“This our last overnight stop en route back to SA, ahead of the past weekend, I admit having had no expectations, whereas we were pleasantly surprised to find the place less crowded and therefore not a bad choice after all. Hot showers (ladies bathroom) were however an issue. ” - Mike Reeler, 2012/08/26
“Like most campsites close to a famous Namibian attractions, itâs expensive, crowded and with much too little ablution. But seeing a breathtaking full moon set over the canyon, followed by an even more incredible sunrise, makes it worth every penny, and more.” - Jan Amersfoort, 2008/09/01
