Relax, astonish – enjoy the big pool with a cool drink at the bar, relax in a special place and assimilate the striking nature of the Namib perimeter, the oldest desert on earth. For example, let the smallest and trifling in nature astonish you, like our reach bird population as from an ostrich to a tiny honeysuckle. Perhaps you can cross the way of a desert inguana. After the first rain you can experience the frogs came alive as well as our insects, like the big moths with a rolled-up trunk, who wants to share your good South-African redwine at sundowner with you.

Hiking – on marked trails you can enjoy the scenery individually and at your very own pace. You can walk over rock formations in areas up to 1.8 billion years old – the time life itself was born on our planet and allow time, space and silence to get to you. Search for the Rooiklip-diamonds (clear quarts crystals). Due to the unchanging climate of the Southwest of Africa a unique flora has developed during millions of years. Sit down at the trunk of the huge aloe or the quiver tree and look at the moringa, commiphora, sterculia etc.
