During the 18km drive from the main road to the camp we saw a greater variety of wildlife than in the rest of our two weeks in Namibia… mountain zebra, giraffe, black-faced ibex, springbok, kudu, oryx, ground squirrel and much more.
The morning walk is like a stroll through the bush with David Attenborough. One morning we saw a pair of leopards. Dennis Liebenberg founded and developed the Camp. He has a deep love of the area, and encyclopaedic knowledge of the 50,000 hectares under his care. He has lived here for 22 years and has trained all the staff. You could not be in better hands.
This is a desert camp in a pristine wilderness. It has solar-heated water in a bucket for a shower and beds in (comfortable) tents. The focus is on the glorious natural environment all around - the geology, flora and fauna. It’s not a super-luxury destination - no haute cuisine, no hairdryers, no frills. Internet access was not available during our stay. But despite the camp’s remoteness and harshness of the environment the quality of food and comfort they manage to provide is extraordinary.
We loved our stay here. The staff are outstanding, the location’s breathtaking. We saw more zebra, giraffe, kudu and springbok than you could imagine. We had a fascinating time.
