Naankuse Ecotourism Collection - Kanaan Desert Retreat

N/a’an ku sê Ecotourism Collection

The Naankuse Ecotourism Collection – where conservation influenced the establishment of bespoke lodges in some of Namibia’s most iconic locations.  


With the mission of the Naankuse Foundation being that of conserving Namibia’s wildlife, landscapes and cultures, areas of Namibia were identified that proved to be ideal conservation locations. Be it landscape rehabilitation or prime territory for conflict animals deserving of a second chance, the urge to conserve navigated the Naankuse team to areas where conservation and ecotourism walk hand in hand. The lodges were then designed and constructed to perfectly complement the surrounding environment and its wondrous wildlife.  


The Naankuse Ecotourism Collection is the definitive example of conservation guiding ecotourism, and ecotourism subsequently supporting conservation.   Every guest entering through the welcoming doors of one of our unique establishments contributes to the Naankuse Foundation’s conservation dream.   

Situated in some of Namibia’s most breathtaking and other-worldly locations, the lodges of the Naankuse Collection combine hospitality excellence with conservation prowess. It’s the best of both worlds.
