The beds were good The shower was also good I appreciate particulary the complet breakfest packet, as I leaved early. My only regret was to not can charge the mobile because of a bit long power interruption, due to the stormy weather.

We stayed in this Restcamp as a base to visit Sossusvlei since all the lodges close to Sossusvlei did not have any availability. The restcamp is 2 hours away by car but I would still opt for this restcamp if you do not have any other option. The restcamp is basic and clean. We opted for dinner and I can...

We booked our stay at Capricorn very spontaneous with no problems at all. Karsten made us a very warm welcome. He helped us with a lot of advices, provided a delicious dinner on his terrace and we had some nice conversation. If u look for a peaceful, down to earth and affordable place to stay - go there. Many thanks...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Capricorn Restcamp is situated next to the Naukluft Mountains making it an ideal stop-over en route from Windhoek to Sossusvlei or from the South to the coast. The four bungalows are all equipped with twin beds, own shower & toilet, warm water, terrace, fireplace (braai) and electrical lights. Parking places are close to the bungalows. Guests can settle and enjoy the view from the terrace of the bungalow and relax after a long day driving, they can also take a walk (botanical walk) and discover the numerous indigenous plants of the region. Here you find a variety of birds from the Namib Desert, Naukluft Mountains and from Central Namibia. We provide four camp sites with shadow netting, fireplace (braai) and benches/tables. The camp site has a communal toilet- and shower house. Breakfast, cold lunch and dinner are served at the terrace or in the dining room. ... more   less
