Charles Darwin would have had a field day here: there are more fossils, petrified forests and mountain ranges than you can shake a stick at. Keep a look-out for desert-adapted rhino and elephant during your stay, too. They look like their regular cousins, but centuries of living in dry conditions have made them particularly hardy.

We think Damaraland is a fascinating place to visit. What’s more, being outside of the national park means the lodges and camps can play an instrumental role in community projects and conservation.
