NamibRand Family Hideout

Description in other languages:   NamibRand Family Hideout

In 1999, Andreas and Mandy Brückner got the go-ahead to convert the deserted home of Karakul sheep farmers on the farm Stellarine into what is known as the NamibRand Family Hideout today. It is remotely situated in south-western Namibia , on the NamibRand Nature Reserve, one of Southern Africa ’s largest private nature reserves.  As the sole occupier of this rustic and historic farmhouse, you will be able to appreciate quality time spent alone with your family and friends. The Hideout is simply yet comfortably equipped for your essential needs, a solid and safe haven from the sometimes harsh desert conditions. Evidence of bygone farming days still remains in the old walls, fences and outbuildings, almost buried by ever-shifting sand dunes. Enjoy the spectacular views over the vast plains and ancient blue mountain ranges, set out on foot or by 4x4 into the glowing red dunes for a close encounter with the fascinating variety of Namib Desert fauna and flora. The kids will love the dune-boarding and endless open spaces, or chasing after beetles and lizards scuttling over the sand dunes. A small water-hole just 20m from the verandah attracts a myriad of birdlife as well as oryx, springbok, bat-eared fox, porcupines and other wildlife. The exceptional surroundings and clarity of the air provide endless opportunities for photography by day and star-gazing by night.
