August 13th, 2020 Ermita de San Ambrosio

As all of us know Spain is the worst overlander country in Europe, we are super glad and proud we found this incredible spot next to the Ermita de San Ambrosio, which is an abandon monument. Perfect for cars, 2 and 4wd. Also tents as there is a flat green area behind the building. Enjoy and be clean!!! cheers!!

July 15th, 2020 CLEAN TAP WATER

Super free tap water! 2 bigs taps next to the street! you also got rubbish bins ans free clean toilets (no shower) in front!! useful!!:)

July 15th, 2020 Wild Cliff

Beautiful spot on an isolated cliff! Full view to the ocean and Eiceira town. You can set the tent perfectly or park the van. They are a lot of place and super private. Its about a big piece of land were locals walk the dog, but this place is all for u.

September 17th, 2018 Car wash!!

Fast and good service!! From 50 y can wash ur car!

September 15th, 2018 Quiver Tree Forest

Not special at all. Is just a private piece of land with this typical trees you can see everywhere in Namibia.. Regreat 100% to came here, and btw was also ridiculous expensive: 85pp. So we are talking about more than the entrance for Etosha NP or Sossusvlei.. Totally disappointed! Dont waist your time and money.. Only if u want to see an unhappy cheetah in a little cage next to the reception.

September 15th, 2018 Noordoewer, Namibia to Vioolsdrif, South Africa

Best easy border ever. Fast and smiles everywhere.

September 14th, 2018 Toshari lodge

Beautiful beautiful beautiful camping!! Three places available, each one with private toilet under the sky, kitchen and pitch! Also perfect grass for the tent! 160 pppn!! We spent the night before in Eldorado (closer to etosha and so more expensive) and we can say come to this one!! No point of comparison for the relation price quality!! We also enjoy the singing performance of the staff at the lobby!! Little swimming pool and wifi at the reception!!

September 14th, 2018 bastion farmyard

Cool camping!! Same as above. 140pppn. We checked before River Chalets and this looks better for us (are the same price btw)!! More privacy and nicer for sure!! Super big toilets!! Everything really clean!!

September 14th, 2018 Eldorado Camp

Camping ok. 170 pppn. Didn't like all those boards forbidden you to see for free the surroundings!! They charge 400 for a tour with animals like cheetah lions rhinos etc.. Those you can watch from the entrance but if you look for free you can be prosecute! Hahaha Better stay in Toshari Lodge, still close to Etosha and is super beautiful and peaceful place. Much more privacy and style for less price!!

September 13th, 2018 bad road

Terrible road to the hole. Actually all the roads are not easy for a 2wd :(and not action here though

September 12th, 2018 Omatozu safari lodge

Incredible camping, no just beautiful, but sick African feeling!! Did the walking trail and got an encounter with a leopard who warned me twice to back off as he just hunted an antelope! Extremely dangerous but beautiful experience!! Was at morning, around 8am! We also saw porkypine, honey butcher, secretary bird, warthogs, antelopes, etc!! 160pppn for camping in a luxury place (private cosy toilet, kitchen, big own area, pitches, power, potable water, wifi free at reception) in the middle of the game lodge. And still cheap!! Best camping in namibia so far and we are finishing our trip!!

September 10th, 2018 Swakopmund - Sophia Dale Base Camp

Cool camping with fences of bamboo! Comunal toilet with hot hot hot shower (in all over Namibia is a challenge fibd the right temperature hahaha), site 20 doesn't have electricity and water! Free wifi at reception. You can also buy beers (20N and so on) and wine (from 88N) at the restaurant in case is sunday and all liquors are closed! No windy no foggy! 130pppn! Nice staff!

September 9th, 2018 Weltevedre

Super nice camping with big private toilets! Beautiful hot shower!! 300 p2 people! Doesn't matter if you are just one. Need to pay 300. Brai table and privacy!! Internet is really fast (20 extra per day) and the staff at the restaurant are kind!! Was a crazy windy night so take care and set the wind lines!!

September 9th, 2018 good road condition

Enjoy 80km/h all you 2wd!!! Before Solitaire till Sesriem roads c27 and c19 are terrible!! We careful! Recommend 1.8gal for the tyres!!

September 8th, 2018 Entrance Gate Soussusvlei

Same above! Take care at the end of the pavef road, they asked us 170 pp one way and return for Big Daddy dune and deadvlei (they are together). So we consider it was a big scam!! Better go first to the little white container/office anw2wwwwwwd pay them. Also u can go by walking but so hoooot!!

September 7th, 2018 Betta Rest Camp Campsite

Nice place. Hard ground to set the tent, sandy, but shelter and cool installations. New price for camping: 121N pp per night. After 17 hot shower.

September 7th, 2018 Abandoned farm

Didn't stay! But checked the place and nowadays is quite dirty! And a couple of dead animals! Wouldn't sleep here, in my opinion!

September 7th, 2018 Route c27

Corrugated in sooo many parts!! Annoying for a 2wd! Take care!!

September 6th, 2018 Nice hide for 2wd

Excelent path perfectly doable with a 2wd!! The only one we found in the area. Is just a short drive from the main rout, on the right hand if you are going to the Canyon direction. U can not be so hide from the south (few cars passed by of course) but yes from the north. No ground for tent. Sleep in the car broooo!!! For free bitches!!

September 5th, 2018 Nakop border

Confused border too. Staff no so friendly. Polices are cool!! They checked the car, but no so much. No veggies no fruits allowed! They ask for the vehicle permit for Namibia/South Africa. More strict with forms than other borders in SA.

September 5th, 2018 Ariamsvlei

Terrible border!! Big mess and confused steps!! Pay attention to duration of your stay! Due they set exactly what you filled in the arrival form. If you don't have nothing to declare, after immigration and passport checks just go to the white container to pay the Cross border charge for the car (295 N for a sedan, can pay with rands), which document you must keep till the end of your visit. Didn't ask for the Namibia permit of our vehicle, but yes they did at the exit of SA (Nakop border).

September 4th, 2018 Drive in KOM -MA-WEER

Really useful spot! As the first comment, is not a camping yet but the owner is working on that!! He and the staff were highly kind and assisted us in everything we need to make us feel comfy and safe. They let us to use the toilets (super clean), and the wifi in his wife office, as there is not service yet. We set our tent under a shade and made a fire in the brai!! Stunning sky!! :) cold night!! You got a shop if u want to eat something. Staff looking after all night long. Thanks very much for the hospitality!! Good luck with the project!!

September 4th, 2018 Upington - Sakkie se Arkie

Like the rest of the comments! Super nice place! We think best option for the price and better than the rest of the guest house in the town (no hostels apparently). Toilets ok! Hot shower perfect!! 120ppn!! Brais, ducks and quit night!! Orange River next to u!! Enjooy before crossing to Namibia!!

September 3rd, 2018 Lesotho Border

Busy busy today! Maybe mondays or weekdays are like that. One queue for everybody. No checks of the car, not declared nothing and no inspections! Took us 1hr in total both borders from Lesotho to South Africa.

September 3rd, 2018 School Parking

Quiet place to spent the night inside the car. Really inside! Was freezing!!! My god!! Just couple of meters up from the main road you will find this buildings which we assumed is a school according to with traffic boards! There are also some trees on the back if you feel encouraged to set a tent!! F r e z z i n g!! And windy of course!! A blue big tank of water can be used too, probably potable! Nobody living here, no visitors, no problems, just cars passing by and stopping due speed bumps.

September 2nd, 2018 Route to Qachas Neck

Heavy internal route to the Border Pass "Qacha's Neck". Doable with 2wd but dirt and full of potholes! R56 is the best option of course, but as it is a longer way we tried this one.. Be careful!

September 1st, 2018 Lesoto feet

Incredible viewpoint to check the beginning of the border Lesoto, after the Sleeping Beuty Cave!! Entrance to the Ukhahlamba Drakensberg Park 40R pp. 2hs walk till here!! Nice streams with clean fresh water and stunning landscapes!!

August 31st, 2018 Parking Beach Ballito

Beautiful spot in front of the beach!! This is a perfect place to spent the night inside the car/caravan/motorhome. Specially after check the prices of accommodation. Locals chill here at the evening and then go away. Boards say don't drink not pets not parking etc but everybody is doing everything hahah. Fishers and pet walkers at morning too. Nobody bothered us. No guards. Amaizing sunrise, we saw whales and dolphins!!

August 31st, 2018 Khotso Horse Trails and Overland campsite

Super nice and cosy place!! Dont miss it!! 120 ppn in tent and 170 the dormis!! Wifi trekkings and super cute fire in the living room!! Amaizing place!! Kitchen and toilet clean!!

August 26th, 2018 Kruger View Backpackers

Nice hostel kind of expensive for us.. So we set the tent for 300 per 2ppl. Friendly hosts. So close to the border of Kruger. I think is the cheapest option in this town!! Excelent wifi!! Toilet not so cool. Simple!
