Situated in the peaceful solitude of an idyllic valley, in the heart of the desert, near Solitaire and Sossusvlei dunes, Kuangukuangu is the ideal place for travellers who seek tranquility and intimacy. Nestled in a dune, Kuangukuangu makes it possible for its occupants to live in harmony with nature, at the same time offering them comfort, luxury, adventure and relaxation. The starry sky in southerly direction will thus be visible to the naked eye, unobstructed, from the rock around which Kuangukuangu is built. Kuangukuangu comes from 'Omukuangukuangu', a word used by the Ovambo people, meaning the milky way. The Meals: You can, if you desire, take your meals at the farm situated at five minutes walking distance from Kuangukuangu (you must check in advance that your hosts will be able to accommodate you). The food and the warm welcome they offer are exceptional. You will be treated to such delicacies as excellent oryx steak, ginger spiced pumpkin soup, or delicious milk-tart (a Southern African specialty).
The Game Drive: You can also ask us to accompany you on a game-drive (pre-booking required). The farm has a rich fauna and flora. You will have the opportunity to see oryxs, warthogs, ostriches, horses, wild squirrels, des suricates and jackals, just to mention a few. Also possible (pre-booking required): round trip to Sossusvlei, safaris to nearby attractions (Spreetshoogte, Naukluft, Kuiseb Canyon) Hikes and Treks: Kuangukuangu is surrounded by a mountain range, a veritable natural geological marvel (gigantic rocks shaped by the climatic changes), which you can explore on foot (the dry river bed passes just behind). These rocky formations will reveal stunning and eccentric surprises to the attentive observer.
Rates: Accommodation: R1200 per night per Cabin.
