The owner-run Desert Horse Inn stands on the Klein Aus Vista reserve, which is reminiscent of a 'Western' movie set. It's about 1,400m above sea level, in what is probably the coldest place in Namibia - a totally unspoilt semi-desert area, with wide open plains against a backdrop of mountains. Klein Aus Vista is just 2km west of the small town of Aus - and some of our travellers use this reserve as a base from which to visit Luderitz.

Our view of Desert Horse Inn

The Desert Horse Inn at Klein Aus Vista is a place that makes you feel welcomed and at home straight away. For those travelling between Sossusvlei and Fish River Canyon it also makes a convenient stop for visiting Ludertiz without staying in the town. That said, if you have a little extra time, especially if you like the idea of hiking in the reserve, then we'd suggest that you look at spending at least one night (if not more) at its more atmospheric sister-property, Eagle's Nest.
