Sixteen thatched, stone and canvas suites, built in a combination of wood and glass, are designed to blend in seamlessly with their natural surroundings without compromising on luxury. A spacious bedroom with panoramic views leads to a well-sized en-suite bathroom (and a hot outdoor shower for the real desert experience) leads onto a wide verandah that’s perfect for crystal clear stargazing (if you’re not up on the roof of the main building learning about the night skies) or for sleeping out – highly recommended as an experience that should not be missed while on safari in this remote and very beautiful part of Africa as there’s nothing quite like waking up to the gentle rays of sunlight at dawn when the desert air is still crisp.Indoor and outdoor rooftop eating areas offer unparalled views for sundowners and meals together.
Wildlife is prolific in the floodplain and riverbed of a small tributary of the Huab River and along the valleys that are flooded during good rainy seasons. Desert-adapted elephants are well adjusted to living in this climate and terrain where the river greenery quickly becomes dry grassland leading to rocky canyons and rugged outcrops. Many species of antelope live here, and sometimes guest are lucky enough to spot black rhino and cheetah.
Birders will enjoy spotting species endemic to Namibia including the several Namibian endemics, such as Damara Hornbill, Carps Titand Rupells Korhaan.
Not to be missed is a trip to one of the most impressive and ancient historical spots: Twyfelfontein to see the San art and the largest collection of petroglyphs in Africa as well as the Damara Living Museum.
