A good place to stay for being the first at the Dunes. Large space for camping. May need better showers and toilette. But ok. Be careful if you go with 4x4 to the dunes. It is a little bit tricky. Decrease your tires pressure.

All one's needs were catered for. The swimming-pool was so welcome in the March heat. A negative factor is the dust from all the vehicles rushing past towards Sossusvlei. Campers should not leave food where jackals can reach it.

Very beautiful place. Had the time of our lives. We had arrived very late (around 9h30 pm) but the staff waited for us until 10pm to ensure that we had checked-in. I would highly recommend this campsite for everyone who loves adventures and is outdoorsy :-)

We went on a self-driving holidays in Namibia and stayed here 2 nights. Excelent site: wide, quite private, awsome views of the surrounding mountains, very nice and clean wc. Very good conditions to cook your meals as well. Nice shop but no wifi. On the negative side, it is very dangerous to stay in because everybody that comes in (and...

There was shade, electricity, a small pool to use and a separate bathroom what I enjoyed. It is located next to a petrol-station (therefore not too calm). We were staying one night and for that it was suitable.

We hired a camper so the camp site was sufficiently equipped, complete with a beautiful resident bug and Jackal. The camp sites are arranged in a shoe horse formation and are limited in number and dispersed so as to provide privacy and tranquility. The facilities were clean and simple, not detracting from the beauty of the environment. The camp site...

This camping has the better stricture we visited, I would recommended it for everyone. Each car has its own bungalow, with two sinks, one shower and one toilet. The water has the rigth temperature, hoter than expected sometimes. But again, bet camp site we visited.
