Sesriem Oshana Campsite

Sesriem Oshana Campsite

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.

While Oshana Campsite prides itself for providing comfort, ease and luxury for campers, this is still very much a Campsite. While you have your own bathroom, parking, kitchenette and access to the bar and pool, you still need to bring all your own camping equipment and set up camp for yourself. That’s right: tent, sleeping bags and a fold-up chair to enjoy the view of Elim Dune. If you do need something though, there is a small shop where you can pick up a few basics and some souvenirs. Just don't forget the big ticket items like your tent or you'll be sleeping in the car.

You have power outlets, but don’t bargain on electronics since there is no WiFi (this is camping after all). Many choose this spot for its location. Inside the park and for its nothingness, it’s a chance to escape and head into the dunes before the sun rises. Win-win.

Although you are in the middle of nowhere, there is more to it. You can make use of the restaurant and the pool at Sesriem, which all sounds too perfect after a hot day of desert activities. As much as camping is an activity on its own, there's much more to do here. Guided walks and hiking trails through the beautiful landscapes that you wake up to every morning. If going by foot is not your thing you can go quad biking or in a hot air balloon. Now that sounds like an adventure.  

It’s safe to say that if you want to do this right, you need to take a scenic drive to explore the highlights of Sossusvlei, Dead Vlei and Dune 45. Truth be told, there is a reason everyone wants to photograph it, but shh, don't tell everyone the secret is staying inside the park. That's your advantage.

The campsite itself is clean and the luxury of a hot shower after a long day is a blessing. The vast emptiness will give you the most beautiful night sky to admire and the morning sunrises will be so good you will forget that you slept in a tent.

Lodge Facilities

Room Facilities


Being inside the park at Sesriem, you are best positioned to explore the highlights of the Sossusvlei area and better yet, you get to do so before anyone else staying outside the park gates. Explore the breathtaking landscapes, go on a nature drive and if you are feeling fit and energetic, hiking is also an option.

You can get your hands on a permit at the NWR office just 600m from the campsite and then you are free to roam Sossusvlei and the red sand dunes in all their glory. Don't get so lost in the wonder of it all that you forget to snap a few pictures of the iconic landscape, right there in front of you.
