Ondjamba Hills is nestled within some of the most iconic landscapes in Damaraland, 40km northwest of Uis next to the Ugab River.

Ondjamba Hills offers an eclectic fusion of nature, rustic old-world safari charm with modern chic, creating harmony with the dramatic environment and nature.

Ondjamba Hills offers 20 randomly placed large Meru-style safari tents (10m x 5m) with en-suite bathrooms and outside veranda with seating arrangements that offers spectacular views over the Brandberg Mountain.

The camp is fully off-grid, having its own boreholes for water and being powered by solar energy with a back-up generator. Although the camp is powered by solar, water is heated using old-school, traditional “donkies” (geysers heated by fire) adding the sense of uniqueness of the great outdoors and the smell of woodsmoke.

Everything at Ondjamba is about the romance and experience of travel in Africa. Untouched wilderness at your doorstep, with views on the majestic Brandberg (Namibia’s highest Mountain) and the ephemeral Ugab River Valley and the granite “koppies” dotted in the landscape. Even the restaurant lights were placed with the starry Namibian skies in mind.

The common areas are built from brick, wooden poles, thatch, and canvas – all circular structures to fit in aesthetically with the granite boulders in the area. Its architecture lets the structures blend into the surrounding boulders dotted around the area with some even being part of the infrastructure.

The highlight however remains the pristine landscape the camp is located in.


20 custom built and meticulously planned 10mx5m Meru-style safari tents offer guests beautiful desert views from a private veranda, each tent features a brick en-suite bathroom. The rising sun will gently wake you to privileged desert views and breathtakingly beautiful scenery.
