NAMIB-NAUK­LUFT NA­TIONAL PARK

go! Namibia - - ACCOMMODATION -

Sev­eral camp­sites

Th­ese sites are all in­side the north­ern part of the park – in other words, the desert flats you drive through via the C14, C28 or D1982 as you ap­proach Walvis or Swakop from the in­te­rior. Many peo­ple rush through this ap­par­ently bor­ing land­scape to get to the sea, but this is a mis­take. Turn off and slow down: Soon you’ll see an­i­mals, and the wilder­ness camp­sites can eas­ily be­come a high­light of your Namib­ian trip. Though you can reach some of the sites in a 4x2, it’s best to drive a 4x4 in the park. Fa­cil­i­ties at the camp­sites – ex­cept for long drops – are nonex­is­tent. Bring your own wa­ter, and take your refuse with you when you leave. Buy a per­mit at the Min­istry of En­vi­ron­ment & Tourism (MET) of­fice in Swakop­mund. Camp­ing R80 per group of up to four peo­ple, R90 per night for more than four. Park fee R30 p.p. per day; R10 per ve­hi­cle per day.
