On the fringes of the vegetated Kalahari Desert in southern Namibia and within it’s own private nature reserve sits Kalahari Red Dunes Lodge.
Made up of of just 12 spacious guesthouses and a beautiful main area, this lodge is the perfect stopover for those heading further south to the Fish River Canyon. It can work equally well for a couple of nights on the way to the Namib-Naukluft National Park, as it is well worth visiting in its own right.
Aside from the superior house, which is larger and has it’s own private plunge pool, the other 11 guesthouses have the same facilities, but each with their own character.
They are arranged around a dry lake or vlei, which is popular with the local wildlife, so just relaxing on your private deck can yield some nice sightings. Each of the individual guesthouses are named after one of the large mammals that you might find in the area, such as the oryx, the giraffe or the eland. It goes to show just how diverse this part of the Kalahari can be.
For those who want a little more adventure and exploration than the comfortable accommodation at Kalahari Red Dunes, the lodge offers an overnight trans-Kalahari walk, which we really recommend for those looking to investigate the environment in more intimate detail. After an initial night spent in the lodge head out on a full day hike with your expert guides and enjoy a picnic lunch among the dunes. Continue to walk in the afternoon, to the luxurious dunes camp, where you will spend the night, before a short hike after breakfast the following morning back to the main lodge.
