Peaceful retreat in the unique Barchan Dune

A beautiful place to stay. The bungalow was peacefull, characterful, clean and spacious.

The hosts, Hannetje and Willem were extremely hospitable. The dinner party atmosphere allowed for interesting discussions while eating good food and drinking fine wines. The afternoon tea and scrumptious cakes served on our own terrace overlooking the peacful valley were memorable.

The walking trail was only short but then we continued up the mountain which was pathless and challenging. We were accompanied by the six month old dog Cocoa, who we did manage to wear out!

The game drive was interesting but not as informative as some. However it was accompanied by the best sunset we saw.

Barchan Dune Retreat review

A real gem. This is a small little known place, originally a farm, they are now farming tourists !!

The walking here is fabulous and as was the welcome. Dinner was dinner party style and great fun. Little attentions to detail were really appreciated - I made a passing comment that a beer for lunch would be lovely and at lunchtime, it duly appeared, no further prompting.

Coffee left on our individual terraces at dawn was extremely special and most so on our last monring in Namibia as we watched sunrise and realised sadly we were on our way home. The two meerkats captured our hearts too - real characters, they came on a walk with us.
