Although the comfortable cabin (of which there is just one) is only a 15 min walk (or 3 minute drive) from the main house at Barchan Dunes Retreat, you feel as if you are miles from anywhere. We liked the sense of isolation and tranquility from the moment we arrived. The cabin looks out over a flat valley of swaying yellow grass, surrounded by rocky hills - a beautiful view. The well designed open air bathroom area/shower/toilet is a unique feature (waist high walls), and we successfully heated the water tank (with a fire) for hot water showers. Instead of opting for dinner at the main house, we had a thoughtfully prepared braai pack, which was provided in a cooler box: beer, wine, meat, salad, cheese and biscuits - it was all delicious. Spacious bedroom with large floor to ceiling windows, very comfortable bed with good quality bed linen. We only had a one night stay here, but would definitely return and do some walks in the hills behind the cabin. We walked over to the main house at Barchan Dunes Retreat in the morning, delicious breakfast. This is a very unusual place to stay, but perfect if you're after peace and quiet and privacy - a truly memorable African experience. This was our favourite place in Namibia. Shortly after leaving here to get to Windhoek, the road goes via Spreetshoogte Pass - breathtaking views as you wind your way to the top of the mountain.
