Desert Hills Lodge is our flagship venue. As the name implies, the lodge gracefully perch on a natural stone outcrop, generously spoiling its guests to spectacular views of the desert below and the dramatic Namib sunset. As the sun sets, it sends its long red tendrils of delight into each of the 18 chalets. Within each stone ensconced thatch chalet contain all the indulgences befitting a modern traveller and have an aesthetic essence about them which instantly ignites any city-numbed imagination.
Desert Hills is the perfect place to use as a base for exploring the area or spending time in its serenity and think the thoughts you’ve forgotten to think. Sossusvlei and Sesriem is a stone throw away and top of your day with delectable cheese and wine in the cellar, a heavenly sundowner, glorious dining, and the kind of sleep Morpheus would be proud of.
Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming “Wow! What a Ride!”
Reminds me of my safari in Africa. Somebody forgot the corkscrew and for several days we had to live on nothing but food and water.
Oh, the places you’ll go.
There are no foreign lands. It is the traveler only who is foreign.
Better to see something once than to hear about it a thousand times.
The gladdest moment in human life is a departure into unknown lands.
As soon as I saw you, I knew adventure was going to happen.
Life movies pretty fast, if you don’t stop and look around every once in a while, you could miss it.
And into the forest I go, to lose my mind and find my soul.
Of all the books in the world, the best stories are found between the pages of a passport.
