The NamibRand Nature Reserve is a privately owned reserve so access is exclusive to guests. Oryx, aardwolf, ostrich and the endemic Hartmann’s mountain zebra can be seen in the magnificent desert environment.

The split-level main lodge is an ensemble of glass and stone curves with walls of windows maximising the awesome desertscape. There are quiet hideaways, viewing decks, a bar, main sitting room and rim-flow pool. The NamibRand Nature Reserve is an International Dark Sky Reserve and staying here you can enjoy stargazing with a highly sophisticated telescope and resident astronomer.

Ten spacious stone and glass desert villas are located at the foot of a mountain overlooking an expansive Namib grass plain that leads into a sea of hills and red sand dunes. Each air conditioned suite is furnished to complement the majestic hues of the oldest living desert in the world and boasts a private verandah, split level sitting area with fireplace, star-viewing window above the bed, and an indoor and outdoor shower. The suites are also equipped with a personal bar, CD system and a spotting scope.

You can explore this area of the Namib Desert on nature drives and guided walks. A hot air balloon ride over Sossusvlei is highly recommended and is included when you spend three nights here in low season.
