Hiking trails

The various hiking trails through the private game reserve that is part of the lodge are a special feature of the Kalahari Red Dunes Lodge.
The theme trails were designed with a lot of passion for details. They are clearly marked and maintained regularly. The well-conceived trail layouts enhance your chances to actually spot animals in the wild.

June 2013

Kalahari Red Dunes Lodge is a premier wedding destination in Namibia. We offer couples a once in a lifetime experience by getting married in the Kalahari with a beautiful sunset in the background. We recently had the privilege of hosting another Kalahari wedding. Congratulations to Mr. & Mrs. Boehnke who celebrated their special day with us amongst the dunes of the Kalahari Desert.

The construction of the new campsite for the Trans Kalahari Walk is nearing completion. This new campsite will allow visitors who partake in the Walk to experience the Kalahari in a whole new manner. After a long day spent walking in the Kalahari, visitors will get to spend a relaxing afternoon in their luxury tent and cool down in their private swimming pool. For dinner they will be treated to a “bush braai” prepared under the Kalahari night sky.

There has also been many sightings of newborns recently among the Nyala, Eland, Zebra, Impala, Springbok, Blue & Black Wildebeest, Kudu, Blesbok & the Meerkats. We are very excited that our animal numbers continue to grow.

We are also very excited to announce that Teufelskrallen Tented Lodge & Altes Farmhaus is under new management. The restaurant recently created a new menu that caters to all appetites. It is the perfect pitstop in Kalkrand, along the B1 route, to stretch your legs or to enjoy a refreshing drink. We look forward to your visit.
