“Great Desert Accommodations”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012

I was visiting Kimberly South Africa for some work this past October and instead of making the long drive all the way up to Kgalagadi (as I did last year), I decided on somewhere a little closer to where I was starting and picked Witsand.
I'm mostly into photography and was hoping for much warmer temperatures so that I could find some snakes and other reptiles to shoot photos of while there. Unfortunately, it was pretty chilly in the days leading up so I didn't find what I was looking for.
They did have plenty of game to see. Springbok and Gemsbok were very plentiful as well as Vervet Monkeys which cruised through our patio while we were eating lunch one day.
The Chalets are very nice. Super roomy with all the ammenities you need (fridge, stove/hot plate, pots and pans).
We did do one organized hike with Richard but you're free to explore all you want into the dunes yourself. The dunes are a great place to get out and hike.

Room Tip: All of the chalets looked similar, ours was perfect. Trails right behind to go out and hike right a...

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2011

Stayed 2 nights as part of a tour. Very good experience. Quiet and relaxing. Bungalows are really large, 3 bedrooms, separate bathroom, separate shower, separate toilet, and large sitting room with kitchen. Outdoor barbecue. We ate in the restaurant, which is a 10 minute walk from the bungalow, depending which one you have. The son, gave us a tour in the white dunes and a pleasant explanation. Wildlife is at your doorstep. Birds and springbok come to drink at the fountain at your bungalow. There is a look out for bird watching. We had an evening walk in the dunes with a magnificent starry sky. First time ever we saw the southern cross so clearly. Very, very nice indeed
