An overnight camp at the Naute Dam and looking down on 'all of that water' after driving across the desert makes for a pleasant break. It's inexpensive and not too far a diversion from the main road system.


The Naute Dam was constructed across the Lowen River, which has its source some 250km to the east, in 1970-1972 and was commissioned on 09.09.1972. The Naute Dam is the second largest dam in Namibia having a capacity of 83 million cubic metres of water. The months of inflow for the Naute Dam are usually February to April. The sluice gates are opened when the capacity of the dam reaches 110%. The overflow runs west where it joins the Fish River. It is a most spectacular site to see the sluice gates open with flumes of water pouring out onto the desert landscape.


Near to the dam is the Naute Game Park which is 23,000ha in size, but this is not open to the public and serves as a protectorate for Gemsbok, Klipspringer, Kudu, and Ostrich. There is a 600ha area on the south side of the dam that has been set aside for use of the public for boating and fishing.


The facility is open for day visitors and campers. The camping areas look down onto the dam which is quite picturesque after driving across the desert. The camp sites have piped drinking water, but there are no shower facilities or piped hot water. You can manage a sponge-bath in the toilets (cold water only). You'd best stock up with supplies and fire wood in the nearest town as the small shop on site has limited stock.


The camp site is under the management of Mrs. Joey Handley. Further information can be obtained on Tel / Fax: +264 (0)63 250533

Camp Site Prices: About N$30 per night.
