Namib Rand Family Hideout Namibia

Email Reservations and enquiries: namibia@madbookings.com

In 1999, Andreas and Mandy Brückner got the go-ahead to convert the deserted home of Karakul sheep farmers on the farm Stellarine into what is known as the NamibRand Family Hideout today. It is remotely situated in south-western Namibia on the NamibRand Nature Reserve, one of Southern Africa ’s largest private nature reserves.

As the sole occupier of this rustic and historic farmhouse, you will be able to appreciate quality time spent alone with your family and friends. The Hideout is simply yet comfortably equipped for your essential needs, a solid and safe haven from the sometimes harsh desert conditions. Evidence of bygone farming days still remains in the old walls, fences and outbuildings, almost buried by ever-shifting sand dunes.

Enjoy the spectacular views over the vast plains and ancient blue mountain ranges, set out on foot or by 4x4 into the glowing red dunes for a close encounter with the fascinating variety of Namib Desert fauna and flora. The kids will love the dune-boarding and endless open spaces, or chasing after beetles and lizards scuttling over the sand dunes. A small water-hole just 20m from the verandah attracts a myriad of birdlife as well as oryx, springbok, bat-eared fox, porcupines and other wildlife. The exceptional surroundings and clarity of the air provide endless opportunities for photography by day and star-gazing by night.

 Namibia  hotel

Slow down, leave the stress and pace of our high-tech world behind you for a while and relax around an open fire in the silence of the multi-coloured sunset, punctuated only by the click of barking geckos. Here in the vast and ancient Namib Desert , nature still reigns supreme. You may be comforted to know that a portion of your overnight costs goes towards the conservation of this unique and fragile environment.

Our eco-friendly house uses a solar hot water system, solar lights, a gas fridge, freezer and stove and barbeque facilities. It is fully equipped for self-catering and can accommodate up to 10 people in 4 bedrooms. The expansive verandah provides ample shaded space for alfresco dining and living. The house is also fully wheelchair-accessible. The pure water running in the modern bathroom and kitchen facilities is pumped using a solar pump from deep below the desert’s surface. Bring your own sleeping bags; otherwise bedding is available by prior arrangement only.

In May 2010, we are opening a new private campsite, situated one kilometre from the Family Hideout, nestled in the dunes of NamibRand.
For one party of up to 8 people. Pre-bookings only. Watch this space -
