Welcome to Damaraland, where flat-topped mountain ranges crowd the horizon and prehistoric rock paintings decorate the burnt-orange landscape. In this vast wilderness of highlands, grasslands and gorges, desert-adapted animals roam through forests of bone-limbed petrified trees and dinosaur footprints are stamped into the dust. Namibia’s highest peak, Brandberg, known as Fire Mountain for its sunrise and sunset glow, attracts climbers from all over the planet, along with Spitzkoppe’s Matterhorn-shaped volcanic peak that looms 1,728 metres above the desert plains.
Come to Damaraland to peruse southern Africa’s most impressive rock art collection in the Twyfelfontein region. Protected as a UNESCO site, the open-air gallery features over 2,500 animal shapes and geometric designs carved over thousands of years by Namibia’s nomadic hunter-gatherers. The ancestors of these native people can be visited today, including the Damara, San and Himba tribes, who wear a thick ochre sunscreen and continue to live in the arid environment among geological wonders and wild animals.
