We stopped here on our way from Windhoek to Sossusvlei and we are sure glad we did. The room is basic and the extra blankets were appreciated on a cold fall night since there is no heat in the room. The treat part is the owner. He came from Berlin met his wife in Windhoek and started this rest camp. He is doing a great job. There are 4 self contained units on one side of his house and 4 campsites on the other side. His goal was to establish a reasonable place to stay in an area with mostly very expensive lodges. He has succeeded in achieving that goal. We called in advance and asked him to prepare dinner for us and he agreed. The self standing units are widely separated from each other with room for parking and an outside grill at each unit. Outside was a covered porch with a bench for 2. Inside were two single beds, a table with 2 chairs, a nightstand with lamp and a closet. The bathroom had a sink, a toilet and a shower. A solar unit on the roof made for very hot water and plenty of electricity for light and battery charging. Everything was spotless and the care that was put into making this place was quite evident. At dinner we learned a little about him, his mother (who was visiting from Berlin) and his son (who was visiting from Windhoek), and it made our stay here one of the highlights of our trip!
