Why we love it

In 2002 a stone age cave was discovered on the nature reserve with ancient stone tools and pottery shards within. The cave offers an intriguing insight into the area and is best explored after a game drive through rugged landscapes. Delight in refreshing sundowners and snacks in the remote Namibian bush and keep your eyes peeled for large game species that inhabit the land.
