Barchan Dune Retreat
is located in the North Namib
in the Southwest
region of Namibia
This small lodge is tucked away in a hidden valley at the foot of the Spreetshoogte Pass, some 65km northeast of the park gate into Sossusvlei
This friendly little lodge has just three rooms, unusually designed to sit into the hillside such that they are barely visibly from some angles. The main area is set at the base of a large kopje and has gorgeous views out over the surrounding desert.
Activities include nature drives and walks on the farm, as well as a network of longer marked hiking trails.
Barchan Dune Retreat is a really nice little place. Although it is too distant to really be thought of as a convenient base for Sossusvlei, the lovely scenery here may prove tempting for people wanting to spend longer in this greater area.
