Desert Homestead Lodge


The Desert Homestead lies approx. 32km southeast of Sesriem. The wide grassy valley is sheltered by the Nubib, Tsaris and Naukluft mountains with a view reaching the distant dunes of the Namib Desert in the west. In this exquisite position, we offer simple but stylish accommodation in thatched chalets which were designed with the fragile beauty of this remarkable environment in mind. The Desert Homestead will ensure you an unrivalled respite from the desert extremes. Tranquil surroundings, Alfresco dining, delectably fresh farm cuisine, refreshing dips in the pool, stunning sunsets and sunrises are the basic pleasures at our lodge. The living areas of the main lodge are all open plan, encouraging guests to move around freely. The most prominent feature is the well sheltered veranda where you can have a leisurely breakfast, lunch and dinner, candle-lit even on windy evenings. Inside, you will find a cosy lounge with ethnic African decoration and comfortable leather sofas. Satellite TV is available in a separate room and internet facilities for guests are available in the adjacent curio shop. The bar is attended by a friendly, well-educated and communicative barkeeper. Desert Homestead offers creative farm style cuisine with fresh vegetables from our desert gardens.
