Kwessi Dunes is located deep in Namibia’s striking NamibRand Nature Reserve, a vast desert wilderness of over 200,000 hectares. With its rolling desert plains and backdrop of craggy mountains and iconic red  dunes, this is a place where time seems to stand still and the space is never-ending. Here, it’s not about chasing big game but rather soaking  up the beauty of the colourful landscape, admiring the antelope that  scatter the sand, and gazing at the stars the light up the night sky.


At Kwessi Dunes, you’ll find 12 cool and comfortable (and air-conditioned) chalets all with canvas walls and thatched roofs. Each bedroom has a separate ‘star gazer’ room, completely open to the sky, and the perfect spot from which to watch the celestial theatre show above.


Views from the rooms, the main area and the swimming pool are of the vast, desert vistas and when you can bear to tear your eyes away,  enjoy quad biking, scenic drives and walks, hot air ballooning, helicopter flights, horse riding and day trips to Sossusvlei.

 

Rooms

1/2

A touch class within the Namib Desert,Kwessi Dunes features a cool and comfortable style with a few quirks along the way. 


In the bedrooms, you can expect vintage four-poster beds, striped canvas walls and a separate ‘star  gazer’ room that’s completely open to the sky for maximum galaxy-gazing as you fall asleep. Each bedroom also has an ensuite bathroom with both indoor and outdoor showers and a shaded, outdoor veranda. 


High thatched roofs will keep you cool during the hot desert days (and nights!) and you’ll be pleased to hear that the bedrooms are air conditioned too.


 

Facilities

The view from the lodge is spectacular and the glass windows and doors at the main area look out onto the undulating sand that only ends when it meets the mountains, far in the distance. 


Inside, there’s a well-stocked bar, library area and several seating and dining areas.  When the sun rises in the morning, head to the camp fire for a morning cuppa, whilst in the heat of the day, the swimming pool is the only place to be.
