The earthy tones of the landscape are emulated in their construction, where polished wood and adobe are offset by playful, vibrant splashes of colour. Huge 4-poster beds are elegantly draped in mosquito netting, and the lounge area leads through to an en suite bathroom featuring both indoor and outdoor showers, perfect for those clear, starry Namibian nights.
