On the edge of the Dorob Park,the Swakopmund River mouth and mere metres from the beach, Tiger Reef has a prime location can't be beaten. Clean, neat private campsites with covered parking, a sprawling grass 'park' and right next to the famous Tiger Reef Beach Bar and Grill. Access control with a remote gate and security, communal area and hot showers. Stroll along the beach to the the lagoon in the Dorob National Park behold and its bird life - flamingos, pelicans etc. The National Marine Aquarium is meters from our entrance, walking distance to the jetty and the unforgettable restaurant at it's point-some 300 odd metres into the Atlantic Ocean- Jetty 1905. Town centre is a scenic few blocks away. We can't wait to welcome you at Tiger Reef Campsite

Really doesn't live up to the description on the website.
Driving in, the Tiger Reef sign near the office is old, faded and illegible.

Ablutions facilities are superb - 10/10

However there are none of the things quoted on the Lighthouse Group website
* no water outlets in campsites
* only 5 amp power (stated 220V)
* no lush green lawn
* no boma at communal "braai area"
* no braai grids in braai at campsite

* And most importantly * definitely no 24 hour security as the 'fence' is just palm fronds and several cars and campsites were broken into last night, some foreign tourists losing all their clothing.
Workers tried to hammer in some planks in several places today, but there was no reassurance by management to campers that they would step up security.
There are 'lookout towers' all around the campsite, but they are unmanned.
Looking at previous posts now, security has clearly been a problem for years.

I wouldn't usually complain (and have had nothing but 5-star reports about each and every place we have stayed on our 4-week trip through Namibia)
But we asked to leave a day early due to the security issues and they refused to refund us. No problem.

Also compared to all the other campsites we have stayed (many with pools and all the above mentioned items and more) it is not really value for money

Website needs to be amended to reflect current situation.

We stayed here in the quiet season and there were only a few other people at the campsite with us. Despite the low numbers, the facilities were immaculate and staff was always present. It’s a nice little
Campsite with some privacy between each site. The raised sitting area great and there is lots of room to park a truck.
Water was always hot in showers.

TigerReef is a good place to stay for a couple of days. Going to the beach and bar takes 3 minutes. When you want to go to city centre it’s also less than 10 minutes by foot.

Campsites are clean and wide enough for a car with rooftent. Theres all you need at your site and toilets/showers aber just a few meters away.

Staff is friendly and always there if you need any help!

On a camping trip throughout Namibia and stayed at so many beautiful places- but Tiger Reef in Swakopmund was a real disappointment. The campground is advertised as being on the river and a few meters from the beach, but fails to mention that between you and the beach is a scrapyard and the only view you have is into the fence of the scrap yard. The campsite had no water point, no braii grids, and the electricity point provided were only allowed to be used to charge your cell phone. The grounds were sandy and dusty and not even the covered area were paved. We set our tent and escaped into the city for a quick meal and left the campsite as early as we could in the morning. There must be better camping options in Swakopmund which is a much needed stopover for campers going into the north of Namibia.

From requesting a quotation on a specific camp site to checking in and security and night shift and weekend staff, all extremely helpfull, I even leave my fishing rod, car keys, computer in the tent and they look after it. Sleeping in a tent, hearing the ocian at night, I have no words to describe it, beautiful. One problem, toilets and showers keep leaking, we can not afford to waste water in Namibia

Extremely Nice place to camp near the ocian, staff verry friendly and helpful and the place is clean. The nearby Tiger Reef Restuarant offer good food and is not to expensive. Restuarant staff also very friendly and fast service. I will definately go camp there again.

Tiger Reef, what a place. It’s just on the beach, so one sleeps with the sound of the waves, awesome. Clean facilities, hot water and electric power available on each campsite. 1 small issue though, the separate Camp site fee during ( in season ) period, I feel it’s unnecessary, competitive campsites don’t have such a fee. Overall it’s a great place, & security guards give a peace of mind. I enjoyed my stay.

The campsite is at the entrance of Swakopmund right at the beach. An ideal place for camping and caravaning. Small spots with table and barbecue give you a nice niche. The facilities are very clean and the team is highly motivated in service and very helpful if asked. The bar and restaurant nearby at the beach allow a pleasant dinner or a decent sundowner.

Very dusty and sandy. No grass or pool. Toilet facilities are shared between women and men. Security was good, but friendliness in office needs serious attention. A lot of music noice after 22:00. Location of Tiger Reef is good.

No, they only have communal bathrooms. Unfortunately they do not have ceilings either and the showers are drafty.
