Desert quiver camp

Desert Quiver Camp is situated on a private reserve around 5km from the Sesriem Gate entrance to the Namib-Naukluft Park and the famous desert dunes at Sossusvlei. The clay pan known as Sossusvlei (the gathering place of water) is Namibia's main geographical drawcard. Huge red sand dunes dwarf the pan itself and the immediate desert surrounds come alive on rare occasions the Tsauchab River flows to Sossusvlei itself. Desert-adapted wildlife can survive, existing on sparse vegetation that pepper the dunes. Visitors to Namibia and Desert Quiver Camp marvel at the sheer size and beauty of the Sossusvlei region which includes the much-photographed Deadvlei, Hiddenvlei and the more secluded Nara Vlei.

Desert Quiver Camp is a new self-catering accommodation establishment in the area, it is part of the same group of lodges, and situated close to, the well established and very popular Desert Camp. The swimming pool provides welcome respite from the hot desert sunshine and overlooks both Elim Dune and the immediate grasslands. There are 2 communal bomas which can be booked in advance, both equipped with cooking and wash-up facilities, ideal for large groups who wish to dine outside together. The lodge offers a big-screen television in the bar where current news events and the latest major sporting events can be viewed. Coupons can be bought at reception for those who need a Wi-Fi connection and order forms for self-catering food are also availbale. There is a private chef on site who can prepare braaied (barbequed) meals on request. Alternatively the restaurant and facilities at the nearby Sossusvlei Lodge can be used although meals must be booked in advance.

Guests stay in 24 uniquely designed, stylish self-catering chalets. Each unit has an en-suite bathroom with a hand basin, toilet and shower. The large bedroom is equipped with twin beds, a fold-out sleeper couch accommodating 2 small children (under 12) and ample shelves and clothes hanging space. The small but well-appointed kitchenette has a 2-plate stove, 'under counter' fridge and a wash up area, opposite a seating and dining area for 4.

Great views of granite outcrops, the immediate environment and wandering wildlife can be enjoyed from the shaded verandah, braai and wooden bench. Private parking is available. To assist self-catering guests 'Utility Boxes' can be collected from the reception at Desert Quiver Camp. They are filled with a decent selection of cooking and eating utensils. Order fresh food and supplies here as well.

A maximum of 2 children under the age of 12 years can be accommodated free of charge on the fold-out sleeper couch if accompanying and sharing a room with 2 adults.

Brilliant...great staff. Freezing pool but great spot.. Immaculate room. So pleased we were her rather than Sossusvlei lodge (though we ate there and good food).

Maschwitz, Renate

close to the entrance of Sossusvlei; new bungalows with attractive design; have a braai in front of your house; order a breakfast basket before going to the dunes

Hermínio, Inês

Very good place to stay, however the Sossusvlei Lodge would have been better. Was unfortunate not to stay inside the park to be able to catch the sunrise and sunset at the dunes.

Dekkers, Gijs

Very beautiful lodge, close to the park entrance. Swimming pool was very nice after the hot days. Food in SOSSUSVLEI LODGE was also very nice. buffet but this time a very good one.

Smith, Andrea

lovely, but would have also been happy in the Sossusvlei lodge, as was originally proposed to us. I requested Desert Quiver thinking it would be less 'resorty' but the lodge was very nice too.

Goupil, Timothe

Constraint : dinner has to be taken a few kilometers away. Perhaps this should be mentioned as that little extra driving is a burdeN. Rooms are loft style, which is not perfect for friends traveling together.

Lynch, Robyn

Very, very nice. This accommodation still feels quite new, the staff were great, pool lovely and the self catering options terrific. We took the chance to brai on the two nights that we were here, it was very cheap and a nice change from eating out. Highly recomend
