possible as well as excursions to view fascinating geological phenomena. Petroglyphs – prehistoric rock engravings – and San rock art at Twyfelfontein, Namibia’s first World Heritage Site. These engravings are a wonder to see and expert guides interpret each scene. The rock are here are Africa’s largest collection of prehistoric rock art.
The lodge has incredibly expansive views for 360 degrees of stark Damaraland scenery. Sunsets here are epic! Sleep out under the stars for a star display like you will never see again. Spend some quiet time on the deck and you may perhaps see a herd of specially adapted desert Elephants.
This area does not hold large concentrations of wildlife. Though, what seems to be a bleak environment is incredibly home to a range of wildlife. These include desert-adapted Elephant, Gemsbok, Springbok and a variety of other species. Rare sightings include Bat-Eared Fox and the occasional glimpse of Black Rhino and Cheetah. Birdlife is excellent with several Namibian endemics, such as Damara Hornbill, Carp’s tit and Rüpell’s Korhaan.

Children of all ages are accommodated and are permitted to participate in activities with all other guests.
