Namtib Desret Lodge

Lodge in Aus

In the beautiful Tirasberge, the private Namtib Biosphere Reserve is run by ecologically conscious owners who’ve created a self-sustaining farm in a narrow valley, with distant views of the Namib plains and dune sea. The rooms are tastefully turned out and comfortable. To reach the reserve, take the C13 north of Aus for 55km, then turn west on the D707; after 48km, turn east onto the 12km farm road to the lodge.

There is an incredible wealth of nature on display here, and it’s certainly worth spending a night or two getting acquainted with all the empty space.
