About Oewerbos River Camp

Oewerbos River Camp is situated on the banks of the meandering Orange River en route to the Richtersveld Transfrontier Park. Ideally positioned halfway between Cape Town and Windhoek, you'll find this stunning camp to be the ideal stopover. Oewerbos River Camp offers meals, a self-catering option and has a full bar available to its guests.

At Oewerbos you can just relax, chill at the pool or enjoy the built in Jacuzzi, unwind on the deck directly overlooking the river while sipping on an ice cold beverage or read a book in your hammock. Don't leave before experiencing one of our famous pizzas from the wood-burning oven while you take in the Orange River at sunset. But that's not where the beauty ends - the Richtersveld night sky is ablaze with millions of stars. This is possibly one of the best places in the world for stargazing.

Oewerbos River Camp strives to offer our guests personalized service, offering a range of accommodation options and activities, including boat trips, fresh water angling and excellent birdwatching opportunities. Explore the large variety of plants, strange rock formations and other wildlife the Richtersveld has to offer.

Nice playpark for kids. Lovely shady stands. Pet Friendly park. Friendly and helpful team. Bunch of animals all over the place. Really good food at restaurant. @SafariNow, please update your prices, R300 a stand per night (not R150), still a steal for this campsite.

We were not able to utilize the accommodation due to the corona virus restrictions. We hope to use the deposit paid for our future trip.We are not able to rate the accommodation.

Although it is selfcatering,, it would have been nice if there was some milk in the fridge for coffee. Unfortunately it was not even switch on. But on a positive note they went out of their way to prepare us some steak although they were only serving pizza and burgers that night.
