  • Description
  • Facilities
The Desert Homestead and Horse Trails offers simple but stylish accommodation in thatched chalets which were designed in keeping with the fragile beauty of this remarkable environment.

We offer tranquil surroundings, al fresco dining, delectably fresh farm cuisine, refreshing dips in the pool, stunning sunsets and sunrises and 20 thatched, en-suite chalets, all luxuriously decorated in pale linen and dark wood riempie furniture. Each unit has its own verandah under a latte canopy with views extending to the Rotterkaum Mountains - the ideal retreat after a busy day in the dunes.

You will experience a friendly and welcoming atmosphere at Desert Homestead. The living areas of the main lodge are all open plan, encouraging guests to move around freely. The most prominent feature is the well-sheltered verandah where you can have a leisurely breakfast, lunch and dinner, candle-lit even on windy evenings. Inside you will find a cosy lounge with ethnic African décor and comfortable leather sofas. Satellite TV is available in a separate room and Internet facilities are available at the adjacent Curio shop. The homestead also offers sundowner drives, horse riding, guided walks, Sossusvlei and Naukluft excursions.

4 Reviews on The Desert Homestead & Horse Trails

Comparing with our first visit five years ago, not bad, but nothing special. Clean rooms, but in details are visible some cracks/damages in the lodge, not all systems are working well... But it is Africa!


15 September 2013

Beautiful room with a spectacular view. Nice pool. Nice beds. No electricity in the room. You can only load your cellphone, camera, ... at a central place in the lobby of the lodge. 35 km away from the entrance of Sossusvley. Dinner was ok but we have eaten much better at other places.

Very nice accommodation with excellent and delicious meals. Especially the meals are more expensive. Very good service.

The Desert Homestead is really an oasis, with its luxuriously decorated rooms and highly competent, friendly staff. I did expect a bit more for the price we payed though, like air conditioning in the rooms. A ceiling fan is no match for the desert heat.
