Namib Dune Star Camp is an add-on to a stay at Namib Desert Lodge, offering an experience of sleeping out under the stars for a night. An intimate camp set high up on the red dunes of the Namib Desert with views out over plains and rugged mountains in the distance.
Namib Dune Star Camp is a slow 30-minute drive away past petrified desert and desert wildlife along a sandy track.
Rooms And Suites
Nine wooden cabins all offer spectacular views, wooden sleeping decks and en-suite bathroom facilities. Cabins are within an easy walk from the central guest area and are spaced far enough apart to ensure a reasonable amount of privacy (although one can see your neighbours).
All double beds are fitted with wheels, and in the evening, under the Namib stars, your bed can be wheeled out onto the wooden deck. Bedding is suitable for all seasons; for those summer nights, the bedding is light, and for those winter nights, the bedding is heavy to keep you warm and toasty.
Cuisine And Wine
Dinners and breakfast are prepared in the kitchen by a team well known for their delicious offerings. Dinners are a three-course affair as well as a full breakfast with hot and cold options; both meals are served up in the dining area.
Only breakfast is included in the nightly rate; one has to pay in advance for the dinner back at Namib Desert Lodge.
The central guest area at Namib Dune Star Camp is small and compact, with a large wooden deck and an indoor dining area. The views from here are nothing sort of spectacular, with a 180+ degree panorama unlike any lodge in the area has to offer.
The toilets around the corner from the central guest area offer probably the best views of any toilets the team at Uyaphi.com has ever seen. A loo with a view is an understatement.
The camp is completely eco-friendly, with solar panels for hot water and electricity, while water is from a borehole located nearby.
Activities are based around short morning and afternoon nature walks in and around the surrounding dunes. The camp is more about sleeping under the stars and the amazing desert scenery than an activity base; put another way, an evening here is an activity.
Families with children older than 12 years of age are most welcome; unfortunately, under 12 years of age are not accommodated.

With only nine cabins available, be sure to book early!
