The Eagle's Nest stands on the Klein Aus Vista reserve, which is 2km west of the small town of Aus, in Southern Namibia. It's just south of the main B4 tarred road, approximately 120km from the coast at Luderitz.

The location of Klein Aus Vista makes it excellent for a 2-3 day stop for visitors wanting to visit Luderitz who do not want to stay there. Eagle's Nest Lodge is set at the foot of the Aus mountains on this reserve, on a 10 hectare farm that borders on the Sperrgebiet.(Forbidden diamond mining area.)

The Nest is 7km away from the main reception and restaurant complex of the Desert Horse Inn, and is easily accessible by car in only 10 minutes.
