Whoa what a setting for a campsite! The scenery from the camp is absolutely stunning sitting on the borders of the desert with the surrounding mountains looming in the distance.

The owners are from Switzerland and are charming and knowledgable about the local area. We stopped here on account of the roadside (dirt road as so remote!) sign of hand made knifes. We were intrigued and thus stopped by to see them and the other artefacts the owner was selling. He was evidently passionate about the crafts and took great time to talk about how they were made/how materials were sourced etc.

The campsite is secluded from the main building and is extremely tranquil, all facilities are present and there is a restaurant on top of the hill.

Would definitely recommend a stay here!

Run by a Swiss woman. Basic camp with rustic, beautiful A frames with a proper toilet and shower. There is a brai spot as well and the views are stunning.
At the top of the hill you can visit the 'bar' and enjoy the lovely sunset over the hills.
A very charming camp with lovely hosts.
