Thank you for your feedback. I will pass this onto Andrew and follow up. We've always had very good reports about him otherwise.

If you are looking for complete privacy and a breakaway from city life and society, you cant get any better than this. Peace and quiet in between the dunes of the Namib, with birds and Oryx drinking on your doorstep at the waterhole. The camp...More

What a beautiful spot! We had an awesome time and thoroughly enjoyed the views and peace and quiet. Our only regret was not having time enough to stay for more than the one night stopover! We will be back!

About
Description
This converted deserted home of Karakul sheep farmers is remotely situated in south-western Namibia, on the stunning NamibRand Nature Reserve. It lies about 110 km south of Sossusvlei accessible in a normal 2x4 More vehicle. The Hideout is simply yet comfortably equipped for self-catering groups of up to 10 people. Two private Campsites for up to 8 people each are nestled a kilometre away in the dunes, with own ensuite ablutions. Solar energy is used for lighting, water pumping and heating. Enjoy the spectacular views over the vast plains and ancient blue mountain ranges, set out on foot or by 4x4 into the glowing red dunes for a close encounter with the fascinating variety of Namib Desert fauna and flora. The kids will love the dune-boarding and endless open spaces. Both the house and the campsite boast a small water-hole just a few metres away, attracting a myriad of birdlife and wildlife. The exceptional surroundings and clarity of the air provide endless opportunities for photography by day and stargazing by night. Guided drives and 4x4 self-drive trail are available. A portion of your overnight costs goes towards the conservation of this unique and fragile environment. Less
