The Damaraland in Namibia has a wild and rugged landscape and is one of Namibia’s least populated areas.
Southern Damaraland’s great attractions include the Spitzkoppe and the Brandberg Mountain, both home to a wealth of rock art.
Twyfelfontein has hundreds of engravings (mostly depicting animals) and is perfect for a few hour’s exploration. Driving to and from these you will often encounter donkey carts and tiny roadside stalls that sell gemstones and seed pod mobiles.
In Northern Damaraland there are thriving populations of wild game including gemsbok, kudu, springbok, Hartmann’s zebra, desert-adapted elephant and black rhino. Here, tracts of land have been designated ‘concession areas’.
