Damaraland’s hilly savannah supports a large number of species including lion, leopard, cheetah, hyena, eland, kudu, giraffe, klipspringer, steenbok, gemsbok and springbok. Birdlife is prolific with over 33 raptors recorded including cuckoo hawks, Egyptian vultures, and peregrine falcons – the world’s fastest animal.
Damaraland is divided into several enormous private game reserves, known as concessions, that support most species of Namibia’s large game and provide some of the best birding and wildlife experiences in the country – and southern Africa for that matter.
In the heat, dust and stunning landscapes of Damaraland, there is a sanctuary – Mowani Mountain Camp. Dwarfed by massive ochre boulders, the camp is absorbed into the landscape, making it one with our shared history of life in this prehistoric land. Every soft curve or ragged edge frames the landscape in a different way, as if you are seeing for the first time, every time. Lounging by the pool or relaxing on your private deck is also a wonderful way to enjoy the spectacular surroundings.
