Camp Aussicht is a unique restcamp in the Kaokoveld situated south of Opuwo. The camp offers four guest rooms and five campsites. Owner Marius Steiner keeps very personal contact to the guests and offers walks into the old Dioptase mine. To reach the camp, which is a bit off the beaten track, a 4x4 car is recommended.
Situated in the middle of lovely nowhere in the northwest of Namibia, Camp Aussicht ("Camp with a View") offers exactly what it’s name promises: spectacular views of Damara and Kaokoland.
Marius Steiner will gladly make your stay unforgettable. Whether you are camping and self catering or staying in the small lodge (with 4 double rooms). Camp Aussicht is also a wonderful stop over on your way to Epupa and/or Etosha.
Camp Aussicht sits on top of a hill overlooking Damaraland to the west. Originally practically single handedly built as a dioptase mine (a rare mineral found only here and in Russia) Marius Steiner started a small lodge and campsite. There are 4 double rooms and 2 ‘bucket showers’ which is both environmentally friendly and a lot of fun. Tap your bucket of hot water directly from the wood fired boiler and pour it into the bucket shower. You will find one bucket is enough! There are 2 toilets outside, simple but clean. Breakfast and dinner are served either on the terrace or in the dining room. Current (220V) is available for charging batteries etc.
Just above the lodge area you’ll find the perfect camp spot. There are 5 places with enough room for your car, tent and braai.
