Damaraland is a special region with highlights such as the Brandberg, Twyfel Fountain and the rare desert elephants. When you come from…


Brandberg and White Lady in Damaraland

When you go inland from Cape Cross, you will pass the Brandberg,with the famous rock drawing 'White Lady'. More than 40,000 petroglyphs have been found in Brandberg and the surrounding area. The petroglyphs are all many thousands of years old. You'll drive through Damaraland,characterized by a vast and unspoilt wilderness with mountains in the background, bizarre rock formations and prehistoric petroglyphs. Due to the harsh and dry conditions, flora and fauna have had to adapt to maintain. Plants stay alive through the fog of the ocean and the relatively rare desert elephant has extra long legs and a longer trunk. The unique flora and fauna make this region unearthly and extraordinary.

Twyfel Fountain in Damaraland

More than 2,000 petroglyphs of the Bushmen have been found near Twyfelfontein. Images of giraffes, oryxes and other wildlife testify to a period when the region was more fertile than it is today. Twyfelfontein gets its name from a spring that only flows occasionally. In addition to the 'burnt mountain' Burnt Mountain and the 'petrified forest' Petrified Forest, you will also find the Organ Pipes, columns in the form of organ pipes, formed by erosion of volcanic rock.
