Desert Quiver Camp
Please note: Our review of this property has not yet been added. Watch this space. We're working on it.

As a tailor-made tour operator, we often have to get creative when designing your perfect itinerary.

For example, your travel consultant might add this property to your itinerary if:

Location is a significant factor
It offers a unique feature that will enhance your experience
This is a last-minute booking and room availability is limited
Cost is a factor and you'd rather splash out on another part of your trip
This is a newly opened or refurbished property that we have not inspected yet

When designing your custom itinerary we have much to consider not least of which is the value proposition of every product and service included in your quote. In all cases we strive to give you the best experience possible within your budget so please feel free to ask your travel consultant to share their reasons for including this property in your itinerary.

The 24 units, built of poles and canvas and stone, look like A-frames adrift and subsiding into the desert. The natural construction and sympathetic choice of colours help these structures blend into the dramatic scenery and, after a short while, the striking asymmetry becomes rather pleasing.

Inside, the rooms are spacious, cool and spotless. An en suite bathroom with shower, toilet and wash basin lurks behind the dividing wall and while the doorless layout - oddly popular among the newer establishments in Namibia - may not be to everyone’s liking, the spacious shower and piping hot water is a sure thing.

The unit has a large shaded porch with a kitchenette cunningly tucked away behind a canvas roll-down; the picnic bench and barbecue set the scene for a classic campout under the stars beside a flickering fire. A nice feature is you can order in your fresh cooking supplies and have them delivered to your unit.

If you’re not up to the ordeal of ready-steady-cooking your own meal or you just fancy a treat the camp’s sister property, Sossusvlei Lodge - well known for excellent service and quality food - is a few km up the road. As a guest of Desert Quiver Camp, you have full access to their activity centre, wonderful buffet restaurant, bar and pool all overlooking a waterhole.

Back at camp, a huge and ever-sparkling pool and its companion lopsided A-frame bar provide an agreeable venue for a sunset cocktail and a refreshing dip - the ochre view across the plains towards the rocky mountains is pure Namibia.
