Madisa Campsite

Located on the D2612 road towards Twyfelfontein, a very popular route. Each camping spot has beautiful views of the Gauntegab riverbed and rock formations. An ideal accommodation for the traveler who wishes to camp comfortably without compromising the experience of exclusivity in this vast and beautiful area of ​​Damaraland Namibia.

Madisa is a good base camp to explore from. There are very interesting sights in the area such as Tyfelfontein, Brandberg, the Petrified Forest and many more. These are good and easy to drive and after a full day of exploring what could be better than finishing with a dip in the pool and enjoying the accommodation under a blanket of stars.

At the foot of the spectacular granite cup is the bar and pool. From the top you look out on a self-built drinking trough for elephants.

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.
