Activities/Attractions: Namibia is one of the least populated countries in the world (1.5 inhabitants/km²) and shares borders with Angola, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Botswana and South Africa. To the visitor, it is one of the most magical countries on this planet.

Because of its geological richness, its diversity, and its landscapes seemingly of another age, Namibia is an unclassifiable destination. The mixture of African, Dutch, English and German cultures add to its charm.

The Namib Desert, the oldest desert in the world, is strewn with gorges and canyons, among others Sesriem and Kuiseb canyons. The colours of the dunes, especially at sunrise and sunset, the harmony and uniqueness of so many places, make it a must to spend some time in the Namib desert for anyone who truly wishes to discover Namibia.

Only a few kilometres from KuanguKuangu lies the NamibRand Nature Reserve, near the famous Sossusvlei dunes. This reserve is the fourth biggest private nature reserve in the world.

KuanguKuangu is surrounded by a mountain range, a veritable natural geological marvel (gigantic rocks shaped by the climactic changes), which you can explore on foot (the dry river bed passes just behind). These rocky formations will reveal stunning and eccentric surprises to the attentive observer.

We can also organize your complete holidays trip in Namibia, from Europe or Africa, depending on what you wish and what you want to do (we provide all travel services, a la carte self-drive tours, including flights, accommodation in Namibia, lodges, camping site, car reservations). Please contact us for more information.

"Here we found the true values: spirituality, sensibility and love for the little things. Thank you very much."

"Staying at Kuangukuangu is much like being in a painting, even more exiting because colours change continuously. One would not believe such a beautiful, scenic place to exist on our planet, until one sees it with ones own eyes."

 "Thanks for offering other people the pleasure of sharing your secluded home away."

"Un endroit unique au monde, au milieu de nulle part et si près des étoiles! Indéniablement le plus beau souvenir de notre voyage en Namibie. Merci pour ces instants magiques qui resteront à jamais gravés dans nos mémoires."

General Information: The main characteristic of KuanguKuangu Luxury Cabin is the diversity of the different desert landscapes in the region of Sossusvlei, Namibia.

Situated in the peaceful solitude of an idyllic valley, in the heart of the desert, KuanguKuangu is the ideal place for travellers who seek tranquility and intimacy. Nestled in a dune, KuanguKuangu makes it possible for its occupants to live in harmony with nature, at the same time offering them comfort, luxury, adventure and relaxation.
