Your tour guide is taking you into the desert again to the Dune Star Camp where you can sleep under the stars! The Dune Star experience is a one-night once-in-a-lifetime Namib Desert opportunity.

Namib Dune Star Camp is situated on the crest of ancient sand dunes overlooking the spectacular landscape of the Namib Desert. Best described as a soft adventure camp, Namib Dune Star Camp offers the thrill of being out in the desert yet provides luxuries like soft beds and hot showers. The intimate camp has nine cabins, with a fair distance between them. Each cabin has an en-suite bathroom, a large bedroom and a spacious deck. The rooms are equipped with a double bed that can be wheeled out for a night under the southern skies. Each room has an extra non movable single bed making it perfect for families or friends. Extra bedding is supplied for those cooler winter nights under the stars.

The central area’s wide balcony has unrivalled vistas and is the ideal place to sip on a sundowner drink as the sun bathes the landscape in gold. Sunset is followed by a delicious dinner under a blanket of twinkling stars. Namib Dune Star Camp is an eco-friendly camp where careful consideration has been taken in the design and construction to ensure that it leaves a minimum footprint. Solar panels on the cabins provide hot water and lights, and water is pumped from a nearby borehole. Hot water and electricity is limited and no fan, air conditioning or plug points (power sockets) are available. This means that guests are required to step lightly in the desert environment and be mindful of the resources.

Namib Dune Star Camp allows guests the privilege of spending time in the desert wilderness with its exceptional views, clean air, open spaces and bright starlit sky.
