A truly great experience. Fantastic campsite with a knowlegeable and very nice manager and guide, Stefanus. He knows everything about animals and plants in the reserve. We saw elephants, buffalo, hippo and many sort of antilope. Visit this place!

This is a wonderful place to stay. Clean, tidy, good amounts of running hot and cold water and incredible views over the surrounding plains. We are a family of 5 [with 3 teenage sons] and camped here for a couple of nights recently. We were warmly welcomed by Stefanis, who has recently taken over the management of the camp and on arrival we booked onto a walking tour and a driving game drive, both taken by Stefanis the next day. His knowledge and passion for the area and its wildlife and forna was very impressive - and we left the area feeling as if we learnt so much - even the boys were well engaged [unusually!]. We would strongly recommend this camp and to visit this extraordinary part of Namibia. The only amendment I could offer would be better signage into the camp [4x4 only] but I understand that this is already being prepared. Highly recommend.

We stayed two nights and really enjoyed the remoteness of the camp combined with the private facilities. The manager, who I think is quite new, did a really interesting walking safari and was friendly. I'd certainly stay here again and it's an unexplored part of Caprivi which many drive past via the B8.

After seeing mixed reviews for Livingstone’s Camp, I had some hesitation about booking. No need. We stayed for three fabulous nights in early July of 2023. Fabulous because the camp is under new management, Stefanus Van Zyl, deeply knowledgeable about the bush and a capable property manager. The private ablutions were well kept with ample solar electricity and gas hot water. After some mixed results with donkeys in other places, the gas hot water especially tickled our fancy. The site edges a vast reed marsh amidst an unfenced natural ecosystem where anything could wander in and does. Stefanus led us on a walking safari and he’s as good a teacher as he is naturalist. Better yet, he has a good vision for the future of the Camp, and I expect an already excellent experience will get better and better in the coming years. If you’re hesitating to book, don’t. You’ll be glad you did. We definitely are.

The sites are beautifully laid out and plenty of shade. Water and electricity is provided and the shower and toilet works well. We felt that the pictures were taken in 2018 and that some TLC was called for. The place is somewhat run down and requires some small repairs and a coat of paint. A little cleaning of the porcelain sinks in the kitchen and bathroom areas would be an expectation at this price level. The braai was impossible and a simple square grid would suffice. At the price charged a daily clean of the braai and ablution would have been nice.On the bright side we had a badger visit us during the night which was a rare siting. It would be better to visit when the water is in flood plain , but not essential.

Fantastic and perfect. Camping in pure African surroundings where you hear the lions roar at night. The campsite has a clean and well maintained kitchen and ablution. We liked it a lot and our little girls (7yo and 3yo) had a blast. The new manager is really nice, and we are sure he will make the place more phenomonal!

We've visited Livingstone's Camp from Windhoek a couple of times in the last two years. The campsites are all stunning, with views of the wetland in front of the camp. We visited once in winter when it was dry and cold and there was lots of wildlife around. Herds of elephants, lions calling near the camp. It's a good time to visit if you want to see lots of game. Then we visited in December after the rains and it was equally wonderful, lots of water in front of the camp with hippos. Birdlife around that time is unlike anywhere in Namibia. The campsites were upgraded before our second trip and it shows. My wife loved the bathroom facilities. There is an excellent young new manager who is great! We will be back again later this year!

Really nice campsites - large, shady and have good facilities with thatched area including a sink and lots of seating/ places to put food boxes etc, as well as a private toilet and shower. Each site looks out on to the Linyanti wetlands and offer great sundowner views. The gas set-up to heat the water was a little terrifying (more like a flame thrower) but when we mentioned it was not heating the water, the manager was quick to sort it out. It was therefore a little sad that more thought was not given to the reception area, especially as it is the first impression you have of the camp. Just looked dilapidated and neglected with no obvious place to check-in.

We stayed 3 nights at Livingstone's Camp and it was actually a beautiful location. It was a pity that the floodplains had no water at that time .... must be gorgeous when filled. Facilities at Livingstone are very good - nice ablution block with hot water (gas), spacious kitchen area and enough space for pitching up your tents. Camp sites well apart from another. What needs a bit of attention is the fire place area. Why only average? For NAM$ 400 per night it is overpriced since no electricity is available. The special rate of NAM 250 at that time is more in line with other camp sites. Our highlight .... when we left and said goodbye, we mentioned that we heard hyenas 'in the night. " Oh no, that were hippo's imitating hyenas!!!" :-) :-)
