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.

Perfect for your self-drive holiday or camping tour of Namibia, Madisa is an excellent choice for those looking for a basic tented camp or as a camping option with all the necessary facilities and delightful swimming pool built around an enormous rock.

Camping in Namibia is an obsession and in this country less is more when it comes to an enjoyable camping experience where, once the basics are covered, you're pretty much left to your own devices. Those basics are well covered at Madisa and they include a private elevated ablution facility for every campsite, with a fire-heated boiler, flushing toilets and a view of the riverbed.

The campsites at Madisa are spotless and well-spaced apart and demarcated with low walls beneath sprawling acacia trees. A barbecue area and table comprise your cooking and kitchen facilities and the stunning view, desert elephants ambling past if you're lucky, the serenity and the great open Namibian sky comprise your entertainment.

The safari tents as an alternative to the campsites, don’t offer a much different experience other than you don’t have to set up camp, it’s all ready for you to simply make yourself at home and enjoy the surrounds. It’s less of a lodge and more “glamping” if you must, but offers all that you need, nestled into the rock formations with an open air bathroom a chance to shower under the stars.

A short walk to the delightful, hand-made swimming pool that looks like a moat around a large rock. You can take a meander up the river bed to some spectacular rock formations or drive further afield in search of the desert elephants.

Facilities

5 twin or double self-catering safari tents and 2 family safari tents with the option to include meals on request; braai area (no equipment provided); hot water; solar/paraffin lighting; swimming pool; bar and dining at main area.

No air-con; no fans; no WiFi.

9 individual campsites with private ablutions and cooking facilities (firewood on request); lights on generator until 10pm. Note: the campsite is very small and extremely remote so facilities are almost nil and the duty manager is often far from the entrance. We advise you to bring enough firewood and supplies, including drinking water, rather than relying on availability at the campsite.

Activities

Walks among the beautiful balancing rocks with newly discovered Bushman rock paintings; nature drives in search of the desert-adapted elephants; donkey cart sundowner; guided village walk; sundowner walk; scenic sundowner drive; birdwatching; stargazing; lazing in and by the pool all day

Madisa also offers wild camping overnight stays at Doros Crater between May and October, for a minimum of 2 pax. To be booked in advance.
