I rated this 9/10 in my TR and will give it the full Monty of a five according to TA's rating system.

Green grass all around, right next to (or in?) the Namib desert! Each campsite has its own ablution facilities with a braai, electricity , a work surface and dishwashing sink! This means privacy and a short walk to the bathroom!Great facilities and our top camping site of the trip. Stands are kept clean every day and the grass on unused stands is watered daily. Everything points to management that cares about their facilities and their guests.

Will definately stay here when we return.

Room Tip: Try and get one of the corner sites, we had no 31 and had no neighbours on our doorstep.

We spent three weeks camping in Namibia and Botswana and this is the best by far. It is actually the best we have ever come across in our travels in Southern Africa. Each site has it's own ablution facility, Clean, modern, spacious. It's like en-suite camping. The area is beautifully grassed with a built in Braai (BBQ), work surface, washing up area with hot and cold water,electrical lighting, power point, a safe in the bathroom and even your own clothes drying rack. the staff are great and most helpfull. it is a five minute walk (about 1Km) into town. Great little town, like a little part of Germany. Friends stayed in a chalet which was up to the same brilliant standard. I would highly recommend this resort.

Weather was harsh, stayed at campsite, breakfast was very nice, location excellent. Amenities basic, but probably exactly as necessary. First campsite experience, so cant be a good judge. Would prefer chalet at any given moment :-)

We stayed 5 nights here while getting repairs done to our truck, the facilities are spotless and cannot be faulted.
Having individual ablutions per campsite made a longer stay easier, being close to the town centre and facilities was useful.
The only downside to our stay was the loss of items in the laundry service.

We have visited Alte Brucke a few times and were never dissapointed. The staff are super helpful and can book a table at a local restaurant without even consulting a telephone directory. Laundry facilities are available too.

We have stayed in the self catering apartments and well as the camp sites. Standards are high throughout.

Will stay there again in the future.

Alte Brucke is located at the edge of Swakopmund, but close to restaurants, beach and bar on the beach. The place has fantastic grassy camping, each site has own "kitchenette" (sink, braai and enough space to put your utensils), private shower and toilet.
The area is very clean and well maintained, nice restaurant and friendly staff.

We stayed in a 1 bedroom unit here for 3 nights. It was great because we cook a few meals instead of going out. Breakfast is included in the nightly rate, it is ample and nice. The service here was great, missing a towel, they turned up with it straight away. The reception area is very helpful with a dedicated staff member to tourist bookings. Very well situated, close to town. The only down sides, they don't put iron's, hair dryers or TV remotes in the rooms due to theft, but you can get them from reception. You also have to buy tea towels and clothes from the reception, not provided. The WIFI is good and not expensive. We also had washing done here, back within the day and ok priced.
