At the heart of the lodge is a cool and comfortable main area. With high thatched ceilings, a well-stocked bar, small library area and plenty of sofas and armchairs, it’s the perfect spot to relax in at any time of day. Outside, there is a shaded veranda with more seating and a large fire pit area. There is also a swimming pool – ideal in the heat of the Namibian days.
The landscape is compelling, with vast swathes of arid desert, gravel plains and pockets of green vegetation backed by mountains and distinct reddish dunes that have undoubtedly made the area famous. Kwessi Dune Lodge is surrounded by hyper arid desert and is great all year round (and the air conditioning will keep you cool!) In the dry winter months of April to October, the desert is pleasant and dry (with chilly mornings), whilst November to March brings thunderstorms and hotter temperatures.
