THE DREAM STARTS HERE. Far from the crowd, in a wild and isolated corner of southern Namibia, Sandfontein Lodge & Nature Reserve is a magical destination for nature lovers and adventure seekers alike. eco-conscious bungalows, it's a soul-stirring place where guests have all they need to relax and reconnect with nature. A NATURE RESERVE LIKE NO OTHER. Unlike other nature reserves, which invite dozens of people to visit at once, Sandfontein is designed with exclusivity in mind. A maximum of 10 visitors can enjoy the private, 200,000 acre reserve at any one time. Instead, nature-focused activities and excursions are crafted especially for guests, giving them the freedom to explore an area that's bigger than Singapore on foot, whatever suits their mood. They can even request a private photo safari led by Sandfontein's personal guides who have spent time developing an affinity with the striking Namibian terrain.

What a magical experience! We spent 3 nights at Sandfontein after hard traveling with 3 kids in Namibia and this was the best way we could end off our Holiday. The kids loved it and we could also enjoy some free time and just soak up the endless beauty of the Namib Scenery in front of us. Lisna and Dave really went above and beyond to show us a lot. We had a sunset game drive, lots of wildlife, fly fishing, swimming and normal fishing at the orange river. Dave also stopped and my kids could experience picking their own mango's off a tree and we ate them there on the spot. We went hiking up to the battlefield and a beautiful scenic route to the rose quarts mine. The kids loved exploring and searching for new treasures to take with us. We have endless memories now. The swimmingpool was a treat and we all indulged in it all the free time that we had with Gwen always serving us something cold with a smile. We love exploring places that is off the beaten track and this is truly one that we would love to go back to. We carry our water bottle flasks with us everywhere and that reminds us of special Namibia trip... Thank you Lisna and Dave for welcoming us like family.

We stayed for 5 nights with a couple of friends at this great place. A couple of hours off the common track you meet this mirage at an old natural spring, surrounded by dry semi-desert nature with km-long views. It has a new young couple, Lysna and David, running the lodge since this year, and they are getting a personal touch on the lodge, we even got our own labeled thermo-bottles for water! Wonderful cabins with fantastic morning views, a large lounge room to relax, nice pool to cool down in and lovely dinners sitting outside in the african night, especially the lamb braai or bbq was fantastic. Gwen in the bar made great drinks! We did game drives in open air trucks to see wild animals and went to see the old forts from the battle of Sandfontein in 1914. The best part of the stay was camping out for a night in a dry river bed under the fantastic south hemisphere star sky. Although some early teething problems, this lodge has great potential for a unique holiday.

Unique, spectacular, redefines exclusive luxury in nature. Awesome location, super attention to service and detail. If you are after sounds of silence in total exclusivity of space, look no further. Watch the wild, canoe, ride horses, or just sit back and smell the sands, listen to the earth breathe. Sandfontein is captivating.

We visited Sandfontaine Lodge in november 2019. It‘s a very nice place. Our room was beautiful and spacious with a great view. The lodge is situated in the middle of an absolutely spectacular landscape in the Karas mountains. The remoteness of the place guarantees quietness and a wonderful stary sky at night. Lesna and David are wonderful hosts. We had the most interesting scenic drive with David, we saw some nice game and a lot of spectacular landscape. The food was home made and very tasty. The lodge has got an exceptionally big pool. We enjoyed swimming a lot. We only stayed two nights so we missed the near-by Orange-river where Lesna and David offer canoo-tours. But we did a short hike on a near-by hill where one could still find remains of the Sandfontaine battle more than hundred years ago. It‘s also an interesting place in terms of history. You could easily spend three nights or even more at Sandfontaine lodge. It is definitely a place to come back to. Ralph & Sabine, Hamburg, Germany

My girlfriend and I recently stayed at Sandfontein, it is in a truly stunning part of Namibia and the lodge gives you amazing comfort and luxury in the middle of wilderness. Come here if you want to kick back and relax. There is lots of active stuff to do as well and the beautiful Orange River is a real oasis the compliments the reserve very well. David and Lisna are wonderful hosts and we highly recommend visiting this gem in southern Namibia!
