go! Namibia - - TOP-20 KAMPPLEKKE MIRABIB, NAMIB-NAUKLUFT PARK -

At Mirabib, the grassy plains on the fringe of the Namib Desert roll out in all di­rec­tions around the rocky out­crop that gives the camp its name. The out­crop of­fers shel­ter for your tent should the wind pick up. In the early evening, bark­ing geckos gather to gos­sip – it’s the kind of place where you feel as if you’re part of the land­scape.

You won’t come here for the fa­cil­i­ties: Mirabib has no power or wa­ter, but there are slightly run-down pit toi­lets. Come here in a 4x4 be­cause some sec­tions of the road are thick sand.

You can also use Mirabib as a base to ex­plore the Kuiseb Val­ley – drive the D1983 past Homeb and Gob­a­beb through
