How do I get there?
- this campsite is situated 20kms before the Pass, near the village of Otjihende, just off the main through-route from nearby Otjitanda. An absolutely stunning spot, the sites are built alongside a sandy river bed, offering privacy and seclusion in a beautiful natural setting.
The only way to get a site is to arrange it on arrival at the campsite.
