At this place where fantasy meets reality, you'll find the Gondwana Collection safely positioned. Take our outstretched hand and let us introduce you to our extraordinary country, Namibia.

Explore this awe-inspiring wilderness from the warmth of our lodges, created with conservation cognizance and ample character. And return to relax after an exciting day of discovery. This is the Gondwana feeling: Namibia with heart and soul. Come and stay with us, experience Namibia.

Property info

Creatively constructed with sublime desert views, Desert Whisper is designed as a luxuriously special desert retreat for two. Inspired by nature and natural shapes, material and colors, your contemporary desert home is one that you may never want to leave. Pad around your open-plan lounge and dining area with its well-stocked bar and fully-equipped kitchen; to your bedroom and en-suite bathroom with their spectacular desert vistas. Soak up the scenery on the terrace with a glass of wine or steaming cup of coffee, and stroll along the wooden walkway to take a dip in the cool refreshing water of your personal plunge pool.

Neighborhood info

SOSSUSVLEI / SESRIEM This ancient desert tried to call attention to itself for 50-80 million years. It grew to 2000 kilometres long and nearly 200 kilometres wide, assembled lofty sand dunes and sculpted a range of artistically designed dunes in various shapes. It harboured flora and fauna in its sands and called the soft mist from the ocean to sustain them. It even welcomed the diamonds that had washed down the Orange River and into the Atlantic into its generous arms. And, no-one gave it a second thought. Finally, we are willing to receive the magnificence of the Namib Desert. Diamonds were discovered in the early 1900s, the Namib Sand Sea was proclaimed a World Heritage site in 2013 and thousands of visitors annually pay homage to the magnificence of Sossusvlei and Dead Vlei. If there is a place in Namibia where Gondwana lodges are not lacking, it is where the Namib tells its endless stories in breathtaking pictures, forms and colors. Here where the red sand ocean leads a hopeless battle for day-to-day survival against the burning sun, we have created unique havens of unforgettable moments: The Desert Grace, Namib Desert Lodge and Namib Dune Star Camp.
