With endless red dunes and crystal clear night skies, Kanaan is a true desert gemstone. Bordering the Namib Naukluft Park, Kanaan’s contrasting landscapes are never-ending. It is a location where nature, luxury and conservation come together. Kanaan is a spectacular destination for desert solitude; offering guests night skies that have been declared as an official, global “dark-sky-space”, excellent cuisine and landscapes that are truly out-of-this-world.
Kanaan Desert Retreat Lodge is the perfect hideaway from the Namibian heat, offering guests dinner, drinks and breakfast in a quaint, stilted restaurant with a large shaded patio. A short walk takes guests to an old dam that has been converted into a cool swimming pool accompanied by loungers and ample shade. Rooms are cleaned daily and guests may request laundry services.
The Kanaan Naankuse Desert Retreat is perfectly situated as a stop-over between the main tourist attractions of Sossusvlei, Fish River Canyon, and the Namibian harbour town, Luderitz. Kanaan is described as the highlight of the D707, because of its diverse scenery, ranging from the Tiras Mountains to the beautiful red Namib dune belt. Road D707 is also known as the most scenic route in Namibia.
