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.

Our travel agent recommanded this camp to us and we can only highly recommand it to anyone! The Agama river Camp half way between Solitaire and Sossusvlei was our very favouritve place in Namibia to stay!! We absolutly... More

We spent three night and it was absolutely amazing to enjoy the peaceful and quiet area around the lodge. There is "nothing" to do besides of watching the sunset, enjoying stars and really coming down from the normal stress life. The rooms are comfortable and have everything you need. Special Recommendations is the delicious dinner and sleeping at the roof... More

We stayed for 3 nights in August 2013. Accommodation was very comfortable, staff were friendly and the home cooked food was awesome. We were a big crowd who took over the place, but they managed with ease. Sunsets on the upstairs deck are very special against the backdrop of the desert.

The website and the visuals do not do full justice to this beautiful property run by Monique and Jon Leach. Located 30km from the Sesirem gate which serves as the entry point to the Desert National park, the chalets are ringed by a range of hills which provide a spectacular sun set setting. No need to drive anywhere but take... More

We stayed at Agama River Camp for 1 night on the 22 December 2013 and we are sad that we did not stay for 2 nights! The place is amazing, the staff is friendly the food is out of this world! We really felt at home there and were sad that we had to leave. I would definitely go back

Stayed here for 2 nights as part of a tour so I am unable to comment on value for money etc but this was the best place I stayed on the whole trip. Everything was lovely. The staff were really friendly and helpful, the food was delicious especially the dinners. The bungalows were spacious, clean and very well appointed. Each... More
