Namibia's Campsites and Accommodation
Cederberg 4x4 tries to select safe campsites with adequate ablution facilities and, where possible, there is a lodge that offers a pub and restaurant.
As we travel so often, we will be adding to this page every now and again
.. Amanzi River Camp (Abiqua)
.. Obelix Guest Village - Luderitz
Previously known as Abiqua
If you're going to be camping, just 15 km from the border, on the Rosh Pinah Road, is one of our favourite campsites, namely Amanzi River Camp, previously Abiqua. Lovely shade trees, grass to the edge of the Orange River, power points, water points, two up-market ablution blocks with lovely hot water and a lapa with fully licensed pub. This is also the base camp of Amanzi Trails that offers 4 and 5 day canoe trips on the Orange River, now called the Gariep River. These trips are catered or self-catering.
You can enjoy camping or chalet accommodation at Klein Aus Vista, around 300 km from Amanzi (Abiqua). Just 1.5 km from The Desert Horse Inn, which you can see from the road, the campsite has everything you need, hot water and flush toilets. The Desert Horse Inn has a restaurant and a wooden deck for sundowners. If you don't want to camp, there are chalets as well. The 150 km road to Rosh Pinah meanders along the Gariep River - it's fascinating seeing so much water surrounded by desert.
Obelix Guest Village - Luderitz
We never camp in Luderitz because even though the evening can begin with not even a breeze blowing, later a howling gale-force wind can come up and flatten your tent. So, we always stay at Obelix where Norbit the owner will welcome you. The rooms are great and the large pub has seen many a social, fun-filled night. A delicious breakfast is included.
Just 50 km from Noordoewer at Norotshama River Resort there is a choice of luxury thatched chalets or floating bungalows. Riverside campsites equipped with individual barbeques, electricity and ablution facilities are available. Self catering is on offer or you can make use of our a la carte restaurant.
I would suggest this place if you do not want to camp as I was not impressed with the campsite. Amanzi (Abiqua) is much nicer for camping.
Epupa Falls - Kaokoland, Namibia
This is a stunning camp site. When we were there is was choc-a-bloc full but we still had hot showers and flush toilets. It's on the banks of the Cuneni River right at the Falls and with the wooden deck and pub for sundowners, well worth a visit.
Marienfluss Comunity Camp - Kaokoland
All the community camps in Kaokoland are wonderful. They are very rustic, but clean with water heated by "donkey" and flush toilets.
This camp is alongside a river with stunning mountains in the background.
Ombonde Open Sky Camp - Okahandja
The Lodge is called: Okahandja Country Hotel - On Voortrekker rd. & D2110
Location: S 21degr. 57'38.7"
The campsite is really great with everything you may need but if you do go into the town, please leave someone at your vehicle. Last year when we went into the town of Okahandja and parked just off the main road, our vehicle was broken into and a laptop, etc. was stolen. They simply bashed in the rear passenger window. It was a Windhoek vehicle that robbed us, so I don't think the town of Okahandja is the problem.
Puros Community Camp - Kaokoland
Another wonderful camp. Early morning three elephants came into camp, merrily munching on the foliage.
Khowarib Schlucht Community Camp - Kaokoland
Another great campsite. But, we didn't camp in the campsite that is up high overlooking the river. We went down to the river and it was stunning.
