Beautiful. SImply beautiful. And Sven, the German chef was a very unexpected jewel - the food and the conversations made the stay even better. The place was quite quiet at the time so we deserved the full attention of the whole staff. And there was plenty of attention. Wifi is available in the public rooms.

Monique & Jonathan So far the best lodge I ever stayed. Excelent service and staff. The food was marvellous, tasty, well seasoned. All prepared with care and professionalism. Not too luxurious, but in a nice way, comforting and calm environment. Personally I was able to focus and study. It surpassed our expectations. Highly recommended! André

We arrived at Agama after being stranded in Sossusvlei for almost 5 hours. We were pretty stressed, filthy from trying to dig our 4x4 out and pretty late. The rest of the lodge were sitting down to dinner. The staff were extremely friendly and unfazed by our late arrival. They quickly served us food so that we caught up with... More

I was pleasantly surprised with this gem on your way to Sossusvlei. I camped and rented equipment from Agama - and it was fantastic. Everything was set up when I arrived late at night, in addition to a well-prepared meal. And the staff was really helpful arranging my early morning trip to the Sossusvlei. I'd highly recommend this to anyone!

The stairs that lead you onto the top of the bungalow are a very good and unique idea. The buildings are simple, but nice and clean. The restaurant was very good. It would have been nice to have tea and coffee facilities and a Mini Bar in the room.

We had a great stay at Agama River Camp. We were there for 3 nights. The staff were very helpful. The food was absolutely delicious!! It was an extremely enjoyable stay! The only downside was the distance to Sesriem but we had a packed breakfast each morning so we could have an early getaway.

I loved this place. From the entrance it looks odd but the small chalets are very nice and well appointed. The main building is wide open with a nice bar and a buffet area for meals. There are two very friendly doggies that are happy to see new guests. I spent 20 minutes rubbing the belly of Sadie and playing... More

The campsites were spacious enough but when we arrived at the reception, we were told that the restaurant could not be used by campers and that the bar was closed to campers after 6pm, while it remained open for other guests. We did not like this at all! We went to have dinner close by at another place where we... More

ResDest, Director of Sales at Agama River Camp, responded to this review

Thank you for your review, as I can remember you arrived in the late afternoon, early evening with no previous reservation! All our marketing material and correspondence will reflect that meal bookings for our restaurant must be made at least 10 days in advance, We do NOT have an ‘al la carte menu’ or a ‘buffet’ but a ‘set menu’...

My husband and I camped at Agama River Camp for 3 nights. The campsite was fantastic (we had #1, right beside the river bed), It was very clear that a lot of thought had been put into designing a "perfect" camp spot, and it was really one of the nicest camp sites we've ever stayed at, and very quiet. We... More
