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
