Just outside the Namib park on the way to Sestriem. Wonderful services, sleeping in tents, dining in the "manor" house and sundowners from a lovely terrace. Highly recomended. It was part of a package by "Travel Bug" (about 300USD for three days two nights) so the price of stay or food individually is not known.
Named after the colourful lizards found in the area.
Really nice, small camp (in terms of sites, not physical area) WITH SWIMMING POOL, fantastic "open roof" shower/bathroom facilities and excellent sunset views from the viewing deck over the Bar area. Pool table, restaurant area (probably need to book in advance)
Also includes two beautiful staffie dogs, one which is crazy about swimming in the pool. Kids will LOVE him!
Oh yes, and the campsite facilities are also pretty good - electricity, water, sink and dustbin. What more could you ask for?
Very well located about an hour's drive from Sesriem, and not far from Solitaire where you can stock up on souvenirs, food, drinks and petrol.
The Sinclair Guest Farm is located in the middle of a wide Plateau.
Around the house it is quite green, but elseif the Plateau is filled with yellow gras that moves with the gentle wind.
The food you get for Dinner and Breakfast is almost completely self made. The only exception I remeber, was the cheese (imported from the EU). The rest: saussages, bread, butter, marmelade, the meat etc does all come from the Farm.
On the Farm there is an old Copper Mine. It is a must see. Go there and have a look at the old equipment and the blue-green stones. Try to find a nice one to take with you (just remember there is a weight limitation on the baggage you are taking into the airplane :-)
The Mine would still have Copper, but the effort to bring the Stone somewhere is too high and wouldn?t pay out. So the companies gave it up.
The view from the mine when the sun goes down is so beautiful (see picture).
and yes: that is a Quivertree you see.
I am not sure under what Cathegorie this goes. It may be best, if I describe it:
Camp Mwisho contains 4 Tent-houses. 3 are close together, one -the"honeymoon-suite" is a little on the side.
The tents are built on a wooden platform and stay all year. in it you have a real double-bed with all comfort and out on the back-side a real toilet and shower. These are inside a bamboo-fence but right adjacent.
Luxus in tents. Never had that before.
The view is wonderful. All you can see is pure desert. Wide dry land. Wild birds, antelopes, etc.
Dinner is in the main building where the owners live.
The food was excellent, I would give them five stars for the cooking and for beeing so friendly.
Lunch, Dinner and Sunset-Drive with Sundowner inclusive.
By the way: if you speak french: they are from Belgia. They were in Zimbabwe until they had to leave. Now they are here and had that idea with ballooning in the desert (see must-do tip).
