Damaraland, Namibia

Bordered by Windhoek, the Kalahari Desert, the Namib Desert and Ovamboland, Damaraland is a unique Namibian attraction to witness whilst on safari with Jenman. It contains some of the most scenic areas in the country, and a Namibian safari to Damaraland will brings tourists into the company of desert elephants, black rhinos, ostriches and springbok. Damaraland also contains four well known areas that are Namibian highlights and safari attractions, they are: Brandberg, Twyfelfontein, Spitzkoppe and the Petrified Forest. Brandberg is well known for the ‘white lady’ , a bushman rock painting; Twyfelfontein is a rocky mountain area filled with historic paintings (1000 AD); Spitzkoppe is an unusual mountain peak (thought to be a broken apart volcano); and the Petrified Forest dates back to millions of years ago.

Damaraland is a must for nature-lovers as it brings them up-close to the spectacular fauna and flora of Namibia which is why we love taking our clients to this region. The community who lives in the region has worked hard to protect the region from poachers and general destruction, making it a sight worth seeing for those with a similar passion for nature.

When planning a Namibian safari with us that includes a visit to Damaraland, it’s best to do so during the months between May and September when the weather is cooler (averaging at 26 ºC in the day and about 8 ºC in the evenings!)
