Feel part of the Namib Desert with a stay at Desert Breeze Lodge in Swakopmund, enveloped by the silence of the oldest dunes in the world and the serenity of the Swakop River. Self-drive visitors and families who seek the out-of-town desert experience are in for plenty of delights.
Not only does the lodge border the Namib Desert dune belt, but the Swakopmund beach is only a few minutes away, as is the town centre. Here, the dunes are your playground, inviting travellers with desert excursions, sandboarding, quad biking, hot-air ballooning, and skydiving. Ride horses along the beach or paddle over the waves, and investigate some of Swakopmund’s town attractions. Day trips to Sandwich Harbour, the Spitzkoppe Mountains and the Cape Cross seal colony and Messum Crater can be organised at reception.
Massive basalt sculptures stand permanent guard over this desert destination, in between 12 en-suite Luxury Bungalows and one grand Villa, each with private sundeck from which to admire otherworldly dune vistas. Sophisticated yet quirky, the style of the lodge seeps from the rooms to the breakfast facilities on deck or indoors.
