The Sandfontein Lodge

Framing panoramic vistas, the Sandfontein lodge is a light and airy haven, inviting guests to escape civilisation, shun routines and be ensconced in the remarkable silence. From the lap pool, sundeck and outdoor lounge, endless views are ever-evolving as the sun transits the sky, while the terrace sets the stage for al-fresco dining and star-gazing around an open-air firepit.


At night, Sandfontein’s unique StarBeds provide the most sublime outdoor unification with Mother Nature, silence and the universe thanks to exceptional viewing of the Milky Way and shooting stars.


Our Suites

Thoughtfully isolated from one another, Sandfontein’s exclusive use Suites are private, indulgent and simply oozing with Namibian charm.


Each has been built using locally sourced materials to help protect the environment, and from the wide-open terraces to the lavish floor-to-ceiling windows, every aspect has been designed to help you soak up the sheer size and beauty of the Sandfontein game reserve.

Sandfontein Philosophy


At Sandfontein, we cherish the belief that space, silence and tranquillity epitomise true luxury, allowing us to slow down, pause, reflect, and forge meaningful connections with our natural world, ourselves and our friends and family.


Our ethos at Sandfontein is deeply rooted in an innate appreciation for the natural world that sustains us. Each blade of grass, every drop of rain and every whisper of wind beckons us to connect with our innate selves.


Sandfontein is an invitation to find yourself, in the middle of nowhere. To hear yourself, in total silence.


We invite you to join us and experience the magic of Sandfontein – where we honour and celebrate our interconnectedness with nature and one another.
