Damaraland Tours and Travels

About Damaraland

Surrounded by untamed desert and wilderness, Damaraland is a thrilling African getaway, which showcases some of the most extreme scenery in all of Namibia. Deep gorges and open plains make up vast swathes of the landscape along with ancient water trails and patches of dry, coarse grass. Towards the west of the region the vegetation grows increasingly sparse and the dominant feature becomes the endless sand. Named after the Damara people who historically inhabited the region, Damaraland is the perfect destination for the adventurous traveller looking for a challenge.
