Garden Oasis in the Desert?

Namib Desert Lodge - Gondwana Collection

A garden oasis in the middle of one of the world's oldest deserts seems unfathomable. That is, of course, until you learn how Namib Desert Lodge has achieved exactly that....

By re-using treated wastewater in their gardens before it returns to the natural underground water supply, Namib Desert Lodge is able to offer guests a lush outdoor space to relax in, as well as create additional habitat for local birdlife and various other local fauna.

Responsible tourism operations such as these are made possible by changing one's perspective about how to offer a wonderful guest experience while respecting the local environment and using scarce natural resources wisely.

Thank you for sharing your story... Vaino, Salom, Alina
