There is something extraordinarily special about the landscape around Klein-Aus Vista.It is where streaks of Namib sand merge with the bleached grasses of the Pro-Namib in a sensuous slow dance of splendour.
The lodge, nestled in the rocky Aus Mountains, is famed for its extensive and lovely vistas, best seen from one of the mountain bike or hiking trails, a viewpoint above the Klein-Aus Vista campsite or from the secluded Eagle’s Nest Chalets. Contributing to the scenery, the Wild Horses of the Namib remind us of untethered freedom and appeal to our soul to embrace the wonderful adventure of life in its entirety.
Desert Horse Inn is imbued with the energy of the horses, adding a spirited component to the warmth of the family-owned lodge. As the pastel landscape transforms into desert en route to Lüderitz and the coast, there is the abandoned diamond mining town of Kolmanskop to visit where disintegrating houses are a photographer’s playground, a desert town to discover and fascinating promontories to explore. For the more adventurous we recommend our rustic Geisterschlucht Cabin.
The modern guesthouse Desert Horse Inn at the main receptions offers comfortable rooms, tastefully decorated, with spacious en-suite bathrooms. Relax with a sundowner on the wooden deck overlooking the farm before savouring your delicious 3 course meal in the country cuisine restaurant. Gather around the Wild Horse Bar where strangers become friends or loosen up in the lounge around the fire place.
For those who appreciate the outdoors, the 10 site camping area is 1,5km from reception. The camp, lying in a picturesque valley and fitted with modern and clean amenities, is an ideal stopover to unwind. Eagle’s Nest Lodge overlooking the Namib Desert,a mere 15 minute’s drive from reception and restaurant you will find the unique natural rock chalets, built around gigantic granite boulders. each open-plan chalet has it’s own cozy fire-place, kitchenette, en-suite facilities and private verandah.
