This was my second stay here. I really love it and will come back again and again. The location is stunning, the rooms are super comfortable. It’s magic! This is a great point to explore Sossusvlei. The pool area is great for relaxing after hiking the dunes. We ordered braai stuff for dinner. They had limited supplies to we got a few substitutions which was absolutely fine. It’s such a remote location it’s amazing they have anything.

Awesome desert camp experience in modern self-catering chalets, serviced by a reception with bar and pool area. Order braai goodies from the reception for delivery at 6pm each day - try the Oryx steaks!! - as an alternative to the buffet dinners at the Lodge 4km down the road.

On arrival we were greeted with a refreshment at the main lodge, and informed our chalet was already cleaned and available for an early check-in. This gave us an extra afternoon to explore the National Park, a mere 5min drive from the lodge. Fantastic bar & pool area to enjoy after climbing the Namib Dunes. Pre order your braai packs with delivery daily before 18:00. Overall a well run lodge after our disaster of a stay at a near by lodge! Will highly recommend, book in advance like we did! We will return with the Put Foot Rally next year.

We wanted to get away a bit just to clear our mind from all our anxiety and stress this past year has brought. Saw desert Quiver’s special that they are running and thought okay WOW let’s book this. Spoke to the booking agent ( whom we later found out sits in South Africa for some odd reason 😐🤷🏼‍♀️) She told us on mail it’s not necessary to book at all there wil be enough space for us at Desert Quiver. We drive all the way from Swakop arrive there at around 7 at night. The lady at reception says No there is no space at Desert Quiver and sends us to their other camp cause according to her it “looks the same”. We get to the other side and no it does not look like the pictures we saw as we had this idea in our head already. Just to check in took us about and hour and a half. We insisted to sleep at Desert Quiver ( then after insisting they miraculously have space for us again at Desert Quiver wow 🤦🏼‍♀️😐)as the booking agent specifically said there is space. Then this guy who helps us insists we pay upfront-this is after we wanted to book and pay online through the booking agent too but she advised us to pay everything on checkout. Now please keep in mind we had reached our swiping limit for the day ( filling up the car buying groceries for the trip etc) so after an hour and a half of a struggle just to get the keys for our camp I started to get really annoyed as we are tired and hungry. We arrived at the camp so late we could not even cook the food or make a braai. A beautiful evening wasted. Now guys this was a very bad experience for us service wise we were very unhappy. The place is beautiful but we will definitely not be returning. In these Corona times I feel you should cherish each guest but this was definitely not the case.

Dear Seanine, Thank you for the feedback. On the afternoon before arrival Mario contacted our reservations office stating that he is having problems with his card when making payment on our online booking platform and if we can make the booking and he will pay on arrival. Our policy is the same as most other accommodation establishments in Namibia that if full payment is not made prior to arrival, you are welcome to arrive as a walk-in guest to make a booking and payment onsite upon check in. We don’t allow payment on departure and this was never mentioned in the email conversation between Mario and our reservations consultant. We have 2 self-catering establishments with the exact same facilities, Desert Camp and Desert Quiver Camp and due to the impact of the pandemic on our industry we have to carefully manage occupation at both camps due to the fact that we are still forced to run on a low number of staff. Unknowing that your mind was set on Desert Quiver Camp our receptionist suggested Desert Camp on your arrival as we would ideally have an equal amount of guests at both establishments. When you returned and insisted you want to stay at Desert Quiver Camp our team made the booking immediately as we had other guests that were more flexible in regards to which camp they wish to reside in. Once again you experienced trouble with the card payment which is not of our doing. You were checked in by 19:18 within minutes from arrival with ample time to still enjoy a beautiful evening and braai should you have wished to. We do have a smooth online reservation system and successfully process the majority of our bookings this way – online bookings are confirmed instantly on the successful processing of the credit card provided. The fact that your credit card declined due to transaction limit reached was beyond our control and we tried our best to assist accordingly. We do cherish every guest in these difficult times and do apologize that you did not enjoy the experience and beauty of Desert Quiver Camp due to the check-in process. Best wishes, The Desert Quiver Camp Team

The staff were friendly and professional. Made us feel welcome and we felt comfortable to approach them for assistance, advise, etc. The pool/bar area is great!. Wifi. Drinks at the bar are ice-cold. The pool was refreshing. The view is amazing, especially at sunset. The rooms were clean and comfy. Appreciated the AC in the heat. Dig the outdoor kitchen and fridge. Plus the braai area. We felt there could have been more shade in the front kitchen area. We threw up a blanket to create more shade. Convenient that we could rent a kitchen kit with cooking utensils, cutlery, dishwashing liquid + sponge, etc. Location is perfect if you want to visit Sossusvlei, Deadvlei, Sesriem canyon, etc. Plus the little store at the Engen petrol station close by is well stocked. I definitely recommend this place.
