Desert Homestead Outpost

The Desert Homestead Outpost is situated in same 7,000ha nature reserve as the Desert Homestead Lodge, with mountains overlooking the vast grasslands and Naukluft Mountains. We are surrounded bei ‘vleis’ (pans), from the top of the highest dune you will have spectacular views of Naravlei, Cessna Pan and the rocky ridges of Witberg. We also have the Deadvlei with its white floor and much-photographed dead camelthorn trees situated more to the south. Our main area features a swimming pool, bar, lapa with on-site restaurant, laundry service and safety deposit box at the reception. At the top of the lodge we have a sundowner deck, which invites spectacular sunsets or amazing sunrises. Our kitchen serves deliciously fresh, farm-style food by candlelight inside or outside on the wide veranda, under the beautiful Namibian sky.
