3 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 days ago NEW

The chalets were comfortable, clean and had aircon. The recreation area was nice but lacked atmosphere - probably as we were the only guests at the time having meals. The meals were beyond our expectations - cooked and presented beautifully by chef Sven. The other staff were friendly and enthusiastic. Our only complaint is that we arrived at lunchtime, after...

The facilities are great (braai area, pool, bathrooms, bore water). We found the staff super helpful and friendly. Happily reccomended this to other campers. Note: sites are not powered and hot water is only available at certain times of the day (morning and night).

We spent 2 nights here. A very surprising location and great views, great room (cottage), very welcoming and friendly staff and an excellent restaurant. The guided tour with Marco to Sossusvlei was very special.

We had the Exclusive Campsite at the foot of the mountains. Just me and my wife. We stayed 2 nights and that was so nice and relaxing. Sitting in the shade of the big trees, reading a good book, watching the social weavers around their nest and on pygmy falcon who has joined the community. Facilities perfect, everything neat and...

We have spent one night to this very pleasant lodge, we got a very warm stay with competent stuff. The diner was excellent, we can only recommend this place, not too far from Sossusvlei. The owner is very friendly and we've got nice discussion with her. Many thanks to all of you. Francis & Muriel

My husband and I are quite fussy but we liked this lodge. It is right in the desert about 45 minutes from Sesserim. It certainly isn’t fancy but it was more than adequate, very clean and we enjoyed staying somewhere more connected to Namibia than some of the fancier lodges where you could be anywhere in the world. The staff... More

Agama offers good accommodation. It was the only place in the Namib Naukluft area in this price cataegory where we had air-conditioning in our room. However, the biggest bonus was the quality of the bed - by far the best sleeping experience of our trip. The staff were new and friendly, but a bit unsure of themselves. Dinner was adequate,...

We really relaxed at Agama River Camp. We purchased drinks from the bar which we enjoyed up on the roof of our villa as we watched the sun go down and the sky change colour. The stars were amazing but we didn't sleep up there. We had a good night's sleep in the comfortable beds before our early morning coffee... More

My friends and I booked 2 campsites a couple of weeks back and had an awful experience. The facilities are non existent with no electricity. The female owner was extremely abrupt and rude and had no professionalism at all. We had one of the worst experiences camping ever. Do not stay here if you want a relaxing few days camping.... More

ResDest, Manager at Agama River Camp, responded to this review

As I cannot remember hosting or meeting a ’JimS S’ from Zambia it’s very difficult to respond to such slander although we have a very good idea who this pseudonym represents, suffice to say that the vast majority of visitors to our establishment over nine years have enjoyed our many facilities and gracious hosting skills. It is a pity that... More

A stone's through away from the hustle of Sesriem we were welcomed by friendly staff and host. Each well appointed room has its own roof-top viewing deck to enjoy great sunsets. Complimented by specially prepared tasteful dinners made our two night stay a real treat. Next time I will try the campsite which also looks great!
