Tucked into and built around a jumble of elephant-size boulders, each campsite has its own ablution facilities, own kitchen and wonderful private settings. Your water is heated by a donkey - a wood-fired, boiler - and you have flushing toilets, sinks and and a glorious outdoor shower. What more could you want?
The soft sand of the campsites makes for perfect barefoot holidays and the shade from the acacia and mopane trees is a welcome treat in the heat of Damaraland. More welcome still is the small swimming pool, also cleverly built into the rocks with a view of the vast Damaraland valley.
