Solar panels on the cabins provide hot water and lights, and water is pumped from a nearby borehole. Nature provides the rest. This is an opportunity for guests to be mindful of resources and to step lightly in the delicate desert environment.

Savour the desert wilderness at Dune Star Camp, with its exceptional view, clean air, wide open space and bright starlit sky. The Dune Star experience is a one-night once-in-a-lifetime Namib Desert opportunity.

Nice place but we expected it to be in dunes like the one we saw in sossusvlei, and we were a little bit disapointed it was so close from the Namib Desert Lodge.
