Just east of Aus, Klein Aus Vista lodge nestles in the granite-gneiss hills with magnificent views of the landscape. Here the Namib Desert merges with golden grasses. Wild horses roam free, kicking up sand. Here prospectors once gathered with diamond dreams in their eyes. From Klein Aus Vista you can explore south-western Namibia, as a destination in itself or a halfway stop en route between the canyon and the red rust dunes of Sossusvlei. It's a private and friendly enclave with a range of fine accommodation including Desert Horse Inn, Eagle's Nest chalets several kilometers away, the rustic Geisterschlucht Cabin and a secluded campsite.

Rediscover freedom at this family-run lodge which embodies the spirit of the wild horses of the Namib. Desert Horse Inn is the convenient and comfortable option in walking distance to the restaurant. We have built the attractive and airy rooms in the style of a late nineteenth century farmhouse. Ancient stories float through the rooms. We painted it in a sienna colour that glows alluringly in the late afternoon sunshine. It's as if the sun is setting indoors. At the Desert Horse Inn, relax on the upstairs wooden deck, around the fireplace in the homely lounge or at the Wild Horse bar. Swap stories swilling White Horse whiskey or a drink of your choice to match your mood. Tell tales until you cannot resist the enticing supper aromas. Outside the sky will be alight with streaks of the spectrum red to orange until the twinkling stars and moon appear. And with them lie the promise of a sound night's sleep, dreams of grazing horses and the anticipation of a new day. GPS-coordinates in 'degree, decimal-minutes': S 26˚ 39.121 E 16˚ 14.608
