“Unique night at this exceptional campsite.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2013 via mobile

Camping gets a new dimension especially then you are coming from Europe. You feel that you are the only guest surrounded by beautiful mountains and stars. We did a 2 hour walk on the campsite without guide.

Take a nice wine and BBQ with you and enjoy this unique place. We had spot 11a which gives a very romantic sunset.

“An amazing scenery”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2013

The Granite outcrops of the Gros and Klein Spitzkoppe offer one of the most dramatic scenery in Namibia, especially at sunrise or sunset when the rocks turn to the colou of fire. Like many places in Namibia, this too had beed 'tamed' a tad too much, with neat roads, paths and built camping spots, and a mandatory guide to visit the rock art sites.

“Private location, outstanding views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2013

A huge formation in the middle of the desert, you can see it from miles away but a visit to the site is definitely worth it, the camp sites are basic but dotted all around the site guarantees privacy, we only saw one other car the whole time we were there! The sites, while basic are well kept and clean. There are lots of smaller boulders and rocks to climb around and explore, and the sunset was amazing! There are communal showers to use at the enterance/exit which were warm and also well kept and clean. Would definitely recommend a visit!

“Best night sky ever”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2013

This is a great place to camp. It's primitive camping--pit type toilets, no water. The location and the spacious sites are among the best places we've ever camped around the world! The pure darkness at night makes the stars seem close enough to touch and, you can see clearly from just the star light. The entire scenery of the Spitzkoppes is fantastic. I wish we had stayed 2 nights.

“golden Snake”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2013

Spitzkoppe is the heaven for freestyle and rope climpers.
THis gigantic ingeneous granite out crop is the best attraction on the road from usakos to the coast. With the new management at the lodge it just added the thrill expwience to the visitors.
