At Tsondab Valley owners have built in accordance with nature.
Our 5 en-suite guest bungalows will easily resist any intractability of nature with high ceilings and massive walls. Additionally, they give a nice appearance in the surrounding desert landscape.
Our open dining area with bar impresses with breathtaking views over the Camelthorn Valley & red sand dunes as well as the nearby floodlit waterhole.
During the hot time of the day our guests enjoy a refreshing bath in the large natural pool (8x12 m).

The premises consist of 3 separate campsites, conveniently situated under acacia trees with wind protection, water tab, movable fireplace & stone table. Exclusive views over the Camelthorn Valley & dunes from every site!
Visitors especially appreciate our open-air showers (hot & cold water), which are skillfully integrated into the caves as part of the limestone plateau underneath the farmhouse. Open views to the stars & dunes plus intimacy in harmony with nature guaranteed!
