So you’re drawn to Namibia’s vast, empty landscapes and remote conservancies. But where do you stay? What is the tourism accommodation like?
Blending in: Mowani Mountain Camp, built among the boulders in Damaraland

Namibia is a vast and diverse country that often feels untamed and unregulated. This is also true of the choice of accommodation establishments here, which range from very basic guest farms to expensive luxury lodges – with no easily understandable grading system to assist in differentiating. However, with a little guidance, planning and compromise, it’s possible to find accommodation to suit both your budget and style.

The country has managed to avoid the large international hotel chains. The lodge groups that do operate here are locally or regionally owned (Wilderness Safaris, Gondwana Collection and Namibia Wildlife Resorts are among the bigger portfolios). However, most establishments are privately owned and operated, and frequently somewhat eclectic. Don’t expect beige, uniform, boring hotel rooms – the owner of your lodge may have decided to decorate his room with some kudu horns, a pink cow hide and a revealing picture of himself!
