The camp wasn't too busy in early April, and most (if not all) individual sites has a short stone "wall" with a huge tree in the middle, great to sit and relax in the shade, and also hang your clothes to dry. All around the camp there are also hanging lines, if you don't prefer the trees or the short campsite wall. It was quiet and relaxing, and the fields around the site a great sunset view, and don't forget to look behind you at the mountains -- they turn a beautiful reddish purple color.
There is an electricity box at each site with I think two outlets. Facilities are very clean, and there are sociable weavers everywhere, and may be sharing the campsite with them, since they have their huge nests in the trees. For me, this was exciting and i loved watching the birds flying in and out of the nests, although there is the noise to keep in mind as well.
There is a bar with a tv there for those who like to relax over a cold Windhoek or Tafel.
Headlamp/flashlight is also suggested for anyone camping, especially when walking to/from the bathroom facilities or other areas at night. We found scorpions inside/surrounding the campsite in the morning, so be aware and careful of your surroundings.
Our tour did the sunrise trek up Dune 45 and also visited Sesriem Canyon in the late afternoon, so the camp was situated perfectly to be able complete these two activities in a single day.
