Location

The camp sits within a grassy valley with views of the Namib Desert dunes and sheltered by the Nubib, Tsaris and Naukluft Mountains. 30km south of Namib-Naukluft National Park, the camp adjoins the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Namib Sand Sea and activities are centred on exploring the nearby Sossusvlei.

Rooms

With panoramic views over the plains, 11 houses are set on stilts and offer modern and spacious accommodation. Decorated in neutral, brown and green tones, the interiors are stylish and comfortable with glass-fronted doors overlooking the vast space. There are star-gazing decks on the roof where guests can choose to sleep under the stars and shaded sundecks for enjoying the desert views. For an extra luxurious stay, the Superior Unit boasts a lounge area and a large private deck with plunge pool and loungers.

Communal Areas

The open-plan lounge is decorated with African textiles and offers deep, comfy sofas to relax in with a book or a post-activity cocktail. Dine on the shaded veranda or in the restaurant and cool off by the sparkling swimming pool with views of the vast surrounds. A highlight is the sundowner deck, perched above the lodge and the ideal spot to watch both sunset and sunrise.

Activities

Take drives in the reserve, Sesriem Canyon or to the towering dunes of Sossusvlei. Enjoy stunning guided walks through the valley and mountains to discover the red sand dunes and desert-adapted wildlife. Guests can also embark on horse-riding safaris for several days of camping and campfires under the stars. Joggers will enjoy the clearly marked running trails and for evening entertainment, sundowner drives are on offer. For a unique view of the landscape, take hot air balloon safaris or scenic helicopter flights over the Namib Desert.
