  • Best time to travel

    With its low rainfall, Namibia is generally good to visit all year round.  Rainfall can be expected between the months of December to March but it’s generally localized, afternoon thunderstorms.  The winter months of June to August are generally pleasant during the day but very cold to freezing at night, especially in some desert areas.  Keen photographers generally prefer the months of March to May and August to October to visit Sosussvlei as the cool air offers clear skies for photography.

Granite outcrops, spectacular views and roaming wildlife is the setting for Desert Quiver Camp.  Stylish and comfortable self catering accommodation come together with a beautiful landscape to create Desert Quiver Camp.  Conveniently located only 5 km from the entrance to Sossusvlei, its is a great base from which to explore the Namib.  On site facilities include a sparkling swimming pool in which to break the heat of the day, communal boma areas and a fully stocked bar.  Guests can also order fresh food supplies and firewood from the Reception area.

Self Catering Units

There are 24 modern self catering units on offer at Desert Quiver Camp.  Slightly spread out in the desert landscape to make the most of the beautiful views to be enjoyed.  Each unit is spacious with twin beds, a fold out sleeper couch for two young children to share and en suite bathroom.  The patio has a barbeque facility, fitted kitchenette with wash up area, under counter fridge and 2 plate hob.


Desert Quiver Camp is a self catering property.  There is nothing more enjoyable than a fire cooked meal in Africa after a busy day. Food supplies can be purchased from the shop at Sossus Oasis shop or ordered from the Reception.  For a treat guests can also book a meal at Sossusvlei Lodge which is situated nearby.


Guests can book activities with the Sossusvlei Lodge Adventure Centre offers unique ways of experiencing the haunting beauty of the desert landscape.  One of the highlights has to be a hot air balloon flight over the desert.  The guides are all very knowledgeable and will share their first hand experience and insights with guests during guided activities.  Activities on offer include guided visits to Sossusvlei, sundowner nature drives, bush dinners, guided nature walks, Sesriem Canyon excursions and more.
