Beautiful campsite by the river, a bit noisy from the pub across the river, but with ear plugs we had a good night sleep. Some ants in the ablutions, but still clean, hot showers.
Every spot has their own working bench and electricity.

The showers are running with water from the river (I think). It smells like you‘re showering with 1000 fishes. Really, really ugly.

No water at the campsite so no shower, no toilet flushing. The pool was full of local children.
We’re a little depressed. Stayed only one night. Electricity at our campsite also broken.

Great place, just don’t stay Friday or Saturday nights or Zambian holidays or at months end (Pay day) due to the loud music from across the river.
Big crocodiles in the river, don’t go near it, Wildlife were (gung-ho) shooting one when I stayed as it had just attacked a village lady downstream.
Nice staff, I use this as a point of ‘civilisation’ in between bush camping. Great showers and toilets. Armed guards at night as Zambians float across the river at night to steal things. Not as bad as it sounds lol

Unexpectedly huge, completely grassy campground with a lot of mango trees. Ablutions good, pool clean, 114pppn. However, the music which crosses the Zambesi from time to time from the Zambian side can get awfully loud. Sometimes it is just a distant sound, but once in a while it feels like trying to sleep in a club. According to staff, its unpredictable home loud the night will be.

Nice and quiet campsite close to the Sambesi river, hippos are nightimes at the campground as well if you're lucky. Probably it happened because of Covid-19. We were the only guest's for a week.

As was described nice camp on the river still 140 N$. If you need supermarket Shoprite is the best.

Very impressive campground in the bank of the Zambezi river within the hotel grounds. Friendly and efficient staff. Good pitches. Sparkling clean toilet block. Nice swimming pool. Great bar and reasonable a la carte menu, but actual food not great and a long wait.
We paid 140pppn. We stayed seven nights.
Note: distant music does drift in from across the river, but did not bother us.

The facilities are kind of old and nobody seems to be watching the place. But the shower is hot, pool is nice and there’s a nice view of the river. Braai area all over the place. Good price, specially because children under 12 don’t pay - 140 ND.

for Namibia's backyard the best camp i've seen. the Camp is now registered under the Marriott Hotels . the Pool is very nice and usable Boy campers, Wifi as it's best.we paid 170 N$ ppn.

This has always been a reliable if not perfect stopover for us over the years. Tonight we noticed that none of the spotlights that used to floodlight the river were working properly, then security came round to ask us to "take everything inside as people are coming across from Zambia in canoes to steal". I think there may be a correlation here somewhere. This is really annoying as we don't want to lose our power cable and therefore have had to disconnect. Yet again it seems that lack of maintenance is at the root of the issue.

nice campsite, all ok.
reception of Zambia Airtel which is way cheaper than Namibian MTC.

The setting is nice on the banks of the Zambezi. But it was all very noisy and a bit run down though when we were there. The ablutions are old and not very clean. The pool was dirty and therefore not usable and a part of the campsite was being used as a dump site with all kinds of old furniture, machines, air cons. etc. It’s ok for a night though and still N$
140 pp.

Nice campsite . The pool is great. Ablutions clean.

Report Check-In

Only camped for 1 night.

The security night guard told all campers to put back ALL the camping stuff during the night, even chairs and table and laundry etc. due to night visitors that come by boat. My camp
neighbors did spot the boat at 2 AM, cruising along the shore and spotting with an orange light.

Obviously they do have a security problem :-(

Still 140 NAM $ pppn.

Fast internet, LTE with MTC.

Nice Mango Trees <3

Indeed spacious camping with enough hot showers and toilets, there's good WIFI at the reception.
It was completely empty when we stayed there.

If needed(we went to Victoria Falls by public transport for Nam$200,- pp to save the hassle of going across the border with a car without a carnet) you can park your car here secured for Nam$50,- per day.
