30km (19 miles) south of Sesriem and the entrance to Namib-Naukluft-Nationalpark – virtually next door by Namibia’s vast spatial standards – Desert Homestead Lodge well located as a starting point for tours to Sossusvlei, or an oasis for a relaxing rest after visiting the world famous dunes.
The lodge is located in a private nature reserve adjoining the Namib Sand Sea UNESCO World Heritage Site and enjoy a wonderful frontier-like isolation in this incredible landscape.
There are 21 thatched guest houses and a family suite, each air conditioned, stretching out from the main homestead building. With shaded porches, they make for a fine setting for watching the sun rise and set over the mountain horizon.
The main lodge has indoor and outdoor dining space and cool swimming pool for cooling off in after a day exploring the desert on hikes or drives.
Desert Homestead Lodge is also famous for its horse safaris through the Namib desert which are suitable for experienced riders as well as beginners (under guidance of experienced riding instructors). Several riding tours lasting one or two days are offered with nights spent out in a tent camp under Namibia‘s beautiful starry sky.
