Scaling a ridge in the Marienfluss Valley and its central lodge built above the rapids of the Kunene, this is wild luxury at its best. The views are staggering with the colours constantly shifting into new ones depending on the time of day. Seven standalone wood and canvas rooms envelop you in the arid beauty at the same time delivering fine linen, a private terrace, indoor and outdoor showers, and a naturally stylish and eco-friendly ambience.

Bathe in incredible views, cool off in the pool, and dine on delicious African-Italian fusion food in all the remote splendour and under starry night skies.
