Twyfelfontein rock engravings
Damaraland is one of the most interesting and stunning places in Namibia. It is situated north of the Swakopmund – Windhoek line (Erongo) and south of Kaokoland (Kunene). Its interior is characterised by table mountains, hills and ravines.
Famous formations include Namibia’s highest mountain (Königsberg in the Brandberg Massif, 2606 m), the Vingerklip (a rock needle) and the Spitzkoppe (Namibia’s 700 m high Matterhorn). It is also well worth visiting Twyfelfontein to see the world-renowned rock engravings – a little touristic, but also a World Heritage Site.

The remote west of Damaraland is particularly interesting. It includes the Palmweg Concession with its abundance of rhino, and the Torra Conservancy, which is also a haven for desert elephant.
