Accommodation in NamibiaNamibia offers accommodation in any price range, from backpackers, small B&B's, comfortable middleclass hotels and holiday apartments to luxurious game lodges of the highest standard.
Many drought-stricken farmers have resorted to "farming tourists" and have created idyllic places for visitors on their premises, usually many thousands of hectares in size. Stylish accommodation, good food, beautiful surroundings, peaceful nature, hiking and horse-riding, game viewing and much more await the guests. You can also learn about life on a Namibian farm, ecology, geology and the plants and animals of the region.
The 'restcamps' in the National Parks are still government-run. The quality of the accommodation is acceptable, but not always good value. Nevertheless, they are often fully booked, particularly in the Etosha Park.

Staying at a lodge is usually costly. You have to, however, keep in mind that the maintenance costs of these venues are high. All the provisions have to be transported over large distances, often hundreds of kilometres on gravel roads. The construction and furnishing of a lodge is equally costly.
Today, a good number of campgrounds is also available in Namibia. Even in the remotest places like the Kaokoland or Bushmanland you find clean camps in wonderful nature. They are usually run as communal projects by the local population and are fairly cheap. Reservations at NACOBTA in Windhoek. Wild camping is not allowed in Namibia.
