This is an enormous and well loved area of Namibian desert. The landscape is stark and beautiful. You can see forever with the frequent opportunity to spot an Oryx patrolling his territory or a Fairy Circle cleared out of the sparse desert vegetation.

very nice worth visiting when you are in Namibia. Spotted some wildlife there, as is with a lot of Namibia's nature, you can have it for yourself from time to time.

Lots of places to stay, clean resorts. Open expanses and great views. Wildlife is abundant but sporadic. A keen eye on the drive will see an abundance.

Great experience for outdoor lovers. Hiking trail runs mainly through sand dunes and is fairly easy but one should be fit. One second day the terrain is partly rocky but the main challenge are hot temperatures. Make sure you drink enough water. Once at camp...More

Where you get in, is where you get out. It is a tour. No way to do it differently in my opinion

I am sorry not being in a position to answer your question..... You will have to go directly on Google and check the offers you can find. There are camping places but not many. I didn't camp when I visited NamibRand !
