It felt like driving into a film set as we approached this camp. It was quirky and really friendly place. The food was great and the bar was fun and original. There is a bit of a hippy touch to the place, so it may not appeal to people who like something more up market.
Nice, quiet, friendly staff
Lovely location and individual sites away from overlanders so very quiet. Once again good facilities
Nice place with a dirty pool. Good excursion to see the elefants.
Top destination for Damara, friendly host and no electricity at the tent. Really nice stay, I would recommend it!
Elephant track : Exiting Camp : wonderful shower
Charming tent with outdoor facilities The 23 km D road to get there was extremely rough
Very cozy and friendly personel at the camp site. The camp site we liked the most during the whole trip
Too many mosquitos in our room. The shower didn't work
The chef was very friendly and the location was convenient to the Twyfelfontein area, despite the terrible roads to Twyfelfontein.
Fun and quirky desert camp.
very very nice. beautiful atmosphere and great value for money
Perfect. Very nice campsite. Quiet. Nice bathroom in the open air.
We loved it, great idea and a nice experience. A bit far away from Twyvelfontein and Brandberg.
Good location between Brandberg and Twyfelfontain. Nice reception area with a small, cool pool and a bar. Well spaced campsites have private bathrooms and showers, sinks and power. Bit dusty.
Very pretty, quite camp. Awesome nice stars. Each campsite has its own toilet. The campsites are well spaced apart from each other for privacy!
Specical experience in Madisa Camp. shower under the sky.
Fabulous experience. Definitely on our list of 'go back to places' to 'chill'.
The luxury tents are really great and we loved the private campsite with outdoor shower and loo. It was so peaceful and quiet at night - my husband said he had the best night sleep here he had had for a long time! The views from the tents were beautiful and the landscape really dramatic. On the downside, we felt like the camp could be more organised in terms of ensuring that they do not run out of cold beer, keep a bottle of white wine in the fridge, provide the option of tea at breakfast. Just small things that people expect. The food was basic but tasty and the staff friendly and helpful.
Nice campsites and beautiful surroundings next to the river bed, you might even spot some desert elephants at times...
A fantastic place. Sleeping in tents and waking up to the dawn and having the wilderness on our doorstep was really something. We took the precaution of booking breakfast and dinner as there was no way we could have catered for ourselves, as carrying no utensils and nowhere to store our food in the car. Very quirky and artistic place, and the seating arrangements for the outdoor restaurant with lights and candles were fun. Friendly dogs! It will be great when the upstairs bar is finished. If the water in the pool was cleaner would have gone in but not sure if we were meant to. The pool surround was under development. A lady offered to do our laundry for a reasonable price - perfect timing!
What a beautiful camp!!
Madisa camp is in a beautiful location and we were very happy that Norelle had booked dinner for us, as it gave us the opportunity to talk with the staff and watch them cooking. However we felt that the optional visit to a local village was not worth the money (180 NAD/person for a one hour walk across the road to a local farms). We did not see anything of the real Damara villages.
This was a beautiful camp! So much more than we were expecting, and very close to the damara living museum.we could have spent more time at this camp site.
In the middle of nowhere - but that was ok! We found the lack of electricity a slight problem - or some (but not all) of us did!! We knew that it was intended to be self-catering and would have take what was offered as regards pre-ordered meals, but the evening meal was "difficult" and somewhat disappointing. Personally, I loved the location which was miles from anywhere and scenically wonderful. I would recommend a stay there regardless of any reservations mentioned.
The one I liked most! Really nice place!
A very well sorted campsite. My clients very much enjoyed the bar!!. Next year we will want to book the campsutes 8 and 9 near the river
Such a special place. How they had integrated the bathroom into the rocks were amazing. Staff also super friendly
Camping only. Nice sites with private ablutions and showers in the tree tops. Well managed, no restaurant but beer is available :-).
Pleasant to have good distance between campers. Well kept (even though they had a temporary problem with electricity). Nice system of heating water (by fire).
GREAT camping site. The best one we stayed at. Very kind staff, private bathroom and shower. Wonderful.
The campsites are large and private - reasonably close to the reception. Staff was particularly helpful. Enjoyed the breakfast and typical Namibian dinner they made (just let them know in advance you'd like to join). Nice pool & friendly dog. The local road the worst of all the Namibian D roads I drove but the grader was starting to smooth it - and it had good signage. You can climb to the top of the rocks for a great sunset view. I'd recommend it.
very special location, well maintained
Helpful people, great campsite with private facilities
Madisa camp was a great surprise. We didn't expect such a warm welcome and such a site. This is one of our best night!
This was our absolute favourite!
Absolutely in the middle of nothing and nothing to do (once you have seen the sights); maximum good for one night but overpriced. Dinner was a good brai but nothing more
Excellent place with friendly staff, nice campsites, and lots of little rock hills to be climbed. We sat atop one at night to enjoy the stars and Milky Way.
The water of the shower must be heated by yourself by making a campfire. That takes a while ...
the Team is very sympathetic et the site is beautiful
A nice place to stay while exploring all the cool sites that the area has to offer. Although we were a little disappointed that the campsite was not yet running any of their activities (elephant tracking or village tour), the campsite itself was picturesque and a wonderful place to set-up as we explored Twyfelfontein, the petrified forest, and the other sites in the area.
This was another favourite campsite. The sites are mostly laid out along a dry riverbed and are spacious, private and well-designed. The area for overland vehicles is separated from the rest of the camping sites. Each site had their own elevated shower and toilet. Hot water is provided by a donkey system, although we were happy with cold showers. Sites had newly laid-down sand, power, lighting, sink, braai and a shady tree. The area is used by the local people for grazing cattle and goats.
A really quiet spot when we stayed, especially on our second night as there was hardly anyone else there. The new owner was away but her mum was on site running it and it was nice. Again a large pitch, with 'ensuite' open air shower, toilet and wash basin. It takes longer than 30 minutes to warm up the donkey water tank, so be prepared for that or a cold shower. We ended up with the latter. However, the views from the shower, and the surrounding koppes, were stunning. There were a few flies here (compared to other sites), so a good place to perhaps have insect protection.
"peaceful!" We were the only visitors!. A very pleasant place!
The services are a bit basic, and the campsite is far from the amenities of the region. It is well located as a stopping point to the south, though.
