The Elegant Desert Camp

The Elegant Desert Camp

In the ancient Namib Desert, surrounded by the majestic Tsaris Mountains and endless flat gravel plains, the tented Elegant Desert Camp is situated a mere 45km from Sesriem. Here the sky melts into the endless plains in a vista so vast it will take your breath away. Comprising only ten individual en-suite tents, nestled carefully amongst rugged boulders, this secluded little gem welcomes our guests to a world of vast spaces, endless horizons and jagged mountain heights. The utter tranquillity and extraordinary clarity of light make this area one of Africa’s most compelling landscapes.

From the large sundowner deck on top of the mountain, our crystal clear pool embedded between the rocks provides the most exquisite views of the awesome landscape unfolding before you. Swim in the refreshing rock pool or unwind with an ice-cold beer at the hand-crafted bar with 360° rotating hanging chairs. Just sit back, relax and let the magnificent views gently caress your soul.

We suggest that you treat yourself to a laidback lunch at the lodge with a bottle of fine South African wine from our extensive range, handpicked by the owners. In the afternoon you can unwind at the lodge or return to the camp to enjoy the magnificent vistas, both from your tents’ deck or the pool deck on the mountain side. Take a drink at our pool bar and recline to marvel at the sun-drenched desert plains. You might also opt for the scenic drive with spectacular views overlooking the vast gravel plains contrasted with the Tsaris and Naukluft mountain massifs of the Namib Desert

Dinner is a Namibian affair in our open sky Boma under infinite stars, next to a traditional fireplace where our legendary “braai” (barbeque) is prepared by our friendly and enthusiastic chefs.

We pride ourselves that The Elegant Desert Camp has minimal environmental impact. The building material used is 100 % removable and recyclable and much of it is biodegradable. For the gabion walls the natural occurring stones found here in abundance were meticulously selected and integrated. We took great care to make the Eco Camp 100% self-sustainable, harnessing the power of the sun for hot water and electricity, whilst our water comes from our own boreholes from sources deep beneath the earth. All waste generated is taken to the recycling plant in Windhoek.

All these thoughtful touches, our friendly and well-trained staff as well as the eerie silence and untouched landscapes will make your stay at The Elegant Desert Camp a truly memorable experience.
