Weltevrede Restcamp review

Passed it on way down to Siesreim and sandunes from BullSport. Got there on return north about 3 pm and went for walk Food in evening good. Next day a waste of time. Small artificial waterhole out back attracted springbok and birds early which was nice. Breakfast disappointing. Second day a waste of time. One short walk up to a viewpoint but nothing much to see. Went to another waterhole along tracks. No game, a few birds some sociable weavers and a falcon.

It would have been better to stay extra day at Bullsport and done another walk and just used Weltered as an overnight stop to Swakopmund. Swimming pool appalling, no way anyone would want to take a dip.

Expert Africa comments

We were sorry that this traveller had a disappointing stay at Weltevrede. They obviously felt that there weren’t enough activities on site to make their stay worthwhile, and was disappointed with the standard of the swimming pool. Generally, we recommend Weltevrede as a small and homely farmstead, offering some low-key activities on the farm itself. However, usually we advise that the main reason for a stay here it to visit the dunes at Sossusvlei and to explore Sesriem Canyon. This traveller opted to visit the dunes en route to Weltevrede, so had already experienced the areas highlight. We are sorry if we didn’t explain how best to explore the region in the time he had here.

Surprisingly disappointing

We got a very enthusiastic welcome but when we saw the rooms it was downhill compared to others.
Food wasn't prepared well either...low quality.
In the morning we expected a breakfast to go
Instead we got a new pack bag with thermoses ...which no one explained why
We took the sandwiches and left it on the table as there was no one official to talk to.
Coffee and tea were suppose to be available ....but not!
Accommodation and facilities needs to be updated.
