Garnet Ghost Town Secret Spot

We had a great visit to the ghost town, but be aware that dispersed camping is NOT allowed near here. The ranger explained that dispersed camping is prohibited due its close proximity to historical structures, which is a BLM policy.

Skull hollow. Established Campground + Wild Camping

Great campground with spacious sites. Look for spots with trees as it can get hot in the afternoon.

Mount Sheba

This lodge and resort has a grassy campground area with shared ablutions. Friendly staff. Near local hiking trails.

Sukuza Camp

This was a good stop in Kruger. We secured a spot that day. Shade was hard to come by, but there was a pool for cooling off. Good jumping off spot for an early game drive. We saw a large lion pride not too far from camp.

Kruger N.P. - Crocodile Bridge

This was a good starting point for Kruger. We hadn’t intended on visiting Kruger but COVID-19 has us overhauling our plans. Campground was pretty simple, clean group ablutions, easy to head into the park on an early game drive.

Rietspruit Dam Resort

This was a great stopping off point between destinations. We paid 200r for one night (2 adults, low season, kids were free). Lots of activities for our kids. Friendly owner. Ablutions were clean. Lake side setting was really nice.

Etosha - Okaukuejo Campsite

The water hole is the highlight here for sure. We stayed two nights. Not much shade and no water at our site, but we saw many rhinos and a lion and lioness walk up to the water hole after dark. Ablutions were fine and a separate area for dishes and laundry was helpful. Our kids also loved the pools. WiFi was down and unavailable.

Windpomp 14

This was a great pit stop on our way north. The ablutions were new and private to each site. There was a small kitchen with a refrigerator inside as well. Right near the ocean with different pricing for how close you stay. The restaurant looked nice too.

Sesriem Campsite - NWR

This was one of our more expensive campsites (booked online in advance). You pay for the right to be in the park before sunrise. The campsite was ok, with one large tree and water. Ablutions were shared. The restaurant and store had a friendly staff and WiFi was good.

Sossus Oasis

This was a nice campground with private ablutions, shade and a pool. Hyenas and jackals did get into our trash right after people settled for the night, but we learned to be more careful after that. We would definitely stay again.

Maritz Country Lodge

This was a good overnight stop with a pool and free WiFi. Nothing special, but exactly what we needed in between destinations.

Kgalagadi Lodge

This was a great alternative to staying in the park, which was full when we were there. We had our own ablutions and shade from the sun. Friendly staff and nice pool. We woke up to a zebra right outside our tent.

Augrabies Falls NP

This was a nice campground, close to game drives and the waterfall, which is lit up at night. Baboons were keeping a close eye on our food. Ablutions were fine.
