What our guests have said about this accommodation

Peter Lofstedt
New ablutions are good.
Kobie Moolman
The Richersveld was awesome!
G Kalis
As always, a pleasant experience. Thumbs up for the additional ablution at De Hoop. The maintenance and care is remarkable. Although a dry season the veld was amazing and I must admit Tattasberg touch our soles. Keep it up we will be back
Colin Turner
The staff at Sendelings drift were fantastic, we underestimated the traveling time and were late arriving on Saturday evening, we planned to camp at Sendelings Drift but because we arrived late and had children with us we requested two Chalets for the night. Our request was no problem and the duty manager (Carmen) came from her home to let us have the keys. The friendly way in which we were treated was really wonderful particularly after a long trip. Thank you to Elias at the gate, he was very eager to help with advice. We camped at de Hoop for four nights and really enjoyed the experience.The only negative of the trip was, after we had crossed into Namibia and passed through the Border Post, to be harassed by two members of the Namibian Police scratching through wallets and bags apparently looking for diamonds but all the while trying to solicit bribes in money or in kind. Other than this one incident we really enjoyed our stay!

The campsite was lovely. We were expecting rustic which is what we got. The roads are in shocking condition and the goats and sheep that are allowed to graze in the park was a disappointing sight.

Good Camp site and ablutions. Fishing average, but disappointing to find toilet paper etc littering the river bank...there aught to be some signs and perhaps fining in place to stop this disgusting practice. Perhaps an awareness leaflet on disposal/etiquette of toilet waste in bush/river areas used by tourists and fishermen....I was surprised to see such a pristine environment so abused by mostly south african campers.....
Gert Kalis
De Hoop is and will remain the preffered camp for campers. Kokerboom can be as good if the water and ablution can be rectified.
L Grassow
We stayed 2 nights at this camp. Nice for people who like fishing.If you are not lucky to find camping near the river you end up in thick sand. Still enjoyed it very much
Joe Terblanche
Thank you for the Richtersveld, it was awesome!Some of the roads are just badly corrugated, and something sad was the new diggings between De Hoop, and Die Werf. It is sad to see how badly dug up this part is, and that it is simply left this way. But once again, thank you for the opportunity to visit this amazing sacred place.

The destination is everything for De Hoop. Being there out of season was a bonus as it is not busy in May which adds to the experience of the great outdoors. Remote and wild. A fabulous experience.
Awie & Ruth Thomas
Where ever we travel, from Uberammergau to Sendelingsdrif, we experience the greatness of our Saviour and Creator. The Richtersveld is special, silent, beautiful....will always go back for this experience! We saw plenty birds, Springbok and Klipspringers, fished for Yellowfish and Barbel in the river... took stunning pictures... left only our footprints, as did the Richtersveld in our lives!!
