Far from the crowd, in a wild and isolated corner of southern Namibia, Sandfontein Lodge & Nature Reserve is a magical destination for nature lovers and adventure seekers alike. Home to arid plains, glassy rivers and airy, eco-conscious bungalows, it’s a soul-stirring place where guests have all they need to relax and reconnect with nature.
Unlike other nature reserves, which invite dozens of people to visit at once, Sandfontein is designed with exclusivity in mind. A maximum of10 visitors can enjoy the private, 200,000-acre reserve at any one time, and scheduled tours are absolutely off the agenda. Instead, nature-focused activities and excursions are crafted especially for guests, giving them the freedom to explore an area that’s bigger than Singapore on foot or by canoe – whatever suits their mood. They can even request a private photo safari led by Sandfontein’s personal guides, who have spent time developing an affinity with the striking Namibian terrain.
