Roy's Rest Camp


Roy's Rest Camp
2 stars

Looking at a map, the roads from Grootfontein, east of Etosha, to the Caprivi strip and Bushmanland are daunting straight lines. Roy's Camp is a happy break in the monotony and a handy stopover between north and south, and east and west.

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.

Basic at best, accommodation is in rustic stone bungalows with en suite bathrooms and private barbecue facilities; several camping sites use the shade of the mopane and acacia trees that typify this sub-tropical region.

The swimming pool is the focal point of the quirky living area. Surrounded by Morris chairs with a local twist and presided over by a gnarled bar, the pool is an essential component of the instant relax-and-unwind formula. Leading off from the pool area is a dark and no less quirky restaurant that serves up some meaty home-grown meals.

Lodge Facilities

Room Facilities


Bird and game watching; walking trails; game tracking trips; farm drive; Bushman community interaction

The camp has two short walks with numbered trees and plenty of birds to identify; wildlife is limited to small antelopes and nocturnal omnivores; although eland are not uncommon. Organised visits to a Bushman village, 80km east, should be booked in advance and are well worth the time.

There's also a hide near the waterhole. Watch and wait.
