This was our 3rd visit and certainly not the last. This place is a must for all nature lovers and those that prefer their camping to be simple, tranquil, away from it all (especially the crowds and large tourist groups), yet with good amenities. Spectacular desert beauty welcomes you in the Little Hunters Rest campsite. It only has 5 camping sites yet they are far away from each other. If you are like us who do not mind walking a bit to the ablutions and prefer the solitude of the spread out camping site, this is for you. Daily cleaning services are done by the lodge staff keeping the ablutions very neat and tidy. The lodge (where also the owners and staff stay) is a few kilometres away behind the koppie and out of sight. You are not aware of anyone else on the farm nearby except your fellow campers. For first time visitors - you need to ensure you have enough fuel, food, drinks, etc for your camping stay. There are no shop or restaurant facilities for the campers, but that is what makes this place so special for us. You are surrounded by majestic mountain koppies that embraces the open grass plain with Gemsbok grazing stretching out to the red dunes of the Namib desert in the Western distance. Makes for excellent sunsets. Absolute peace in the Desert ! You would like to, like us, want to come back again and again.

We loved our stay at number two desert Lodge (Little Hunters Rest campsite.) Lots of space and silence and lovely shady trees. Everything is very well kept. Well with two nights so that you can enjoy the day pass you by in the desert.

This location is a gem. We camped here for 1 night only, but I could have spent longer. The camp sites are a good distance from each other for perfect peace and quiet. We took a walk, heading towards the hills/mountains in the evening, lovely. The sunset was dramatic over the red dunes in the distance. Words fail to truly reflect the wonderful "panoramic visteurs".

We stayed at the lodge in August for 2 nights. Torsten and his wife were charming hosts and made us very welcome. Communal dining was fun and the food excellent - Oryx stew - vg! Surrounding countryside so peaceful and stunning hills. Many walks available and we were encouraged to get out and explore. Our only gripe was that our bedroom was soooo cold - no provision for heating and the hot water was minimal - but then water is a scarce commodity in those parts.

We camped here for one night. Upon arriving we had a couple of beers at the lodge. We didn't bring any meat with us, expecting to buy meat at the lodge as many resorts have braai(BBQ) meat packs available. So the owner helped us out with a pack of Oryx minced meat, which we used to make mince and macaroni. Arriving at the campsite I was astonished by the beauty of the wide open grasslands filled with Camelthorn trees. We could pick any campsite. We set up camp, and enjoyed the best sunset views. If you love sunsets and being isolated from the world - then this is the place to be. We enjoyed our stay under the stars. We watched the sun goes down while having drinks and enjoying the view. The ablution block was a bit far away - especially at night time for my fiancee. You have to light your own donkey to provide warm water. The showers are very nice and you have flush toilets as well. All you need here!! There is no electrical points, so bring own lights/torches/camp lights. We saw a couple of wild horses in the distance while camping. Just be careful when camping here - the wind can really blow!!! Make sure all your tent pegs are thoroughly put in the ground. I had to secure our tent to my pickups bullbar for extra tie down points. The night we camped here we did not have much sleep. Thought our tent was going to blow away by the wind. When morning broke, the wind was gone and it was a lovely day. this is really one unique camping spot!!!
