It is a guest house owned and run by Hannetjie and Willem van Rooyen, who originally came from north Namibia but settled here after falling in love with the area around Sossusvlei.
ACCESS & LOCATION:
Barchan Dune Retreat lies in a beautiful situation at the foot of the spectacular Spreetshoogte Pass on the edge of the Namib Desert.
ACCOMMODATION & FACILITIES:
The lodge is built into the side of the dune. All six of its rooms are spacious and have fabulous views. They are simple but comfortable and clean, with a large bathroom and a veranda with table and chairs where guests can sit out and enjoy the breathtaking sunsets. Meals tend to be lively as they are taken around a large table with the hosts and other guests.
Activities include farm drives and hiking, as well as excursions around the Sossusvlei area, quad biking, scenic flights and hot air ballooning.
