Escape from the world. A short drive leads you into a vast desert wilderness and to nine wooden cabins. After the dunes have transformed to gold and the distant mountains glow purple, it’s time to wheel beds onto balconies for a night under the glittering sky of the Namib.
Namib Dune Star Camp
Namib Dune Star Camp is situated on the crest of ancient sand dunes overlooking the spectacular landscape of the Namib Desert. Best described as a soft adventure camp, Namib Dune Star Camp offers the thrill of being out in the desert yet provides luxuries like soft beds and hot showers. The intimate camp has nine cabins, with a fair distance between them. Each cabin has an en-suite bathroom, a large bedroom and a spacious deck. The rooms have a double bed designed to be wheeled out for a night under the southern skies. Extra bedding is supplied for those cooler winter nights under the stars. An additional non-moveable single bed makes the cabin a perfect home for either families or friends. At the end of the day, make your way to the wide central deck for unrivalled vistas of the breath-taking scenery. Sip on a sundowner drink as the sun bathes the landscape in gold.
Sunset is followed by a delicious dinner under a blanket of twinkling stars. Namib Dune Star Camp is an eco-friendly camp where careful consideration has been taken in the design and construction to ensure that it leaves a minimum footprint. Solar panels on the cabins provide hot water and lights, and water is pumped from a nearby borehole. Nature provides the rest. This is an opportunity for guests to be mindful of resources and to step lightly in the delicate desert environment.
