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.

Then I realized that to be more alive, I had to be less afraid. So I did it. I lost my fear and gained my whole life.

Adventure may hurt you, but monotony will kill you.
Every man’s life ends the same way. It is only the details of how he lived and how he died that distinguish one man from another.
The only man I envy is the man who has not yet been to Africa — for he has so much to look forward to.
The tragedy of life is not that it ends so soon, but that we wait so long to begin it.
