Roughly halfway between Windhoek and Sossusvlei, Namib’s Valley Lodge is a great stopover if you really want to slow down the pace. It is small and intimate consisting of just six rooms and, while they are basic, they offer the necessities for a comfortable stay and a view that could rival any of the greats in the area.
The lodge is perched atop a rocky outcrop overlooking the Ghaub Valley of a Thousand Hills. Undulating hills and brilliant night skies is pretty much what this place is all about and you’ll be happy to stay as long as you can.
When people talk about a place being ‘good for your soul’, they are speaking about Namib’s Valley Lodge. It’s simple, down to earth and offers peace and tranquillity in abundance. It’s as if time stands still here with only the mesmerising sunrise and breath-taking sunset to tell you otherwise.
It isn’t fancy but that’s its charm. Well that and the view, which we keep mentioning. Stay at the lodge or camp, there are also 3 campsites, seemingly on the edge of eternity, each with their own ablution facilities (with hot water) and erected structures for shade.
Given the location, walking seems the obvious activity to do here and there are loads of trails to choose from. You can also head off on 4x4 trails or a simply sit and relax.
There’s a chance to encounter wildlife as most roam free from the neighbouring Namib-Naukluft Nature Reserve, there is an abundance of birdlife and of course there’s the adapted desert flora too.
