Aabadi Mountain Camp
Affordable lodge accommodation in Damaraland | Twyfelfontein
Aabadi Mountain Camp Twyfelfontein is located in Damaraland in the north west region of Namibia. This camp offers affordable accommodation close to Twyfelfontein World Heritage Site (only 18 km’s) as well as other attractions in Damaraland such as the Petrified Forest, Organ Pipes and Burnt Mountain. Aabadi Mountain Camp Twyfelfontein offers 7 en-suite safari style permanent tents with flushable toilets and warm water provided by a donkey. Damaraland is definitely worth visiting and we recommend including it in your self-drive itinerary. Some of the most dramatic landscapes in Namibia are to be found in Damaraland. Other reasons to visit Damaraland include the unique Desert Elephants and Desert Lions found in this region. The desert elephant population is one of only two populations in the world. It is remarkable how these two species survive in this environment.
Aabadi Mountain Camp also offers 5 spacious camping sites – large groups can be catered for. Many guests enjoy the feeling of experiencing the open air showers whilst being surrounded by the safety of rocks and still being able to take in the views of nature. Guests can take their breakfast or dinner in the open lounge or if they prefer in front of their tents. Aabadi has its own fruit and vegetable garden. Special dietary requirements can be catered for – please let us know in advance. The owner (Johannes Nauseb) and his family are from the area and will be there to greet you as you arrive for your stay.
Aabadi Mountain Camp is set in an open, spacious and natural setting surrounded by trees and small rocky mountains. It is not uncommon for guests to hear the approaching desert elephants walking along the river bed when they break off the branches of the Mopane Trees in order to eat the leaves. Guests enjoy climbing the mountains surrounding the Aba Huab river bed which gives them a good perspective of the vastness and harsh natural beauty of this region. Sundowners can be enjoyed whilst taking in the views.
Day trips to Twyfelfontein are a very popular activity to view one of the highest concentrations of rock art in the world. It is estimated that there are about 2500 rock engravings (known as petroglyphs) and rock paintings dating back between 2000-10000 years. Guided tours are available and give one an excellent insight into the lives and beliefs of the San (Bushman) people.
