The lodge has incredibly expansive views for 360 degrees of stark Damaraland scenery. Sunsets here are epic! Sleep out under the stars for a star display like you will never see again. Spend some quiet time on the deck and you may perhaps see a herd of specially adapted desert Elephants.

This area does not hold large concentrations of wildlife. Though, what seems to be a bleak environment is incredibly home to a range of wildlife. These include desert-adapted Elephant, Gemsbok, Springbok and a variety of other species. Rare sightings include Bat-Eared Fox and the occasional glimpse of Black Rhino and Cheetah. Birdlife is excellent with several Namibian endemics, such as Damara Hornbill, Carp’s tit and Rüpell’s Korhaan.

Children of all ages are accommodated and are permitted to participate in activities with all other guests. Children between 06 and 16 years of age must share with at least one adult in the same tent. The minimum age for walking activities is 13 years.
