Where to begin? The philosophy here seems to be that even though you're in one of the most remote spots on the planet, you can still enjoy fine wine, gourmet dining, and impeccable service. I'm an amateur astronomer, so for me the best part of the Dunes Camp was the night skies. The Milky Way here has to be seen... More

Spent 2 nights here on or way through the Namibian desert and could not recommend more highly. The lodge has an incredible position on top of beautiful red dunes with immense desert scenery as the backdrop.
