All areas are open plan inviting you to wander around freely. On the shaded veranda you can enjoy your breakfast, lunch and dinner. The cosy lounge is decorated with ethnic African decor and comfortable leather sofas.

The sixteen homely chalets, all built from local rock and blending in with the environment are simple yet very comfortable. All have standing fans, and mosquito nets and ensuite bathrooms with showers. Four of the rooms are family units with two sets of twin beds and one shared bathroom.  As the lodge has an eco-friendly emphasis all the bathroom products are environmental friendly and where possible the lodge is run with assistance from a wind generator.

Sundowner drives/nature drives are also a delight with some spectacular mountain scenery as your back drop, and those wanting to explore the Naukluft Mountains can also arrange guided trips to this area.
