DAMARALAND HOLIDAYS

An area of untamed scenic beauty, Damaraland offers a fascinating range of landscapes and environments to explore, ranging from huge open grassland plains to mountains and gorges, with desert prevalent as you move further west.

Named after the Damara tribal people, the area has several areas of specific interest that bring visitors, including the highest mountain in Namibia - The Brandberg, or 'Fire Mountain'. The name is derived from the effects of the setting sun on the face of the mountain, giving an extraordinary orange glow. The mountain has some fascinating carved art and engravings, as does Twyfelfontein which has one of the largest collections in the whole of Africa.

Close to Twyfelfontein lies two interesting features, Burnt Mountain and the 'Organ Pipes', a geological feature caused by weathering around dolorite pillars. Burnt Mountain get its name from the areas of black limestone that surround the base.

The Petrified Forest is over 200 million years old, and features ancient wood, petrified in river silt and slowly exposed by erosion.The Spitzkoppe is a ancient volcanic remnant very popular with climbers, as is the Brandberg.

Wildlife is present in abundance, with elephants, ostriches, black rhino and springbok all part of this extraordinary landscape.
