Camp Doros




Camp Doros is deliberately small and intimate, and it is located in a core area for desert adapted black rhino with activities largely focused on tracking rhino with an experienced and qualified Rhino Ranger team. Camp Doros is perched on a high bank overlooking a (generally) dry riverbed and groves of Mopane trees in the heart of Damaraland. Protected from the prevailing winds, the camp carries arguably the lowest environmental footprint of any camp in Namibia.

Six shaded guest tents (one of which is a family unit) are raised on platforms. The camp also has a spacious common area including bar, dining room and lounge, as well as a welcome plunge pool. There is a focus on personalized service delivery, and this includes hearty and scrumptious meals which are prepared in a largely solar and wood-fired kitchen. The essence of the camp is ‘under canvas and experiential’.

Doros Joint Management Area

The Doros Joint Management Area is largely sparse semi-arid mountainous savanna, with wooded ephemeral river valleys separating hills and plains and it boasts some of the most magnificent views in Damaraland. As it has a number of natural springs providing water throughout the year for desert-adapted wildlife, the area is home to desert-adapted Elephant, black Rhino and general plains game, including Kudu, Giraffe, Springbok, Oryx, Klipspringer and Steenbok, as well as predators such as Cheetah, Leopard, spotted and brown Hyena.
