Rustic camp with ablutions build around a small rocky hill, donkey fired showers, waterhole with many zebras, oryx etc close by, a lion is a frequent visitor to camp at night
Why? By checking in after you’ve visited a place you let others know this place is still functional. You can also add or correct any information.
Still 200 pp. Better than our expectations for sure, after having read the comments. Nice private shower / toilet, but not much privacy (no door or curtain). Braai but no grill to cook on it. No one came to heat the donkey so no hot shower. No toilet paper. No electricity, no mtc signal. Not much protection against sun, nothing against rain. Weird choices of set up but its a very nice campground for a night before Etosha NP, especially when you have a look at those how are inside the park...Report Check-In
Nice campsite in the bush, near the gate.
Very clean, WiFi close the owner's house.
When we arrived they asked when we want hot water, we said 6 oclock, but nobody came to heat up and there was no toilet paper no rubbish bin and no mirrow in the bathroom. In the morning when who came to collect the money we complaned and they heated up the fire and brought a rubbish bin...Report Check-In
Nice campsite. Private ablutions. Rifle shot quite close in the nightReport Check-In
We came little bit after sunset. Our welcome was not very nice after a long day. We were given a site but couldn't fit our car so asked to change.
The sites are built from concrete and look very nice and high class. Each with sink and ablution. Sites doesn't have power or light.
Shower is donkey which was very good. We didn't go to the waterhole.
Didn't have wifi at site.
For us it's too expensive for what you get. Even though sites look very new and nice they don't
have power, they are little bit close to each other and it's awkward to fit the car.
We can highly recommend this camp. Very clean sites with private ablutions on each site and a great view from the hide on the Rock to the lower Waterhole. 200 N$ ppn.Report Check-In
Visited in December 2020. Very nice and quiet campsite with great private ablutions. Perfect place to stay before or after visiting Etosha.Report Check-In
no more construction, price 200 per person, nice and clean
We were alone at the campsite
I can second that the price is 200pp now. Nice Camp, still under construction though. During the day you can hear construction noise. Nice lookout/hide to a man made waterhole. We were also invited for dinner, which was a very nice gestureReport Check-In
Very nice campsite as descriped below. But price is 200ppn now.Report Check-In
Also the camp is still under construction it is a great place with privet sites including toilet and shower and shade. Very nice and special design.
Only 140 pp 10 minutes from Galton Gate.
We stayed there a night before we went into the Ethosha park. The road side camp is one of our favorites we found during our trip!
Really new built(in 2019?), clean and very nice private toilet and showers. Also at their waterhole we saw nearly so many animals then in Ethosha.
This place was not ready for campers, especially for that price.
Campsites will be nice once all is finished, but that will still take a while. Now you get dusty smelly toilets, a cold shower, no electricity, no wash up place with water (only a tap near the toilet).
Bush camp is a better option for now.
The campsite is located just out of the Etosha Galton Gate. Although it states “Road Side Camp”, you will not have a view to the road, as the site is nicely located behind the hills. They are still doing a lot of construction work, but what is already there looks promising. As we were the first to arrive that day we were appointed a nice big place with a concrete slab and a roof construction providing shade. The showers and toilets (open air) were conveniently close by. If you walk up the hill you have also a nice valley view, including a waterhole where animals come by for some refreshment.Report Check-In
Great location. They are busy with huge upgrades which promises to be amazing, but the working does disturb things a bit. I also looks like the current upgrades do not really cater for rooftop tents. I did mention this to the building manager, and apparently they are planning to cater for that type of tent as well.Report Check-In
Not closed at all! Spent an amazing time at their waterhole and unforgettable night with a lion really close by...Really beautiful and peaceful place. Basic but nice ablutions with hot showers. Nice people. Highly recommended!Report Check-In
This place is not closed. Ablutions very basic but neat. Running water and flush toilets. No electricity. 140pppnReport Check-In
This place is permanently closed.Report Check-In
Lovely place. We paid NAD 120 p.p. after negotiating. Friendly staffReport Check-In
Basic Camp Under construction. not much shade. has great view Point over Busy waterhole.Report Check-In
Like the other comments. Adult still 140, our children aged 2,5,6 didn’t pay at all what is often different on other campsites.Report Check-In
Nice and quiet campsite.
See info from others.
Price still N$140 pp
No hot water because no firewood for donkey shower :-(
The pool was in a state that not even your feet want to get wet.
When we arrived in the afternoon, we asked for a discount, because of no hot shower and no swimmingpool. He told us that we will agree on the price when he was comming back later. He did not show up, so when we left he came out of his shelter, not in a good mood, and we had to pay the full amount. Wich was quit expensive considdering what you get. We had a discussion, but we had to pay full price.
Bottom line......Agree on a price immidiately and pay direct!
We don't come back to this place ever!
The shelter to look at the waterhole is special and all kinds of game.
Lovely natural Campground. Perfect Showers and Toilets built directly into the Rocks. Solar driven Electricity and Lights. Small but nice Pool. Waterhole was nice (Giraffes etc.). Nice Views and perfect Sunset from the Rocks. We were a Group of 6 People and negotiated 700 NAD (177 NAD pppn).Report Check-In
Best camping experience in 3 weeks in Namibia! We were the only visitors, making it an even more special and private place. Waterhole with giraffes. Open air hot shower under the stars. Staff kindly helped fixing our tent. Unfenced, so be aware of potential lions at night. 140 NAD pppn.Report Check-In
Ideal location, still building the additional sites and facilities but sufficient in place over 6 sites for hot showers, private toilet. We were the only ones there but spent hours overlooking waterholes. Unfenced bush campReport Check-In
Indeed a nice camp but 125N$ for firewood is a bit ridiculous.Report Check-In
Lovely campsite with great hot outdoor shower. Perfect location for entering the park. The waterhole had elephants, giraffe, zebra, oryx. 130 NDReport Check-In
