Blending into the backdrop and set amid stony slopes, rugged boulders, the distant Entendeka Mountains, and the pink and russet sandstone cliffs of Twyfelfontein to the south (where you can visit some of the most famous San rock paintings and engravings in the world), this is classic Damaraland. What's more, this camp may be your best bet to see the long-legged desert elephants. You'll stay in a sturdy en-suite stone, canvas, and thatch unit with an indoor and outdoor shower. You can relax in the rim-flow style pool after a day's activities, or climb up to the roof area of the main building to sip sundowners or watch the blazing stars. The staff seem genuinely thrilled to meet you and this carries through to their service.
