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!
