Klein Aus Vista is a lovely campsite with spacious sites under trees, great bathrooms with hot showers, and you get to use the facilities at the Dessert Horse Inn (pool, bar, lounge, good wifi etc). The inn is about a 15min walk away. There are some short walks around the campsite. They are currently running a special of NAD 140 pppn. Kids half price.

Very nice place with super friendly owners. A awesome pool and very good restaurant. I do recommend the steaks! Prices are reasonable and not to high.
Wifi at pool, bar and restaurant.
Campsites have shade, one facility building with very hot water.
The hiking trails are amazing and there is one for everyone. We enjoyed going on a long hike after being in the car in Namibia a lot of times.
If you are a mountain biker you should definitely stop here. The owner is enthusiastic about biking and the trails are beautiful.
All in all you should stay here instead of Lüderitz. Just go to Kolmannskop and Lüderitz from here.
The baking fresh bread for very good prices. The breads are huge. We ordered burgerbuns as well and they were so nice to add them.

Great camping spot nestled amongst the hills, 2km away from the Klein-Aus Vista reception & lodge. Superb service from staff on arrival, very friendly & helpful. Pool area is lovely, they offer towels to use as well. Ablutions at campsite very clean & tidy, gas geyser for hot water. Gets very busy with a lot of mainly German travellers stopping to camp overnight, but peaceful & quiet during the day. Watch out for the Jackals trying to get into the bins for food at night! We saw wild horses walk through the camp one morning. Great place to stay & do a day trip to Kolmanskop & Luderitz. Gets cold at night, and can get windy.

Nice campsite and a great place for hiking, both short and longer hikes. It’s very open and the wind can really whip up. The campsite was full when we were there and with only 2 showers and toilet per sex it gets very busy! Ablutions are very clean. No power at sites. Stars are incredible! 140pppn

Billy the kid and all his posse would thrive here. It has a lovely western charm which adds to the unique flavor of this campsite. Most of the sites are quite closely packed but it is still one of our favorites - book camp site 10! Clean but few ablutions, hot water, ice, wood, and unfriendly front of house.

Beautiful site. Nice clean ablutions, shower was hot on and off. Those windbreakers are there for a reason, crazy wind all night. We could not have slept in our rooftop, put up our ground tent behind the windbreaker instead. We preferred this site over Aus Haven. Price $N140 pp.

Stayed two nights at site 10, has the most privacy! You can use the pool and restaurant off the lodge! Nice and clean ablutions.
Please give the birds (nested in the tree) some water?

As described. Enjoyed it here, the setting is beautiful. Just to highlight that the camp site is about 2km from the reception/lodge so if you want dinner or a drink you have to walk or drive back to the main lodge. Staff were great.

Nice place to see, pool is nice and the bar and facilities at the pool are good.
They don’t have electricity at the campsite which is 2km away from the reception but they happy to charge your stuff. Make sure you double check if they really do it cause after two night wild camping we needed some things charged but after 4 hours in the pool/bar nothing was charged.
They also say WiFi is 300mb per day but that’s not working well either.
Campsite is clean and you got your own braai and pick nick table. Very small sites though

Campsite is set far away from the resort but ablutions are good. The 10 pitches were all booked when we arrived but on asking we were allowed to camp our big-rig in the rather sandy "overflow" area for 135 NAD for 2 people and the truck. Wifi is at the lodge only.

Still as described earlier. Spacious spots with shade, braai place, a bench and some wind cover in form of a wooden fence. Well maintained ablutions. The main lodge looked great and has a pool. Wifi at the lodge, but it worked for a total of about 10 minutes when we stayed. Great option around aus.

We have visited this lovely campsite a few times and generally been the only ones camping. This time however was completely different. Every night large groups of overlanding groups or camper van tours all squeezed into the 10 sites . Most days there were 40 or more people on the site using only 4 showers & toilets. They even had people in the "overflow site " i.e. In the bush behind campsite 10 !!!!. The ambience has changed from a quiet peaceful campsite to a very noisy one. Only Good thing was most people disappeared during the day . Nice walking the hills though. 260 per couple per night. Wifi good when it works in the Lodge. Clean swimming pool that campers can use .

Just as described below... a very nice campsite on the way to or from Luderitz. Beautiful mountain scenery. The lack of any lights or electricity is excellent for star gazing. There is solar electricity in the ablutions, which are modern and very well maintained. The wild horses came to visit while we were there. Great hiking trails from about 2 hours to 5 hours duration. Price to camp is N$130 per adult.
