Settled in the Klein Aus Vista, Namibia, Desert Horse Inn strikes the perfect balance between homeliness and attraction, evoking a sense of the Western-style living usually seen on film. Its proximity to culturally interesting towns, as well as its access to unique areas of the reserve under the Aus Mountains, makes the Inn an ideal base from which to walk, bike, or drive through the surrounding scenic landscapes.
Guest accommodation consists of 30 rooms – 24 Twin, 3 Triple, and 3 Four-bed – spread across rolling plains. Each rooms features en-suite facilities and provides a good view of the reserve. There are also four rooms in the Farmhouse, all of which share an outside sitting area.
The main lodge – a great wooden structure overlooking the reserve – houses most of the main facilities at the camp. There is a spacious lounge with a fireplace, restaurant and bar, with a seating area upstairs, as well as an outside deck where guests can eat, drink, and enjoy the views as wild horse gallop past.
Like its sister lodge, Eagle’s Nest Chalets, the Inn provides a great spot from which to explore Luderitz, a nearby coastal town, Kolamskop, an abandoned diamond settlement, or the rich wildlife found in the surrounding reserve. In addition to on-site game drives through Gondwana Sperrgebiet Rand Park, there are opportunities for guests to participate in self-guided walks, sundowner drives, horse riding, and mountain biking.
Whilst children of all ages are welcome, there are no rollaway beds or cribs available. Therefore, the camp is best suited to older children with the maturity to enjoy all the activities on offer.

It was FANTASTIC! Beautifully organised, everything worked like clockwork. We agreed that we had the best support team ever (and we have experience) - all delightful, very professional and nothing was too much bother.
It clearly couldn't have been a better route, such a wonderful mix of landscapes. And plenty of acclimatisation time. Nonetheless, I was glad of my summit oxygen.
Kit excellent. Double good mattresses made for most comfortable trek camping ever. Tents v good. Mess tent pretty windproof, which was vital for enjoyment. Best camp loo ever!
My favourite day was Shira Cathedral. Amazing.

The safari trip was excellent! The stay, the food and the people were all very nice. We were happy to have Ryan and Stanley as our game drive guides they brought us up close to the animals and Ryan gave very good information throughout.
Would definitely recommend to friends who are interested in safaris :)
Also, thanks much for your help, particularly keeping the room for my Brother and his wife they’ve enjoyed the safari very much too!

We had a fantastic time and all the arrangements worked perfectly.
We were very impressed with the quality and service levels of all 4 locations visited and it was truly a holiday of a lifetime.
Thank you to you and to Lisa for giving us this experience.
Particular highlights for us – really the whole experience, but of particular impact:
Breathtaking scenery at Cathedral Peak Hotel
Rhino Ridge game drives incredible, thanks to guide (we had their head guide, Hala, who’s knowledge, enthusiasm, kindness, interaction, ability to spot wildlife was out of this world)
Luxury of Rhino Ridge (shower, food, views, service)
Immersion in nature, torch lit meal on last night and beach trip at Kosi Forest Lodge
Level of service, quality of food throughout
