Sesriem Campsite

Welcome to Sesriem Campsite

At the entry to Sossusvlei is Sesriem Canyon, where centuries of erosion have incised a narrow gorge about 1 km in length.  At the foot of the gorge, which plunges down to 30 to 40 metres, are pools that become replenished after good rains.

Sesriem derives its name from the time when earlier pioneers tied six lengths of rawhide thongs (riem) together to draw water from the pools.  Explore the Sesriem Canyon from this great and scenic campsite.
