Desert Whisper in the Namib Desert of Namibia is an exclusive retreat.

This extraordinary design lodge is a private, couple guests-only retreat nestled among a rock formation in the middle of a desert valley, part of the Gondwana Collection.

Inspired by nature and natural shapes, material and colours, this contemporary desert home is one that you may never want to leave.

The lodge is located in the Namib Desert, which has endured arid or semi-arid conditions for roughly 55–80 million years, placing it as the oldest desert in the world and containing some of the world’s driest regions.

Desert Whisper is positioned close to the known Sossusvlei, Namibia’s most spectacular landmarks with its red dunes, white salt pan and Deadvlei.
The area offers different activities, from hot air ballooning to helicopter tours, but also hiking, e-biking and more.

Arrived at Namib Desert Lodge you will receive your own personal reception, dedicated host and scenic drive ensure exclusivity.


Desert whisper has everything you need in a complete open space only divided in two parts by a full glass door.

Meals are pre-arranged to suit your dietary preferences.
