“THE BEST place to stay for the dunes”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 February 2012

Without a doubt - this is the best place to stay if you are camping in Sesserim. We spent two nights at Sossus Oasis camp site just before Christmas - the location is absolutely spot on - right by the gates to the national park - this is really important as you want to be able to get into the park early to be at the dunes in time for sunrise. The campsite is set in a circluar design - there are approx 15 pitches - all nicely spaced from one another so noise isnt really an issue. Each pitch has it's own individual facilities - including solar shower, toilet, sink and braii facilities. It is certainly a no frills option - however if you are craving a cold gin and tonic there is no issue about going into one of the more exclusive lodges for a couple of hours in the afternoon when the sun is at its hottest. Couple of nice added touches - braii cleaned out every day whilst we were out - made dinner the next night much easier! The pool at the campsite is fantastic - we spent happy hours by the poolside - suprising anount of game come up to the grassy knoll to graze which was a nice added touch.
We really cant reccomend this place highly enough - great location, great value!

Stayed December 2011, travelled as a couple

Situated a couple of meters to the entrance of the park.Very comfortable with your own shower and toilet ,shaded slab, kitchenette and electricity.A sparkling pool is on the premices.Is within walking distance to the petrol station with a shop and internet cafe.This campsite is quite expensive but worth it.
