Doro Nawas Camp Game Viewing and Activities

The camp provides an excellent base for exploring the local area in game drive vehicles and on foot, taking in the spectacular views and desert scenery. There are no large concentrations of wildlife here, but this arid environment is home to, gemsbok, springbok and variety of other species, including occasional glimpses of the endangered black rhino. Guided trips to the Haub riverbed to find the Desert Adapted Elephant can be organised through the Lodge. Birdlife is excellent with several Namibian endemics such as Monteiro's Hornbill and Rüpell's Korhaan.

A highlight here is the fascinating expedition to Twyfelfontein, Namibia's first World Heritage Site, with its renowned San art engravings, and the largest collection of petroglyphs - prehistoric rock art in Africa as well as geological formations such as the Petrified Forest, Burnt Mountain and Organ Pipes. Wildlife viewing concentrates on the game found in the riverbed and along the valleys that sometimes fill with floodwater in the rainy season. Other activities in the area include mountain biking and the Sandstone Ridge Trail.
