Visited for one night on a trip through the area. Hostess was friendly and made us welcome. Great porcupine viewing in the evening the obvious highlight. The camp relies on the porcupines though as other than that the place is functional with a real budget feel. Could do more with birds perhaps providing food and water for them throughout the...

This place makes a nice stop over on your way to/from the north of Namibia. Not far off the main gravel road but out of Kamanjab - stunning sunset views from the top of the hill, and the porcupines are amazing, literally coming from far and wide (all completely wild) every night. Katrin cooks very good food and dinner is...

We decided to stay here because we thought our kids would enjoy seeing the porcupines.We never realised that staying at the camp did NOT guarantee seeing the porcupines, Everyone had to pay R70 p.p., kids as well. Very expensive. The campsites however were lovely. We loved the fact that you feel completely alone in the bush, unaware of any other...

We were 2 cars camping here for a night and were totally alone. Dinner was lovely roast eland and the porcupines coming for their fruit dinner was a real treat (but I think the $70 pp charge to see them is a bit silly). The campsite was fine. The showers and toilets were clean and lovely open air ( you...

We stayed in a permanent tent as part of an overland tour and was impressed with the quality of the campsite. Although there was no electricity, the moonlight was very bright and the outdoor showers and toilets were fantastic. The showers were very hot and the toilets were clean and flushed well! Our tent was warm, comfortable and there was...

I enjoyed this camp so very much. Run by a German woman and her daughter who are experts on porcupines. I saw several and even hand fed one. That was a unique experience. Also they have ostriches which you can see up close, if they don't snap at you. At night we looked for barn owls in the surrounding trees....

We stayed in a 2,5x2,5m tent near the shared facilities. All of this were okay: working and clean. The tent were small with two single beds - and a small table between, but ok for one night. The porcupines were amazing. We saw them 1/2 hour after the sunset being fed in front of the main building. Do not miss...

Been to this camp twice, loved it the first time so came back for more. Its run by a Namibian/German mother/daughter team who love animals. They can provide dinner for you and at 19:00 every evening porcupines from the area come to their house which is an amazing experience. The hosts also play guitar for you and welcome you into...
