Few eco-destinations in the Northern Cape are as scenic as Witsand Nature Reserve and even fewer boast the luxury accommodation we offer our visitors. Witsand Nature Reserve is a scenic park, teeming with bird life, including the Namaqua sandgrouse, sociable weaver and Africa's smallest raptor - the pygmy falcon.

Only we can offer you sensual, flowing white dunes - twenty to sixty metres high - surrounded by copper-red Kalahari sand, Acacia woodland and the Langberg Mountain range. Home of the famous ‘Brulsand’ or Roaring Sands of the Kalahari. Under the right conditions, these dunes utter an eerie rumble when disturbed. Although the dune vegetation is generally-speaking sparse, it is complex and not easy to identify the different plant communities. On the plains surrounding the dunes, the vegetation is characteristically Kalahari Thornveld invaded by Karoo-type vegetation.
