The Doros crater, is the remains of a meteor impact event. The view from the rim of the Doros crater is fantastic.
This area is very much a wilderness area, and there are no facilities or fuel.
The surrounding walls of the crater add to the sense of isolation. The walls aren’t equally high all the way round – the northern and eastern sections are the highest. Almost right in the middle there’s a large flattish granite rock for picnicking.
Set aside at least half-a-day to explore the area immediately north to the crater. This is a very interesting and beautiful landscape.
A nice approach to travelling to this crater, is along the West side of Brandberg D2342 to Brandberg West Mine / Ugab Save the Rhino Trust Camp. After that the route to take will be a 4x4 trail, which is recommended for experienced off roaders only.
Take note that the D2303 is an extremely corrugated road. Note that on the Tracks4Africa map the roads shown with a thick line are ok two-spoor tracks but the dotted ones are slow and rocky. (Apr-14).
The track between Twyfelfontein and the 'Ugab Save the Rhino Trust Camp' is very remote. It is not completely deserted, as tourers are using it every day, so in the case of a breakdown help will come soon, but just make sure you have sufficient water. Do not go astray and explore side tracks. Use a good GPS with a track on it. (Nov-14).
