Damaraland is beautifully arid and spectacularly unforgiving! One of the most scenic places in Namibia, in the height of the dry winter or the rains of summer. Here you find unique experiences, attractions like Burnt Mountain, Rock Art at Twyfelfontein and geological wonders like the Petrified Forest. It is also home to the local tribe of Himba people still living and dressing to ancient traditions. Damaraland is vast and awe-inspiring. Whether flying in or self-driving through it works as a stopover destination between the Etosha Pan and the coastline. We have put together some fabulous suggested itineraries for Namibian vacations.
