Onduli Ridge, named after the resident desert giraffe, is nestled amongst giant granite boulders in an elevated position which maximises the dramatic views of this extraordinary desert landscape.
Located on a private concession in the Doro Nawas Conservancy in the heart of Damaraland, Onduli Ridge is a mere 20 minutes away from the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Twyfelfontein, and is surrounded rugged folded hills, plains and wooded river valleys in a largely semi-desert and sparse savannah. The well thought design of the camp maximises the views of the remarkable landscape by day, whilst at night a plethora of stars decorate the sky. Meticulous attention to detail are demonstrated in the camp's facilities which include a library, spacious lounge and dining room plus there's plenty of space to laze, be it by pool by day, or the cosy campfire by night.
Onduli Ridge has just six en-suite rooms, hidden amongst the granite boulders, where the more temperate climate of central Damaraland allows for naturally ventilation and partial open-air bathrooms. King size beds are cooled by their own ‘climate conditioner’, making it the perfect place for an afternoon siesta. The bed can also be rolled out onto your private deck for a night under star studded skies. Each suite also has louvered shutters, which can be opened for stunning views and a cooling breeze, or kept closed to enjoy the privacy at this secluded site.
Enjoy a game drive through this mystifying region or explore via a nature walk or by e-bike. Nearby Twyfelfontein is home to the incredible rock art 'gallery' and the petrified forest; whilst Brandberg and Doros Crater are worthwhile sights. Local residents of the animal kingdom include cheetah, leopard, lion and hyena, and with the possibility for rhino and elephant tracking, days can be spent as active and adventurous as you like.
