Bloedkoppie

Campground in Namib Section

These spots are among the most beautiful and popular sites in the park. If you’re coming from Swakopmund, they lie 55km northeast of the C28, along a signposted track. The northern sites may be accessed with 2WD, but they tend to be more crowded. The southern sites are quieter and more secluded, but can be reached only by 4WD.

The surrounding area offers some pleasant walking, and at Klein Tinkas, 5km east of Bloedkoppie, you’ll see the ruins of a colonial police station (basically a ruined hut) and the graves of two German police officers dating back to 1895.
