Namib Naukluft Lodge The best spot to experience the living desert is on our 13,000 ha farm, which was pronounced as a private nature reserve in 1999 and hosts the upmarket Namib Naukluft Lodge. Stunning sceneries invite you to nature drives and walks. Enjoy your stay in unexpected comfort and friendly hospitality. The Lodge offers a variety of activities and we recommend a stay of two to three full days. Enjoy the ever-changing pastel colours of the beautiful Pro-Namib. Use the morning hours for an easy climb to the top of one of the adjacent granite hills or a walk in the vicinity. Explore the diverse flora and fauna, where the trees grow seemingly out of the stones. Relax at the crystal clear swimming pool during the heat of the day. In the late afternoon you may join a ‘sundowner’ – drive to the natural marble mountains on the farm. Listen to the evening sound of the barking gecko – a concert never to be forgotten. The clear night sky invites you to an unreal stargazing experience. Try to spot the Milky Way and the Southern Cross! We’ll show you the oldest desert on earth. Our friendly staff will make your stay unforgettable. Welcome to Namib Naukluft Lodge – your desert dream! Namib Naukluft Lodge offers 16 tastefully furnished rooms with en-suite facilities and a private, spacious patio with a striking view. Excellent traditional meals are served in the restaurant, on the adjacent verandah or in the boma from the open fire. The lounge and pool area offer a relaxed atmosphere after an active day in the desert. The Sossusvlei ExcursionOn a daily basis, an excursion to the popular dunes at Sossusvlei is offered. The tour is conducted by an Englishspeaking driver /guide in a 4 x 4 overland vehicle. Secure your seat and book in advance. An early morning rise, with a snack before leaving, enables you to arrive at Sesriem, the Park’s gate, at around sunrise. Enjoy this unique desert scenery with some of the highest dunes in the world. The dynamic and star-shaped dunes are ideal for the keen photographer. Climb one of the over 300 m high dunes and you will be overwhelmed by the view. A full breakfast is served under shady camelthorn trees. Visit the Sesriem Canyon before returning to the Lodge for lunch. The Naukluft Hiking TrailIf you are fit and active, we offer a 2 hour hiking trail in the mountains of this 13,000 ha private nature reserve. Your hike will be accompanied by one of our nature conscious guides. However, you may also walk it by yourself. The trail is accurately laid out, a map and a radio will ensure your safety during the hike. Extend your Sossusvlei Shuttle for another day to experience the Naukluft Mountains – the other side of the desert !

Me and my wife spent 2 nights in the lodge . We felt like home . This lodge is property of our special guide Sven and his family , of the extravaganza team. It was our honeymoon and Ian, the chef, prepare a special and lovely 5 course menu . We strongly suggest it. The lodges are clean, with al necessary staff and with a big window on the amazing view of the landscape.

Straight after the flight from Frankfurt we drove to Naukluft lodge and stayed two nights. That was a great choice. We could get used to the warm weather and country. Have a good sleep and did a great nature drive with the guide. Pool is nice to cook off and enjoy a lovely sunset on top of the rocks. Dinner was really good! Very friendly manager and staff and a chilled out place close to Sossusvlei.

Of the numerous lodges we stayed at in Namibia, this was our favorite. The location is stunning, with unobstructed desert views almost to the horizon from your room. The host went out of his way with his hospitality, and the kitchen is first-rate. There is a small, crystal-clear pool that shares the view of the desert. I picked this lodge because I had difficulty finding a room that could accommodate 3 adults (with 3 beds) within an hour of the entrance to Sossusvlei. This lodge had such a room. But now that I have stayed there, I would stay again regardless of the room setup. Our rooms were comfortable and quiet and we all got a good night's sleep.

Namib Naukluft, located close enough to the dunes for a day trip has great accommodations and meals. We used the Sossusvlei Shuttle to get from Windhoek to and from the Naukluft property. They picked us up at our hotel and returned us there on the third day. Totally easy and we had adequate time to explore and experience Dead Vlei, the dunes and Sossusvlei. The guide was very knowledgeable about the geology and wildlife so we felt we had an excellent exposure to this remarkable region. The meals were excellent, particularly the BBQ served out under the stars. If you are inclined, there is also great swimming pool overlooking the sparse landscape. If you want to be at the dunes as the sun rises you must stay inside the park gates but the experience, accommodations and food make this place special.

This property is an hour's drive north of Sossusvlei National Park. Is set on 25000 hectare property with loads of wildlife - some of which comes right up to your room's terrace. The property itself is very very well maintained, with very amicable & professional staff. I had a pleasant walk around a small section of the property, before cooling off in the beautifully cool swimming pool.

This was the best overall lodge of the four we stayed in in Namibia (although Ai Aibas came a very close second). Food was excellent and varied and the trips were great. The guides (Nelson & Berron) had a lot more knowledge and experience than those we encountered elsewhere.

We stayed at this lodge only 2 nights but wish we had stayed longer. The setting is stunning and very peaceful. There are a lot of animals that visit the hotel (large number of ground squirrels, birds and the occasional gemsbok and fox). The evening dinners were pricey but delicious. The rooms are nice and have large porches for enjoying a cool drink while watching the sunset. There is a beautiful small pool that is surprisingly cold.

A great lodge located just south of Solitaire. Clean rooms with a small terrace overlooking a waterhole and desert. Restaurant served braai and potjie in a picturesque open air area set next to a rocky hill. Staff are great and very helpful. When we found we had a puncture the staff were there immediately helping us. Highly recommended
