Beautiful grass and shaded campsites. Helpful staff - there was no hot water in showers and we were offered a hot shower in a chalet.

The camping sites are nice and grass covered, but the ablution facilities are poor and insufficient. The noise from the township kept us awake till the early morning hours.

21 July 2014

The town was noisy, only one bathroom for 10 campsites (and then they have 16 people on two sites - imagine that) almost never hot water or some times not even had any water available. I have to give Albert thumbs up, he was great trying to sort out all the problems. The last straw was that they never amended the booking as requested, and still had to pay in!! We really expected more!

Nice garden, spacious and clean rooms

12 May 2014

We camped for two nights at iGowati. Reception staff were friendly enough when we checked in. Camping was fun, but the ablution facilities are a bit dodgy. One particular bathroom that was equipped with a single shower, wash basin and toilet was nice to use except that the toilet leaked all over the floor. Not so nice. Also a lot of noise from the locals partying 'till the early hours of the morning. No other issues on our part. It is great that some fire wood is supplied to the campers. One inconvenience was that after a day of touring to Twyfelfontein we came back to discover "Das Rollende Hotel" parked right in front of our campsite and there goes the privacy out the window. The rest of the campsite was vacant with nobody to bother. Why park right in front of a clearly occupied campsite? Maybe it's a culture thing. On a side note... Maybe someone should check how much water is wasted on sprinkling the grass. Someone would switch on the sprinklers early in the morning and late afternoon and just forget about it for hours. We turned off the water after the sprinklers were running for about two hours. Anyway, thanks for the experience! Wir zelteten für zwei Nächte im iGowati . Personal an der Rezeption war freundlich genug, wenn wir eingecheckt Camping hat Spaß gemacht , aber die Waschräume sind ein wenig abgenutzt . Eine besondere Badezimmer, das mit einer einzigen Dusche, Waschbecken und WC ausgestattet wurde, war nett zu benutzen , außer , dass die Toilette zugespielt über den ganzen Boden . Nicht so schön . Auch ein viel Lärm von den Einheimischen feiern " bis in die frühen Morgenstunden . Keine andere Fragen unsererseits. Es ist großartig , dass einige Feuerholz ist mit den Campern geliefert. Ein Nachteil war, dass nach einem Tag auf Tour nach Twyfelfontein kamen wir zurück zu entdecken "Das Rollende Hotel" parkte direkt vor unserem Campingplatz und es geht die Privatsphäre aus dem Fenster. Der Rest der Campingplatz leer war mit niemand zu stören. Warum Park direkt vor einem eindeutig belegt Campingplatz ? Vielleicht ist es eine Kultur Sache. Vielleicht sollte jemand überprüfen, wie viel Wasser auf das Gras Beregnung verschwendet. Jemand würde auf den Sprinklern in den frühen Morgen und späten Nachmittag zu wechseln und einfach vergessen für Stunden. Wir drehte das Wasser ab , nachdem die Sprinkler für etwa zwei Stunden liefen. Trotzdem, vielen Dank für die Erfahrung !
