Some great camp sites which are clean and you can listen to wavescat night. Staff very friendly. Downside is small geyser, so choose your shower times carefully:) Be sure to book a tour of the ghost towns when visiting. Well worth the money.

We arrived late in the afternoon to a very windy campsite but, the location is amazing--on the peninsula with the ocean. The sites are well spaced-take time to choose a good site with rocks for shelter from the wind. The bathrooms were clean (although not modern) but the hot water geyser emptied after about 3 showers--so you have to time... More

To stay in a lighthouse was a unique experience which we enjoyed very much. The accommodation was comfortable, linen very clean but the general state of the place is in dire need of maintenance. Leaking taps, no bath plugs, cracked plastic chairs, rusted window frames, carpets lifting up and uncomfortable chairs in the lounge. Plenty mice running around at night.... More

Average campsite. Do take time in picking your site, it will be worth your while as the sites vary form very good to, the not so nice. Very friendly manager. As far as we could determine this is the only campsite in Ludritz.

this place gets worse every year. Shark Island is obviously a prime location and would be great for camping, but ever since we started coming here there has been no maintenance at all. The ablution blocks are a complete disgrace. I walked into the ladies room and walked right back out: toothpaste and hair sticking to the basins, dust piling... More

This was an absolute gem of a find, with the best views in Luderitz & the price is hard to beat. As a couple we booked the light house & got the whole place to ourselves. It is a two bed-roomed house on top of the hill on Shark Island over looking the campsite, harbour & town. The Bedrooms are... More

Facilities were clean, but the water at the camping site was ice cold. The security person (male) walked into the female ablution facility, told them not to worry, he is only turning off the hot water!!!! The view - fantastic but the smell from the small harbor was at times overwhelming, as well as from the ablution block that has... More

All I can say is - thank goodness we booked into the lighthouse, and not the campsite. The wind was pumping when we arrived in Luderitz, and staying in the campsite would have been extremely unpleasant. The lighthouse was clean, had DSTV, enough accommodation and the kitchen was well equipped. The views from the roof of the lighthouse are fantastic... More

The reviews for Shark Island accomodation (and some of the websites) can at times give the impression it's either in an impressive old lighhouse, or facing the elements in a wind-blown camp-site, whilst little notice appears to be taken of the 3 cottages for rent. Luxury it ain't and prices for these municipal houses are steep, but if state-owned rooms... More
