In this remote world of extremes, you discover the tiny jewel that is Agama Lodge, deriving its name from the first living creature to be seen when your hosts first set foot here - a brightly coloured lizard which will often be seen around the camp in both animal and art forms. More recently, newly built chalets have been added, incorporating touches of luxury alongside practicality, plus the option to sleep under the stars, or just to stargaze if you're entranced by the night-sky.
The chalets all stand well separated from each other, on the upper banks of the Dieprevier . Mountain Camp is an additional exclusive campsite about 6 km off the road at the foot of the Naukluft mountains. All Guests are welcome to enjoy the facilities of the central reception area, including our friendly Restaurant, the cosy bar, the cool swimming pool and the large viewing platform on top of the main building.
We also have an exclusive site at the foot of the Naukluft mountains. It is some 6 km from the road, situated beside an ancient river system. Its charm is accentuated by the proximity of the surrounding mountains and its remoteness.
Two showers and two toilets
Tents, bedding, crockery, cutlery, limited firewood available for a modest fee if required. Sorry, no ice.
Apart from the opportunity to relax and unwind in idyllic surroundings, Agama Lodge is an ideal base for exploring two of the most dramatic and beautiful areas in Namibia - the iconic red dunes of Sossusvlei and the mountain scenery, flora and fauna of Naukluft Mountain Park.
Agama Lodge is located just off the C19 road between Solitaire and Sesriem.
The best way to get there is to select your route to one or other of these places, then:
Lodge on the eastern (left) side of the road.
From Sesriem, drive north along the C19 for 48 km and you will find Agama on the eastern (right) side of the road.
If necessary, seek local advice on the best route to take from your starting point
to either Solitaire or Sesriem.

Sossusvlei: a Namibian icon
Namibia's highest sand dune is to be found at Sossusvlei. Whether or not it is the tallest in the world is a matter of some dispute - how do you measure the height of constantly moving sand? Nevertheless the stunning red dunes stretching to the horizon are an iconic image of Namibia. Not to be missed.
While there, don't forget to visit Deadvlei, a white clay pan between the enormous red dunes, where dead trees, up to 900 years old, starkly and stubbornly reach towards the vivid blue sky - a truly remarkable natural sculpture. Don't forget your camera!
Driving time: approximately 45 minutes to the main gateway.
An early start is strongly recommended.
Namib Naukluft Park: one of Namibia's most beautiful regions
Walkers: self-guided trails in the nearby Naukluft mountain foothills.
Hikers will enjoy the more adventurous trails starting from Naukluft itself:-
The Olive Trail (10 km) takes you to the top of the plateau and offers
spectacular views of black eagle nests on vertical red cliffs.
The chalets are built in a rustic style on the upper banks of the Dieprevier river course.
They are very spacious, comfortably furnished and well decorated with a local African influence, offering Guests all they need during their stay.
Eight chalets stand 25 metres apart from each other for privacy.
Two chalets are linked as a family unit by a door which may be locked.
