Camping in Namibia: 8 Amazing Campsites

Campsites in Namibia are generally well equipped, easy to get to, and affordable. Upon reaching our first site, we were happy to find WiFi, hot showers, a restaurant, shops with food and water, and even electric outlets. These amenities seemed pretty standard across most of our campsites with few exceptions. Our time camping was very memorable and will stay with us for our lifetimes. The landscapes were beautiful, and some camps we had all to ourselves. How could you pass up such an opportunity to explore Namibia?

Photostory: Seagull Attack at Kyrping | LotsaSmiles Photography

We’re taking a small break this week, as we were crazy busy preparing for and running our home anime convention, Kumoricon (did you know we’re in charge of the convention’s official video and photography?).  That’s one event we’ll both actually miss considerably next year.  I’ve always said I wouldn’t miss Kumoricon for the world… but that’s precisely what we’ll be doing!

Anyway, we’ll be back next week with some more Florida stories, but in the meantime, enjoy this fun photostory from one of our campgrounds in Norway, Kyrping!


We saw plenty of fauna in Norway (though certainly not as much as in Costa Rica).  And while the species didn’t really surprise us, their behaviors did.  We passed lounging yaks, curious goats, and baying sheep (were we in Norway or Scotland?).  And I was attacked by a seagull.

Norway Campsites – What the Wifi?

In America, we’re accustomed to certain amenities in a campground.  Space to lay out a tent, a spot to park our car, a pre-established fire pit.  If we’re feeling fancy, we’ll ensure there’s an outhouse nearby.  A step up from that might also offer a wooden picnic table in our site and perhaps – gasp! – real plumbing-connected toilets.  Now, that’s almost no longer camping at that point.

But what about showers?  Rarely.  A community kitchen?  Haha, no.  Wifi?  Are you serious?

We were quite surprised to find out what was considered standard in Norwegian camping.
