          We were alone in the camp (end of season). There was no friendly welcome. Food was just reasonable. Not clean; I was happy to have my sleeping bag with me. Old buildings. Only a fan in the rooms. One of our rooms had a bad...More

          Even though our guest always seem to enjoy themselves, the camp has certainly not improved since I visited the first time. Dinner was quite tasty but breakfast was just about a matter of slapping some bread on the table with boiled eggs. Not much effort...More

          This place is easy to find and to reach, even if you only have 2WD and no GPS. The camp is not pretty in the day light, but very charming and feels 100% authentic. It is placed right on the edge of the sand dunes...More
