Absolutely stunning! We enjoyed our stay and would definitely consider a revisit. The shop however is not as "fabulous" as the website states. Do not bargain on buying meat here and they only stock the basics. And if its very hot, make sure you bring enough ice as the ice machine struggles in the heat. The camping facilities however are...

Dear Althea, Thank you for the great rating and review. Glad you enjoyed the pool and camp facilities. We have frozen meat available at the shop and should you require something specific you can ask at the tills and we will try our best to organize what you should need.

What a beautiful and comfortable campsite! A real oasis in the dry landscape of Southern Namibia. Each campsite has its own bathroom and kitchen and is serviced everyday. The swimming pool is also great - in the Namibian heat!

The campsite was perfect. We slept in tents. Except for the wind that was blowing 100km per hour!, we enjoyed every minute. Next time we are going to stay for 3 or 4 nights, not only 2. From there you can visit Sesriem canyon, dune 45 - climb it to the top and Sossus vlei took photos of the dunes...

Just outside the park for easy access. Great pitch with water and electricity and a swimming pool. Campsite has a great desert backdrop although the remote pitches are a fair walk from the shop. The shop is well stocked particularly with cold beer and good wifi.

We stayed across the road, just inside the park. That way we could get in an hour earlier, and out an hour later. If you only could provide the same park access... your campsite looked wonderful! Own cabins with facilities for every single visitor, great!

Dear Rob, Thanks for the rating although you didn't stay with us. Unfortunately we are not a government institution and thus are restricted in giving the same access to the Park. Looking forward to welcome you to our individual facilities during your return to the Sossusvlei area. Best wishes, The Sossus Oasis Team

Every campsite was very good with its own ablution facilities and a covered terrace. No trees and rather dusty, but in a place of many tourists a good option to stay. Small pool and grass area. Shop with everything you need.

The terrain is very rocky and it''s very difficult to set up a tent. A lot better for those who have tents on the roof of their car. The rest was very good. Great bathrooms! Good location and great meals just across the road at the lodge!

This was definitely a nice place to stay and much cheaper than directly at the park. Unfortunately you can enter the Sossuvlei park from here later than from the other camping site. The camping site is not crowded and you have much space for your own. Unfortunately the toilets and showers were not okay. It was clean, but the doors...
