Camp Doros

Camp Doros is deliberately small and intimate, and it is located in a core area for desert adapted black rhino with activities largely focused on finding the black rhino with an experienced and qualified Rhino Ranger team. Camp Doros is perched on a high bank overlooking a (generally) dry riverbed and groves of Mopane trees in the heart of Damaraland. Protected from the prevailing winds, the camp carries arguably the lowest environmental footprint of any camp in Namibia. Six shaded guest tents (one of which is a family unit) are raised on platforms and have twin and limited double beds, cupboards, solar power for lighting and charging points, as well as hot running showers and en suite flush toilets. The camp also has a spacious common area including bar serving area, dining room, lounge with fireplaces and a campfire deck, as well as a welcome plunge pool and sun deck. There is a focus on personalized service delivery, and this includes hearty and scrumptious meals which are prepared in a largely solar and wood-fired kitchen. The essence of the camp is immersive exploration of this incredible area.
