It is what it is!

We wanted to have 3 nights at Nhoma, but could only get 2 nights - so we stayed here as it broke the journey, and meant we could get to Nhama in time for the walk with the bushmen the following morning, and make the mist of our time there. Quite basic, and the food was not great, but it served its purpose for us, and was fine for one night.

Seems to be mainly used by officials visiting the area, as it's the main town. Don't expect to be able to use the swimming pool, which was full of crisp packets. Although the craft centre looked like it could have been worth a stop (if we'd had time) we were advised get the main attractions are the hairdressers and an underwear shop (crafts not actually being a feature apparently).

Deep and wonderful experience

Arno really knows his stuff and is quite remarkable in so many ways. We were given a good intro to life of bushmen and how modern civilisation is affecting them - views of time and space need rethinking!

Visit to Khadoum Game Reserve a very special and memorable experience.

Facilities at camp much better than expected.

Whilst we loved every minute of it the caution in brochure is very appropriate.
