The Spitzkoppe campsites are run by the local community and are very reasonably priced.
The campsites are situated amongst huge granite boulders and mountains and are very secluded. There is very little piped water in the reserve and only a few of the campsites have toilets (longdrop!). you will need to bring all of your water supplies with you.
If you like bouldering or rock climbing then you will find lots to do here. There are also some sites where you can climb up into the mountains with the aid of a chain ladder to see bushman paintings.
As part of Namibias arid desert area, Spitzkoppe is stunning. Sandstone abounds and is all around you, the whole mountain is made of sandstone and is so beautiful.
What do I really need to say about the sunset?
Just check out the piccies! It was amazing........
As already said: no toilets here at the Spitzkoppe Rest Camp.
So what to do?
This is the right procedure if you have to go:
Take with you:
a shovel: so you can make a hole
a flash-light : when its night.
toilet paper - no, you will not find any leaves.
a lighter - to burn the toilet paper ( burying it is no good, since it is so dry, it will not decompose).
And remember: there are quite a lot of snakes (and scorpions?) around here. In a recent documentation on TV they have even shown a black mamba here.
(Brrrr... and I was out in the night there without flashlight and no good shoes.... but I was lucky)
