We arrived Betta after a hard day's driving. The donkey was already stoked and we had a lovely warm shower. The beds in the chalet was comfortable. The outdoor stoep kitchen to us was a little new and fortunately the night was cold, so the lack of a fridge was not a problem. Beautiful sunset and sunrise. The shop had everything a person could need, should you need something.
Each campsite has its own table, barbecue place, sink, lot of space and is sheltered from the shadow. Be aware that they only accept cash. The bathroom are clean and there is hot water. The area is calm.
First of all: this is a simple place, there is no Wifi and the hot water is heated with wood, therefore, there is no hot water in the morning. So why did I like this so much? It was very clean, the chalets are also nicely furnished. Contrary to what other people said there are power points available. Everything was very clean, the kitchen outside better equipped than some of the more expensive places where we stayed, even though there is only one gas flame. The staff were friendly, the chef even stayed longer to prepare burgers for us, which were really nice, particularly the home-made chips they came with. What I liked best though was the quiet. This really is in the middle of nowhere, there is the sky the stars and not much else here. Obviously it also helped that there were…
We were two couples travelling together and we had booked two chalets next to each other. On arrival we were initially given one chalet and one room in the house which was away from the chalets. The receptionist could not give an explanation as to why one couple was booked in a room and not a chalet. We refused to accept this arrangement and insisted on two chalets and she promptly gave us two chalets next to each other! I fail to understand why this was not done in the first place as they were not fully booked at all. There are no fridges in the room and the little shop also had no ice although they had a very large freezer.
A good spot to stay if you're en route to Sesriem coming from the South or if you're coming from Sesriem en route to Helmeringshausen or driving South. It's a lovely comfortable cottage with a nice veranda which has a partly enclosed seating area, counter with washing up sink and a supply of crockery, utensils, glasses etc. The units are spaced and give privacy. I saw a fuel station available but we didn't get any so not sure whether they had. The shop has a few things like tins, bread, meat, alcohol, drinks and wood but no fresh vegetables.
