Desert Horse Campsite

Desert Horse Campsite in Klein-Aus Vista is a special campsite. As the name suggests, you can find wild desert horses here. These have been roaming the area for several generations. You have a chance of seeing them during your stay here. Go to the Garub water drinking site to improve your chances of spotting these beautiful animals. The Desert Horse Campsite also has a special location. It is situated where the desert and the dunes of the Namib Naukluft Park meet. This means you have an amazing ‘vista’ in Klein-Aus.

The camping pitches are found under enormous camelthorn trees that provide shade. The very special weaver nests can often be found in the trees. Each pitch has a tap with running water, a table with benches, a grill and a windscreen. The campsite itself has toilet blocks with hot showers and clean toilets, and you can recharge your devices at the reception. Barbecue packages can be obtained from the Desert-Inn reception, and you can have dinner at the restaurant upon reservation.

Desert Horse Campsite is a perfect base camp for exploring the southwestern corner of Namibia. The staff at the reception are happy to help you arrange activities such as hiking trails or mountain bike expeditions.

We would recommend Selfdrive4x4.com to our friends

We booked a last minute 17 day self drive trip through Namibia with this company and everything was just perfect. Contact with the company was very pleasant and they kept us posted with updates about the progress of our trip. Gps, maps, book and 12V equipment was sent to our home as soon as our trip was confirmed.

Price wise it was a great deal and everything in Namibia (car and layovers) were to our satisfaction. We would definitely book again with this company and we would recommend it to our friends.
