Khorixas rest camp

Khorixas Restcamp is an ideal base to visit the Burnt Mountain, Brandberg Mountain, Organ Pipes and Twyfelfontein. Self-drive tourists to Namibia can stopover here when travelling between Etosha, the Kunene region and Skeleton Coast Park as well.

The camp is nestled in the hills of Damaraland and provides a relaxing environment for travellers after a day's exploration or long drive. Rare and unusual stone formations, ancient rock engravings and strange geological wonders have for decades tempted geologists, tourists and the curious to the region.

Khorixas Rest Camp has the feeling of a camp that had it's heyday sometime in the 1980's - but still offers functional accommodation and good rates. Meals can be ordered from the 'a la carte' restaurant. The bar is equipped with satellite DSTV which offers the perfect opportunity to catch up on world news or the latest major sporting events. Locally made arts and crafts can be purchased from the curio shop. Valuables can be secured in the safe. Secure parking next to your accommodation provides the opportunity to unload and repack for your onward journey. Relax and unwind around the swimming pool, which offers respite from the hot afternoon sunshine.

Accommodation is in a total of 38 rooms. Some of the rooms are non-smoking.

Single Rooms: 10 rooms with a single bed, air-conditioning, en-suite bathroom with shower, table/mirror, built in cupboards and a tea/coffee station

Bush Chalets: 26 chalets with 2 x beds in each unit, en-suite bathroom with shower and air-conditioning. Most of the chalets are large and spacious with braai facilities. Others are smaller in size with a shared braai facility.

Family Chalets: Both of the Family Chalets have 2 bedrooms and a self-catering kitchen. They also have an en-suite bathroom with shower, air-conditioning, built-in cupboards, TV's with DSTV hotel package.

The small town of Khorixas is named after the Khori bush (Salvadora persica). Although Khorixas Rest Camp is not luxurious, it is clean, inexpensive and unpretentious.

Totally run-down place. WE had to move because of an ants-nest in a bedroom. Broken-chairs and Dirty Toilette in the restaurant.

Large ensuite self-catering accommodation. Hosts were friendly and helpful. Good breakfast. Recommend as stopover en route to Etosha.

The camp is very basic and the services are not so well. The position is ok for many attractions, but no more then one night; the second night must be suggested in brandberg

This camp site is the most basic one we have been, however it is clean and we enjoyed the buffet dinner very much because the chef over there is very special. It is easy to consider this place a connecting point where to stay only 1 night.

We liked our visit to Vingerklip which doesn't feature in your site or many other guides - we thought the scenery was amazing and there is a lodge in this park we would have used if we had known about it. But besides that, Khorixas staff were friendly.
