Onduli Ridge

Nestled at the base of two majestic south-facing granite outcrops, Onduli Ridge Camp offers an unparalleled experience of Namibia's natural beauty. Named after the resident giraffes, the camp provides breathtaking views of Brandberg, Namibia’s highest mountain, and the cathedral-like granite inselbergs to the north.

Onduli Ridge is located on a private concession in the Doro !Nawas Conservancy in the heart of Damaraland, just 20 minutes away from the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Twyfelfontein. The landscape consists of rugged folded hills, plains, and wooded river valleys in a largely semi-desert and sparse savannah. Named after the Doros Crater, Doro !Nawas means ‘the place where rhinos roam’ in the Khoekhoegowab language, and as the name suggests the area is home to desert-adapted black rhino, who share the land with elephants, and general plains game. It is also a territory for predators such as cheetah, leopard, lion, and both spotted and brown hyena. The diversity of wildlife in this area makes it a truly remarkable and unique destination for nature lovers and wildlife enthusiasts alike.

At Onduli Ridge Camp, guests can embark on a thrilling game drive along the ephemeral, exploring the region and searching for elusive desert-adapted elephants. The nearby Twyfelfontein World Heritage Site offers a fascinating exploration of ancient rock art 'petroglyphs,' providing insight into the area's rich history. For those who enjoy walking, guided walks with expert guides reveal the diverse and captivating local landscape at almost any time of day. Additionally, guests staying for three nights can participate in a special Rhino Activity, working with SRT and Rhino Rangers to track and view these rare animals in their natural habitat. These varied and immersive experiences ensure a memorable stay at Onduli Ridge Camp. This camp is not just a destination but an immersive experience, effortlessly blending luxury with the natural world, promising a genuinely unforgettable stay in the heart of Damaraland.
