Purros Camp is part of a multi-day fly-in safari that includes Kuidas Camp and Kunene Camp. About half way between the other two camps, Purros is deep in the Kaokoland wilderness. The camp is built on the edge of the dry Hoarusib River and shaded by beautiful acacia trees. Like the other two camps, accommodation treads lightly on the delicate ecosystem with reed huts housing dome tents; each tent is simply furnished with twin beds, en suite bucket showers with hot water, wash basins, and a chemical toilet that supplements the shared bathrooms in the living area.
The main living area at Purros Camp looks out over the river valley. A small dining area and bar opens onto the campfire perfect for drifting off into the warm starlit nights. Purros Camp is reserved exclusively for individual groups in a fly-in safari and can accommodate up to eight guests at a time. The kitchen prepares wholesome food with fresh ingredients and the camp has a good stock of imported wines.
Several wildlife species visit the Hoarusib dry riverbed - such as the desert adapted elephant, giraffe, rhino, kudu, zebra and ostrich. Nearby is the Purros Traditional Himba Village (15 minutes). Access is by 4x4 due to sandy patches. No fuel facilities available at the campsite.
