What can you do at Sandfontein?
Updated: Mar 16
The Namibian Sunrise has been said to be one of the most beautiful in the world. It is definitely one of the reasons so many people flock there each year.
Along with its majestic landscape, endless dunes and diverse culture, it is becoming more and more popular.
A safari is something you must experience in Namibia. It is something completely different from other safari destinations, as the area is so dry for many months of the year that the animals have had to adapt.
One place to experience this African safari is at Sandfontein Lodge and Nature Reserve. Our lodge is situated on 200,000 acres of wilderness teeming with wildlife and adventure.
What can you experience at Sandfontein?
After you have experienced our comfortable rooms or our tranquil bungalows, you can dine at the lodge. The restaurant offers fresh food everyday catered to your needs. But what else can you do?
Guided Drives & Walks
If you want to experience the wildlife up close with a professional guide, then look no further.
Our guides at Sandfontein know the area like the back of their hands. They will guide you through the reserve to see the animals and learn about them.
The guides can also take you to the old mine where you can still see glimmers of the semi-precious stones left over.
And if the nocturnal bug has bitten you, Night Drives can be arranged to see those night-time animals.
Fishing & Canoeing on the River
Fishing in Namibia is a lot of fun with many fish such as Large Mouth Yellow Fish that thrive in the Orange River that flows right through Sandfontein.
The expert guides will be able to show you the best spots. So make sure you pack your flies and are ready to get fishing.
And if you don’t want to fish you can enjoy the river too. The lodge also has Canoes available allowing you to explore the 25kms of Orange River that flows through the Property.
If you feel independent or want a relaxing family hike or walk, the nature trails at Sandfontein are a great way to do this.
You can explore these trails on your own or with a ranger. The rangers can also help you on a photographic safari catching the rare and beautiful animals that inhabit the area.
Namibia should definitely be on your travel list for 2021. With Namibia managing to keep its Covid19 numbers down, there are fewer safer places.
A safari at Sandfontein is a great way to get away from the busy cities and into a socially distanced space.
