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.

Ask for a pitch by the river and watch that Hoanib flow. Well, it doesn’t always because it’s one of those ephemeral rivers but the animals know there’s water lurking beneath. This will definitely be a rustic camping experience but you can use the facilities at the lodge. Just bear in mind, the lodge is approx half a kilometre away.

There are 10 camping pitches with 220V mains electricity. Don’t get too excited, it can be temperamental.

Same goes for the communal ablutions, there are hot water showers with a good water pressure but sometimes these give up the ghost and stop working. In other words, don’t 100% rely on it. Give yourself a once over under the Ongongo waterfall - a 10km drive away - but lush and worth it.

There’s lots of space between pitches so you’ll have privacy. The pitches away from the river are less shaded.

There’s also full access to the lodge facilities: SUBJECT TO AVAILABILITY. And that’s the caveat. If you want dinner at the lodge, pre book it, but bear in mind the rocky road back to the campsite is not lit so bring your torch. Same goes for the tours - lodge guests get priority.

But you can always swim and make some friends in the little tub of a pool. Don’t panic if you’ve left your towel in your tent - you can get one at the bar. And whilst you’re there get some chips and a beer. Rude not to really.

Facilities

Each campsite has: a light; tap; washing up area; shaded area; maintained braai area; rubbish bin

There is also a restaurant and bar. You can order braai packs at the lodge and then prepare your own meal over an open fire at camp.

Activities

There are hiking trails along the river from the campsite.

Lodge activities include looking for desert elephants, tracking rhino, trips to the indigenous Himba tribes’ villages, rock art trips and bird watching excursions.

Or just enjoy being in the middle of nowhere in the Namibian desert.
