OK place for an overnight stay, but nothing special. The view on the river is nice (but not spectacular), ablutions are ok, the pool is unusable (dirty), WiFi is unusable (even next to the reception it is extremely slow), and the lady at the reception was unwelcoming and a bit rude. Loud music from neighboring bars at night (until 6 am), and many dogs barking, so bring earplugs. Bit too expensive for what you get (220 NAD pppn)...

Nice campground at the Zambesi riverbank. The owner is very friendly. The campsites are surrounded by a wonderful garden with a lot of lemon trees. We were allowed to take as many lemons as we needed.
It is very close to the Sambian border, best place for those as us, who have to renew their carnet.

Ordentlich, aber großes Campsite, Toiletten nur mit Western-Saloon-Türen, also nicht abschließbar. Wir hatten Regen und waren zum Glück die einzigen Gäste, ansonsten wäre es eng und nicht schön! Als stopover okay. Preis nicht verhandelbar: 189 $ pro Person.

Outstanding and one of the best campsites at a affordable rate that we stayed at. N$150 pppn
The campsites are on the edge of the riverbank. Lovely!

Lovely open and spacious campground on the banks of the Zambezi. For the bird enthusiast you can literary only sit at your campsite and watch unique species such as schallow’s turaco, African golden oriole, trumpeter hornbill, etc.

Report Check-In

Great spot. The singing you hear next door (not the all night music) comes from the kids at the orphanage.
I walked over to see what it was and found 53 kids and a number of staff all working togther. They ended up inviting us to church (I go about every 5 years) and we decided to make a donation to their organization. (we didnt ask to be invited to church and they didnt ask for a donation). I had made a seperate post, but iOver... deleted it because it's not a tourist attraction 😹

What a wonderful campsite!!! Gorgeous spots on the Zambezi, super peaceful, nice ablutions. We loved the host, Jakku (?) what a nice man, very welcoming. He has 2 sweet dogs, one of which a puppy who was adorable, who often came for hugs. Multiple spots on the river, and many off the river, but there were only 1-2 other couples while we are there. Too bad that there was music coming from the neighbors, for most of the day and evening into the night (we used earplugs at night).

Nice pool!!

Big campsite at the shores of the Zambezi. Big, clean ablutions with good hot showers. Only about 4 campsites are actually at the rivershore, but they are nice. N$150/pppn, so very reasonable. Faint noise from a nearby village in the evening, but not bad. Friendly owner. Very nice stopover for one (or two) night. Conveniently also near town, so easy to go to the supermarkets for stocking food, etc.

Report Check-In

150NAD pppn. The restaurant and bar are not currently open, but it is the low season post COVID (only 3 vehicles on the campsite).

Report Check-In

Arrived late and left early. Staff and manager were welcoming and we had everything we needed for a quick stopover. Lots of recent rains and it seems like all the local mosquitoes took shelter in the ablution block, so beware! Everything else has been said. Nice site if you need to be near Katimo Mulilo, and still a reasonable price of NAD150 pppn.

Report Check-In

Well maintained, cleaned and groomed. They welcome “walk-ins” since there are plenty paved campsites to choose from with numerous ones directly on the riverbank with great sunset views. All amenities are as per previous posts. Huge ablution block with plenty showers.

We had the privilege of witnessing African Wood Owl chicks taking (probably) first flight! Birdlife is always magical along this strip of the Zambezi.

Our total bill for the night was N$475 for 2 adults and 2x kids (10 and 13yrs). Very affordable in my opinion.

Immaculately clean, shady campsites right on the rivers edge. Swimming pool. N$150pppn, kids 5 & under free, half price 6-12 years. Conveniently close to Katima especially if waiting for Covid tests.

Nice place in strong contrast to other campsites in Chobe region of Botswana. No animals here. It's more an place to relax after a long 4x4 trip.

Beautiful riverside campsite on grass with restaurant, bar, and large swimming pool. Recommended *****

Report Check-In

See the below descriptions. The camping spots along the river are nice.

They also have some Chalets and a Restaurant.

Ablutions are clean but somehow old school, a facelift would be nice after the price for camping did raise.

It was not so busy at this place, what made the stay calm and comfortable.

I also paid NAM 200 $ for camping.

Used the laundry service which was good but pricy, 80 $ per (small) bag.

3 G Signal with MTC.

Wifi at the Bar Area. Swimmingpool.

Price is 200nad ppn, very expensive. But it‘s still a good place to be: we were the only campers, good showers, all the facilities are very clean (just the pool has a lot of leaves in it).

Stunning campsite, friendly hostess N$150 per person. Zambezi views clean ablution. Dog friendly.

Report Check-In

Not very cheap (150n$ pn) but worth it. Nice setting on the river, excellent ablutions (clean and well maintained), friendly staff, and most if not all pitches have all facilities except for shelters. Electricity, light, braai (firewood 40n$ per bag), standpipe, table and bench, etc. Paved pitches for cars, grass for tents. Pitches are playfully arranged, which is a bit confusing but also adds to the character of the place. Showers are hot and the best I've had in a long time. Quiet at night, yet still within a few km from town. Wifi available only in reception/bar/swimming pool area. Apparently no restaurant (they added 'self catering ' to their name) but they do have a bar.

Report Check-In

Still 125 per person per night. Pitches are nice, some by the river. Quite busy! They sell meat packs, ice and fire wood.
