We stayed in a variety of campsites, ranging from very comfortable to very basic.
Pofadder - Klein Plasie
We booked a room, but they have 2 bedroom units available too. The rooms are comfortable, 2 beds, kettle and a bathroom. No kitchen facilities, but as we ate at the Pofadder Hotel we didnt need any. Watch for mossies, they are big and they come hungry!
Spreetshoogte - Namib Grens
Very nice campsite, highly recommended. The tents makes life a lot easier.
Swakopmund - Municipal Camp
We stayed in a 1 bedroom bungalow. Basic facilities, but we only needed a bed and lock-up facilities for 2 nights.
Erongo Mountains - Ameib Ranch
Fantastic campsite. Cement slabs to pitch your tent on, and each campsite has its own "picnic table" . There is a pool and you can have meals in a very nice lapa-restaurant and they have a bar! Also bungalows available.
Aba Huab - Very basic, with grimey shower stalls and toilets. Camp site is clean and tidy though. if they clean out the showers it will be a nice place. Bar and ice available. The local ladies like to lie on the pool tables after dark, and there was much spinning of tyres and loud music late at night from the locals. . Aabadi - A step up from Aba Huab. Bar but no ice.
Warm Quelle - Kowarib Lodge Campsite
Very nice campsite. Bathrooms are fantastic. Electricity is available at each site.
Puros - Puros Campsite
Bit dusty, and the facilities are pretty bush, but not too bad. Big trees, lots of shade.
Opuwo - Mopani Tented Camp
Cheap (well relatively) lodge accommodation. Good food, friendly staff, tents are neat and tidy.
Epupa Falls - Omarunga Lodge
Campsite very clean, the whole setting is just idyllic. There is a pool, and I think Mark mentioned something about a bar...
Ruacana - Eha Lodge Campsite
Grass under trees. A new experience for us. Nice, but not fantastic
Okahandja - Ombo Rest Camp
Small bungalow with 2 beds and a bathroom. Clean and tidy. We had dinner at the restaurant, the food was good value for money.
Noordoewer - Noordoewer Gastehuis
Just a room, double bed and bathroom. For a quick night's stay this is not too bad. They serve meals, and we had breakfast there.
