Campsites in Namibia / Botswana. How to book them?

Hi this looks like an obvious and easy question but I am having a hard time finding somewhere where I can book the campsites in Etosha and Botswana national parks (Chobe, Caprivi, Okavango mainly). Any advice?

1. Re: Campsites in Namibia / Botswana. How to book them?

In Etosha you can book campsites via NWR.

Contact reservations@nwr.com.na

Ihaha in Chobe, Xakanaxa and South Gate in Moremi are booked via Kwalate safaris

kwalatesafari@gmail.com

Savuti and Linyati in Chobe and Khwai in Moremi you book via reservations@sklcamps.co.bw

Third Bridge and South Camp you book via xomaesites@botsnet.bw

You can also get a local agent to sort this out for you.

For the Bots reservations you need to book way in advance especially for peak season.

You will be much better off having a local agent bookthis for you. Also, you will save money. The local agents get a significant discount over rack rates and you will come out ahead. They also will get better rooms, upgrades and some protection if a listing is lost or incorrect. The individual traveler in a foreign country will not get those things.

Use a local agent (we did last year and are again this year and saved significantly).

We used Gemma, but there are others on here that are good as well.

Hi there Gema

We are looking to visit Namibia in July. I was just wondering how much we would expect to pay on average per night for acommodation in some of the campsites you mention. Would you pay a price per person or per room?

Thanks for your help

at NWR camp, like Etosha, you pay around 110N$ per person per night, and, around 200N$ for the site

the camp in Moremi, Savuti, Chobe, 50U$ pppn and you still lave to pay your park entrances also

Botswana Parks: 120PUla per day and 50 for the vehicle

Namibian Parks: 80N$ per day, 10N$ for the car
