Vast, secluded and serene: Sandfontein is a place where relaxation comes naturally. You could easily while away a fortnight or more at the lodge, drinking in the pure desert air and drenching yourself with sun. But with an abundance of wildlife, a rich colonial history and some of the planet’s most spectacular geology, this wild Namibian landscape demands exploration. And getting out there couldn’t be easier. Simply choose what you’d like to do, and let Sandfontein’s experienced staff take care of the rest.


Scenic drives
Let Sandfontein’s rangers guide you to the most spectacular corners of the reserve – from savannahs speckled by the silhouettes of game animals to old mines that still twinkle with semi-precious stones. Night drives that search for nocturnal species can also be arranged.


Few fishing spots are as serene and enticing as the 25km-long stretch of the Orange River that weaves gently along the edge of the pristine reserve. Whether you’re fishing in the deep pools that swirl beneath tall riverside trees, or whipping a fly rod through the air above bubbling rapids, the chances for success are high. Sandfontein’s expert guide can take you straight to the best parts of the river, where largemouth yellowfish thrive.
