Guided drives in Damaraland can vary significantly depending on the area you are staying. In Palmwag the driving is usually focused on getting you close enough to black rhino to track them on foot, while in the Twyfelfontein, Huab and Brandberg areas the attention is more likely to be on searching for desert elephant. Wherever you’re based, it will often be more of a nature drive than a full-on game drive: although the volumes of wildlife are good and there are some true rarities to seek out, there will not be the vast numbers of game you would see in Etosha or the renowned safari destinations of Botswana and South Africa. Fabulous, dramatic scenery and a feeling of true isolation are guaranteed though. The endless horizons and imposing mountains of Damaraland combine to make the very few people who live or visit here feel rather small!
