Self-Drive Holidays Namibia are one of 2019’s biggest travel trends, and if you planning to explore this magnificent country in the coming year, Damaraland should be right up there at the top of your travel itinerary.
Why? Well, it’s remote (which is why many travellers skip it), it homes some of the world’s last remaining desert-adapted elephants and lions, and it boasts some of the most spectacular landscapes in Africa, and so it really is worth a visit. During your stay, you can visit the ancient rock engravings of Twyfelfontein, the petrified forests of Khorixas, and the Otjikandero Himba Orphan Village, which makes money from tourism, but is not what you would describe as ‘touristy’ at all.
During your trip to Twyfelfontein, you’ll have the opportunity to visit the Damara Living Museum for a brief insight into how the bushmen used to live in this part of the world. You’ll learn how Damara people used to make their tools, how they made their clothes from animal hides, and how they made highly effective medicines from the plants around them.
Finally, they show you what they do best…
