We stayed for two nights at KuanguKuangu and would thoroughly recommend it. Two nights gives you a full day to unwind and appreciate the solitude and beauty of the place.
Willem and Hannetjie at the nearby Barchan Dunes are very friendly and welcoming but leave you completely undisturbed if that's what you want- the cabin is not visible from the lodge but is 25mins away by foot if required.
The closest shops really are a loooooong way away, so if you are planning to go down the self catering route, stock up on everything in Windhoek (there is a decent sized fridge at the cabin plus a good range of cooking equipment and utensils). Alternatively, Willem and Hannetjie provide excellent breakfasts, lunch and dinner and also BBQ packs. We also did the evening drive with Willem, which was a very good way to see oryx, zebra and other animlas whcih would otherwise be more difficult to see. Sunset over the desert with a stiff G&T in your hand is an experience not to be forgotten!
