The camp appeals to those who want to connect with the earth, cultures and wildlife in a very up-close and personal way, mobile camps are just that, designed to be relatively easily moved every few days.
Sesriem Canyon has evolved through centuries of erosion by the Tsauchab River which has carved a narrow gorge about 1.5km long and 30m deep into the surrounding conglomerates, exposing the varying layers of sedimentation deposited over millions of years. The shaded cool depths of the canyon allow pools of water to gather during the rainy season and remain for much of the year round. These pools were a vital source of water for early settlers who drew water for their livestock by knotting six (SES) lengths of rawhide thongs (riems) together, hence the canyon and surrounding area became known as Sesriem.
Since these camps are mobile, there is a certain amount of compromise on the frills and add-ons that you might expect in a permanent lodge or camp, however, guests will go to sleep hearing only the silence of the desert and wake up to a chorus that announces the start of a new day.
The mobile camp is non-participatory and is fully serviced and equipped to ensure that guests are extremely comfortable. Good food and wine is an important part of your overall experience so the catering in camp is of a very high standard with delicious, wholesome meals prepared for each meal time using fresh produce and local delicacies where possible.
There are two options of tents, the first being large rectangular Meru tents (4m x 3m and 2.5m high) with built in groundsheets and mosquito screens on all doors and windows.
Dome tents (3m x 3m and 2.1 m high) with built in groundsheets and mosquito screens on all doors and windows.
Each of the tent options is equipped with solar lighting, bedside table, comfortable standard height camp beds and mattresses with normal bedding as well as an additional blanket and a hot water bottle for those chilly nights
Please note however that ablutions will be on a shared basis as we will need to make use of the campsite’s ablution facilities whilst here
