Dune Star: Take a walk through time

A unique desert adventure beckons in pristine dune scenery. Dune Star Camp in Gondwana Namib Park was recently opened for guests with a penchant for hiking.

Jan. 8, 2014 - PRLog -- A short guided hike through the Namib, a picturesque dune camp. Then, a tasty dinner and a night spent under the stars... Dune Star Camp in Gondwana Namib Park visit http://www.gondwana-collection.com for details opened on 8 December and the first guests were thrilled. Dune Star ensures an extraordinary experience, tailored to a small group.

The first guests were led to Dune Star Camp by expert guide Chantelle Bosch. “There are several routes from Namib Desert Lodge to the new camp, visit http://www.gondwana-collection.com/home/accommodation/namibdesertlodge for details

” she says. “Whether we take a short one or a longer one depends on how fit the guests are and also on the late afternoon temperatures, of course.”

The nine cabins of Dune Star are situated in a spectacular section of the Namib Desert in prime positions on the sand dunes. Solar-powered and with a minimal eco-footprint the structures, although providing protection from the elements, can be easily dismantled and removed, leaving no trace in the sensitive environment.

Ancient fossilised dunes act as a backdrop and sienna sand-ripples extend onto grassy plains, a green vein of camelthorn trees and the purple-blue Naukluft Mountains in the distance. The central cabin, ideal for dining and socialising, is positioned on the lip of a dune and is edged by a sprawling deck overlooking the sublime scenery.

After hot showers, sundowners and an appetizing fire-cooked meal, the desert night, adorned with a generous splash of stars, beckons. Guests have the option of rolling their beds out onto their decks for a sound sleep permeated by Namib blessings and deep peace.

Concordantly the first guests agreed: More than its exceptional pristine desert landscape, Dune Star provides an unrivalled outdoor experience, far from the bustle of civilization.

Bookings for this hiking experience and a night spent in the Dune Star Camp can be made immediately visit http://www.gondwana-collection.com/home/news/news-2013/ne... for details . The package is available subject to booking the night prior to the hike at Namib Desert Lodge. The same rates as for Namib Desert Lodge apply.
