Set in open desert, this place mixes old and new. 15 private chalets sit between massive 150 million year old granite boulders. Everything’s been created to blend into the environment - including the pool which is landscaped into the rocks. The deck is split level and there’s a fire pit too. The sun sets in front of you, behind the Brandberg mountains, and there’s a 360 degree view to the boulders which are lit at night. It’s a long drive - 4 and a half hours from Windhoek and 3 from Swakopmund but it is closer than Mars. Which is a bonus.
The chalets are spaced out so you’ll see them but it’s up to you if you want to be sociable and wander back to the main lodge and pool.
Each chalet has a private bathroom and you’ll have your own deck. It’s all raised on stilts and connected by long, elevated walkways across the sand. You might want to hire a bike or make use of the golf cart shuttle to get back to base.
There’s a bit of grandeur with the zebra skin floor rugs and the decor is all icy blue drapes and white bed linen. Uber stylish. Your roof’s a tent so it might get flappy at night but grab your earplugs and just watch the stars unspoilt by light pollution.
There's a big eco emphasis here - it’s all about being responsible in a fragile environment.
There are: trips to archaeological sites including Bushman’s Paradise; horse riding with the option to overnight under the stars; photographic guided tours and self drive available; bike hire, biking tours and sunset biking tours.
Spitzkoppe has a diverse range of birds so if that’s your bag, you’ll be chuffed. 3 types of vultures, peregrine falcons, the list goes on.
Finally, this area is the big rock climbing destination in Namibia with over 100 sport and trad routes.
