Klein-Aus Vista - Eagle's Nest
Nowhere is the Namib Desert in sharper relief than at Klein-Aus Vista. Rocky mountains rise sheer into a cloudless sky and grassy plains, dotted with acacias, disappear over the horizon.
Klein-Aus Vista is about 120km east of Lüderitz on the southern edge of the Namib Naukluft Park. Accommodation comes in the form of self-contained chalets at Eagle's Nest, which are about 15 minutes away from the main lodge, Desert Horse Inn
Eagle's Nest contemplates the vast emptiness of the Namib Desert from delightful chalets built into and around a large rocky outcrop. The chalets are built from local stone and they have an open-plan design with a cozy fireplace, a small kitchen, en suite bathroom and a private verandah. You can choose to do your own cooking or eat at the Desert Horse Restaurant.
You're on your own out there, or at least it feels that way with only seven chalets and being a 7km drive from the main lodge and facilities. It might mean a short drive back and forth but when you are sitting with your feet up and day dreaming, lost in the endless views, the commute is well worth it.
Seven open-plan rock chalets (three doubles, three triples and a four bed unit), fireplace, kitchenette, en suite bathrooms, private verandah, barbecue facilities; fridge; ceiling fan; mini bar; safe; tea and coffee facilities; secure parking
'Geisterschlucht' Rock Cabin: self-catering; two family rooms (sleeping 4 pax each); lounge, kitchen with cutlery and crockery; outside bathroom with gas heated showers and organic toilets
Use of facilities at the Desert Horse Inn - reception; restaurant; bar; swimming pool; WiFi (100 MB free); mobile connectivity
With a guide, explore the southern Namib Naukluft Park on a scenic sunset drive or a desert tour (either full day or half day).
On your own, head off on a hiking trail, mountain bike trail, visit the feral horses at the Garub viewpoint or venture west to the old mining town of Luderitz on the coast and the abandoned Kolmanskop Ghost Town.
