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

We liked our stay at Agama River Camp. Lovely staff, good food. We went hiking in the Namib Naukluft Mountains (bit adventerous). Rooms were ok, we had everything we needed, but finishing of the rooms could have been better (no tiles, only cement floor/walls). But overall an excellent place to stay. Special thanks to Marli who made our stay very... More

We actually came upon Agama Campsite by chance. The campsite under shady trees is very spacious, the bathroom facilities clean and unique under Namibia's starry skies. An absolute treat is the pool during the hot hours of the day. We enjoyed two nights at the campsite. Ideal if you want to camp close but not in Sesriem or Solitaire.

Two couples in two vehicles arrived in the early evening to a warm welcome from the manageress and a cold one from the bar. Agama have chalets, a swimming pool and they will even feed you if you like, but we hardy roof-top-tented four were overlanding so chose to camp. Check out Agama's website to see what they offer... http://agamarivercamp.com/... More

We stayed there for one night during April 2015. Friendly staff awaited us upon arrival and we were directed to a very neat campsite with a braai, water and electricity. I think only two sites have electricity. The pool was very refreshing and we made full use of it. Although we didn’t had time to visit the bar area, I... More

Although it takes 45 mins or so to get to the gates at Sesriem, its a great place to stay when visiting Sossuvlei. Quiet and with lovely views, the camp is simple, the chalets large and clean, and with a flat roof which is great for star gazing. The staff were friendly and helpful and the food good and almost...

We enjoyed the solitude and remoteness and even the roughness of this campsite. We enjoyed having to make our own donkey fire for hot water. One big disappointment was the very poor water flow at the showers after all the effort with getting hot water ready.

We were 4 people who stayed at Agama River Camp in late March, the setting of the camp is wonderful with views overlooking a mountain range and backed by the desert, the rooms are large and clean with A/C. The staff are wonderful and the food is exceptional, prepared by a wonderful chef, it was fine dining and the best... More

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).
