The unique Tsauchab River Camp guest farm with its exclusive chalets and private camping sites is situated on the banks of the Tsauchab River, surrounded by the imposing Naukluft and Tsaris Mountains.The Tsauchab River, with its giant wild fig trees and sparkling clear springs, is the main source of water when in flood to Sesriem Canyon and Sossusvlei.This natural phenomenon abruptly ends in a dry lake at the foot of the world's highest dunes.

The beautiful sunsets combined with the indigenous fauna, and flora will leave an unforgettable impression on you.

This camp / lodge is well worth a visit! Very friendly reception and their staff looking after the camp sites well trained. Each day the site was cleaned, the donkey lit in the mornings and evenings and candles lit after sunset. Each camp site is large enough to accommodate at least 6 people and is well off to the next site. The silence and quietness is sometimes freighting but rejuvenates you. We did the 4x4 selfdrive, which I can only recommend. Some stunning views!! I will come back sometime, definetly!!

This is a wonderful place to visit. It is extremely well run and maintained and is in a very beautiful area. The rivers were prone to flooding at night and so we could not camp at the very beautiful campsites in the Tsauchab river bed. Our campsite was about 8km from the lodge and when it got hot during the day then we had to drive to the lodge to cool down in the lovely pool. The lodge is beautiful and you could spend hours examining all the interesting things. The staff are super friendly and efficient. At our campsite the supervisor made sure we always had hot water and everything was very clean and tidy. It is a bit far to drive to Sossus Vlei from this lodge but if you don't mind the drive it is well worth the visit. There are nice hikes around the area and so you should not be bored. There was no power at our campsite but I could charge my batteries at the lodge. This is a highly recommended place to visit

My husband and I travelled from SA, through Botswana and Caprivi strip to Namibia. The Tsauchab River Camp was definitely the very best camp site on our trip. I don't know where to start really. Each of the camp sites is HUGE and you are completely alone. No neighbours whatsoever. All you hear is the birds and the silence. Each camp site has its own 'en suite' shower/toilet which is so clean and spacious and .... just for you. There is a braai area and a washing up sink and tap. Sadly no electricity to each site but we plugged our freezer in to the power in an area near to reception so just popped up each day and collected whatever we needed. Every evening Abraham came down to light candles around the site which just added to the overall night time experience. We were told that often the camp sites get visits from kudu. We did not see any but there are lots of beautiful birds all around the camp site. Don't miss this place. There is a beautiful swimming pool set in the greenest, lushest, area you could imagine with sun loungers and a beautiful view all round. We didn't utilise the restaurant or bar but that is equally magnificent. The attention to detail in every aspect of this resort is incredible. Everything is spotlessly clean and the decor is so imaginative and unique. I can't put into words what this place offers. Don't miss this if you are in the ara.

The staff has been amazing, Thanks for your kindness and helpfulness during our stay. The lodge is about 45minutes drive away from Sossusvlei entrance. The rooms/chalets are in a distance to the lodge, which gives you lot's of privacy, and have only 12 Volt power (meaning no charging of any equipment and no aircon). I'm the aircon girl but at night it cooled down nicely with a breeze going through the chalet. Charging was done at the main house, so no problem at all. The food eas lekker and the sourroundings stunning. Nice pathways to explore the area. The collection and artefacts at this place is stunning,better than any museum. The camp sites looked also nice.

This lodge with chalets and campsite is beautifully located between the Naukluft and Tsaris Mountains, in an empty, deserted landscape. It is a perfect place to rest and relax, and about a 1.5 hours drive to Sesriem. Staff was friendly, meals were really excellent. Our chalet was pleasant, clean and comfortable but our bed was relatively small. Most chalets are located near the Tsauchab Riverbed, implying that the view from these chalets is limited and not enabling to enjoy the stunning surrounding mountainous landscape. This is probably the closest lodge to the Namib Naukluft Park, where for those who like to hike the Olive Trail and the Waterkloof trial can be found. It is about 40 km from the lodge to the Olive trail, so according to local standards nearby! Please note that the D854 is not the most comfortable road in the country, but this adds to the charm of this place.

They are situated in the "Naukluft", which offers superb landscapes and opportunities to hike on the lodge- or surrounding nature reserves. The camp offers chalets (all private) as well as camping grounds. If you decide to eat in-house, the food is of very good quality. Owners and staff are accomodating, helpful. definitely a recommendable establishment in the vicinity, though not the run-of-the-mill 4-star b&b....
