Barchan Dune Retreat
your way to Sossusvlei you will find at Barchan Dune Retreat congenial hosts,
excellent cuisine and something special: a lodge built into a dune with
elegantly furnished rooms. Relax a day or two to at Barchan Dune Retreat to
enjoy the quietness of the mountains and the beautiful environment of the
Namib region, the boundless view over our valley from the sundowner bar on top
of the dune and at meal times from the dining room windows.
Hannetjie and Willem van Rooyen, your hosts, are originally from the north of Namibia, but many years ago fell in love with the Namib Desert around Sossusvlei. Today they love to show their guests this grand and beautiful countryside with its soft colours, the wide open planes, the mountains and the great dunes of the Namib. For recreation hosts offer farm drives, hiking trails, or you could climb our mountains in the morning to see the sun rise. They can take you up Spreetshoogte Pass for a sundowner and offer - for their guests exclusively - a drive to a farm for sundowner and watch the the sunset from this hill in the midst of the Namib Desert: a wonderful experience you will never forget.
Hosts offer a trip to Sossusvlei: an early start to be at Sossusvlei for the sunrise. A hearty breakfast follows, after which you can climb Dune No. 45, surrounded by the highest dunes in the world. After stopping at Sesriem Canyon proceed to Sesriem Camp to have a coffee break and then home to Barchan Dune Retreat for a late lunch.
