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.

Thank you, Lisa! Our trip was wonderful even with the weather disruption. We loved seeing so many different parts of the country, meeting people and experiencing the culture. The desert was surely a highlight for our boys and the creativity and artisanship of everything from food to crafts were a highlight for me. A special shout out to our guide and driver, they became a special part of our trip and we will forever be grateful for meeting them and learning from them. I cannot believe we had to wait three years for this adventure but it was certainly worth the wait! Thanks for all your help building the itinerary, modifying it and troubleshooting during our stay.

Hi Lisa and everyone at Tourdust,
We've had a wonderful time on our holiday and wanted to pass our appreciation to you. Everything has been expertly planned and executed, allowing us to enjoy the holiday to its fullest. Special appreciation to Muhammed, Ibrahim, and Omar, our Atlas guide, cook, and muleteer, who couldn't have done more for us and were just generally wonderful and hardworking. Riad Hanane is a perfect base in Marrakech to complement the trekking as it's ina less touristy area of the medina, which we appreciated. The staff and accomodation was superb.Thank you again for a trip to remember!
Bob, May, Grace, and Lucas

Hello Lisa. We came back from our trip two weeks ago now so I am sending this email much later than I wanted to. Nevertheless, what I wanted to say was thank you very much for helping us organise an amazing trip. Our days in Mafia Island to celebrate my 50th birthday were exactly what I wanted them to be: a fantastic time with the family doing activities that we all love and enjoy in a relaxing, unusual, beautiful place full of sun, surrounded by water, wildlife and friendly people. We swam with whale sharks, did a lot of snorkeling, had two picnics on a beautiful sand bank, watched the sunset over the sea, did a bird watching excursion and tried scuba diving.
All merit to you because Pole Pole in Mafia Island was your recommendation. I never heard of Mafia Island before and didn't consider Tanzania to start with. It was an amazing place to stay: friendly, relaxed, beautiful, comfortable, with great food and fantastic service. Thanks not only for finding the place but also for your patience as we prepared the trip and I explored options and decided what I wanted. All went incredibly well (places, transfers, flights) and we had a very memorable time together that we will all remember forever - as we still do the safari trip to South Africa you organised for us 5 years ago.
I cannot wait to plan another trip! I am already thinking about where and when. Hopefully no pandemic will get in the way this time. And I will come to you as my favourite travel agent.
I copy in this message the Tourdust office because I want them to know how good you are and how much I appreciated the different trips you organised for us (including the trip to India for my parents that was cancelled due to Covid). I cannot thank you enough :o)
Kind regards, Carol
