Although the comfortable cabin (of which there is just one) is only a 15 min walk (or 3 minute drive) from the main house at Barchan Dunes Retreat, you feel as if you are miles from anywhere. We liked the sense of isolation and tranquility from the moment we arrived. The cabin looks out over a flat valley of swaying... More

We absolutely loved our three night stay at Kuangu Kuangu - if you are looking for something a little bit different and complete romantic isolation, you couldn't stay anywhere better! We ate with the owners at Barchan Dune on the first night and the meal was lovely and the company very enjoyable, drinks are included which is a very nice... More

This is our second visit to Kuangukuangu. Kuangukuangu is in a very private setting under a camel thorn tree. We picked Sept. instead of Dec. because the weather was perfect. From the moment you arrive you are treated like royalty but at the same time you feel like you are in the middle of nowhere. Stunning views from the cabin... More

We were so looking forward to our 2 night stay but it was a bit underwhelming. It is not luxury. Hot at night and no insect screens on main windows so not able to cool down. Not even any cushions for outdoor seats. Old tin table and fairly basic cooking facilities. The BBQ pack was good. There was no lighting... More

Thank you for taking the time to review our property. We truly value the opinions of our customers and we apologize that we did not meet your expectations. Our feeling is that this kind of accommodation is not the one you were looking for. Kuangukuangu is not a lodge, nor a hotel; this is a unique cabin in the middle... More

A cabin in the middle of nowhere, lost at the very end of a nice and green valley, on the ground of a nice guesthouse held by very nice people. The silence, only the sound of nature, the kudus and zebras giving you a visit before sunset. In this magnificent and very exclusive context, a very comfortable cabin, with hot... More

We stayed at Kuangu Kuangu in November. Loved the isolation from the world and the peace and tranquility. A truly unique destination with outdoor kitchen area and shower with a view to the incredible night skies built amongst the boulders. Would definitely consider a return visit but not in Summer - just TOO hot - and we're Namibians and used... More

Thank you for your comments. We are happy you enjoyed the place. You are right about the heat, which can be aproblem in summer if there is no wind to cool. We plan to build a second roof, that will protect the inside of the cabin from the heat in summer. All the best in 2013! More

My husband and I stayed in June, 2012 for three nights and we both highly recommend this romantic retreat. The cabin is lovely, Willem's gin and tonics are sublime, Hannetje's food is superb, the game is plentiful, and the company is delightful. Make sure you have at least one dinner at Barchan Dune, though Hannetje's brai packs are delicious, too.

We loved KuanguKuangu and would/will stay there again in a heart beat! The bungalow is located near Barchan Dune Retreat, and you have the choice to bring your own food and cook it on the gas stove or over the fire, or to go to Barchan Dune Lodge for your breakfast and/or dinner. The shower and toilet are open to... More

We loved this very comfortable,charming chalet.It - and the nearby farmhouse - are invisible from the road,3km away - not that there's much traffic about anyway but we loved the safe isolation.

We stayed at Kuangu for 2 nights at the beginning of our trip to Namibia. We booked the cabin on the strength of the TripAdvisor reviews. We were not disappointed! This place is not for everyone, but it was perfect for us and by far our favourite accommodation for the whole trip. When you arrive the cabin looks slightly like... More
