Madisa campsite is popular with overlanders and sits within a boulder outcrop amidst the vast plains of Damaraland. The views from the top of the boulders are breath-taking. There is a small bar area and swimming pool (although when we were there the pool was not particularly enticing).

There is a dense concentration of pitches around the bar area, but the pick of the sites are the private pitches with private ablution blocks set separately and spaciously with views across the bush.

Madisa is a fairly rough and ready site set in stunning surroundings. They do have rooms (en suite safari tents) for those who aren't bringing their own camping equipment, but they are fairly basic.

The campsites have individual ablution facilities situated on stilts hidden in the tree tops. The braai facilities also double up as a heater (donkey system) for hot running water at each open air shower.

Madisa is also a fantastic place for star gazing, the nights are brilliantly clear. Each site has lights which are solar powered.

The "swimming pool" area and bar are tucked away in among the granite koppies providing a great setting. Most of the year, the pool is more of a drinking point for elephants and the corresponding mess doesn't make for a very appealing swimming pool.

Madisa Camp offers highly recommended game drives tracking the desert adapted elephant.

  • 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
