Quivertree Forest Rest Camp - General

It is a beautiful area with some of the most breath-taking rock formations you have ever seen. The lodge is situated on the farm Gariganus and provides a warm and relaxed farm atmosphere.

The Location

Quivertree Forest Rest Camp is located 13km northeast of Keetmanshoop.



The Quivertree Forest Rest Camp is a perfect stopover for groups. The accommodation consists of a number of “Igloo”-type chalets with simple self-catering (self-contained) facilities. There is also a central kitchen, which can be used if the group would like to get together in the evening and enjoy a central campfire. A raised observation deck is a wonderful place to watch the stars in the evening. There is a swimming pool to cool off in during the hot summer months and Quivertree Forest Rest Camp will provide meals on request. There are also 2 larger units which are ideal for families. The friendly hosts and relaxed atmosphere make a visit to Quivertree Forest Rest Camp a pleasure.

The camping facilities are excellent and the campsites have a delightful view of the magnificent and ancient quiver trees in the quiver tree forest. Bird life in the area includes the lovely rosy-faced lovebird and the crimson-breasted shrike.




A visit to the Giant’s Playground to see the incredible dolorite formations is a must and can be organized at the Quivertree Forest Rest Camp. The spectacular quiver tree forest is also right next to the lodge and is any photographer’s dream. Some of the Aloe trees in this forest are estimated to be between 200 and 300 years old. The name of the quiver tree comes from the pliable bark that was used to make quivers by the early Bushmen hunters. These fascinating trees are also called “kokerbome” and only begin to flower for the first time when they are 20 to 30 years old. This particular forest has now been declared a national monument.
