The Desert Homestead is a tranquil and unfussy lodge near Sossusvlei. While close to Sesriem and Sossusvlei The Desert Homestead is more about a tranquil experience of the Namib Desert on horseback than the spectacle of the great sand dunes. The lodge is made up of beautiful thatch-roofed pastel-walled chalets that lend themselves to the quiet charm of this magical region. Private verandas look out over the plain that is framed by craggy mountains in every direction. 20 thatched chalets; en-suite bathroom; private veranda; swimming pool; restaurant; bar; separate TV lounge. Activities include Sunrise and sunset rides wind through riverbeds, over hills, and across endless plains soaking up the remarkable terrain and its birds, plants, and animals. The effect is sublime. Morning outings turn back after an almighty continental breakfast taken beneath the rising sun; evening outings culminate atop a vantage point with the setting sun and the tinkle of ice on glass. If you seek a bit more adventure, try the overnight sleep-out or the multi-day trek that is nothing short of sheer decadence.
Guests will be met by their pilot at the Windhoek airport from where they fly south-west over the Namib Naukluft Mountains to the desert floor (about 50 minutes), Transfer to the lodge for the evening, AM early morning rise for the morning excursion to Sossusvlei, Dead Pan, Dune 45 and many more amazing areas, PM relax, join one of the afternoon activities or optional sunset sundowners, fly back to the Windhoek airport (time to be advise by reception) where this excursion ends.
