Onduli Ridge

Onduli Ridge, named after the region's resident giraffe, is situated at the foot of two south-facing granite cliffs. This location offers magnificent views of Namibia's highest mountain, the Brandberg, to the south and the scattered, cathedral-like granite island mountains to the north. The camp is designed so that the views of this extraordinary landscape can be enjoyed from as many places in the lodge as possible. Every room becomes a vantage point, whether from the bed, the desk or the bathroom, blurring the boundaries between indoors and out. The camp exudes character and meticulous attention to detail. Food that tantalises the palate and exceptional activities complement a truly unforgettable stay


There are only six suites in total, all designed to be naturally ventilated by the gentle desert breezes, eliminating the need for conventional air conditioning. Each suite has spacious and comfortable double beds facing the private terrace. The sliding doors can be fully opened and the bed can be rolled out onto the terrace. Sleeping under the stars and being woken by the first rays of the sun - that's what Onuli Ridge offers. Due to the sparsely populated nature of Damaraland, there is hardly any light pollution here, which makes for one of the most beautiful starry skies in the world. Each suite has a private, spacious bathroom with rain shower (some suites have outdoor bathrooms).

Accompanied by a glass of local wine or a refreshing drink, you can enjoy the evening in a convivial atmosphere and admire the backdrop of the spectacular Onduli Ridge landscape.

Onduli Ridge is situated in a private concession in the Doro !Nawas Conservancy in the heart of Damaraland and only 20 minutes 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 sparsely populated savannah. With some of the most magnificent views of Namibia's highest mountain, the Brandberg, and the typical cathedral-like granite island mountains of Damaraland, Onduli Ridge is within easy reach of other geological attractions such as Burnt Mountain, the Organ Pipes and Doros Crater. Named after Doros Crater, Doro !Nawas means "the place where rhinos roam" in the Khoekhoegowab language, and the area is home to desert-adapted black rhino, elephant as well as predators such as cheetah, leopard, lion, spotted and brown hyena.
