go! Namibia - - TOP-20 KAMPPLEKKE GONDWANA CANYON ROADHOUSE, RIVER -

Right be­hind the Canyon Road­house, with its old Ford and Chevy trucks, you’ll find a camp­site next to a dry riverbed. Each stand has lots of shade pro­vided by camel thorn trees, a power point and a braai area. The ablu­tion fa­cil­i­ties are built from stone and are well main­tained.

You’ll be tempted to re­lax at your stand, but the Fish River Canyon is just around the cor­ner. Drive the 25 km to the canyon early in the morn­ing and have a cup of coffee at the Hobas view­point at first light – it’s the best time for pho­tos.

Rates: Camp­ing R160 per per­son (max 20 peo­ple per stand). Dou­ble room R1 099 per per­son (break­fast in­cluded). Dis­counts avail­able if you have a Gond­wana Card ( gond­wana-card.com). Where? Next to the C37, 15 km north-east of Hobas. GPS: S27.52431 E17.81461 Con­tact: 00 264 61 427 200; gond­wana-col­lec­tion.com
