Desert Breeze Lodge

Accommodation in Swakopmund - Namibia

Desert Breeze is located a few minutes' drive from Swakopmund town centre. Standing on on the banks of the ephemeral Swakop River the lodge also sits at the opening of the Namib Desert dune belt. It is the perfect setting for self-drive visitors, individual travellers and families who prefer an out-of-town desert atmosphere with a distant ocean view. Enormous basalt sculptures stand on permanent sentry duty over your desert destination.

Desert Breeze has been designed and constructed by one of the country's top lodge and restaurant developers with many of their guests commenting favorably on the distinctly original character. Other properties by the same architect are the Raft and Tug Restaurants in Walvis Bay and Swakopmund respectively, Erongo Wilderness Lodge near Omaruru and the nearby popular Stiltz Lodge.

Enjoy breakfast indoors or on the deck to maximise the view and tranquil Namib Desert atmosphere. Secure parking and laundry facilities are available. Stopover and appreciate the peaceful environment in either:

  • Luxury Bungalows: 12 en-suite Luxury Bungalows have separate bed and seating areas are equipped with wireless internet, mini bar, tea/coffee station and digital in-room safes. The private sun deck affords amazing river bed and dune views from almost every window.
  • Villa: The upmarket villa sleeps up to 6 guests. It has similar facilities and views to the bungalows.
