Allison advised us to camp inside the park - the Lodge was full - and we are glad we did. This is a much bigger (and busier) campsite. Amenities are excellent.
NWR staff on the campsite not very friendly, but campsite itself good
Perfectly fine camp, though some campsites are better than others. We had a good one - #28. Not a 'wilderness' experience so if you have clients who are really looking to be away from everything, its not great that way - especially if other campers are playing music. But very important to be inside the gates at sunrise, so you can leave very early to get out to the dunes before it gets to hot and crowded. On this basis alone, it is worth it to stay here.
Great camp sites with plenty of space, each with a tap and barbecue facility etc.
perfect to leave early to sosusvlei
Very well equipped campsite, nice having the bar too. Facilities were very clean. No problems st all.
We had Camp 4 and we still love the rceptionist lady (Prisca) for giving us that campsite. It's a beauty, we still miss it!
Clean campsite, kind staff!
Location was ideal, as we were within the gates of the park and could easily make the trip for sunrise. The camp was well signed and had large designated areas for each group. The facilities were clean and well positioned and the staff were helpful during check in.
The camp is very well placed, so one may enter the park earlier than the hundreds of tourists... The pool is very small and with practically no sitting places The camping is enormous,one has to choose his place at the external borders and that it is ok; places inside are like a parking (crowded, noisy and too near one other) !
We encountered a huge sandstorm, which felt a bit dangerous. Could have received more information at check in if this is common, or if it was known through the weather forecast. The campsite itself and the infrastructure was very good.
Nice camp. Useful being able to travel towards the dunes before the public. Good small swimming pool and nice facilities. We enjoyed having a site with a little space surrounding it (didn't feel too crowded which was nice).
An absolute highlight - a beautiful campsite on the edge of the very wonderful Sossusvlei. Peaceful, good facilities, excellent access to the dunes and a wonderful tree on our site, big enough to put up a hammock! If you're South African, remember to tell them before paying for park fees, because they charge standard foreigner fees unless you tell them you're a neighbour!
Functional campsite for the early morning trip to the dunes. The restaurant offers a shady spot for several beers while you wait to be served. Slightly muddy pool offers a great way to cool off and diversion for kids in the hot afternoon.
Excellent location for getting to dunes early. The shuttle service was very easy so we didn't have to drive on the 4x4 road the last leg. The campsite is very crowded. It would be helpful to select a campsite that is on the edge. We were in the middle of large, loud groups.
First camp site experience in Namibia, it was wonderful except that it was very windy and sandy while we were cooking. But, we are still loving it.
We never had warm water while we stayed there. n winter that is a bit uncomfortable.
Enjoyed Sesriem Camp. Although sufficient showers available, they need attention. Otherwise enjoyable.
Really convenient for early morning entrance to Sosussvlei. Otherwise not So great. Camp feels over-crowded. We were probably unlucky but water was not running for all 3 days and it made it a bit difficult with such amount of people in the camp.
We were extremely happy, most beautiful setting, unfortunately never (not in the morning and not in the afternoon) could get hot water in the men's bathrooms.
Of all the campsites we stayed in in Namibia, this was probably the most basic one. However, if you want to camp close to Sossusvlei and be there early for sunset on the dunes, it is the best option. All facilities were present.
enjoyed although ablution got a bit full at times
It was good to have a place inside the park as we were able to start our drive to Soussusvlei before the park opened to other people. However there was a lot of noise during the night due to generators and road works nearby, which spoilt the atmosphere a bit
There wasn't good places for cooking at the campsite, otherwise, it was a good experience. The wind was extreme but we know you have no control over the weather.
Honestly, it's a bit expensive comparing with Etosha campsites of NWR ... I mean, it's spartiat, no table, no general or local lighting (and when the night fall at 6pm, you would like just a few light to eat ...). I know that we are in desert, but just near our campsite, there were some tables like a bar but no light ... However, landscapes are amazing.
Basic camping site with basic amenities, sanitaries are old and everything isn't working very well.The places are quite nice under the trees, but you are very close to others with no privacy and the place stays quite noisy even at night. But the real true advantage is the location : next to the gate to the road of Sossusvlei, campers are allowed to access the road (60 km of tarred road) 1 hour before the others and be the first to climb Big Dady, the biggest dune above Dead Vlei, at Sunrise. That is a priceless experience ! One precious advice to every visitor with no experience of driving in the sand with a 4WD: stop at the first parking and take the 4WD bus shuttle or you will get stucked in the sand with the car before 200 meters !
Worst and a complete mess, but I do understand that it is the only camp inside the park and that allows guest to get prior to sunrise on Dune 45 You could just prepare the guests to the big mess that is this camp BTW, no water nor electricity one day...
Great camp - has everything needed for a comfortable stay. the staff were very rude in the shop but that didn't bother us too much. The wifi was also not given when asked. access to the park is great for the early morning.
All good - facilities etc were impressive and open to non campers as it is the headquarters for the park. Great to be able to get in an hour before the others.
The best place to stay in Sesriem.
Facilities a bit run down and Saturday night big party by locals till 3 AM. Rest all good.
Great campsite and very convenient for going to the sand dunes.
Very well managed camp (even has a sick bay with medical assistance). The place to stay/camp when visiting Sossusvlei.
Staff was not very friendly, even though we got what we needed. A little bit like public state service office.
Wonderful place, the camping site had problems. No hot water in the womans bathroom, broken floor in womans bathroom, stuff like that.
The facilities were adequate but unspectacular, as we expected given our research. We concur with reports we had read that the main reason to use this facility is the opportunity to reach the dunes for sunrise. We were pleased that we booked here for that reason.
Nearby garage for tire repairs came in handy - noted this routes receives a lot of traffic especially over the holidays, but this was the toughest stretch of driving of the entire trip. Warm reception and a beautiful stop. Dune 45, the drive to Dooievlei, and especially exploring Sesriem Canyon was a treat. Worthwhile to be inside the park.
A beautiful campsite with all clean amenities. We really appreciated the beauty of this campsite
Perfect and with astonishing views... one of our favorites
Great camp--wish we could have spent more than 1 night there. Very sandy.
Staying inside the gate allows you a half hour start in the morning - important if you want to climb a dune for sunrise or be at Deadvlei early. The staff tried to offer me a site with no shade (okay for 1 night but not my 3), then an informal site without electricity - but after polite persistance on my part did give me an excellent location with a large shade tree for the three nights I was there. They discussed that my voucher wasvfrom Cardboard Box several times which I think helped. It can be windy with blowing sand which is to be expected. The restaurant service was rather indifferent and the food very average but okay. Ablutions okay.
Someone suggested the other campsite was better at Sesrium - not sure if it was true. Restaurant food certainly pretty dire. But still much better than Zim national parks. Amazing location with Oryx wandering about the camp.
Big shaded camping area, lovely view, facilities tired but clean. Excellent location, friendly reception team.
Good campsite pitches with shade. a little A little noisy when large overland truck groups arrived Really god location in park allowing early access to dunes at sunrise
This camp has one disadvantage - there is no possibility to hummer tent's pin into the ground because the ground is concrete! This means you must use heavy Stones and still tent isn't pitched well. Beside this great place to stay.
Fabulous spot. Loved everything!
Little disappointed with the camping here. Had a spot with no shade and not a whole lot of assistance from staff. Had my electricity go out and it was promptly dealt with though. Glad I stayed here to make the early run to Deadvlei.
Nice, perfect for an early start to Sossuvlei
The Sesriem Camp is very useful for tourists going to Sossusvlei. The check-in was handled without any Problems.
Busy, noisy and crowded. Only real advantage is that it's within the park, but don't expect much. Bathrooms were not that clean. There are much better camping options just outside the park gate, but you won't be able to enter/exit the park at the same times.
Big groups were placed just inbetween the campsites, the campsite looked very much overbooked. There was enough space for the groups but about 75 people sharing 3 toilets and 3 showers was too much.
Commensurate with the fee paid. The local shop is not very well stocked compared to the one at the garage. Perhaps let people know this. Got mixed messages about the availability of wifi - which dod not end up being available. it would be nice if all the camping sites were provided with a brick wall - provides some "privacy" and protection from the wind. This time we found the tour trucks were a bit roguish - driving through the camp at excessive speeds and creating a lot of dust. (They were also very "lawless" driving into the park - easily in excess of 100kph!
very windy and dusty but perfect for a one night stay to make the sunrise drive and climb to the top of the dune
The campsite was comfortable and clean. The ablutions are quite old but we were satisfied with the cleanliness. It would have helped us to know exactly what time the gates closes and not only 'SUNSET'.
Great camp site, we loved our pitch under a camel thorn tree and our close encounter with the local gemsbocks! Ablutions were always clean, staff was really helpful, kind and friendly.
the best of the NWR resorts we stayed in
Great campsite, good and helpful service (the little shop has almost nothing though)
We had a quiet site which suited us perfectly. Bathrooms needs some upgrading in general, but overall we enjoyed our stay and being in the park gave us early access to Sossusvlei.
Less romantic than at the pictures, rather busy
Hot water is a problem, specially if the camp is full
Love this place.
Ideally placed to leave early for sunrise and come back late after sunset.The facilities are in good state and clean!
our least favorite. too busy. little sossus camp was much better.
all worked pretty well after having to be moved twice to different campsites.
We were surprised that their store held very few items. Campers are a little out of luck if they are hoping to refill their coolers here. We were even told we could not access their wifi as they were out of vouchers to sell. The staff in the Sesriem store were directing people to a neighboring property and their gas station/store.
Fantastic place to visit. Two nights probably also enough rather than three.
Good camping facilities, kind and friendly staff at the camping restaurant. It is great to stay inside the National Park in Sesriem, because you can't do much during most part of the day when it is unbearably hot. To stay inside the Park allows you extra time to explore during the first hours of the morning and during dusk.
Very nice camp site. Advantage of entering the park earlier.
Big camp sites with shade but campground is very busy (pool always packed) and hot.
Even if it is old and the swimmingpool small, we loved that place.
The Sossusvlei dunes were spectacular and staying at the Sesriem Camp allows you to have first access to them in the morning and last access to them at night. It is worth staying at for this reason alone. The camp itself had everything you could want in a camp.
Ideal stepping off point for Sossusvlei. The camp was great and the facilities were good.
basic campsite, enough space, but unfortunately no wind-protection
Good pitches and helpful staff. The ablution blocks are a bit run down but adequate.
Very nice place!
Good situation. Facilities just OK.
Spent 3 nights here and enjoyed our visit. The campground was not overly busy during our stay and we had a good site on the edge of the camp looking out over the plains. The ablutions were kept clean, had hot water and were more than adequate for the number of people in the camp. Sites had power, lighting, a tap and a tree (some a bit worst for wear) for shade. There was a good restaurant and well-stocked shop with fresh bread on site.
Well you go for the 1 hour head start to the dunes not for the camp site. Plus side is the camping under a shady tree (pitches 24 through 28 were near us and all good for this 28 being the best. Facilities worn but reasonably clean. Staff OK
Very nice campsite with all the facilities you need
The campsite very basic, but good location.
The campsite that was booked in our name was occupied by someone else- instead of asking them to move we were given a terrible site in the middle of a couple of large groups- very noisy. A least favourite camp site.
very nice, very nice People (although from NWR), friendly, not really clean facilities, but ok, good coffe, shop well stocked.
Beautifull spot and recomandable because in the park.
Like the other NWR camps it wasn't very well maintained. We stayed in a pitch which was part of the overflow it was very open to the wind, but it was large and shady and private. It's a fantastic location and for the opportunity to get to Sossusvlei at dawn it's worth staying here, just a shame the camp is so run down. 6/10
Very simple and basic camp site, but liked the chance to enter the Sesriem park site before sunrise and enjoy this moment direclty from the Dune 45. The restaurant is simple too and there is not much choice... but you are so closed to desert!!!!
Only worth going to to be in the park an hour before and after sunset. Staff the unfriendliest we met. Overflow pitches inadequate.
Good campsite, ablution blocks reasonnably clean. The individual campsites are very nice with plenty of space. Of course the bonus is that you get the two extra hours in the dunes (one before, one after sunset). I'd say the restaurant was ok, not great, but ok.
A wonderful spot. We had a pitch on the edge of the camp and so had a wide view over the surrounding landscape. Springbok wondered through, the pool was clean (if cold), toilet and shower blocks were very clean, and there was a reasonable shop and bar available. The greeting staff from NWR were mixed: one efficient but the man controlling the pitch bookings not so. They came across as disorganised, reinforced by finding someone else had already pitched a tent on the pitch allocated to us. We did get this sorted but this was an example of how some NWR hospitality staff still need training on customer service. People should be made aware of the popular early dash people make for the Dune 45 sunrise (which we were also part of), as if unaware the Overlanders revving up at 0520 could be somewhat of an unwelcome early morning surprise. Overall, we liked this camp.
Loved Sesriem camp and the Sossusvlei area.
Very nice campsite!
Quite easy to visit the red dunes of Sossuvlei early on the day.
Very good campsite with reasonably well maintained facilities. Not all showers had curtains, so it could become a messy affair in those. Friendly and welcoming staff. Be aware that not all the roads IN the campsite are passable for sedan vehicles and you don't get warned about that beforehand. I got stuck metres from my campsite but the camp personell assisted to get me towed out in reasonable time.
No problems. Nice site and facilities. Good shop and restaurant/bar
A bit to busy and the ablutions not up to standard. There was no shower curtains and the floor was flooded the whole time.
the Location of the camp inside the park outweights all shortcomings of NWR
I would recommend against staying here. A very crowded and run down site.
Sesriem camp was well situated and pleasant to stay in.
I arrived after dark due to a storm and river flood and was admitted without any problem. It was a huge relief after a long day of driving. Thank you for ensuring I had safe refuge.
Camp really nice, information given along with the booking confirmation (map, fact that we had to arrive before sunset, etc...) very useful, clear and precise without being overwhelming.
Very quiet and away from civilization (which was good). True camping experience.
Enjoyed the campsite!
Very happy with the campsite. They let us in even though we arrived an hour after sunset - which made us feel as if we had miraculously survived a stage of The Amazing Race! Excellent ablutions. Shop could have been better stocked - we had to go outside to the garage.
A large we'll run camp site the manager helped us book a local lodge when the car broke down some several kilometres away from the camp site, otherwise we would have been literally out under the stars.
Pleasant atmosphere and good campsite. Ablution blocks were clean, well maintained and spacious too. I think it would have helped to have professional advice for travelling in the dunes. The shuttle to Sossusvlei was not available on the 2 afternoons we visited i.e. Good Friday and Saturday.
A very nice camp area. Maybe add information like gate closing times to be back from the Sossusvlei dunes or gate opening times to go and see the sunrise at the dunes.
We really had a good stay at Sesriem and our campsite was great with stunning views of the desert!
This was probably our least favorite place, mainly due to the shared bathroom/close proximity of campers -- but it was also our closest interaction with oryx and springbok, so that made it worth it! The campsite was a little less than we were expecting from our experience with Hoada and Waterberg Camp, with not much shade -- although there were other better sites here. Still, it was satisfactory for us and we enjoyed experiencing the wide variety of accommodations.
Also a very nice campsite with good bathroom conditions, friendly staff and right at the entrance to the Wildlife Resort.
Sesirem Camp was fairly well maintained and quite big. My only recommendation is to better direct those of us without 4-wheel drive cars (ours got stuck in the sand, we didn`'t realize how deep the sand was driving in).
We liked a lot
Very good camp. Well organised. Good location.
Beautiful camping and great position to go early to Sossusvlei
The camps are nicely organised with everybody having their own electricity point and camel thorn tree for shade. The pool was not too cold and big enough for our teenagers to have some fun in. The showers were nice and warm and the toilets are clean. The shop has some basics but closed at 5. Luckily we had done a big shop in Swakopmund. It is well placed for the dune/ canyon visit and it had the advantage of allowing us to get to the dunes an hour before the park opens.
The camp site was really nice. The ablutions were clean and the park generally was a pleasure to visit. The lady at the gate could have been friendlier, but generally we had a lovely visit.
Beautiful and convenient campsites, with access to great facilities. Loved it!
I used the camper here on a great little `pitch` with views stretching out over beautiful terrain. A good restaurant for dinner and on my final day for breakfast before heading out. I missed breakfast on my first full day there but was the first on Dead Vlei to catch the sunrise for some amazing photography. Don`t stay outside the park if you want to do that! This I believe is one of only two places to choose inside the park gates.
It is not very clear how park fees is calculated. We entered the camp at 7pm on the 25 and left early the morning of the 27th but had to pay for two full days.
Again very old and tired. In need of renovation.
Great location and good value.
Brilliant, loved it. Need to mention more info on it- eg that it has a pool, in your emails.
Great campsite. Sites are well spread out, with shade. Toilet blocks are clean and well kept with hot water available any time we used them. Ideal for Sossusvlei as you need to go through the camp anyway to access the road to the dunes. Basic food and drink available. We rated this 4/5 on Tripadvisor.
Good location good camping area. Everything you need available
Well organised campsite. Proximity to gate at early morning opening a huge bonus!
The campsite was ok. Please make sure though to book one of the original campsites, as the new campsites do not provide the same facilities (e.g. a tree with shade, etc.). Rating: 7/10.
not many showers there, queues
A nice camp with some grumpy and some lovely staff. Shame about the generator running all night.
Excellent camp site, worth every cent.
The less pleasant people. If you need nothing, please ask! But the camp is top.
Good - but generator coming on around 9.00pm for an hour of so is not good.
Good site but without Water were scarce but understandable
Good facilities. Good maintenance. Campsite very big. Very good campsite and usefull to have access one hour before and one hour late for the park.
very nice camp
We camped here for 2 nights. Great campsite, with a short walk to the communal restroom/shower (hot water for showers). I recommend that you skip the masses who drive in the morning for the sunrise, and instead head to the dunes around 2 pm. The crowds are gone by then, and my daughter and I climbed Big Daddy with not another soul in sight. We had fabulous shadows for photos on the drive out at sunset. And don`t miss hiking the Seisreim Canyon, just a short drive from the campsite--it was stunningly beautiful.
Stunning campsite, really big plots, nice pool
Spacious camping pitch. Probably less than half full - would have seemed crowded I think if it was full. Able to access road to Sossuvlei half an hr before those staying outside the camp
Good accomodation. The only camp site were you can be the first to enter Sosusvlei and experience sunrise on the top of a dune :)
Lovely camp. Did have loud neighbours for one night - had to ask them twice to be quiet in the middle of the night (without much effect!).
Sesriem Camp had vey helpful people assisting us, clean bathrooms and in general we had a very pleseant experience.
Nice camp, enjoyed our stay. Ablutions was not well maintained, but not so bad that it cannot be used.
best stay to be early in the park
The camp was very nice and the staff very friendly. The kitchen staff even let us use there facilities to prepare two meals.
Great campsite we loved it.
Sesriem campsite was wonderful - plenty of shade, space and privacy. It was raining during our stay so we spent a lot of time at the restaurant where the service was `unique`.
The location is really nice, firstly because of it's proximity to the park gate and also because of it's beautiful morning and evening vistas. We have read somewhere that people complain that the camp is noisy with lots of overlanders. Although there were two or three overlanders staying during our visit I have to say it was very peaceful. I did get woken up in the night but not other loud campers but instead by a springbok that was just outside our tent chewing on something crispy. Overall I think it is a really nice place to stay and we will go back again next time.
Very nice spacious and shady campsites. There are many activities that can be arranged in this area but very little information available. There was no signs to advertise or brochures to see what was available.
On arrival our booking was confirmed only, no mention of park fees, that was only discovered when we tried leaving the camp and told by a very rude person we dont leave until we either have park fees or leave our passports. Of the staff could not communicate properly when asked a question the reply was `hmmm` On having a cup of coffee we were told there was no fresh milk only power milk. The butter with the food was not served in a butter bowl or in little containers it was just put on the side of our plates. No one at the camp informed us there was a swimming pool, or the we could go view the canyon that we all found out from campers in the camp Inside Sossosvlei itself there are no `direction sign` so if you dont have a GPS you would never know where to find The deadvlei, or Sossovlei and the other view points. My rating for this camp and its facilities is 3/10
Very busy and disorganised campsite! Adequate for a couple of nights, but the only real reason you would choose to stay here is to have the option of accessing the dunes an hour before sunrise and after sunset, which you cannot do if you stay outside the park.
Personnel pas sympathique du tout. Néanmoins, camping agréable.
Great camp site. Showers and Toilet block really clean. Our campsite was great!
Based on our research I was skeptical of the crowds we`d find at the NWR Sesriem campsite, so it was a nice surprise to see the sites so well-spaced. We had one of the old sites shaded by a big tree and enclosed by a short stone wall. It was plenty spacious and we had water, a braai block, a campsite light, and electricity/plugs for recharging the cameras. Best of all, staying at this campsite enables you `insider access` to get a jump on the crowds -- only Sesriem campsite or Sossus Dune Lodge guests get early access to Sossusvlei -- as the external gate is opened to the public about 15 minutes after the internal access gate to Sossusvlei is opened to the `insiders`. This is essential for photographers seeking the early morning light and lack of crowds on the dunes, in Dead Vlei, etc. One final note: be sure to ask at check-in what time the gates are opened/closed since the hands on the `park hours` clocks at the entrance are clearly not updated regularly.
Well maintained, staff very helpfull and an unforgettable experience!
well organised, clean and nice campsite with the huge tree for shade.
Excellent location, clean facilities, good value for money.
Camping with basic facilities. Showers and toilets in a very bad state. Camping site itself very nice under a big tree.
Site filled with uneven sand, so much so that you have difficulty pitching your tent. Lots of thorns in the sand. Too many Overland Buses with too many people. Camp is extremely busy and noisy early morning and evening. The ablusions cannot cope with these numbers of people and are broken and dirty. Unacceptable. Very expensive and only on leaving you get slapped with the "Park Fee" which brings the fee up to R200 per person per day, irrespective if you visited the Sossusvlei or not. This has to be paid in cash, although they do not have an ATM. Their shop is a disgrace and they stock almost nothing. Bad. Bad. Very bad. We will definately not be returning, unless they get their act together.
I got one of the older campsite, which are the better ones. So I am very happy.
very crowded, sanitary facilities not very clean due to large groups of tourists - staff very friendly and helpful
Excellent camp site, good facilities and access to some of the most spectacular scenery in Namibia
Very good, nice and clean
Initial NWR attempted to bump us into the overflow (seems they had allocated stands on the main campsite to drive-ins) which they gave up after I refused, everything was fine. Great location especially for getting the early start to the Dead Vlei in the morning. As at Namutoni, Im not a big fan of a bar with DSTV in the camp. Also, having a campsite shop close at 18.10 is silly.
Nice camp but, honestly, looking back, this is the one area we would give a miss if we had to do the trip again. Great terrain but we are not sure it was worth all of the driving.
Great Campsite. Nice people. Great views. Good food.
Clean and ok. Had everything we needed.
Try to book pitch 1 to 10. These are the old pitches and are more private then the others. There is a restaurant and a small shop. The ablution blocks are well maintained, but don`t count on a very good braai area. We had diner in the nearby (walking distance) Sossuslodge, which was very nice and romantic.
The campsite was convenient and the ablution facilities fairly neat
Despite all bad comments, we loved the place. Very well organized, clean and wild place!
Very nice camp. Would go next time also.
nice place with large and comfortable camping zones, pretty clean swimming pool, nicest sanitaries we have had. shop, bar and restaurant are good.
Very full campsite - you will wake up VERY early! Many groups!
Good location and great scenery.
had a fantastic stay - thank you!
07 oct 2011 Reception not very friendly. Campsite with braai and power point and a tree that is sometimes not adapted for roof tents. Restaurant so-so. But it's inside the park so you can go to the dunes earlier than the others. Fuel station.
Excellent campsite with all facilities you could wish for. Lots of space, electricity, plenty of toilets and showers and a pool. Clean and well kept. Excellent value for money
Even if we arrived a bit late they still let us enter the camping site. We had a good time there
An individual camping place with clean toilet facilities. Friendly and helpful hosts and good bar facilities. Many birds, geckos and scorpions. Does cater for larger tour groups which can sometimes be noisy. Recommend for access to National Park.
Big positive surprise. After all we'd read we were a bit afraid of this camp. It proved to be very well maintained and a beautiful place.
Good and strategical camping because you are inside the park.
Some problem for overbooking at the reception that give us a site occuped. We solved,without help from the reception, finding a free place ( at the reception don't know that is free!)The toilet not really clean, but you can put the tent under a tree. Water and braai near the tent. Perfect place to sossusvlei
Our camp site was private - however we had to clear the thorns from the tree and clean up cigarette butts before setting up our tents. The bathrooms are okay but maintenance poor but whoever designs them has never camped!
Helpful reception, nice welcome, great breakfast
Great campsite within the National Park so you can get a head start in the morning toward the sand dunes for sunrise. The camp sites themselves are all individually walled with a tree for shade, light and braai pit. Very cool indeed.
Great basic campsite. It was really good to be inside the gates for a head start in the morning and not having to rush out at sunset.
We were given a lovely campsite, was good that they allocated a specific site to the bookings as the campsite was full. Also do the recycling system which is great. Ablutions were good.
Alot of thorns where you have to pitch your tents, which puncture all our matresses. Would be nice if they can clean/sweep it reguleraly.
Satisfied, but a little busy.
All the national park camps in namibia were beautifully maintained, with good amenities and felt very safe. excellent
good camp site. allows early departure for sossusvlei. Nice bar. could be enlarged to allow more flexibility in dates for visiting and choose of camp site.
Make sure you allow enough time to get from Windhoek to Sesriem before sunset as its a big drive and the gates close at sunset. We made it with only 5 minutes to spare. Definitely worth getting at 4.30 to get to the gate for the 5.15 opening so you an get out to the dunes for sunrise. Dont forget to look out for animals on the way back to the camp later in the morning.
Big camp sites, lovely pool, but ablutions (although cleaned regularly) again over utilised by large groups of overlanders. Very friendly management.
such a great camp
great campsite, beautiful, wonderful hot showers and clean ablutions. helpful staff, well-stocked though expensive shop, nice bar.
Shop very poorly stocked with it being a high profile tourist area we would have expected far more. Otherwise a great camp.
Very pleasant and not crowded. wouldnt want to be there in high season tho as overcrowding is evidently a problem
Very nice place, hot shower, clean, lot of space between campsites
Although we discovered we are not really "campers", found the facilities here to be acceptable -- good showers etc, useful shop.
Sesriem's washroom facilities could use upgrading to bring them to the same standard as those in Etosha.
Nothing much more than a base for the dunes.
We had to pay an added tax to entry in the park. We didn't receive any information about it
The worst camping in Namibia and the most expensive, but you can stay one hour later in sossusvlei because you stay in the camp (and it really worth it). One of the receptionnist is really kind and the other agressive (so hope you have good luck), showers overflooded, and really dirty, needs to clean more in the evening, due to the red sand from the dunes...) The camping sites are under big trees and when you have a roof tent; it's not realy convenient, you have to be really careful
The facilities and camp sites were great, and we had a wonderful time. One thing of note was that the staff was noticeably unfriendly and did not seem knowledgeable. For example, we asked them about whether it was possible to rent quad bikes. We had to speak to 3 or 4 different people (all who were rude) before finding out that it wasn't possible there. This is the type of information I would have expected them to know, given the surroundings.
Very basic camp but strategic position to enter the park 1 hour before the external tourists. The only possibility to see the sunrise on the dunes!
New buildings (shop/bar etc.) since we stayed last time. Basic infrastructure great when installed, but clearly an issue re 'ongoing maintenance'. What a pity that the place isn't run anywhere nearly as efficiently as the Engen fuel station across the road. New lady in reception (just transferred from Halali?) very helpful - hope she can influence things for the future. Still the best place to stay to be able to see the sunrise at the dunes!!!!!
We found the prices very high for a campground without electricity, but everything was clean and nice and we have enjoy the days we where there
The campsites were beautiful. The toilets, showers and swimmingpool were old and need some renovation in the future.
