The NamibRand is one of the most scenic locations in Africa with towering mountains, grasslands, and red sand dunes, and with no large predators, sleeping in the open under the stars is one of the most amazing experiences in Africa.
Below are some of our favorite Namibian sleep-out options.
The ultimate way to explore and experience the Namib Desert – is on foot through the mountains, grasslands, and sand dunes and best of all…….sleeping out in the open under the stars. The NamibRand Nature Reserve is one of the few International Dark Sky Reserves in the world making the nights spent in the open sleeping with nothing but millions of stars above you even more impressive.
There are no large predators in the NamibRand Nature Reserve and so sleeping on the sand dunes in a stretcher bed under the stars is completely safe. There is a bucket shower and long-drop loo and meals are served under the stars around the fire.
This is a 2-night trail and can be combined with a night or two at Wolwedans. See our Namibian walking safari for more info.
