As a camper I enjoy a private bathroom, shower and kitchen which Sossus Oasis Camp Site offers. Stunning stars and sunsets / rises. Stay at camp sites 1-5 as they are away from the dust of the gravel road.

We stayed at this camping site to visit Sossusvlei the next day- each camping site has it's own hot shower, toilet, kitchen area and shade deck. Very clean and convenient and a lovely swimming pool to cool down.

I stayed here in April 2017 for 3 nights with few of my friends. Best camping site I have ever stayed at. Hot shower, clean toilet, spacious camping area, nearby shopping/petrol station. Perfect !! Highly recommended. definitely will go back.

Was not expecting the campsite to be so close to the road, was noisy and dusty. Also had some trouble pitching two tents in the area provided. The light in the bathroom area was not working and there was a problem getting the hot water to work in the shower. The wind was unpleasant so we found ourselves making a...

Dear Hilary, Thank you for your review. Our apologies that you found our campsite disappointing - We do have maintenance people on site and could have fixed the light immediately if you reported it to the shop - might have been an over-site of our cleaners to test it while they cleaned the campsite in the morning. There is quite...

Most of the reviews already mention what you can expect. Will add that the sites are well maintained and cleaned. Someone spent time thinking about what a camper would appreciate and got it spot on. Proximity to the reasonably well-stocked shop (for Namibia) at the garage is also very handy.Two detractions are (1) traffic noise around 5 am (end April)...

We could not secure a booking inside the Sesrium Camp. It is very difficult especially if its not booked months in advance. The advantage of staying inside the camp is that you can get to the dunes before others. Also Sunset and Sunrise can be viewed while at the dunes. Not the case if you stay outside. Nonetheless if this...

Private shower, toilet and kitchen basin at the campsites closest to the petrol station. Electrical point and lights. Basic but perfect for overnight or two nights camping. Clean swimming pool. When booking, ask to be furthest away from dusty main road. Enjoyed our stay.

A good place to stay for being the first at the Dunes. Large space for camping. May need better showers and toilette. But ok. Be careful if you go with 4x4 to the dunes. It is a little bit tricky. Decrease your tires pressure.
