Distance about 15km.
It was another beautiful night. We heard large animal sounds for the first time since our arrival in this area. Jackal and Zebra. And in the morning bird calls! Namaqua Sandgrouse, Hornbill, Grey Louries, Guineafowl, Glossy Starlings. The road was quite bumpy and real bad in places. We travelled at low speed, enjoying the beautiful scenery.
From Hoarusib Bushcamp to Puros Conservancy
Upon reaching Puros campsite, most people have just finished an adventurous trip to get there. Most people are then also surprised by the wonderful camp that Puros is.
The camp's facilities include four secluded campsites that can accommodate up to 4 tents each, with braai area, tap, showers and flush toilets. Two extra sites for larger groups are both equipped with two toilets and two showers each. The massive shady trees offers cool and serene lazing spots even in the harsh midday heat.
The atmosphere at Puros is laid-back and the excellent bush luxury enables the weary traveller to relax, get clean again and to have a base from where several exciting excursions may be undertaken. Guided tours and hikes are offered.
Soon after arrival, the fire that heats up your washing water will be lit for you and you just have to ask the staff for firewood, and it will be delivered to your campsite.
There is a pub where a cold one can be appreciated, combating the normal heat of the area.
Puros is an open camp. There are no fences around the camp, with Elephants, Giraffe, Rhino, Kudu, Zebra, Ostrich and other species frequently visiting the camp, making it necessary to caution visitors about the dangers of feeding animals and especially Elephants. Elephants can smell oranges, apples and other delicacies in your tent and then take it out, destroying the tent in the process. Rather keep your food in airtight containers where it cannot be seen or smelled.
Puros can only be reached with a 4X4 vehicle or by helicopter.
