Kwessi Dunes

Kwessi Dunes is located in the heart of Namibia’s stunning NamibRand Nature Reserve, a huge desert wilderness of more than 200,000 hectares. With the reserve's wide desert plains and backdrop of rocky mountains and stunning red dunes, this is a destinantion where time seems to stand still and the space is never-ending. Here, it’s not about chasing big game but rather appreciating the stunning colourful landscape, admiring the antelope that scatter the sand, and watchinh the stars that light up the night sky.

Kwessi Dunes has 12 cool and homely chalets with air conditioner, stylish canvas walls and thached roofs that help keep the chalets cooler during hot summer days and warmer during cold winter days. Each bedroom has a separate ‘star gazer’ room, completely open to the sky, and the perfect place from which to watch the celestial theatre show above. You get clear views
of the wide desert vistas from the rooms, the main area and the swimming pool. Guests also have the opportunity to enjoy quad biking, scenic drives and walks, hot air ballooning, helicopter flights, horse riding and day trips to Sossusvlei.

  • Lovely getaway

    My sister and I enjoyed our overall experience in the Kwessi Dunes Lodge. Service was great and the staff was friendly and had good attention to detail. Our guide, Rocky, was very kind and knowledgeable. We hope to be back with the rest of our family soon review

  • Beautiful Place

    Where the Dunes and Mountain views greet you with an array of earth tones along with an abundance of oryx at the watering hole. Great hospitality from the friendly staff rounded off with even better food. Not to mention stargazing from the skybed. Till we meet again Kwessi Dunes review

Kwessi Dunes impact highlights

Kwessi Dunes pride themselves in being a part of Africa’s conservation solution. 1.5% of turnover goes towards conservation projects which directly impact the area. Conserving the pro-Namib, the area along the eastern edge of the Namib Desert, is very important in order to facilitate seasonal migratory wildlife routes and to conserve biodiversity. Through the NamibRand Conservation Foundation Natural Selection’s guests are helping to fund environmental conservation, education and research.
