Oppi koppi restcamp

Oppi Koppi Restcamp is located in Kamanjab, a small settlement in the Kunene Region (also called Damaraland) of north-west Namibia. The name of the lodge means 'On a small hill' in the Afrikaans language, so it should come as no surprise to find this establishment perched on the side of a small koppie. Self-drive tourists often choose to stop in Kamanjab to re-fuel and rest before continuing on towards Damaraland, Kaokoland, Epupa Falls or the Skeleton Coast.

Although only a very small settlement (mostly comprised of school, petrol station a basic supermarket and several bottle stores) recently Kamanjab has become a more popular overnight destination due to the opening of Galton's Gate, the most western entrance to Etosha National Park. Only visitors with previously booked accommodation for Dolomite Camp can use this new gate into the park and Kamanjab is the nearest town. Some of the largest gatherings of animals in Etosha occur here, numbers unheard of in other sections of the park.

At Oppi Koppi cold beers and cool drinks are served at the very friendly bar while breakfast, lunch and dinners can be ordered from the restaurant. Lunch packs are available for day trippers and set menu's for a minimum of 10 diners can be arranged. Next to the main building is the swimming pool. There is safe parking and night security.

Accommodation is in 9 rooms or chalets. Overnight in:

Rooms: En-suite bathroom with shower and bath, or shower only. Tea/coffee station, a fan, mosquito repellent and an individual braai area are standard.

Chalets: Set outside of the main building, they are larger than the Double Rooms with similar facilities. Some of the chalets have a fridge and an in-room safe.

Languages spoken at Oppi Koppi include English, Afrikaans, German, Dutch and French.

Enjoy a real country welcome here before entering the park at the Galten Gate. Nice rooms, good and plentiful food and a well stocked bar.

Service is not good. But love the water hole in the camp, attracting many animal coming to drink water. Especially the last night, we saw 14 giraffes, 4 rinos and 1 elephant at the same time.


Oppi Koppi can be found on the C40 road on the outskirts of Kamanjab
