After the Amalfi coast we tried to sleep at the camp spot in Salerno but it was to loud and hot. So we drove 30 minutes to this perfect place in the mountains. Its very quiet at night and some degrees colder than at the coast. Some lights, so its not complete dark, but some darker spots.

When coming from the east, this is a good spot for the night. You cross the railway and are behind a wall of sand so that you are not seen from the road. You only hear the traffic in a distance, not disturbing. Just the passing trains are an experience, but we only had one during the night.

We travel by bicycle. Flat meadow above the river. Be careful the level of the river can change due to hydroelectric dam. We pitched our tent in a field just above the river.
There is water close to the bridge that we have drunk. Don’t know if it’s drinkable but it was ok.

Clean showers for $20, no laundry as far as I was able to figure out. It’s one of the older stores but they’re building a larger brand new facility right next door which will probably have even better amenities.

The ‘private beach’ is a highly recommended place. Spent here 2 days and nights. No one showed up.
For access 4x4 is mandatory due to some sandy passages if coming from harbour direction.
Temperature mid of April very hot during daytime (36-38°C); at nighttime 29-31°C. Due to high humidity - (60-75%) it feels very very hot..
a real pearl this piece of island!

A flat place, about thirty off the road. Along this part of road there isn't much place for camping due to vegetation and slopes.
Big rigs will fit, but not invisible from the road.

We just stopped here for a coffee and lunch. It is a nice spot indeed, lots of grass for good cover. Only down side is that the black flies were THICK today! 🪰🪰🪰

Totally recommend that place. As there are not so many options in Swakopmund, this is a really good address. Very central in the city but when you enter the campsite you do not feel that you are in the middle of the city. It’s big, have a nice and big chill/Picknick area and the bathrooms are so so nice and clean. There’s also a cat and the cute Labrador dog around saying hello sometimes at your place. Wi-Fi not good like everywhere 😄 They are not finished yet with renovations (rooms, decorations etc.) 180 ND pppn - really fair!

Came here with a broken torsion bar as this place was recommended to us from a local. The owner felt really knowledgeable and has a big garage. I think he also knows a lot of people and addresses if you have a problem. Seemed trustworthy. I don’t know if it was the fault from his secretary, but the communication afterwards was awful. He wanted to find the spare part for us and we talked about welding our broken torsion bar as last option (!). Gave him our number, he wanted to call us. Well, we tried to talk him the next few days as we haven’t heard from him. Then we were in contact with the lady from the office, who always said to us “we will keep you updated” but didn’t tell us at all what was going on. Until one morning she send us a message “they are welding your part right now, you can come pick it up later” - wtf? They didn’t tell us anything and then we had to pay 2300 ND for that. That’s just not okay. But the worst part was, that as we put it back in, it broke after few minutes again. We didn’t even drove. Just BULLSHIT!

Local kite boarding school also with lots of equipment to rent. Very good kite spot at a nice beach. However the best is the people!!!

Also prices for kite schooling were more than fair compared to other places around in Diani area. Possible to obtain IKO licenses.

You‘ll find this spot if you turn in at the Amigos restaurant sign at the main road (sign in the pictures). Parking space for vans and 4x4s.

Very relaxed and easy to reach.
we picked up a big bag of garbage and brought it to Fischer canyon reception, so it will be more likely to get taken care of than the garbage that's laying around.

please do the same that's our responsibility as overlanders to leave it cleaner than before

Great convenient spot. Pretty clean except the sand that gets tracked in. Bring your flip flops.

Also not a single hook in sight.

Good hot shower that takes a little longer to heat up so be patient. It’s a long run from the tap to the shower head.

Three minutes for each quarter you deposit- remember to push the button as you deposit! There’s also an app for paying online but I didn’t try it.

Outside kitchen cleanup tap was off but may be working in season.

All in all - would recommend!

Ok hotel to stay in for the night while waiting to go to Accra or Kumasi. Cheap rooms: 80 cedis for single, 90 for double with toilets and shower outside. Most expensive is 200 cedis, if you want AC. Not super duper clean, but ok. No WiFi though, and when I was there, the restaurant didn't have any food. You'll also need an adapter, in my room the plugs were old English ones only.

Water spring with good pressure. Locals come to fill drinking water here. Bets with containers. Should be possible to connect water thief, but you would need long hose to connect to camper. At least 10m

Nous avons passé 1 nuit, le long de la rivière, plat, grand espace herbeux, au bord d’un chemin caillouteux, facile d’accès, pas de services, plusieurs restaurants à 300 m.
Très bruyant le samedi soir: des jeunes avec leur voiture musique à fond….
Pas de problèmes d’insécurité selon les riverains.

We spent 1 night, along the river, flat, large grassy area, at the edge of a stony path, easy to access, no services, several restaurants 300 m away.
Very noisy on Saturday evening: young people with their cars playing loudly….
No insecurity problems according to local residents.

Nice hotel with a very nice campsite. Clean facilities, good food. We paid 290 for 1 night (1 4x4, 2P) and an extensive dinner.

Near the highway there is a dry lake and all over and around the lake there are several spots to park and camp. Hidden and open from the highway. In the morning shepherd are passing by and don’t bother at all. Very nice and quiet place to stay at night and day.

100% disabled veterans get 50% off of "base rate" not actually rate of campsite chosen. Make sure you verify costs first before coming here so you know. Example; my site was regularly 35, and it cost me 27 after discount.

Perfecto spot to spend the night. very quiet at this time of year. We were alone as well and got to spend a wonderful evening strolling around and taking pics from the jetty in the rest area right on the creek! Great spot so please respect cleanliness. Pot toilets were still closed from the winter season however.

good shower. cold but with these temperatures that's perfect.
i guess it is free if you buy something at the restaurant. nobody asked for money. the restaurant is ok, what you expect at a truck stop. very large portions. recommend.

Entrance gate to Iona National Park. 3000 pp and 500 per car per day. The track is tough. My advice: If you leave it by 5m from the GPS route on Tracks4Africa even though that track looks better turn around and get back on the GPS route, it will get worse, you get stuck and you won’t get back to the GPS route. We got stuck twice and decided to get back to the entrance. Bring enough time, water and fuel. For us the landscape was not worth the effort
