4X4 SELF DRIVE : DAMARALAND

This 4x4 self drive tour explores Damaraland offering the Twyfelfontein Rock engravings and the Abah-Huab River.

Windhoek to Damaraland

Your adventure starts as you depart Windhoek to Damaraland. Breakfast can be enjoyed in Omaruru. Omaruru means "bitter milk" in Herero - possibly since local bush which the cows consumed, gave their milk a bitter taste. The Omaruru River runs through the town and the beautiful Erongo Mountains surrounds it. Similar to a lot of towns in Namibia - Omaruru started as a mission station. During the violent Herero rebellion, the town was hugely affected and the Franke Tower was erected in 1908 as a watchtower for possible future attacks. Omaruru has now become a hot-spot for artists practicing their skills. Afterwards the journey continues to Twyfelfontein area, where lunch will be served. Twyfelfontein has a collection of rock art that decorate the boulders found in the area and it is an exceptional record of ancient traditions and customs. These engravings are regarded as one of the richest collections in Africa and the art found here is evidence than man arrived at this beautiful landscape thousands of years ago. Dinner and overnight at Xaragu Camp or similar.

Damaraland

Here your first 4x4 expedition in the Aba-Huab River can begin. There is a chance of spotting the desert adapted elephant while you enjoy the morning exploring the river area. Return to Xaragu Camp for the evening.

Damaraland
Continue on your journey, which will take you via Palmwag to Van Zyl’s Gate. We suggest you enjoy lunch in the Khowarib River by the waterfall, the journey continues further north to Warm Quelle.

Travelling via the Hoanib River to Sesfontein. Most of your day will be spent in this area.

Damaraland to Windhoek

Your last morning in this wilderness has dawned and you start making your way back to Windhoek, travelling via Grootberg, Outjo and Otjiwarongo. Otjiwarongo means "The Place where the fat cattle graze" - the name given by the original Herero people that settled here. During the 1900's, the Germans settled here and in 1906 Otjiwarongo officially became a town. The railway that was built from Swakopmund to the Otavi copper mine was a boost to Otjiwarongo's agricultural development.
