About Desert Homestead Outpost
Desert Homestead Outpost is located within 7,000 hectares of nature reserve deep in the Namib Desert, offering relaxed hospitality with a natural atmosphere. Enjoy views of the baked landscape from the 12 houses or from the restaurant, lounge and pool area, which sits on the base of a mountain. Explore the dunes of Sossusvlei, horse ride through the desert, or head out on foot on a selection of nature walks and hikes. There's no experience quite like watching the sun set over the desert – always a highlight of any stay here.
The individual houses are comfortable and stylish, with thatched roofs, glass-fronted doors and windows overlooking this vast “empty place” – the real meaning of the word, Namib. Each house has its own private sleeping deck and sun terrace shaded by thatched roofing. There's also a great team of staff here and your hosts will be only too happy to advise you on the activities that will allow you to get the most out of your time here.
