Terrific camp and accommodation in a brilliant setting next to the Orange River Canion.
Stunning, but please tell visitors that they cannot "braai"at the chalet, but at the camping ground. We expected to have a braai facility at the chalet.
Nice, staff NWR not always very friendly, but well kept campsite
Excellent campsite with good facilities.
very well equipped. Employee very helpful
Borderlines of each campsite not clear, perplexing. Clear borderline would be helpful.
NWR campsite, but everything was done properly, no comment.
Ok but there was no hot water in most of the shower.
Three nights too long. 1-2 would have been enough. Fortunately were able to transfer a night to Luderitz. Namibia Wildlife could do a lot more in terms of activities. Shop could be better stocked. Lady at reception very helpful though.
A gorgeous area of the country with breathtaking views of the Fish River Canyon. Fun to explore.
basic campsite, but very close to the canyon (10minutes drive) currently under construction (new facilities and a restaurant) there are baboons around, we didn't see them, but we saw some in Ai Ais: Be carefull
Spent two nights here to see the canyon. The first night was great, but on the second night several Overlander vehicles arrived and the ablutions could not cope with the influx of people. Individual sites were located under shady trees and had power, lighting, a braai and a tap. A small shop on site sold beer. Given the popularity of Hobas, I might be inclined to stay outside the park next time. The canyon itself was stunning and we spent the entire day driving/walking along the edge admiring the views.
Simple but well located
ordinary. Good for visiting the canyon viewpoints.
Nice campsite, clean ablution blocks.
A nice camping, very clean like most places in Namibia. Useful place to stay on our way to Fish River.
Of all the NWR resorts, this one was really stands out. Facilities well maintained, campsite impeccable. Very friendly and helpful staff.
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.
Super camp site, a communal shower block but very clean. A well organised and lovely atmosphere, Nearly met some baboons. No views from here but not far to go for the canyon.
Very nice and clean campsite. They have a pool and little supply shop where you can buy basic thing. A great location to go and see sunset at the Canyon.
Hobas Campsite is well-maintained and neat. The bathrooms were kept nicely with hot water, the campsites were clean and swept. The best feature was the welcoming staff! My only recommendation is for more food options, especially for those with food allergies. Thanks, Hobas!
You can`t pay anything by credit card and there is no telephone reception/ wifi. This was no problem, because we had brought quite a bit of cash and still had enough, but it is probably a good thing to know beforehand. We didn`t see a single baboon. The camp felt very `lush\`and warm after the cold and dry Desert House Inn. We arrived at lunchtime and the shop sold home made chicken pasties which were very tasty. (we got them again the next day)Very limited amount of other food available, but we made the most of spaghetti, sandwich roll and tinned veggies. We had a lazy afternoon and visited the canyon at sunset. Because we had an extra night there, we went to the canyon again the next morning and went to Ai Ais for the afternoon. I had brought my park fee ticket which the Ai Ais lady stamped and dated on the back so we didn`t have to pay park fees again and only had the pay the N$30 pp for use of the pool. Bliss!! Like stepping into a bath tub. Clean warm water. Wonderful. I felt so clean and `undusty`. The road there was not good though. Badly corrugated for nearly the entire 60km (there and back) We stopped at the Canyon village resort to celebrate my sister`s birthday. The food (buffet) was good and the service was very good too. The curio shop has nice things and is not outrageous in price.
Lovely campsite. Clean ablutions. Adequate supply shop. Our hike in the canyon turned into a bit of a drama as I broke my leg badly and had to be airlifted out of the canyon. We never made it to Ais ais
No water!No explanation or apology.
The woman who welcomed us was an angel! site very pleasant.
Great campsite, small pool though
Just 10 minutes driving to the canyon. The camp site is ok but nothing special.
Very nice; clean ablutions; beautiful walks in close vicinity but not advertised,
Nice, clean and friendly place. Will recommend it.
Basic but very good campsite. Clean facilities and no crowd.
Nice structure probably to be improved. We stayed at the Camp Site, and it is missed for example a booking assignation of the camp number. This could create some discussions.
Clean and ok. Had everything we needed.
Booking was good with Cardboard Box. Hobas Staff welcoming, friendly and efficient. Park ranger on duty not very friendly as experienced in other parts of Namibia visited. Signage to Hobas was not very good, although it was easy to find with the directions supplied by yourselves. Ablution facilities were adequate.
Nice campsite - shadow places - would come back!
campsite OK - but one night there would be sufficient - the next time I would stay one night at the Ai-Ais resort
Very nice campsite
Nice tree shaded site, electricity only in the morning and after noon might be a problem in hi summer to keep food chilled
Nice choice of campsites. Was nice that the management came and checked that we were happy. Ablutions weren` the best, was an issue with hot water. The recycling system is a good initiative.
Good campsite. Poor maintenance of ablutions-but clean.
small which is nice, but least favourite of all sites. Also gates don't close at sun set so you don't have to test your rally driving skills to get there on time.
great campsite, beautiful, doesn't live up to its 'basic' reputation, hot showers and helpful staff.
Rather basic, bathroom not very clean and on one night overcrowded.
The hobas camp is basic, but there is the possibility to stay one night in hobas and see the canyon (to suggest the only 4x4 itinerary with wild zebras and antelopes) and a second night in ais-ais. Here there is the new spa with hot water: very comfortable!
very nice, great with kids
we have never met such kind people as the men who worked there - our car broke down and we were stranded nearby for 48 hrs. They told us we were therefore "their family" and looked atfer us so well. the campsite is lovely, although the swimming pool was empty?
