This is one of my favourite campsites of our trip. It is very well Set out, it has a very humorous outlook and a wonderful vantage point to observe hippos .
Cool vibe here. Staff has great sense of humor. We did the game drive from here and saw many animals. The camp sites have really neat bush toilets. The only drawback was a sewer smell next to campsite 16.
What is not to love about this place. We had a tree house ( no 5 and a half no less ) where we could lie in bed at night with the front open looking out to the river. Sleeping with the chorus of hippos grunting and elephants trumpeting. No frills again here,no internet limited power but a hot shower or a hammock to lie in is all one needs. The real draw card here for me is the much underrated Mahango national park just down the road, a little pocket of wildlife.
Awesome place! Campsites and bar next to the river, very enjoyable atmosphere, cheap day trips, toilets and bathrooms with river view and so on. Definitely recommended!
Highly recommendable, in fact Ngepi Camp was one of our Highlights
The tree house concept was very nice. The camp is informal with a friendly staff. Not so very much to do unless you are in to fishing. I was advised that a private game ride in the reserve (in my own vehicle) would not show any animals (at this time of the year) and there wwas not enough of guests to facilitate an arranged ride with a proper guide etc. Nice stay all the same.
Loved it will definitely go back in 2018. The people there were so friendly and made you feel so welcome. And camped next to the river was amazing.
Great experience because the owner runs the place differently than other lodges, i.e. in a durable, sustainable way. Very inspiring!!
Beautiful camp near the Okavango, many birds....
Fantastic camp, extremely friendly and nice. Many funny things and signs everywhere. One of the best camps i've ever stayed. I wish i could stay longer.
Absolutely lovely campsite! Very special, felt as being on vacation! We saw a lot of elephants during the sunset cruise
Wonderful setting. People lovely. Really an upgraded camping site which is great. Be prepared for the road getting there.
Excellent!! Nice hippo pool, great location, very relaxed atmosphere and nice staff. Free coffee/tea and wifi are awesome. The treehouses are amazing, and the campsites have power sockets and water but no lamps. Lots of mosquitoes, bring repellent.
The one place we were not very happy about. Seemed disorganised. Inefficient, very slow, no information. Breakfast served late, and dinner not worth the money. They also ran out of food the second day (!) Poorer service and place in comparison with the others.
Ngepi camp is efficient for a step around this area, but they are not realy helpfull, and the Tree House are "just" a tent in the middle.. of a mess of branches and bush : our tent was 3 meters from the river... but we could not see the river.. ! And about camp site, if you want a warm water shower, you have to buy your own fire wood in order to make fire under the boiler.
The family liked the place for its well organised eco-features.
a fantastic experience to sleep in the trees in front of Okavango river!
Really fun experience staying in the tree houses at Ngepi and hearing the hippos at night!
very chilled out camp, good facilities and beautiful sites in the trees on the akavango
Nice place, but ablutions could be cleaner. Service was polite but not particularly friendly. Treehouses were spectacular.
Nice place to stay, with sound of hippos at night on adjacent river, protected swimming in the river. Specialised bird and other trips. Bush toilets and showers are a special feature.
A wonderful, laid-back, relaxing stop. We loved this place!! The hippie atmosphere and the relaxed staff made this one of the best stops on the entire trip. The only time during our stay here when we weren't chilling out was when we were out for a mokoro ride and getting chased by hippos. This was a beautiful place to relax, get in touch with nature, and love life.
We loved the camp and all the special facilities and ideas behind. We 'll come back.
One of our favorites. Nice atmosphere, good food and the prices are great.
The road in was a bit sandy for a small rental car but this was my favorite campsite and setting in Namibia. Could have easily chilled out there for a few extra days.
Very beautiful campsite with very good food.
Brilliant birdlife in camp. A walk with the guide is a must. Well-run and some brilliant unique accommodation options. Highly recommended.
Stunning place. We had tree house 17 which was secluded, right on the river and a perfect place to unwind. Lying in bed we were serenaded by Hippo, Elephant, Lion and in the morning and late afternoon by the Fish Eagle. Food was acceptable and drinks cheap. Wonderful little place of Edwin
This grew on us after initially being uncertain. We thought the evening meal was a non event but the bar meals were fine. I think he does trade on the ecological aspects to cut corners though!
A little busier than we were expecting as this is quite a popular camp. I can see why though as it`s a lovely place, very sensitively set up, loads to do and get involved in, but with very reasonable prices. The village tour was great, really authentic and interesting. We were initially concerned as there didn`t seem to be enough bathrooms for the number of campers, but in the end it didn`t seem to be a problem. Some of the camp pitches seemed set up slightly oddly - you can`t park on the grass which limits your options, and it turned out we had communal sinks/kitchen area within what looked like it should be our pitch - so privacy is non -existent when camping here! Overall well worth a stay here, but a little too busy for me to stay for an extended length of time. Nearby National Park is fabulous for game viewing.
wonderfull place. The atmosphere was very good!! This was the best campsite we have visited.
Loved the accommodation! Bamboo curtains to three sides, almost overhanging the river. My car alarm went off at 3:00am, resulting a scary torch-lit (and probably stupid) walk in the dark. The new management are making a great effort to pick the place up and it will be even better in future
An unusual place but we enjoyed our time there. The tree houses are an interesting experience.
Wonderful all round experience, great campsites,quirky ablutions!,good service and food.
We were slightly worried about what to expect, but I think I had asked Allison for this camp, so it was down to me. As it happened they really gave us an excellent Christmas Lunch, which made Christmas for us. It does seem a bit disorganised and some of the staff do have training issues, but we gave this 4/5 on Tripadvisor. It might only have been 3/5 had it not been for the efforts they went to on Christmas Day.
The way to the camp is very sandy and less experienced 4WD driver should be aware of it.
Good but better for younger people, slightly disorganised but internet very good.
What a surprise to stay in tree house and setting. Should have stayed another night
We were disappointed with Ngepi.It was dirty and disorganised.The local guides crowded the bar area and restaurant all day.I never saw the Manager during our 2 night stay.I am not sure how they ever received a Getaway award.
A good place to stop. Food and service were good, with an old-world atmosphere. The river cruise was noteworthy however.
Really nice place to stay two days. I love the fact that they are self-sustainable (surplus!) and joining them for dinner is the best you can do because the food they prepare for dinner is outstanding!
this is the place we love love loved staying at,so happy we got two days here, but thought the staff was unhappy and unfriendly
Very pleasant campsite. We had spot #2, and it was very quiet and peaceful. We also took the river cruise and saw lots of hippos--very special! Lovely place.
Camp was excellent. Food excellent in evening although breakfast ordering a bit weird. Order at bar - gets passed through to kitchen (or not in our case). Some people left after waiting too long for cooked breakfast.
Great location, but treehouse was in a poor state. Management did not show much interest and unfriendly staff. No one showed us around. Dinner was served late (after 8 PM), and we had to skip breakfast because it was only available after 7 AM. Place needs some extra investment and a management that is more involved.
quirky, but we got into it. staff very nice. food good. boat ride was great.
Excellent service, very amusing and also very knowledgeable. Will definitely go back there when I return in the future.
beautiful location, good food
Loved this one. Treehouse was great. Major chill out by the river. Good food /bar.
We loved Ngepi because you really can relax there. The accommodation is fairly rustic - that was a bit of a shock to me, but because the general `living areas` (bar, pool, sundeck, lawns etc) are so lovely, you forget about the bathrooms in particular. The rooms are essentially bamboo huts, and they were very neat and clean. I think perhaps the bathrooms could be tidied up slightly, but don`t mind that they have no roofs. I did think that the food, especially the set meals each eventing, were over priced. R120 for meatballs, rice and veg and a slice of apple pie was a bit much, and the same the next night for roast chicken. We got around that by ordering burgers from the lunch menu late in the afternoon as an early dinner. However, all that doesn`t detract from the fact that we really did love our time there, especially the fact that the kids could roam freely on bicycles or fish, and swim in the pool in the river and we really enjoyed our trip on the mokoros on the river. All the staff were friendly and helpful too.
Lovely rustic place, be sure to know there is no doors on the chalets and you are not walking distance to reception, signage to the camp and roads are confusing and makes you feel intimidated in strange country, but otherwise this is a awesome beautifull truly African experience. Will definitely return.
Fantastic - river side campsite great environment
Ngepi camp is always a winner, should have stayed longer
This was the most amazing camp of all!! I would defintely recommend anyone who visits this area to make a stop for a few nights here. Overlander groups are situated in a separate camp area, so ablutions were perfect, and very romantic! We ended up staying here for 2 nights and only spent one night at the Popa Falls Resort.
