Each chalet features an en suite bathroom with a shower, a kitchenette, a cozy fireplace, and private veranda with chairs, a table, and an outdoor barbecue. Meals are served at the Desert Horse Inn restaurant of guests can grab a take-away breakfast or barbecue packs upon request or even cook up their own meal. There are double chalets, double bed chalets, four-bed chalets, and two-bed chalets available.
The chalets are set in the rocky Aus Mountains where the Namib sands merge into the sun-bleached grasses of the Pro-Namib. The Namib Desert is one of the oldest and largest deserts in the world and is more than 1,000 miles long and up to 100 miles wide. The desert is famous for its massive sand dunes especially Sossuvlei area, these reddish-orange dunes are some of the largest in the world, with some exceeding 1,000 feet. Small populations of lizard, gecko, gerbil, mole, hyaena, and jackal have learned to subsist here. There is even a unique population of elephants who have adapted to the arid climate. The plains and the dunes also support large numbers of several varieties of antelope, especially gemsbok and springbok, as well as ostriches and some zebras.
