NamibRand Nature Reserve

NamibRand Nature Reserve, a vast privately owned reserve covering 200,000 hectares and bordering the Namib-Naukluft Park, is situated near Sossusvlei in southwestern Namibia. Visit this area for a glimpse of the majestic landscapes of red Namib sand dunes, golden grass savannah and impressive purple mountain ranges. 

Synonymous with some of Africa’s most breath-taking locations, NamibRand originated as a dream of extending the desert frontiers through the integration of former sheep farms. The result is a sanctuary free of fences allowing the wildlife to roam their habitat unhindered. The Reserve is financially self-sustaining mainly through high quality, low-impact tourism and today is a role model demonstrating holistic biodiversity conservation balanced with financial sustainability. 

Scenic drives, picnics in the wild and nature walks with resident field guides revel the fascinating wonders of the desert, uncovering small and large desert dwellers perfectly adapted for survival in this harsh and unforgiving environment.        

Game species found in the reserve include gemsbok, mountain and plains zebra, springbok, red hartebeest, bat-eared fox, spotted hyena, cape fox and African wildcat. The more rocky areas are inhabited by kudu, klipspringer, baboon and leopard while the dunes harbour a rich and diverse micro-fauna. Over a hundred species of birds have been recorded. In 2012 the NamibRand was designated as an International Dark Sky Reserve, a prestigious honour and yet another reason to visit this unique area and experience the splendour of the night skies!
