By far the best place we have stayed on our Namibian trek.
Fantastic location overlooking the valley, infinity pool, and great dining room.

Today we head north through the Damaraland region with its vast and rugged terrain. Its mountain ranges are intercepted by wide gravel plains, which run into sandy, vegetated riverbeds and hot, dry valleys. We enter Kaokoland where we overnight.
The early morning drive on unsealed dust roads ...
... 2 double bedrooms, second floor lounge and turreted roof area with great views. The fort was built by the Germans in 1905 to control poaching and arms smuggling in the area. In 1909 the police took it over, it was restored in 1987. One of the pictures shows the sad state prior to restoration.
