Ozohere Campsite is in Damaraland in Erongo region in Namibia. The Campsite is located 45km north of Uis on the C 35 the main road between Khorixas and Twyfelfontein. It is located on the banks of the Ugab River in and around huge boulders under shady trees. The name Ozohere is the Herero word meaning rock dassie. Although very basic, it is a great spot to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. It’s a no frills, peaceful stopover.

The Ugab River is an ephemeral river that only flows above the surface of its sandy bed a few days each year, but even during much of the dry winter season, pools of water remain in certain places. The river provides water for the rare desert elephant as well as giraffe, mountain zebra and the largest population of free roaming black rhinoceroses in the world. As the local name of the campsite suggests, rock dassies are found in abundance in this area and they are regular guests. There are 5 carefully selected campsites and every campsite has its own braai facilities as well as water point. There is a communal ablution block with basic warm water showers and flush toilets. Ozohere offers a restaurant where cool drinks, tea/coffee and meals are available, but otherwise campers must be completely self-sufficient. Day visitors are welcome for meals and refreshments.
Flora: Quite a few plants grow around the campsite, although much of the visible vegetation is confined to the exotic wild tobacco, (Nicotiana glauca). Indigenous plants found there include stunted acacia trees, !Nara bushes, (Acanthosicyos horridus), with their (almost leafless) spiky green stems, and improbable large, spiky melons.
