Welcome to Desert Homestead Lodge

The Desert Homestead lies three kilometres northwest of the C19 and D854 roads junction, approx. 32km southeast of Sesriem. The wide grassy valley is sheltered by the Nubib, Tsaris and Naukluft mountains with a view reaching the distant dunes of the Namib Desert in the west.

In this exquisite position, we offer simple but stylish accommodation in thatched chalets which were designed with the fragile beauty of this remarkable environment in mind. The Desert Homestead will ensure you an unrivalled respite from the desert extremes.

Tranquil surroundings, Alfresco dining, delectably fresh farm cuisine, refreshing dips in the pool, stunning sunsets and sunrises are the basic pleasures at our lodge. And meandering across endless plains or discovering ancient water courses on a beautifully groomed steed is a magical and alternative way to appreciate our surroundings. The final remnants of each day sees nature at her most profound. Rugged landscapes bathed in hues of pastel a truly humbling experience.


You will experience a friendly and welcoming atmosphere at Desert Homestead. The living areas of the main lodge are all open plan, encouraging guests to move around freely. The most prominent feature is the well sheltered verandah where you can have a leisurely breakfast, lunch and dinner, candle-lit even on windy evenings.

Inside, you will find a cosy lounge with ethnic African decoration and comfortable leather sofas. Satellite television is available in a separate room and internet facilities for guests are available in the adjacent Curio shop. The bar is attended by a friendly, well educated and communicative barkeeper. And here chat to managers Charl and Daleen or hosts Louisa and Alex. Desert Homestead offers creative farm style cuisine with fresh vegetables from our desert gardens.

The swimming pool in front of the main building is good for a refreshing dip and well utilised throughout the year. Accommodation is offered in rustic thatched chalets, all lined up in a good distance from each other between the main lodge and the open grassland. Our staff are well trained and extremely friendly. Fine dining is also in the order of the day as our dishes are prepared with the finest touch.
