A Tranquil Oasis in the Namib Desert: The Desert Shack

If you seek solitude and rest in the heart of the desert, look no further than The Desert Shack. Whether you’re an artist yearning for inspiration or a couple in search of a private retreat to witness your own African sunset over sprawling grape vines and the enchanting moon landscape, you might find yourself believing you’re alone on an undiscovered planet or the solitary observer on the moon. Prepare yourself for an essential escape to the panoramic views of the Moon Landscape, nestled on the fringes of the Namib Desert.

The Desert Shack is a contemporary, stand-alone cabin that caters to your every need, making relaxation its top priority. Situated a mere 20km from Swakopmund, at the River Plots, this space is a haven for couples, professionals, and anyone who values cherished solitude. It provides a serene setting and serves as a platform for countless activities. Prepare to embark on an off-the-grid living experience with no curtains, ensuring you become one with the desert.

The space itself rests on a 10-hectare smallholding known as Lillipoet Farm, where a variety of olives and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes flourish. It is also the humble abode of the farm owner and host, although they remain discreetly out of sight. Respecting nature, preserving the delicate ecosystem, embracing the stillness of the landscape, and fostering a passion for an exceptionally unique getaway are paramount.

Prepare to bask in a stylish, eco-friendly, solar-powered environment. The Desert Shack offers the perfect climate for unrivaled stargazing during the uninterrupted nights. In fact, the weather tends to be more favorable here, boasting more sunshine than Swakopmund itself.

Upon your arrival, you will have full access to the entire property, including your own private stand-alone shack. Take a leisurely stroll and enjoy an informal tour of the vineyard and olive groves, immersing yourself in the tranquility of the surroundings.

No experience at The Desert Shack would be complete without a warm welcome from Anna and Mona, two incredibly friendly beings who happen to be dogs by technical definition but are professionals when it comes to being the ultimate welcoming committee. For visitors, self-driving is the best option to explore the region. However, should you require transportation, the host will gladly assist in organizing rides to ensure your convenience.

Located in the picturesque, untouched expanse of the River Plots, this oasis is just a short drive away from the iconic town of Swakopmund. However, the area offers a multitude of experiences unique to this desert haven. From camel rides to hiking, mountain biking to desert excursions, and visits to the local market on Saturdays, there is no shortage of activities to enrich your stay. Yet, the highlight remains the uninterrupted views and tranquil nights that will leave you feeling rejuvenated and at peace.

Indulge in the serenity of The Desert Shack, where the desert reveals its most enchanting secrets, and solitude becomes your trusted companion.
