We used the chalets for over night accommodation between Amanzi and Thauchab. What a pleasant stay. The chalets were very neat and equipped with everything needed.The surrounding area and mountains are one of the most beautiful sights we have seen. During sunset we could not stop taking pictures.The morning we left (it was my sons birthday) Elmarie made our stay extra special by giving us homemade cupcakes to celebrate Henco's birthday!

Arriving from Noordoewer and Keetmanshoop camping sites where there were plenty of shade but still very hot I expected this open campsite on the Neisip planes to be extremely hot but was happily surprised to find it comfortable with a nice breeze coming in from the Luderitz side but not cold or too windy at all. The modern ablution is neat and well kept. The hosts are friendly and very accommodating. Sunsets are beautiful and generally its a peaceful place to be.
