Desert Homestead Lodge

Discover Desert Homestead Lodge

Set right on the doorstep of Namib-Naukluft National Park, not far from Sossusvlei, Desert Homestead is ideally suited for exploring the Namib Sand Sea - a World Heritage Site with some of the highest dunes in the world. The lodge offers a laid-back atmosphere, panoramic views, extensive pool and terrace facilities and a host of activities.

Desert Homestead Lodge offers 26 cottages including 1 family cottage. The architecture is a contemporary interpretation of a stud farm's manor house. Sophisticated furnishings and fittings in the main building as well as the guest cottages echo the theme. The main building houses the restaurant, lobby and lounge.
