Sossusvlei & NamibRand | Namibia

Desert Homestead Lodge

The wide grassy valley in which the lodge is situated is sheltered by the Nubib, Tsaris and Naukluft Mountains with a view reaching the distant dunes of the Namib Desert in the west. In this exquisite position, the lodge offers simple but stylish accommodation in thatched chalets which were designed with the fragile beauty of this remarkable environment in mind.

Desert Homestead Lodge will ensure you an unrivalled respite from the desert extremes. Tranquil surroundings, al fresco dining, delectably fresh farm cuisine, refreshing dips in the pool, stunning sunsets and sunrises are the basic pleasures at the lodge. And meandering across endless plains or discovering ancient water courses on a beautifully groomed steed is a magical and alternative way to appreciate your surroundings. The final remnants of each day see nature at her most profound. Rugged landscapes bathed in hues of pastel ... a truly humbling experience.

Time your visit with Namibia's seasons

Namibia's seasons follow a typical Southern Africa pattern, however with the desert landscapes the 'wet season' is rarely wet at all. The cooler winter months do however offer a nice respite from what can be very warm summer months.

Namibia’s climate varies across the country. For the best game viewing in Etosha National Park, we would recommend visiting during the dry season between June and October.

November to February is the best time to see flamingos gather at lagoons in eastern Swakopmund. It’s also a great time to visit the Caprivi strip in the north.

Southern Namibia has a much more stable climate and receives very little rain throughout the year. When a rare downpour does start during summer between January to March, the thin, baked soil turns into a stunning blanket of green.
