Tsauchab is run by a family providing a very good service and ensuring a great atmosphere. The place has lots of personality (metal art all over) and is embedded in a wonderful nature. Good food. Stay 2 nights.

The owner, Johan is one of the most helpful people I have ever met with the best camp I have ever come across in Southern Africa. The campsites are well thought out with unique features including a toilet block being built into a fig tree. The reception area has a nice bar and pool and there's plenty of supplies in... More

Driving over there turned out to be an adventure already. The gravel roads are quite terrible and one of our tyres didn't make it. Arriving at the Tsauchab River camp eventually I learned that Johan the owner does also trade tyres; hence I could replace the broken one with a very good used one of the same brand and model....

We have just returned from a 2 week trip touring Namibia which included 1 night at Tsauchab River Camp. We had a really lovely time staying there and we were met by one of the warmest welcomes we had in Namibia. Our allocated room was a lovely little stone building set on its own in the bush beautifully decorated and... More

We were made to feel welcome right from the start. A puncture had delayed our arrival until after lunch but no problem, a very tasty sandwich was soon rustled up for us. We had the eagle chalet, about a 15 min walk from the restaurant but how lovely to be out in isolation with just the stars and odd animal... More

We stayed in the camp ground - very quiet, pleasant and full of birds. Asked if they do dinners - only to find that, here in the middle of nowhere, they can put on an excellent spread in a very stylish dining room. Highly recommended

Upon entering you are greeted by a vast number of sculptures which the owner welded together from old farm scrap. He refuses to be called an artist, but some of the pieces are really cool. The reception, restaurant and bar feature a farm stall and here we come to the second most important feature. You can eat at the restaurant... More

Very nicely located chalets in the bush on the river bank. Amazing starry sky. Deep silence between the mountains. The eagle room is perfect for romance. The other huts are located at 50 meters distance. Our children stayed in their own huts with twin beds. We made a day trip to Sossusvlei.

How can more than 90 people stay in a campsite and not know about each other? Just spread them out over 15 km. We stayed at the birds paradise site which was lovely. Each family could pick its own spot. The shower and toilet facilities clean and water wonderfully hot - if only we could have had it in the... More

This was our first stop en route to Sossus Dune, but it was so much more than just a place to break our journey. We were warmly welcomed and made to feel at home throughout our stay. Nothing was too much trouble. The food was fresh and home-cooked. We were given excellent advice and maps to explore the extensive estate... More
