Where is it?

  • Adjacent to the Bruckaros mountain approximately 80 km north-north west of Keetmanshoop.

How do I get there?

  • On the main B1 road between Windhoek and Keetmanshoop turn onto the D 3901 gravel road (at Tses) to Berseba. After about 30 km a signpost saying 'Brukkaros' directs you to the right. From there it is another 8 km to the campsite.

Unfortunately we are not able to book community campsites as there are no reliable contact numbers or booking offices in places.
The only way to get a site is to arrange it on arrival at the campsite.
