We can't say anything about the rooms or the campsite as we only came as day visitors to walk up to the Phillips Cave and to see the rocks at Bulls Party. We were greated friendly and the owner explained the map and advised what we could do in the available time. We hiked up to Phillips Cave. Yes, the... More

A bit hesitant after reading some reviews, however on arrival we were pleasantly surprised. New owners had obviously made some changes as we didn't see (or smell) 1 cat and we found the amenities tidy and clean. A lovely cool pool for a dip was a added bonus, and we found the food served under the huge thatched roof outdoor... More

We recently spent 2 nights in the campsite and were somewhat wary on arrival as our host at Omaruru had warned us that other campers who had stayed there said it was terrible and smelt of cat pee and that the pool was green and slimy. We almost looked for other accommodation but decided to try it out first. What... More

Rating 7/10. This is where we upgraded from camping to a chalet on the spur of the moment. Ameib has been recently taken over by Sigrid and she seems to be trying hard to get everything in great shape again.. Nice clean accommodation with showers and shared dishwashing facilities and great breakfast the next morning. All the buildings are solid... More

We had Room #1, clean and big, good hot shower, nice porch in front to sit out and relax, lots of closet space and hooks for hanging day packs. Food was good and plentiful, countryside is quite spectacular and the hiking was excellent. We had a open-car drive to several rock art sites and if you like San painted sites,... More

This was quite simply one of the most incredible places that i went to in Namibia. think Matopo NP in Zim and then multiply it by 10, its astounding. a real jewel and one that is underrated and consequently a great pleasure to visit. Forget Cape Cross or the seal colony come straight here and spend the evening. You will... More

Had an awesome stay here in October. The owners are very pleasant, speaking several languages. The rooms are really nice and the pool was great on the hot day we were there. The area is great for hiking and rock climbing and it has a lot of wildlife to be viewed. Great home cooked, family style meals are served in... More

The only reason to go to Ameib is the indeed stunning scenery with a lot of hiking opportunities. Everything else made us want to run for it: the outdated ranch and rooms, the suppressed and depressed employees, the reception area that smelled horribly from the 50+ cats straying around and the food which was a deadly combination of German cuisine...

I visited here with two other girl friends in April 2009. I always meant to write a review for it but never got around it it until now. The campsite is fab - small pool with red rock backdrop, braii facilities and guest house nearby if you want a beer or two. Very safe and lovely walks to the rock... More
