They also have a shaded 'garage' area for vehicles up to approx 2m high with a viewing platform/veranda above. Elec points are available but are shared between 4 sites and are not conveniently placed. Shared ablutions are functional if a little fly-blown and water is hot. Staff are extremely friendly and the store sells ice cream and milkshakes. Self catering chalets/bungalows also available. Also B&B & Dinner rate of N$450 (not tried).

N$ 420 for 2 adults and 2 kids, very cheap laundry. Each pitch has its own shelter, table and car port, which aren’t big enough for a roof tent. Ablutions we’re clean, mens we’re a bit smelly. Fuel available, and a small shop. Good place for a stop over

Report Check-In

Situated in the middle of the desert. It was very windy when we arrived. Like the days before the wind was gone after sundown. We were the only guests so we parked our rooftoptents beside one of the lodges.
We ate an Oryx burger at the restaurant which was very good.

N$363 for two adults and two children.

Boonfamilyjourney | What a great place. After driving in the dust and heat this is just heaven to have a good coffee or ice cream. Internet worked very good at the restaurant. Didn’t stay overnight as we’re heading for Sossusvlei but all looked very well maintained.

Report Check-In

Nice and clean place. But the owner was not around when we were there. Therefore, no Wi-Fi working, no swimming pool, no water at night, which was fixed after we complained. No water in the morning, which was barely fixed after a few requests. There is a Oryx family that is kept for children take pictures next to it, but in the morning one escaped the fenced area and attacked my ground tent, punching it for several times. We felt the saying “enter at your own risk” applies there, since no real apologies were made.

Report Check-In

Very friendly staff and owner. There is wifi at the restaurant (500 MB free, more is 50$ for 500MB). There is a donkey shower. They will make a fire If you like to take a shower.

Highly recommend this place!! we didn't stay as we are on bikes and the wind slowed us to much. However, we did stop here for a few hours and everyone was so kind. The camp's look really well set up, the food is delicious (home made bread to buy!) and the shop well stocked. We had a look in one of the rooms and it was beautiful. A super nice to rest for a while at the very least.

Nice well maintained campsite and chalets. Nicely laid out garden all around as well

Campsite for truckcamper also, the places are shaded with sitting place and table, electricity, dishwashing area.
The showers are hot everytime and clean, the toilet hasn't a key, but in Africa it is normal, you have to take that toilet, which door is open ! A small shop and restaurant where the offert little dishes.

We were sleeping there because of the storm which caught us on the way to Sesriem. Campsite has designed places for car, table with benches, roof over it, light, well equipped shop, gas station, people helpful but:
- toilets with no lock inside so someone can easily interrupt you
- cold water in the shower no matter what time you decide to take it (my husband took a shower at night around 22, I took it in the morning 8-9am)
- in theory you are not suppose to connect your fridge with electricity- we did it and nothing happened
If you are ok with this inconvenience we can recommend that camping :)

Report Check-In

So was at the reception trying to get some MTC signal going early in the morning as I wildcamped near by at night when a sand storm hit the place and the started rain.
Someone paid me a room out of pity.
Rooms are very expensive:506 for one person and 418 per person for two people or more.
For the price you paid it should be spotless but there basin was covered in sand (sandstorm right?) there was no toilet paper and had to fetch it. Lights didn’t work. Only only plug point. The room and the toilet and shower are an open space so if you’re a couple you better like the stink of your partner’s dump.
Shower looked fun but no joy it was cold. A lady come at 5pm to light a fire to heat the water she said it was a very cold day so it would take an hour to get hot. Waited and waited but the water was barely lukewarm surely not enough to shower on a freezing day.
Anyway went to the reception to ask for advise but they had closed shop and disappeared already. I guess no joy after 6pm. There were many unhappy people that paid a hefty price for the room tonight. Even they were not my money I still feel ripped off. If can avoid.
As per the camp spot are not designed for tent campers so you better be in a lucky day with no wind or just wildcamp at the place close by I’ve reviewed you’d save 110 or 506.

There is no MTC other than at reception. It’s also only edge and very slow. Whatapp barely working.

The place is great and the owner was happy and helpful. We felt safe and good there. The woman told us that it was a night for shooting stars, and it was true, we had a beautiful sky that was really clear. 110pppn, showers are ok, but it hot in the morning cause it’s a donkey shower, and the fire was not yet done. Definitely a good place to stop and overnight, even if the place is still under construction.

Shop at least is cash only. Better choice than both Solitaire and Sesriem. Canned beans 30 Namibian Dollars

Like described by others. Very windy but the low stone walls help a lot. The place has little character but has all the facilities you need. Ablutions need some maintenance but are clean. They serve some simple but great tasting dishes at dinner. Still 110 N$.
Next to working farm so quite industrious in the early morning.

Report Check-In

Very well equipped sites, each has a little stone wall which helps to block the wind, plus everything else you could expect, and a viewing platform (though you mostly just see the surrounding farm). Ablutions are spotless. Shop has plenty of treats and supplies. N$110 pp.

Report Check-In

Well maintained campsite, very clean ablution and nice staff. Now 110 ppn, children half price.

Report Check-In

Pretty much exactly as below but prices are 100N$ per person per night and electricity at each campsite. Very windy! Shop still there selling pies, drinks and food which ranges from 40-100N$ including milkshakes and cake for about 35N$. MUCH better value than the camp sites at Duwisib!
