“Absolutely amazing!”
Reviewed July 16, 2013 via mobile

Absolutely amazing, enormous, quiet and impressive campsite, even if you've seen much of the world. The pitches lie scattered over a large area between the mountains of Spitzkoppe and the Pontoks. Starry, starry sky at night. Completely back to nature, peace and quiet, with your neighbours at a great distance. Every site has an open air toilet, which is cleaned daily. A few clean outdoor showers at the reception. Restaurant serves simple and basic dinner and lunch. Guided tour available to see rock paintings. Friendly and motivated staff, incompetent management (doesn't answer mails concerning reservations for weeks, can't track the payments we made in advance, didn't report our lost item (on site) to the people at the reception). All together fantastic campsite for those who appreciate nature and quietness.

I believe this may be the nicest campsite in Namibia! The location is incredible and it is just wonderful to enjoy the sunset at this place. Showers are at the entrance only and bush toilets are simple (yet clean!), but it is a fabulous experience which sums up all the beauty of Namibia! It was a little pricy, though.

Room Tip: There are many beautiful campsites which are spread around Spitzkoppe. They are all different, but l...

Spitzkoppe will take your breath away! We spent one night at the campsite at the foot of the giant rocks but wish we could have spent more. The sites are basic, but we found them clean and peaceful with no other campers to be seen. Each site has a braai place and is within close walking distance to a simple outdoor loo. The remote beauty makes this a must-visit. Just make sure you bring a torch!

Room Tip: We have no idea where we camped as the map didn't seem to correspond with where we were going bu...

We stayed at this camp site in September 2011.
We still want to review it because we were a bit surprised upon arrival and not much info is available about this camp site.

The camp site is easy to find, just follow the signs Spitzkoppe, the Spitzkoppe is the camp site. Plenty of spaces available, booking is not needed.
The camp site is very basic: no electricity, no ablution blocks (the toilet is a hole in the floor with a seat) and no running water at all. Be prepared for this and take all the water you need for cooking, washing, dishes, drinking etc... .
The site is regularly cleaned but we found a few pee (and poo) corners by people that didn't feel like going to the provided 'toilet' which was clean.

That being said, it was also one of the most beautiful camp sites where we stayed! The scenery is stunning and as the sun sets and the dassies come out you can watch them play on golden rocks.
Bushmen's paradise is here too displaying rock art of the San. However, the paintings were damaged by time and unfortunately vandals. Pretty climb though! We got a map and got lost with it...several times, don't worry you'll get there whilst circling around the site!

In all in all, we recommend this camp site bearing in mind the limited facilities.
