A number of self-catering (self-contained) accommodation options are available. Ngepi’s camping sites are each provided with its own water supply and an environmentally friendly power point. The ablution facilities are equipped with solar hot water showers and the sites are lit at night by means of solar power.
Ngepi Camp boasts huge trees, which means that your tent will most likely be pitched in cool shade. The en-suite bush huts provide family accommodation, each with a double bed and two single beds. If you have never slept in a tree house before – this is your chance! Ngepi Camp offers a number of en-suite tree houses overlooking the Kavango River. Enough to turn the Swiss Family Robinson green with envy! As with the camping sites, the bush huts and tree houses are equipped with solar power.
Ngepi Camp offers many opportunities to experience the Zambezi Region. Lazy Mokoro safaris or boat cruises on the Kavango river, fishing (catch and release only), guided game drives in the nearby national parks, guided birdwatching expeditions, guided walks to the nearby village, as well as river rafting.

The perfect way to end a day at Ngepi Camp, is to enjoy a sundowner on the wooden deck overlooking the Kavango river, followed by an evening of great food and convivial conversation in the bush pub.
