Very nice campsite with spacious places in a natural environment. But do not mistake your given place number because unfriendly manager will come to force you to move. Extremely rude and un politécnico White man. 170 ND pp. In the morning helicopter and airplane will wake you up!

We went without reservation. The camp with private abolitions was full, but they have a “community camp” aka shared abolutions which was great. Payed 320 or 360, don’t quite remember :D
Only problem was some kind of cricket plague at that time - they were everywhere!

Campsite itself is lovely and very nicely designed with all the facilities I needed. Nice pool, just what I needed to cool off! WiFi might not be the fastest but it’s free, and anyway I didn’t come here to use the internet. Right next to the park gates - as close as you can get without paying the higher rates to camp inside. Only negative is the noise and light pollution at night, but that relates to the general area rather than this camp specifically and is the usual cost of visiting a top tourist hotspot!
Still $200 NAD pppn.

200 n pppn for private Campsite, own toilet, shower and shaded area. 165 n pppn for group camping. Pool in the middle of the camps
Petrol station and shop too, WiFi only works there though, too far away for the campsites. Didn't get much/any mtc signal at site 4. Nice friendly staff.

Great campsite. I paid 200$ for 1 person, 1 car in one of the private spots. Can highly recommend this place. Wifi was free. No Reservation needed.

The campsite inside the Soussusvlei are more expensive so we decided to stay the night just outside the gate.
There are 12 spots in a bit circle around a swimming pool. Each spot has it's own (clean) ablution, shaded area and braai. As far as we could see the spots inside the Soussusvlei park are almost the same.

N$400 for two adults and two children

correct camp, not the best we encountered. wifi is poor, only ok near the fuel station.
no tables and chairs in each campsite. But ok for water, hot water, toilets. no trees but roof with wood.

Very nice campsite just outside of the national park. 12 campsites each with own shady spot, very lovely shower and bathroom - lodge-like feeling - we paied Covid special price 160N$/pp - price tag indicated 230. nice sunset. next to the street but not noisy after dark. Clean and refreshing pool. Booking at the fuel station, very friendly staff - knew more about football european championship results than we did ;). wifi voucher available at fuel station. we stayed one night in the park and after visiting Sossusvlei our here - this is the better equiped campground, even if both offer all you need.

Lovely campsite with your own ablutions, kitchen and shower. There is a clear pool to cool off after a hot morning exploring Sossusvlei. If your goal is to see the dunes and dead vlei in early light, rather stay inside the park at the NWR campsite as you get an hour headstart to drive to Sossusvlei. However, this is the better campsite.

Report Check-In

Nice campsite with cover, private ablutions, power and swimming pool.
Issues would be noise from the road and village. Campsites 5 and 6 also get a whiff of the septic tank regularly. We paid R250pppn. Pricey for what it is but proximity to Sousvlei (without paying the high rates to stay inside the park) make it okay.

Report Check-In

Really recommend staying here, as previous reviews have said; own ablutions and good clean pool. We (site 2) also had a sewerage smell 6-7am but the rest of the time was fine. Only major downside for us was the armoured ground cricket infestation, perhaps this is seasonal.
Paid 320 for 2 people.

Everything as described before. Still special rates of 160N$ per person. Nice campground here, Campsites arranged in a big circle. Wifi available at shop: as a camper you will get a voucher for free.

Report Check-In

Great campsite. Experienced guide told us that you might as well go into Sossusvlei later in the afternoon, to have good light. Good advice, because then you don’t need to experience the NWR ‘hospitality’. Reduced rate now 160 NAD pp. Friendly staff.

Report Check-In

In our opinion this is the nicest campsite in Sesriem. The only advantage of others is being able to leave early for Deadvlei. Ablutions excellent, swimming pool as cold as eveywhere else in Namibia:) Site 4 and 5 sometimes get a whiff of sewage and you do get noise from the village on a weekend. We paid 160 NAD pppn, discounted rate (post lockdown). We were lucky to have a wonderful full moon rise 3 nights in a row and view from no 5 was spectacular. Be aware that gate is locked between 7pm and 7am so if you need to leave early then arrange it the night before. We would stay here again definitely. We checked NWR but ablutions were awful there and Oshana is very nice but spots are close to each other and it gets noisy with people.

On another note, Namib Sky Safaris, 20km south on C27 are running a promotion on sunrise balloon flights at 3475 NAD pp 40 mins flight and a luxurious champagne bfast on the desert. We did it and would highly recommend as usually it is twice as expensive.

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.

very nice campsite with a shop. nice pool as well. 165nd for the campsite on the tree shadow and 230 for the campsite on a shelter with private abolutions.
just in front of the gate to sossusvlei

New campsite. We were on the shared bathroom part. Very clean, with fite pits, braais, electricity, light at each site. Can be very windy at night. Not much shade during the day but a nice little swimming pool. Nice shop that closes at 7 pm at the petrol station with very nice sandwiches!

Price is currently (high season?) 230 nad for private camp and 165 nad for group camp. Private shower didnt really get hot.

165 NAD ppn for shared ablutions. checked twice if it 150 or 165 ppn.

Would almost recommend the group campsite over the private ones, its further from the road, has natural tree shade and very nice ablutions. Electricity and braai at each site and a small communal swimming pool and scullery for dishes etc.

Report Check-In

very nice campsite. there are two options: campsite with private ablutions: 210nad. shared ablutions: 150nad.
Better and much cheaper campsite than the one across the road from NWR.

If it’s full you can camp near the Internet cafe for 80 N$ or for free if you talk more.
With Internet WiFi too.

Report Check-In

All campsites with private ablutions were booked. We booked ours on our way to Sossusvlei (this campsite is right outside the main entrance). It was about noon when we arrived and book and we got #15 campsite which is the most remote - but more privacy - but farther to the ablution block - which is ok too. Nice big space with a tree, tap but no sink, braai, electricity. Wifi? I see 2 private networks but with different names than Oasis. Electricity also at each campsite.
Ablution block well maintained with hot water in shower and nice water pressure.

Nice campsite, we stayed at the site with shred ablutions which were nice with good showers. Nice pool and each site has some shade. Great location to enter the park the following morning.

12 spots with private ablutions (210N$pp) and 7 spots with shared ablutions (150N$pp). We got the last spot at the shared ablutions campsite, so fully booked around 16h. The shared ablutions are fine, with good hot shower. There also is a tiny clean pool. All spots have electricity, water and a braai, some have more shade than others.

Report Check-In

The private camps were all booked so we stayed at the communal one. Not bad at all with decent ablutions

Report Check-In

The 12 spots were booked out. There is a new area on the far left with communal toilets and showers.
It cost 145 per person.
Alternatively there is an area next to the Internet cafe office that was around 66 per person. You get WiFi all night and we were given a lead with two plugs chairs and table.
It’s behind the trash room si it might be a bit smelly at times. Concrete floor.

We stayed at the second campsite, which has shared ablutions. Sites ar close together and each has a braai stand, water tap and electricity which didn't work at our site. 145 ND pppn

Report Check-In

Very close to the park entrance. 200 N$ per person. We got the Last Spot at 14:00 , looks like it's well booked.
Our leashed dog was accepted, after we declared, that it's always on leash and does not disturb other guests.

quite expensive, no shade, except from the huts where you have your own ablutioms. Still the better choice compared to NWR camp

They have also a new place with communal ablutions.
We paid 135 pppn.
