Namib Naukluft Lodge
The Namib Naukluft Lodge is backed by impressive granite hills with striking views over the open desert plains. It consists of 16 x en-suite rooms and offers the ideal gateway to the Namib Desert. The spacious interior is tastefully furnished without being overloaded with extra frills. The king-size or twin beds are furnished with Simmons – world-class mattresses dressed up with white percale cotton linen for exquisite comfort. All pillows and duvets are hyper allergenic for those with extra sensitivity. All rooms have air conditioning, and fridges, and offer a private veranda with inspiring views.
The main building offers a comfortable lounge exhibiting local decor items as well as original paintings, prints, and hand-woven carpets from local artists. Delicious traditional meals are served on the veranda. Or prepared by the chef on the open fire in the Lapa. This enhances the feeling of a very special desert evening. The bar and in winter; the fireplace offer a cozy round-up of a great and adventurous day.
In the early morning hours, when the desert seems to wake up and stretch, the sun giving its first tender light, it is the ideal time to go for an easy walk. Well-marked walking trails lead up the granite hill, around the mountain, or to the nearby – bird hide. It is the best time for the keen photographer! During the heat of the day after taking part in one of the excursions the best spot to linger is at the crystal clear swimming pool.
Soft Adventure Camp
The Soft Adventure Camp is located on the outcrops of the granite hill. Each unit is individually placed in order to keep an open view of the plains of the savannah. The 15 x chalets are based on a fixed structure with canvas partitions offering a spacious interior with en-suite facilities. The canvas gives you the feeling of a ‘close to nature’ tented camp, yet the fixed structure offers the protection of a plain and rustic room. All chalets have a water-cooler system and air ventilation. Shaded space in front of the bungalows enables you to enjoy your view during the early morning hours or during sunset.
Walkways lead to the centrally located main building. The main building is based on the top of the hill. The bar offers cold beverages and the light wind offers a nice cool breeze during the heat of the day. It is also the dining area; where dinners are a special event: Watch the chef prepare your meal right in the center of the boma. It is a traditional meal, the celebration of the day, and a social get-together with new friends. A splash pool is right on site, nestled in the rocks. It offers you the desired refreshment after an adventurous day! During the course of the day, you may want to participate in any of the guided excursions or just relax and enjoy the beautiful desert scenery. The nearby waterhole attracts springbok, ostrich, and zebra and gives a peaceful impression.
