This was our third stay at Camp Gecko. Every single stay has been amazing. Heidi and Rene are wonderful hosts and we very much enjoyed our New Year's Eve dinner with them. The eagle campsite is just awesome with an 'open plan' bathroom and stunning view. Rene is an excellent craftsman and manufactures amazing knives. Our son really enjoyed the...

Worn out beds, no waterpressure, broken and dirty bathroom equipment, broken pool, lousy food, no other facilities. Indeed, N$ 700 pppn (!). A complete waste of money, except for the view and the location.

Run by a Swiss woman. Basic camp with rustic, beautiful A frames with a proper toilet and shower. There is a brai spot as well and the views are stunning. At the top of the hill you can visit the 'bar' and enjoy the lovely sunset over the hills. A very charming camp with lovely hosts.

“Don't be expecting 5 star luxury hotel rooms, these are fantastic well equipped tents that offer you slightly more luxury than normal tents, the fact that we could have a hot shower and flush toilet we were very grateful. If you want a hot shower, I would recommend taking your own wood with, the wood supplied is just enough to make the water lukewarm if you like me and need a hot shower to wake up, then take your own wood for the donkey.”
