Sesriem is a beautiful historical settlement that is found close to the towering Naukluft Mountains. It is usually used as a stopover spot or nightly camp before visitors continue through the “Sesriem Gate” and into the Namib Naukluft National park and then onto the popular Sossusvlei.
There are many accommodation options in the area, but the Sesriem Campsite is one of the most popular and for good reason. 24 campsites that are located under shady camel thorn trees and is a favourite campsite for those moving on to see the Sossusvlei dunes – as there is no camping there. The setting is absolutely stunning, and each campsite comes with a fireplace and a water tap. There is an ablution block with flush toilets and hot water showers. There is a swimming pool, a small thatched bar where guests can relax and drink ice-cold beers and cool drinks.
The petrol station and a small shop for beer and basic groceries are popular for guests stopping through on the way to the National Park. The Sesriem Canyon is also just a few kilometres away, and makes a lovely day trip. Formed by the year-round water source that is the Tsauchab River – the canyon is a great place to explore and enjoy the beautiful and unusual rock formations.
Due to its proximity to the Namib Naukluft National Park and Sossusvlei, the campsite is often busy and pre-booking is absolutely essential in order to ensure that you get a spot.
