The track between 'Ugab Save the Rhino Trust Camp' and Twyfelfontein is very remote. It is not completely deserted, as tourers are using it everyday, so in the case of a breakdown help will come soon, but just make sure you have sufficient water. Do not go astray and explore side tracks. Use a good GPS with a track on it. (Nov-14).

The tracks to Damaraland Camp (Wilderness Safaris), is very remote! (Nov-14).

A traveller reported travelling from this camp to Twyfelfontein in 2014 and 2015. On both occasions there were very very few animals. This is a nice route, but this used to be a very rich area for game viewing. Now there is virtually nothing left due to 'economic benefits for the locals out of game'. There are conservancies involved in trying to stop this. (July 2015).

“Best visited in the winter, the camping spots do not have a lot of shade.” - David Smith, 2009/01/17

“Probably the prettiest campsite we’ve ever visited. You can stay under wood fenced tree’s, cosy and private. The showers are awesome, one is constructed above a giant flat stone and nicely fenced, overlooking the river bed. With streaming hot water. Sometimes a bit to hot. The canyon itself is worth a visit too, an oases in the desert, and there is plenty of game.” - Jan Amersfoort, 2008/09/01
