Luxury Namibia Safari Lodges A curated selection of Namibia's best safari lodges

From rugged Damaraland to sandy Sossusvlei, Namibia’s subtly varied desert terrain can be enjoyed from several fine luxury safari lodges. Browse through our curated selection of desert havens, and see which one entices you to visit this unique wilderness.

The immense scale of Namibia’s desert vistas conceals some delightfully intimate lodges, camps and sanctuaries. It’s no exaggeration to describe luxury Namibia safari lodges as oases; after all, they provide havens of comfort and indulgence amid some truly dramatic landscapes.

Much like the diamonds reputed to be buried beneath the shifting sands, many of the best accommodation options in Namibia might be classed as hidden gems. But look no further, because our team of safari experts has done the digging for you and uncovered some real treasures.

The style of most luxury Namibia safari lodges blends the best elements of beach villa and Bedouin encampment. In arid regions where life seems to barely cling on, you can enjoy channelling your inner nomad without the least discomfort.

Clever design features capture elusive desert zephyrs, while the almost modest colour schemes seem to be at pains not to detract from their surroundings.

Not that that would be an easy task: Namibia’s skyscraper dunes and jagged peaks could dwarf any human structure. That, of course, is one of the main reasons to come here: to get a sense of the magnificence of Nature, and of our own insignificance.

Whether you come to Namibia in search of hardy desert-adapted wildlife or your true self, you may well find more than you bargained for in luxury Namibia safari lodges.
