In this remote world of extremes, you discover the tiny jewel that is Agama River Camp, deriving its name from the first living creature to be seen when your hosts first set foot here - a brightly coloured lizard which will often be seen around the camp in both animal and art forms. It seemed fitting to indulge this inquisitive reptile in the name sake.
Since that first step, Jonathan and Monique Leach have worked hard to build up the campsites which include some unusual features. More recently they have added a number of rustic style chalets, incorporating touches of luxury alongside practicality, plus the option to sleep under the stars, or stargaze if you're entranced by the night-sky. The campsites are along the lower dieprevier river course in the shade of large acacia trees, while the chalets all stand well separated from each other, on the upper banks.
Mountain Camp is an additional exclusive campsite about 6 km off the road at the foot of the Naukluft mountains.
All Guests are welcome to enjoy the facilities of the central reception area, including our friendly Restaurant, the cosy bar, the cool swimming pool and the large viewing platform on top of the main building.
Most visitors utilize our facilities as an overnight access point to Sossusvlei and the Namib Naukluft hiking trails. We also offer self guided walks into the mountains. Pre-arranged meals for groups, events and / or individuals as well as breakfast packs are available. For those who don’t have camping equipment we will provide tents, bedding, crockery and cutlery for an additional fee. We do also supply a limited amount of firewood but not ice. We are connected to the main grid (Nampower) so our chalets and restaurant have a reliable power supply.
As the campsite and chalets are on a small personalised scale: a swimming pool, sunset deck and fully licenced bar are available to all the residents.All meals should be pre-booked as our menus are pre-set.
