A graceful lodge opens today in the Namib Desert
WINDHOEK – The Gondwana Collection Namibia today opens its new lodge, The Desert Grace, in the endless expanse of the Namib Desert.
Graceful spaces and gracious hospitality imbue this modern lodge with its old-world elegance, fiery character and refreshingly stylish interior, say its owners.
“Sip a pink gin while taking in the vast desert landscape from one of twenty spacious double rooms and four family units, each with its own pool,” says Gondwana.
“Discover fossilized dunes and the many other wonders of the Namib Desert on a dune walk around Gondwana Namib Park, which borders the World Natural Heritage Site, the Namib Sand Sea.”
The property also offers a half-day guided excursion to the highest dunes in the world at Sossusvlei.
“Enjoy an e-bike tour and the adventurous Scorpion Night Walk, or simply explore our well-marked hiking trails near The Desert Grace. Outside, ancient golden desert; inside, pure love.
The Desert Grace was built using a unique, environmentally friendly construction design, the company said.
“The main building material is sandbags that were filled on site. The natural building material has excellent sound and heat insulation qualities.
The facility is equipped with its own water recycling plant and the energy supply is largely covered by solar energy.
“Even the walkways are made of recycled glass, glistening in the sun to give guests the chance to walk on the stars.”
The Desert Grace is located 60 km north of Sesriem on the C 19 road.
