Damaraland Tailormade Holidays

Damaraland was a name given to the north-central part of what later became Namibia, inhabited by Herero-speaking people, who in the 19th century were often referred to by outsiders as "Damaras". It was bounded roughly by Ovamboland in the north, the Namib Desert in the west, the Kalahari Desert in the east, and Windhoek in the south.

In the 1970s the name Damaraland was revived for a bantustan in South West Africa (present-day Namibia), intended by the apartheid government to be a self-governing homeland for the Damara people. A centrally administered local government was created in 1980. The bantustan Damaraland was situated on the western edge of the territory that had been known as Damaraland in the 19th century.

As well as the excitement of seeing the desert adapted black rhino and elephant, the predator population is said to be the largest outside Etosha National Park, with over one hundred lions, cheetah, leopard, spotted and brown hyena. There are good populations of Hartman’s Mountain Zebra, Giraffe, Oryx, Springbok, and Kudu and ostrich and other species adapted to arid conditions, Bird life is diverse and prolific with most of Namibia’s endemics present.
