This was a nice place to stop over between Etosha and Swakopmund. Clean and adequate rooms with good bathroom. Nice bar & restaurant overlooking pool with a very relaxed feel. Good food and service.
another pleasant surprise, the place really exceeded our expectations (though they were admittedly not very high). the bed was comfortable, the staff friendly and accommodating, and they have a pair of African Grey parrots that you can chat with for hours! no hot water at night. an unusual billiards table at the bar, which was a comfortable place to have a couple of drinks. nice breakfast.
Nice and welcoming
A comfortable if basic stopover, with a pleasant pool and relaxation area. Pleasantly surprised by food, which was good value for money, and a well stocked bar!
Location perfect to visit white lady paintings. Clean toilets etc.
What can one say. Basil does his best.
This was a bit of a shock after the luxury of Twfelfontein but the owner and staff could not have been more hospitable. It was clean, comfortable and safe, and very good value for money. I think that the experience of extremely aggressive beggars in town may have clouded our opinion of Uis. On reflection, we should have heeded Steny's advice and spent an extra day in Swakopmund instead!
What a pleasant surprise!! The owner was a very good host and we could ask him all the questions we had about the area and the country!! We appreciated his interest in his guests and the hospitality. Food was also very good. Recommend this as a stop over. rooms was neat and clean.
staff were a bit unhelpful at the start, but were fine the next day
Do not put anyone in this hole. The showers did not work. Ended up in the room without a shower cabinet. Luckily we could cut the visit short and drive to Swakopmund. No refund as "we need the money".
A good first day stop. The pool is wonderful after driving for 5 hours. The sunset tour was a great way to absorb the space and take a break from my own driving.
Probably the least "atmospheric" of my stops; but I realize there aren't many options in that area.
Basic campsite but great pool, good food and friendly staff. Sun downer tour to the old mine highly recommended.
The swimmingpool and other facilities are ok but the campsite is not very nice. For us the stop here wasn't very interesting, even if we understand that it is necessaey to stop somewhere before between Okaukuejo and Swakopmund.
Kitchen not well equipped at all. Accomodation spacious
Unusual, eccentric, saw a little slice of Namibian life with the various parties and dinners that were held there. Very helpful owner
Rooms not up to date,first room problems with electric only one lamp work a lot of insects inside. We have changed the room but same problems with insects. Outside area nice and well kept. Employess very friendly. Dinner and Breakfast very well. Pets are amazing.
Very simple camp site, but deeply cozy! The restaurant and the bar are very nice and the whole ambience is very clean.
We feel like it would be a good idea to find an alternative to this campsite for future clients. It was not up to the standard of the other campsites. The service during check-in was rude; we weren't given any information about the campsites or the property in general. The campsite itself was occupied by a large group of workers, who were loud. There were people (not tourists) moving through the campsites throughout the late evening/early morning. Only two of the sites were equipped with electric outlets. Finally, the bathrooms were not well-maintained or well-stockes (there was no toilet paper in the morning!).
The camp was very full. Unfortunately not much rest in this camp as there was a "fly-in" that ended the night I stayed there and the participants in the event played loud music and partied until very late that night. Facilities for the price was quite sufficient.
Campsite was OK, nothing special at all. Disappointed with the owner who said that he would take us for a sunset drive, but didn't arrive. We subsequently saw him taking other people, so we must have been bumped! Would have been nice to know as we would have gone to another place to see the sunset over Brandberg
We thought the location of the camp wasn't perhaps as nice an area as the others.
we loved the quiet village
Hotel in general was well below average
Great atmosphere, incredible old style pub, kindness and good food...
First impression was that it could do with a minor face lift, but having said that, the fine gravel on the ground was a relief after all the dust and the pool was amazing. The showers were good, but there was no toilet paper in the toilets which was no problem once we knew, but all the other camps have paper in the toilets so we didn`t come `prepared`. That would have been handy to have known beforehand. The boys enjoyed the table tennis and the wifi. We visited the white lady the next day, which is a bit of a track back and it meant that after visiting the vinger klip,we didn`t have time for the fur seal colony at cape cross. If I was going to do the trip again, I would try the white lady campsite.(for no other reason then the position)
Good basic accomadation. Felt a bit less safe there. We had a room with a door out to an unsecured area. There also seemed to be quite a few people wandering about.
Logement trÃ¨s propre, bonne nourriture
We enjoyed the stay in the Brandberg Rest Camp a lot
quality can be better
Would not use it again, even though everything was sort of OK. In this region we preferred the White Lady Lodge, camping.
You have for what you pay!
Camp site is ok. Accomodation is ok. It has a nice and big swimming pool. We did a sunset trip with the owner of the Brandberg Rest Camp. This was really nice: we did a nice trip, we saw some beautiful spots and learned a lot of the town where this Rest Camp is located.
Good, clean rooms. Our `single` group member unfortunately got separated from the rest of us and stayed in another part of the camp.
OK, normal location, not to bad not excellent. Poor restaurant.
Nice place. Everything looks a bit old (70's) even if it was all repainted/refurbished. Clean flats and good beds. Prices for day trips (elephants ...) should be posted at the reception.
We were out and about most of the time. The accomodation is a bit old fashioned compared to the other places we stayed at but it didnt bother us. Also the cheapest dinner we had the whole trip (and it was good too)
Quite spartan and not too close to the `White Lady` site. It was in the town which was an advantage, but it had a Mad Max feel about it. vast, empty and slightly run down. I appreciate that it was cheaper, and that tourists should have a variety of different levels of experience.
Setting of this accommodation is not very attractive.
Very basic and possibly over priced. I would camp there (rather than stay in the lodge) next time around.
I rather prefer another Camp the next time, which is closer to the Brandberg and not in the City. It was nicer, when we were at the Camps, which were in the middle of somewhere.
least organised ( did not know about our arrival) nothing special but cheap
very clean friendly place
Really enjoyed this place, Basil made us very welcome and give us good advice about where to find the Desert Elephants. This was such a good stop over.
Looked a little down-market compared with our other accommodation. However the small terraced room was clean with pristine bedding and there is a 25m pool.
It is indeed very simple. But it was clean. For a sort stay you will survive.
Basic and very "local" with pink walls and plastic curtians - but clean, and food was ok and every body was friendly enough.
middle of nowhere, quite a strange place, lots of people from vilage came by to try and sell us gems etc, but owners were lovely, african singing in the evening in the bar etc
