Our second stay at Desert Backpackers. Great campsite to visit Swakopmund on foot and leave your truck safely behind. Owners are super friendly. Ablutions clean and hot. Wifi slow to average depending on the people using it. Ask for the campspot in the backyard and it gets less noisy. Prices 170NADpp. Prices drop if you stay longer.

Three to four shaded spots high enough for rooftoptents. The shared kitchen can be used to cook your meal. City center and ocean on walking distance.

N$510 for two adults and two children.

An inexpensive place to stand. We stayed here with our BigRig (7.8m) for 6 nights and the price was reduced from 170 to 150 N $. The internet is constant, but in the "Alte Brücke" it is significantly faster. The place is not a beauty, and a bit narrow. We had to go out backwards. In return, it is a good walking distance to town and to restaurants such as "Kücki's Pub", "Gabriele's Pizza", "The Tug" etc.

Awesome place.
1 night is 170 pp. If you stay longer the price drops. We ended up staying 6 nights and it was 120.
The owner are very very nice.
Showers are very good and hot. Clean.
Kitchen we'll equipped.
Place is close to the beach and all of the restaurants/ bars.
It's not quite even at night because you sleep next to the street , and you don't have views or anything but for us it was perfect.
Electricity as well.
Pay cash

After having checked the complete overpriced and unfriendly Tiger Reef Campsite we decided to have a look here. This was the best decision what we could make! The very friendly owner let us stay with our truck in the parling lot. The WiFi was fast. Beach and Gabrielle Pizza are in short walking distance Everything else like described before.

170pppn we find overpriced to sleep in your own rooftent. Just beside one of the mainroads. Noisy trucks passing even at midnight. Dogs bark at you while you come back and nobody cares about that. Southafrican owner.
Facilities are good.

Really nice place, stayed 2 days for a nice rest, not much to do in town. Kitchen, wifi, toilets are all nice, gated with electric fence.

Incredible clean kitchen for a backpacker !!

Very nice campsite. You have everything that you need: very well equipped kitchen, hot showers, braai spots, cozy TV room and GREEN grass. A lot of outdoor amenities so during the evening you can find your own place and feel pretty intimate. We parked our car with rooftop tent on the “beach” (sandy parking lot) between two palm trees- perfect spot! You can book adventure activities here as well. 320 ND per couple per night.

Very friendly people and all you need from some civilization but 1 night is more then enough. Camping is in the parking lot with some shade cover with the main road full of trucks throughout the night right next to it so not the best place to camp but wifi is fast and the vibes with other travelers are good! 160 N$ pppn camping but maybe rather take a dormbed N$220 or room N$450 to have a better sleep.
