Desert Whisper

True luxury for two in Gondwana Namib Park

Desert Whisper is so luxurious and so elite, made for a couple who really need private luxury, personal space and romance in the desert. Without a whisper of sound, hiding in the splendid beauty of the Gondwana Namib Park of Namibia, another great find. 

Discover true luxury for two in in this chic modern accommodation with a desert view that is quite otherworldly, a Star Wars kind of experience, and exceptional at that! All couples who have been here rave about the place, stunned to have been part of so much opulence and attention to detail in the remoteness of a wide-open, arid landscape.

It’s a real escape from unreal life, Desert Whisper, and maybe you will hear the whispers of the desert in the resounding silence at night? This lavish lodge is another innovation from the Gondwana Collection and is exquisitely intimate, just for two special guests. It’s a pod, like a spaceship that landed in the middle of the night and aliens walked out onto this moonscape with a difference!

The chic cabin has cork flooring and is round, the aim being to keep it as cool as possible all year round. The large airy bedroom features extensive glass doors to take in the huge views of sand and sky, the open plan lounge with modern sofas, grassy rugs and a telescope you can peer through all day and all night. I mean, who sleeps in such an unusual view-soaked cabin?

The glass shower stands in the bedroom, an oasis of water and light, and the fully stocked kitchenette next door, the bar and the dining area all lend themselves to a superb holiday getaway. Guests are mostly left to their own devices but a personal host is in radio contact to make sure things run smoothly and that the lucky couple simply rest! 

The cabin reflects what is outside in its neutral shades and natural textures and furnishings and the bed is covered with cream cottons, quality bedding and pillows, facing the huge Namib desert out into infinity and beyond. Sit for hours on the patio, jus looking and absorbing nature’s beauty with a homemade cocktail in hand and do it again at night when the stars cover the sky in millions of tiny shiny lights. 

Cool off at all hours in the swimming pool that you access on a beautiful polished wooden walkway – sit on the deck in the shade, swim and read a book. Just enjoy the absolute tranquillity of this fancy abode – the pool is round and clear, almost the same shape as the pod chalet and designed for a swim in designer waters. 

Your personal host prepares delicious meals, pre-arranged to suit your dietary preferences and always ready to eat in the kitchen, on the deck, at the pool or on your bed, you choose! We love this unusual and heavenly refuge in the Namib Desert called Desert Whisper and we can arrange a combo package tour for you into the rest of Namibia if you please.

Overview

A secret refuge in a famous desert, this is Desert Whisper in the Namib of Namibia, a paradise for those who love huge open skies, desert landscapes and lots of stars and space. It’s new, its innovating and it is a real treat for a couple only, served by a personal host, alone, no schedule and no demands and no noise whatsoever.

The lodge is elevated to make the most of the desert landscape and far in the distance guests can glimpse the beautiful Naukluft mountains of the Sossusvlei region. Activities involve expeditions to the scintillating Sossusvlei, E-bike tours and early morning and sunset scenic drives too.  

Visit Sesriem only 60 km away across the desert and adventure to Dune 45, Sesriem Canyon and the entire Namib-Naukluft Park. Go hot air ballooning, take scenic air flights or sunset game drives. Nature walks, hiking trips and horseback trails take you deeper into the Sossusvlei. 

Most of the day will be enjoyed around the swimming pool and in the air-conditioned suite relaxing and enjoying the silence. There is free Wi-Fi but who really needs that here? This exclusive safari into the Namib includes all meals and drinks, snacks and activities – choose a morning scenic drive, a sundowner drive, a Sossusvlei expedition or a guided E-bike tour as part the price.  

A couple will settle easily into this ultra-private space with its one room, one kitchen, lounge and deck, plus astounding pool deck just below the lodge. We call this lodge a pod because it seems as if it fell from space a Star Wars movie and landed perfectly here in the desert moonscape. Enter the pod via the wooden boardwalk through large glass doors into the main living area where you cook, eat and sit to relax. 

Then go into the large bedroom with its glass doors leading out onto the deck where you will spend most of your time absorbing the views, natural silences so that time is of no consequence. There is a braai, a pool deck that beats any pool area you have ever seen and the pool is clear and round and just heaven. Pinch yourself to make sure it all is real! The shower is in the bedroom but it is just the two of you so that fits.

Your personal host will sort out all your meals that you can prearrange if you have special dietary requirements or likes and dislikes. No one will be there except the two of you but radio contact ensures that all your ends are met and you can call on your host at any time. Enjoy wonderful cocktails too at all hours of the day and just enjoy doing nothing. Unlimited free Wi-Fi is available.

We love this lavish lookout retreat made for two in a regal sense of newness, where being together is all that matters. It’s all on one level, it’s spacious and it’s decadent, unusual and lovely. Just enjoy Desert Whisper and take out a package tour with us to see something else on the way there or back as Namibia is such a vast and fascinating African destination.
