We found the camp site to be very average. The ablution facilities were clean. The basins all blocked up. We stayed in much nicer campsites the whole way along the Caprivi Strip. The fishing was great.

We spend 3 days fishing here. The camping sites got big trees for shade and the showers are hot. Frendly reception. The fishing rates (hire of boat and rods) are the cheapest in the area. Best place for Tiger fishing.
