In this remote world of extremes, you discover the tiny jewel that is Agama River Camp, deriving its name from the first living creature to be seen when your hosts first set foot here - a brightly coloured lizard which will often be seen around the camp in both animal and art forms.
Since that first step, Jonathan and Monique Leach have worked hard to build up the campsites which include some unusual features.
More recently they have added a number of rustic style chalets, incorporating touches of luxury alongside practicality, plus the option to sleep under the stars, or just to stargaze if you're entranced by the night-sky.
Each chalet has A/C, two modern three quarter beds, side tables with lamps, an open cuboard, a long wall mounted table which can be used to put a suitcase on or apply make-up from. a strong desk fan for air circulation, a portable lamp for emergencies, two extra blankets for the cold nights.Two chairs are also provided inside the room and two for the veranda.
The bathroom has a large spacious shower with hand basin and mirror. The toilet is a separate facility separated by a solid door.
Each Chalet has a solid deck for the option of sleeping under the sky or simply for an elavated view.
Available also to all Agama occupants is our friendly restaurant with great food and a cosy bar, as well as a sunset viewing deck and swimming pool
The camp sites are scattered along the lower 'dieprevier' river course, each campsite is built under large acacia trees and surrounded partially by a wooden pole barrrier acting as a wind shield and offering some privacy, they are terraced and levelled with clean river sand.
Each site contains; a free standing tap, wash up facility, a braai area with grid, a twelve volt energy saving light (that can be attached to your car battery) and is easy walking distance to your shared ablution facilty.
Our communal ablution facility is like no other with open skies and large roomy, individually decorated chambers, hot water is provided by wood boilers every afternoon at around five o'clock. The ablutions are spacious, clean and imaginatively designed, each gender facility has six showers, six wash basins, three toilets, four mirrors and one bath, they are only partially covered to offer open sky views.The lighting is on throughout the night.
In addition to the main camp we also have an "exclusive campsite" at the foot of the Naukluft mountains. This camp is some 6 kms off the main road and is nestled in an ancient river system, it boasts two showers, two toilets, a braai area and running water. It was previously utilized by CC Africa's exclusive Anderson and Thirst-land expeditions, its charm is accentuated by the surrounding mountains and its remoteness.
Campers here can also enjoy the facilities at the "main camp"
