page title icon The Best Glamping Namibia: Desert Hills Lodge

Planning a glamping trip to Namibia? If you’re looking to get away, explore Namib desert and have once in a lifetime glamping Namibia experience then look no further than Desert Hills.

Namibia has no shortage of natural wonders. Namib Naukluft National Park, located in one of the world’s oldest deserts Namib, boasts sand dunes, mountain ranges, stunning canyons and amazing wildlife.

Popo Falls are a series of beautiful water rapids of the Okavango River located at the entrance of the Bwabwata National Park with many campsites around and rich flora and fauna. Sossusvlei is well-known for its tallest and most beautiful sand dunes.

Spreetshoogte Pass is a road built by hand between Rehoboth and Solitaire, known for its sharp bends, steep gradients and panoramic views of the Namib desert. A must-visit is Etosha National Park, a wildlife park where you can see passing herds of game. The park boasts the wildlife – “big five” and hundreds of other mammal species and birds.  

Kaokoland is one of the last wilderness parts of Namibia and it looks like 100 years ago with plenty of wildlife and Himba people who still remained unaffected by the modern world.

These are just some of the highlights of the beautiful Namibia. The whole country boasts stunning landscapes, wilderness areas, wildlife and no wonder glamping Namibia is so popular. 

One of my favourite areas in Namibia is a Namib Desert with its stunning dunes, magnificent open spaces, rich wildlife and some amazing glamping sites offering luxury accommodation with many activities to experience the best of the area.

Guest reviews:

“We stayed here for a couple of nights whilst we explored sossusvlei. It was a good location to get out into the dunes. The huts and buildings are stunning and the views out are great – particularly for star watching in the evening. The food was nice and the staff very friendly.”

“Wonderful views from the lodge, staff was very helpful and friendly, food (game steak) was really juicy and spiced in a nice way. The housing is something special, and you just do not want to leave.”

“Rooms are well laid out and comfortable. Thatch roof gives a warm, cozy feeling, especially during winter. Huge bathrooms, and not to mention the views ! The kind of place you will visit over and over.”
