A polished desert diamond in Namibia

Klein-Aus Vista Desert Horse Inn rests peacefully at the foot of the Aus Mountains, where the Namib Desert merges with golden grasses. The rich sienna of land and home tells tales of bronzed war-time buccaneers and almost-forgotten diamond dreams. 

Spread over a 10-hectare farm in the Klein-Aus Vista Reserve—2km west of Aus and 115km east of coastal Luderitz—this lodge is the perfect starting point for exploring south-western Namibia. Take excursions to a deserted diamond mining town; hike trails through granite mountains; find relics at the Koichab Dune Belt and Camelthorn tree forest; and don’t miss a trip into the southern Namib Naukluft Park to view the feral horses that have roamed the area for seven generations.

Exhausted from all the exciting activities on offer, return to Desert Horse Inn and unwind on the upstairs wooden deck, around the lounge fireplace, or at the Wild Horse bar, restaurant, and swimming pool. Accommodation is attractive in late-century farmhouse style, with a choice of rock bungalows, each with private veranda; modern guesthouse with sundowner deck; self-catering cabins, ideal for families or backpackers; and campsites with great amenities.
