Summary

About

Recommended for:
Desert | Safari | Wildlife

Location

The chalets are uniquely located where the Pro-Namib merges with desert sands. This means views of an ecosystem quite unlike anywhere else in the world as rugged granite-gneiss mountains form a backdrop to sweeping plains full of subtle colour. The Namib Desert, which lends its name to the country, is home to antelopes, ostriches and even desert elephants. At night, thanks to the lodge’s remote location, guests can enjoy the spread of the Milky Way above them.

Accommodation

Each private wooden chalet is built individually and incorporates naturally formed boulders into their design. The accommodation is self-sustaining with everything from en suite bathrooms to a self-catering kitchen and outdoor barbecue. The fireplace completes the feeling of cosy self-dependence. Also, each chalet’s veranda boasts expansive views of the desert – the perfect place to relax after a day’s hiking.

Dining

Guests can choose whether to cook for themselves or eat at the Desert Horse Inn restaurant at Eagle’s Nest’s reception. The restaurant serves plentiful buffets with a wide variety of dishes and a mix of traditional and western food to suit all tastes. If cooking, guests have a choice of the fire, barbecue or the humble kitchen. On request the lodge can provide generous barbecue packs of local meats for you to grill at your chalet. There’s also takeaway breakfasts and lunches to fuel day-hikes into the surrounding mountains.

Facilities

With mountain bikes available for rent, there’s several biking and hiking trails mapped around the lodge that give you glimpse of what is the oldest desert in the world. Eagle’s Nest also puts on tailored half day and full day desert tours, in which informative guides help you locate local wildlife and tell you a bit about the region’s rich history. The lodge also organises day trips to Lüderitz, a colonial harbour with a variety of sea-life, and Kolmanskop, an eerie ghost town once the site of a rich mining village. Upon your return, the newly renovated pool and bar area is the perfect way to unwind after a long day spent exploring.
