Roy's Restcamp

Discover Roy's Restcamp

Located 55km north of Grootfontein, Roy's Camp is a convenient stopover for those enroute to central Namibia, Rundu and the Zambezi region. This somewhat quirky rest camp is 'cheap and cheerful', with a warm, laid-back atmosphere. Roy's Rest Camp forms a small part of the 2800ha Elandslaagte farm, one of the oldest farms in the district of Grootfontein.

Roy's offers 5 standard stone and thatch bungalows with an unusual rustic design. Each room is ensuite with twin beds, air conditioning, fan, mosquito net and barbeque facilities. There is also 2 double story family units with similar facilities. There is also a campsite on the property with 12 sites, kitchen area and a shower and toilet block.
The thatched main area has an informal bar and restaurant with rustic furniture features such as bar stools made from animal skin-covered tree trunks and chairs with kudu horn armrests. Artwork from local artists adorns the walls. Meals can be buffet or ordered from 'a la carte' menus. Cuisine is largely 'boere kos' translated as Afrikaans farm style home cooking. Whist dining, guests can enjoy the excellent view of the camp's waterhole where warthog, eland and other antelope species are common visitors. Evenings can be spent around the campfire on overturned drums forming stools.
Roy's Rest Camp also features a cooling swimming pool with lounge deck and curio shop selling locally made arts and crafts. An internet facility and communal safe are also available.
