The Namib Naukluft Lodge is a lodge focusing on the simplicity of life and admiring the granite hills and awe-inspiring views over the Namib desert plains speak for themselves.
Known for their friendly staff and relaxing environment, this is the perfect place to stop the buzz from the outside world and come to a place where the peace of the desert can soak in. In the main building of the lodge, guests can enjoy the creations of local artists while relaxing in a cosy lounge after a long day.
Naukluft camp has 16 en-suite rooms, this is the perfect place for the individual traveller or small groups. Appealingly decorated with earth tones, this getaway moves away from the frills to bring guests pure comfort with world-class mattresses and linen.
As an added benefit, all linen provided is hypo-allergenic. For those days in the hot Namib heat, all rooms are equipped with air-conditioners, with the convenience of a fridge.
To top it off, each room has a private viewing deck, allowing guests to gaze upon the moving views of the long stretching desert plains and the majestic granite hills of Namibia.
