On the Eastern fringes of Namibia, the red sands of the Kalahari beckon. Let us introduce you to Kalahari Anib Lodge - the place of burnished sands. Anib is a Nama word meaning bird. These creatures flit and twitter in the thorn trees, aloes and palms around the butternut shaped pool or under the eaves of the original farmhouse. Look for the wooden statues of giraffe and ancient man hiding in the courtyard. Easily accessible by car (30km from Mariental), this Kalahari lodge is a wise choice for an overnight stop.

Perhaps, travelling between Windhoek and the south or continuing to the Kgalagadi, you might choose to stay on for a couple of nights and explore. Dine under thatch or under the stars. There's nothing like feeling the good earth underfoot. In summer after rains, luminous saffron flowers dot the veld. Breathe in the character and energy of this distinctive area, feeling closer to the land. Sunset. The optimum time to experience the Kalahari colours. The busy sun dips and lights up the sand as if glowing from an inner fire. Legends rise from the ground. Don't miss this time of day when the Earth seems to pause for Kalahari magic. Providing an oasis in the desert for groups, individual travellers and campers, Kalahari Anib Lodge is a relaxed and down-to-earth stopover for a taste of the Kalahari.
