Camel Man at Twyfelfontein

Desert elephant in DamaralandTwyfelfontein Country Lodge near the world famous Twyfelfontein rock engravings in Damaraland now offers guests the opportunity to explore this starkly beautiful area by camel. Unlimited space allows the nine camels to walk in any direction leaving a light carbon footprint as there is no noise or pollution to the environment.

A half day excursion will take you to the various ancient Bushmen rock engraving sites between the rock boulders. You can also visit the Damara village not far from the lodge to experience age-old Damara customs in a unique setting.

You can also opt for a longer camel safari combined with camping under the stars and then trekking by camel through the dry riverbeds of the Huab and Ugab valleys – home to the desert adapted elephant of Damaraland in Namibia.
