A wonder of nature. Everything at this place is unique and excellent. The accommodation , the food, the excursions,the atmosphere, the service- out of this world! In winter time they have sometimes specials due to the cold temperatures in the night in the desert. A visit is a life time experience!

The average you drive over and camp on is 80 million years old and thee are some petrified coral refs who beat everything being 545 million years old. To walk away from... More

To visit Sossusvlei is an experience never to forget. Sand dunes, green trees and dead trees combine into an unreal world. We entered the park at Sesriem camp. The staff were efficient. We had drinks in the bar, the beers were ice cold on a hot day! The price for draught beer was very good. The public toilets were very... More

Children friendly camping environment had a great time. Swimming walking trails and camp fire bbq. Camping sites not to close to others so you have privacy.

At the end of our two week safari we came to the Tok Tokkie Trail, met our guide for these three days and two nights and started off onto the dunes. Our first day was a short one, just the late afternoon ending in our first camp where we got to see what our 'room' looked like for the night.... More

We stayed 2 nights and enjoyed their 4 wheel drive track a chance to see the scenery in changing light magnificent at the ends of the day.... More

Namibian Horse back Safaris are an excellent company that made our week so very special. Run by Meagan and Andrew Gillespie - who went out of their way to give us all a once in a lifetime experience. The horses were fantastic and well paired to each rider. Wolwedans Boulders camp is spectacular and the landscape riding out is vast,... More
