Overview

Sesriem is the National Parks campsite on the edge of the oldest desert in the world. Here you can set up camp underneath one of the shady camelthorn acacia trees and relax by the pool during the heat of the day. You may like to visit Sesriem Canyon and then walk or drive to Elim dune to watch the sunset, you can climb part of the way up the dune for a really stunning view across the desert. The camp has a small shop for supplies, petrol pumps and a bar.

If you would like to drive yourself into the dunes, you can wake early and drive onwards towards Sossusvlei, around 70km from the Park entrance. The entrance opens at sunrise and this is the best time of day to see the dunes, the opening and closing times will be indicated when you check in at reception. You will need to pay National Park entry fees of N$80 per adult & $10 per vehicle per day, children under 16 are free of charge. The last section of the road into Sossusvlei is 4x4 area only and you can either leave your vehicle at the car park and proceed either on foot (a beautiful walk), or take the shuttle which usually runs between here and Sossusvlei which is 5km away. The shuttle costs approximately N$130 per person each way. The desert can be extremely hot in the middle of the day, so please remember plenty of water, a hat and good walking shoes! Enjoy the amazing scenery of the desert, and maybe take a short walk to Deadvlei, a bizarre collection of ancient camelthorn trees, or climb the nearby dunes. Return to Sesriem and perhaps take a look at Sesriem Canyon before returning to the camp.

The twenty four Sesriem campsites are set underneath shady camelthorn trees, close to the swimming pool, restaurant, shop and Park entrance gates. Enjoy the convenience of being at the front of the early morning queue to enter the park and view the magnificent dunes for sunrise! Each campsite accommodates a maximum of eight people.

  • Dear Lisa. On behalf of the three generations of the Rowland family. Thank you, so much, for organising our wonderful holiday to Botswana and the Victoria Falls. The trip of a lifetime. The week mobile camping in the bush, with our guide Nandos and his crew was a fantastic adventure. How they manage to cook such wonderful food on an open fire is amazing. The sites were constantly visited by monkeys and once by elephants. We were even lucky enough to see two packs of wild dogs, once with a kill. Waterberry Lodge on the Zambezi River is a wonderfully tranquil place. Ideal to relax after the adventures of our safari and visiting Victoria Falls. Very many thanks once again
