What you see on the site you get. We had a wonderful time at the Desert Camp. Lovely starry nights around the braai and the delivery service each night with our fire wood and food for the night was so convenient. A real experience of the desert at neat and tidy accommodation.

There are 3 areas to this hotel and 2 of them are away from the main hotel and you have to drive there for meals. The rooms are separate and ideal for watching the wildlife which is close. The rooms are comfortable and very clean, with all the facilities needed.

We stayed here for three nights in December. The room was lovely and had airconditioner. The kitchen on the patio is well located and sitting having drinks and a braai in the evenings watching the sun set was stunning. Lovely pool with towels and wifi. Friendly staff.

Dear Floss, Yes it is advisable to pre book your dinner (taken at Sossusvlei Lodge 4km from Desert Camp). You can also order fresh food supplies for self-catering from our reception (before 16:30) to enjoy a 'braai' at your unit. The food will be placed in your fridge by 18:00. Thanks! Best wishes, The Taleni Africa Team
