"Damaraland" Top 5 Page for this destination Damaraland - Rock Art, Brandberg Tip by diageva

by diageva

Damaraland is the apartheid name the region of south of Kaokoland to Swakopmund used to had, but is still used.
Brandberg, Twyfelfontein, Petrified Forest, desert elephants (I didn't saw any of them), but I did saw zebras, springbox, kudu in our way, beautiful free wild animals living in a free land.

Home of Herero people and origen of Damara people. Dama means "who walked here" in Nama language (the languages of Damara people)

"The Damaraland community consists of a unique group of people who have recognised the value of the wildlife on their land and formed a Community Wildlife Conservancy to protect it."

Damaraland is one of the most beautifuls regions. This is the favorite region of our Herero guide Uanee.
