A few months ago a group of us visited Ndurukoro Camp & Chalets in northern Namibia for a weekend away. This is the furthest I’ve been up north and all I can say it wow – what a gem this place is! Situated about 150km from Rundu on the banks of the Kavango river, this is a must-visit stop if you’re planning a trip to or from the Caprivi.
Ndurukoro Camp & Chalets offer luxury tents as accommodation, each tent with it’s own bathroom and little veranda. They also have camping sites. We had a tent a little further back from the river, so we didn’t have an unobstructed view of the river, but request a tent right on the river for a stunning view! The sunsets over the river are breath-taking.
Our group was the only group at Ndurukoro Camp & Chalets on that specific weekend, which was great. We only stayed for two nights, but next time we’ll definitely stay longer. A few tips and things to keep in mind:
- Fill up your car in Rundu, there is no gas station close by and you’ll need to be able to make the trip to Ndurukoro Camp & Chalets and back
- Pack Doom and mosquito repellent
- Be careful of crocodiles – no jokes!
- There is very little cellphone reception at the camp
We had a really great time – and we’ll definitely be back! If you have any other recommendations for must-see places in the north of Namibia, let me know 🙂
