Every single comment before me has been spot on. Checked with quite a lot of Overlanders- although we are told it is the low season!

-Fantastic WiFi by the restaurant
-Very helpful staff
-Neat ablutions
-Really quiet all through, more so at night (early mornings are a bit noisy from cars across the road).
-The camping area is private and separate from the general/restaurant area. Really safe as well.

I would highly recommend it. A thank you to every single person who reviewed this place before and made it possible for us to choose it as our preferred place of aboard.

Perfect place to spend a couple of days in Windhoek. Arrived here by bicycle.
Was very happy about the little tent roof on every site. I kept dry even during rainy days. Staff is very helpful and friendly. They stored the bicycle for me in a save place while I was on a trip to Swakopmund.
I highly recommend this place.
Good vibes...

Highly recommend staying here! We arrived by bicycle and Urban Camp was very accommodating and helpful during our entire time in Windhoek. The staff quickly became our friends. They go above and beyond to make sure you have a good stay. Shaded areas with a picnic table or bench for you to put a tent under. The bathrooms and showers are cleaned regularly. There’s even an outdoor shower. The restaurant and bar serves outstanding meals, coffee, beer. The location is perfect as it’s a short walk to a supermarket, plaza with everything you need and of course Joe’s Beerhouse. This was our home away from home in Windhoek.

180 Namibian/person for “long travelers” discount.

all as described, I just want to add that sites for camping are very well accomodated but close one to other.

Planned to spent 1 night here, but stayed 3. Very nice vibe at the camp. Electricity and water at each site. There are several abblution blocks and the showers are warm. Restaurant/bar is good and wifi is very fast. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff. Urban camp is within walking distance (300m) of Pathcare Covid test center in Windhoek. Great place to sort things out in Windhoek and relax for a few days.

We arrived in this camp for our first night in Namibia and didn’t expect something like that. The camp is really cute and well organised, great site with a hamac, shadow, power and barbecue. Wifi at the restaurant/reception

Excellent restaurant with a little swimming pool !

Nice campsite in the city with clean ablutions.
First night was great but second day there was a pretty bad DJ playing at the bar area for a big group(probably a teambuilding day), so not really nice to hang around the pool and sit in the restaurant. We were a bit disappointed about the food and the staff wasn't that friendly. In the middle of the night a couple of people arrived at the campsite, they were drunk and pretty loud..
But overal good value for money and there is an option to get your laundry done.

As said before, best place for a city break camping. Delicious food in the restaurant (try the kapana or oryx schnitzel). Ablutions fantastic. Staff started donkey for us. Spot 10 is very cosy and private. Staff very friendly.

Very nice place in the city. Beautifully landscaped and mostly quiet. Great bathrooms and a fun bar. The WiFi worked fine for us at the bar. Great location and nice people working there. One night we camped and one night we got one of their tents for $580 and it was so worth it for clean sheets and a clean towel after a month of our car tent. Loved this place!

One of the best campsite we have been to. Loads of personality and the staff are the same. There is internet at restaurant area. The quirky campsite attracts load of fellow travelers.

Report Check-In

When I was 15yrs old I also tried really hard to be cool - Urban Camp has not stopped trying. Plastered with signs such as “What happens at camp stays at camp” is a testament to what you might expect. The bar staff obviously run the show and pay little mind to the travellers that the site attracts. For a city camp, this could have been a lovely stopover, with close but spacious camps. However, we were booked into a site which was double booked, so had to share the one braai, one power point and lounging facilities. Wouldn’t stay here again, but was a sufficient stopover

Great place! Has everything you need and in a good central location. 180N$ pppn.

Nice camping in the city but not in the centre so it’s not very loud due to the traffic. Campsites has braai area, bench and hammock and the roof above it all. Ablutions indoor and outdoor with hot water are very convenient and clean. There is a swimming pool and restaurant as well. Price: 170 N$ pppn.

Feels like a backpacker place, is almost always fully booked and I didn’t particularly like the atmosphere nor the staff’s attitude. No personal service, you’re client nr. 17579. It’s a clean and nice place though, good if you want to meet and hang out with other people (tourists). Very noisy at night as well.

Nice campsite in the middle of the city centre.
The site had their own luxery braai facilities, their own tent where you have a picknick table hammock en a cosy light. Amazing vibe! The abulution blocks are clean, they have a nice bar, swimmingpool. The staff are very friendly, the wifi is good. On walking distance you will find Joes beerhouse, a must gowhen go out for dinner.

We stay here 5 days.

We travel whole the world for more then 2 years and visit alot of campsites but this is on of our favourites.
So Urban Camp, you totally worth it, for you guys the 5*!

Don't allow filling of water tanks.
A bit noisy early morning (road), but otherwise good for a city campsite.

Really nice spot in the city! Clean and tidy, good friendly staff and they kept a parcel for me that was sent here. Laundry seems expensive at N$105 per load but the laundry down the road is as expensive so would have been easier to have it done here. Sites are close to eachother but thats the city I guess, otherwise I was lucky they had space as its a popular place for overlanders and holiday makers in 4x4 rentals.

Best campground in Windhoek and good place to meet other travelers. Good absolutions, little pool and super friendly staff! Thet are very helpful with everything. Restaurant is also nice and serves good food in huge portions. You should at least once try the breakfast buffet they offer! Also laundry service available, but a bit pricey with 105 N$. They have discounts for long time travelers, which are on the road for more than 3 months (145 N$ pp), normal price is 180 N$.
Highly recommended...also Joes Beerbar is next door and only a 5 minute walk away.
After beeing on the road for 5 month we stopped here for 5 days in total.

awesome spot. remember you are in the city, camping... there will be city noises so deal with it. food is great - huge portions and the staff is super friendl and helpful. we only saw one dog during our stay that did not seem too bothered about us at all. N$145pppn long term travellers. wifi is okay-ish. campsites are surrounded by reeds for extra privacy and most have hammocks. neat, tidy and secure. highly recommended.

seems to be secure now. They have a lot of watchman and a guy walking around the whole night with a gun.
It was all the time fully booked but the very nice manager Chrissy always find a solution.

Really nice campground but not entirely set up for rooftop tents. Great ablutions. Fast Wi-Fi in or just outside the restaurant (not at sites). Fully secured compound now, with razor wire and foot patrols. Restaurant is cheap and good food ($20 shots are nice!) Great supermarket is 5 min walk (in the same block is a liquor store, well-stocked pharmacy, great butcher which sells game meat and firewood for $25 a bag, 3 ATMs). Easy to catch a taxi for only max $20pp anywhere in the City. 130pppn for long-term travellers. Wood $50 per bag (expensive - get from the butcher!) Ask for campsite 10 or 11 for privacy and quiet. Note the owner has 4 dogs (German shepards of various ages) that hang out in the bar/reception when the male owner is there or also roam free around the campground. They are unpredictable and could really scare anyone afraid of dogs. Customer dogs are welcome but are expected to be leashed at all times.
Update: ask for payment receipts and keep them, in case you return. Us and another overlander were accused of not paying on our first visit. We had no proof but they didn't push the issue.

Busy and atmospheric campsite. When I visited only the pitch for overland trucks was available. Not a great spot but not bad either. Power outlet and a watertap. On arrival I was told that the discount for long term travellers (over 3 months) only applies if you stay at least 1 week but I asked again the next day and suddenly this criterium was no longer applicable. Also, when they are full they sometimes let you camp on random open spaces within the compound. Not great if you're on a regular pitch and a big truck parks right in front of you... Pitches are in any case very small and for some reason they hardly facilitate campers that sleep in or on there vehicle. It's all designed for tents. Ablutions are very clean but 1 shower was always cold, a second 1 always closed and a third was warm but had no lock. Breakfast is excellent. N$65 for a great buffet. Dinner is also quite good. Especially the oryx was really good! Nice place to meet fellow travellers as well. Camping N$ 160 pppn but long term travellers pay 130 or 135 (I paid either of those, depending on who was helping me). There is big wall surrounding the compound, surmounted by an electric fence, so it would appear to be quite safe.

Report Check-In

The Campsite is quite nice, the Ablutions are very nice and clean. We stayed one week here, and after that week we were glad to go further, because some things here are not so fine ! The first thing is , that the stuff always runs around at our place. We had 1 m space between our Unimog and the roofed- seat and they always walked through... that was not so nice, especially when you change your clothes.... they don´t respect the privacy. The other thing was, that there were dogs close to the Campsite barking from 5 o´clock in the morning till 11 o´clock in the evening- it was horrible !!! But the most worst thing is, that the "Guards" who run around with a gun in the night steals our stuff !!!! The owners know that !!! so, don´t let anything laying around at night !!! It happend to us TWO TIMES !! - The good Things are, the Bar is very nice and the dinner was very good. You can walk to the Supermarket and it´s not far from Joe´s Beerhouse, which is a MUST , when you are in Windhouk. We would stay here again , if its necessary, but only then !

All the comments describe well the place but it's seem that they have a security problem. Windhoek is well known for the high rate of robbery. My recommendation if you go there, is not to take the camping sites at the far end the camp. We were in Urban Camp in late November 2016 and two guys cut the fence at that place and a 4x4 was broke in. Nobody was hurt. In the night of 10-11 of January 2017 the same thing happened. The fence was cut at the same place and the window of a rented Overlanding truck was smashed out and two backpacks were stolen meanwhile the people were sleeping on the top of it. Again nobody was hurt. We spent 30 days between November 2016 and January 2017 and we think that the staff is really nice and it's still the best place in Windhoek for camping at a fair price. But they must solve this problem of security.

Nice camp. Paid 145N$ per person camping even though it is advertised as 110N$ for overlanders this was not honoured. Standing tents 440N$ per night. Great Bar and good clean facilities. Also a specialised Land Rover mechanic nearby which is excellent if you need a service and few things checked.

We weren't as impressed as others. Alright if you need a cheap-ish place in Windhoek. Campsites are like a parking lor, cramped. At least the bar was nice. $145pppn.
