Certificate of Excellence
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, 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.

Hi Alexander, Thank you for contacting us. Reservations for Namib Dune Star Camp are only made when you have booked with Namib Desert Lodge, hence Dune star Camp arrangements are made at the Lodge itself. Kind regards, Koney
