Reception staff are helpful but the tents are small and basic and not worth the money. We had trouble closing certain zips and the open air toilet did not flush without you reaching into the cistern.There were holes by the zips which unwanted creatures could potentially use to gain entrance.Our light in the tent was constantly on the blink. We paid a lot of money for the tent and found it the worst value we encountered in Namibia during our seven week trip. The food was fine.

Stayed one night at Madisa camp and enjoyed ourselves. We found reception staff welcoming and responsive to our questions (perhaps a bit shy at first, but opened up). The tent and linens were good and we found the open air restroom clean and in a nice setting. It was nice to wake up to such a view out front of our tent and you are spaced a ways away from other sites so you don't hear others. Very peaceful! We found the dinner to be delicious and as a vegetarian, they made me a great meal. We agree with other reviewers that the dinner is quite expensive - it's been the most expensive meal we've had in Namibia - but this could be due to the distance and its remote location. The pool was fine. All in all, we enjoyed our stay here - the location alone makes it worth it.

We were nine person who stayed for two nights in november 2019. The tents are carefully put up in the area so they look like they always been there. Bathrooms are under the open sky and also nicely made out from the natural surroundings. Homecooked delicius meals are served in the area close to reception. On day two we went on a tour to see the desert elephants of the Ugab river area. The drought has hit the area very had, but we still managed to se two elephants. We all truely enjoyed or stay at Madisa Camp. It is very different from all the other camps we have seen, a camp not to be missed.

We camped here for one night. The campsites are well-spaced. The campsite facilities are adequate. The sites have electricity for limited hours, but it is insufficient to charge a fridge in a camping van. There is a small pool. The restaurant is pretty good, though breakfast was served a little later than scheduled, which irritated our morning game drive driver. We went on the game drive to see desert elephants. We saw about a dozen of them. It was interesting, mainly because we had not yet seen elephants on our trip. The elephants were in a state of agitation reportedly due to bad behavior of the manager of White Lady Lodge and irresponsible game drivers employed by that lodge. Later, we saw perhaps a thousand elephants between Chobe and Okavango. If you have limited time, and are going to one or more of those places, you might consider skipping this place.

The Campsite is nicely located and the toilet and shower is basic but clean. The pool at the reception is nice to chill. The elephant trekking was cool and we saw the elephants. Service is good and a relaxing atmosphere
