The remote mountainous area of Damaraland is one of stark arid plains, with its deep chasms and dramatic red, rocky peaks dominated by the massive Brandberg Mountains.

Early morning mists drift inland providing sustenance to various life forms and the natural laws of food and water dictate the movement of the endangered desert elephant, black rhino, gemsbok, greater kudu and springbok. Lion and cheetah move in and out of the area and keen birders have the chance to see the endemic Monteiro’s hornbill, and Ruppell’s parrot.
