We enjoyed our two night stay at Agama River Camp very much. The room was spacious, airy and clean and adequately furnished. A flight of stairs gave you access to the roof top from where you could watch the glorious sunsets and also get an elevated view of the rugged landscape. The meals were very good and dinner time was... More

We stayed for 3 nights in our visit to Sossusvlei. The staff were very friendly, the food was FANTASTIC! The accommodation was simple and very, very clean. Each lodge had a stairway to the roof if you wanted a private view of the sunset and to do some stargazing at night There was wifi in the main lounge that you... More

Agama was our home base for the Windhoek-Sossusvlei leg of our trip. We drove from Windhoek to Agama the first day, out to Sossusvlei the next morning, and on to Swakopmund the next day. We were the only guests at Agama when we arrived. The owners were away, but a German man was leading things and served us (cold and... More

Agama is conveniently situated close to the famous dunes, the downside was traffic noise at night. Campers were welcome to use the lodge facilities , nothing quite like sipping sun-downers on the deck with a view most people would only dream of. There was a lovely small water hole which provided a wonderful spot to photograph birds. Judging by the... More

The camp was very clean and well situated. The meal was very good. We recommend this adress for those who want to visit Sossusvlei because it's not so far and it's less "touristic", so I think it's a good value for the price.

When we arrived, we had a fantastic welcome and were told were shown the sunset deck which was a perfect place to watch the sunset with a glass of wine! The staff were... More

Friendly staff handled my initial request and then stayed up till very late at night to receive us after a delayed start in Windhoek. And even then they were still friendly and helpful! Thank you. This is in my opinion one of the better camping sites in the region. Large sites are available which are perfectly level and filled with... More

ResDes, Guest Relations Manager at Agama River Camp, responded to this review

Thank you very much for taking the time to share your experience at Agama River Camp on TripAdvisor! I'm delighted that your son enjoyed the free wifi, but am a little concerned that you didn't get to see the big screen TV and DSTV in the bar area. We hope that you enjoyed the rest of your holiday in Namibia!... More
