After travelling the wilds of Namibia and revelling in the open spaces and lack of people we pitched up for a couple of days easy camping in Alte Bruke. The site is clean and nicely laid out with good individual shower and toilet facilities. It's close enough to walk into town which is good because there is no food shop... More

It’s been one of my favorite places to stay in the past. There are nice grassy campsites, each with its own shower, grill, and wash-up sink. I would recommend staying there and see if you like it. However, it seems business practices have changed, and the management now caters to people with large RVs. They permit two RVs in each... More

This camp site is located just between dunes and ocean, walk distance to the local attraction Jetty and city centre. Green campsite with private bath, shower and braai area brings you to relaxation at the end of the whole trip via Namibia. Clean and safe area. The staff was very professional, friendly and helpful. Walvis Bay nearby is also nice... More

Definitely the most well equipped and comfortable campsite I have stayed at. Quiet with private bathrooms and showers, a braai area, power points and well maintained lawns. Perfect for regrouping after a few days/weeks of rougher camping

We spend 2 nights in Swakopmund. The weather was windy and misty. Private ablution at this establishment. Camoing sites are relatively close to each other. Nice base to explore the surroundings. Clean and safe. Walking distance to the sea. We can recommend this camping site.

We spent 3 nights here after a stint camping in the desert and just before more camping in Etosha NP. Swakopmund is a good spot to fill up your supplies, and the Altebrucke was an easy place to base ourselves. Not pretty, but practically designed and well kept. We could park right outside our family villa (which for just 2... More

We spent three nights here in April of this year in the campground. The washrooms were spacious and clean, the braai was great, and was cleaned everyday, and the girls at the front desk are amazing. They were extremely helpful and courteous. Thank you for being part of our amazing trip to South Africa and Namibia!

Family units are spacious and well equipped for self catering, although furniture a bit outdated. Breakfast was excellent. Great location, close to the beach. Good value for money for the self catering tourist.

We spent three nights here at the campsite as part of our 2-week self drive safari around Namibia. It was fantastic. You have your own bathroom and braai and it's a wonderful break from sand and dust - you're treated to paving and grass! We were there in January so it was super quiet - not many others were staying... More
