Kwessi Dunes

  • 1 accommodation option

Kwessi Dunes is located deep in Namibia’s striking NamibRand Nature Reserve, a vast desert wilderness of over 200,000 hectares. With its rolling desert plains and backdrop of craggy mountains and iconic red dunes, this is a place where time seems to stand still and the space is never-ending. Here, it’s not about chasing big game but rather soaking up the beauty of the colourful landscape, admiring the antelope that scatter the sand, and gazing at the stars that light up the night sky.

At Kwessi Dunes, you’ll find 12 cool and comfortable (and air-conditioned) chalets all with canvas walls and thatched roofs. Each bedroom has a separate ‘star gazer’ room, completely open to the sky, and the perfect spot from which to watch the celestial theatre show above. Views from the rooms, the main area and the swimming pool are of the vast, desert vistas and when you can bear to tear your eyes away, enjoy quad biking, scenic drives and walks, hot air ballooning, helicopter flights, horse riding and day trips to Sossusvlei.

Conservation story

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

  • 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

  • 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
