Hotels in Namibia
This safari property, the countries most luxurious compound, sits on a hillside of pockmarked boulders and giant cacti. The infinity pools almost make the property seem too glamorous for its setting.
Quad biking over the ocher dunes, nature walks with a naturalist, and astronomer-led sky views in the rooftop observatory are just some of the options at this secluded andBeyond lodge situated deep in the heart of Namibia’s ancient desert.
The main lodge features brushed-metal sconces, Middle Eastern lanterns, and long mirrors in distressed wooden frames. Two of each guest room’s walls are made of canvas; they can be opened to reveal a mesh window that makes the plains look like an Impressionist painting.
Little Ongava’s sister property is a less-expensive 14-room option.
The property is a string of 10 wood-and-canvas cottages linked by walkways set with large lanterns and potted cacti; the aboveground pool is shaded by a sailcloth awning. For minimal impact on the environment, the entire camp was designed using only wood and canvas.
In 2007, the Fort at Fischer’s Pan opened in Etosha National Park. This exotic structure—tall, thick walls; massive studded doors; multiple patios; secret staircases—sits on the edge of a large watering hole.
A luxury tented adventure lodge on an exclusive concession of 600,000 pristine acres.
This remote compound of four luxury tents is set between gigantic granite boulders. Days here are spent hiking or on scenic drives; at sunset, cocktails are served atop the highest ridge.
