Why

The location of the lodge, with breath-taking view of the desert and ideal to reach Sossusvlei. The spectacle of the red dunes of Sossusvlei at dawn and at sunset. Quad biking in the NamibRand Nature Reserve, among elegant oryx and old fossilised dunes. The night sky: gazing at the stars and planets through the telescope.
