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

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!

This was the first campsite that I took on my trip and definitely one of the best. There is a sunset deck up at the lodge, which is a great place to hand out and have a beer as the sun goes down. The mountains surround the area, which is ridiculously gorgeous. There is a pool, which I imagine would... More

Stayed for 1 night at the campsite. About an hour from Sossusvlei if you are going north. Campsite looked to have about 7 pitches well spread out with fencing separating them. Ours was next to the ablutions block which meant it wasn't very private (some of the others looked much quieter). Ablutions are an amazing open to the sky design,... More

My wife and I stayed in room 2 whilst on a safari tour, so I can not comment on the price. The room was very large, clean and had a very firm bed, but comfortable. The rooms have a balcony on the roof, which is a perfect place to watch the sunsets and sunrises. We ate breakfast and dinner there... More

The campground at Agama River Camp is pleasant with privacy fences between neighboring sites and trees in relatively large sites. The ablutions block is artistic and functional. Hot water only in the evening though. Our site was next to the ablutions block which we found to be less than ideal because of all the foot traffic coming by on their... More

Nice secluded campsites (we stayed in the one in the most distant corner), with their own braai and water supply + sink, but toilets/showers are in a shared ablution block in the center of the campsite. Campsites are very well spaced out from each other, so you can't really hear the other campers. It's not the most luxurious of campings... More

We stayed at the campsite for 2 nights in July 2014. The sites are moderately large and very nicely presented with a fireplace, running water, a sink and a light to attach to your car battery. The toilet / showers are a design sensation and the wood-fired hot water plentiful and, well, hot. There are also chalets and a restaurant... More

We stayed 2 nights in June and were warmly welcomed by Ronel at our arrival who is really a great host. The food was delicious and the atmosphere very relaxed. Free internet is available in the lobby. The staff was friendly and helpful and treated the guest one evening on African songs in their local language, which was really nice.... More

Great setting with really nice chalets, great food and very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable staff. I think that you get far more than the price would suggest you should. Also a really good location for the Sossusvlei and a good spot to relax. Would definitely stay here again.
