Welcome to Klein-Aus Vista

Dear fellow Namibians,

We are open!

With certain regulations still in place, social distancing in the restaurant and the wearing of masks, all our accommodation options are available to be booked.
At The Desert Kitchen restaurant, we serve various meal options from our A La Carte menu. Ice cold beer on tap, wines and hard liquor are back on offer, with some amazing wine and craft beer specials. Please note that pre-bookings for our restaurant are required by calling us in advance or reserving upon arrival at the reception. Day visitors are welcome upon pre-booking.
Our lodge shop offers firewood, basic groceries, frozen meat, home-made salty & sweet snacks, jams & sauces and freshly baked bread on order – ideal for your camping trip.
During the next months while our country borders are still shut for foreign travelers, we would like to encourage our fellow Namibians to support the local tourism industry. Please enquire regarding our up to 60% discount rates on accommodation for all Namibians.
At Klein-Aus Vista, we also offer self-catering options at our Desert Horse Campsite, Geisterschlucht Cabin, Eagle’s Nest Chalets as well as at Desert Horse Inn.

Until middle of August, the Wild Flowers will be blooming in the vicinity of Aus. Klein-Aus Vista offers guided trips to view the flower fields in the Gondwana Sperrgebiet Rand Park.

There is something extraordinarily special about the landscape around Klein-Aus Vista.
It is where streaks of Namib sand merge with the bleached grasses of the Pro-Namib in
a sensuous slow dance of splendour.
The lodge, nestled in the rocky Aus Mountains, is famed for its extensive and lovely vistas, best seen from one of the mountain bike or hiking trails, a viewpoint above the Klein-Aus Vista campsite or from the secluded Eagle’s Nest Chalets. Contributing to the scenery, the Wild Horses of the Namib remind us of untethered freedom and appeal to our soul to embrace the wonderful adventure of life in its entirety.

Desert Horse Inn is imbued with the energy of the horses, adding a spirited component to the warmth of the family-owned lodge. As the pastel landscape transforms into desert en route to Lüderitz and the coast, there is the abandoned diamond mining town of Kolmanskop to visit where disintegrating houses are a photographer’s playground, a desert town to discover and fascinating promontories to explore. For the more adventurous we recommend our Rustic Geisterschlucht Cabin
