Welcome to the Kanaan N/a’an ku sê Desert Retreat-
N/a’an ku sê own Photographers’ Paradise
Kanaan N/a’an ku sê Desert Retreat
Visit the newest addition to the N/a’an ku sê Collection: the Kanaan N/a’an ku sê Desert Retreat, situated on 33 000 hectares of unspoilt nature. Contrasting landscapes are never-ending, with rippled sand dunes glowing in the magical light of sunrise and sunset, mountain vistas perfectly framing breathtaking views, rocky outcrops studded with quiver trees and awe-inspiring savannah and desert vistas.

In the dedicated hands of the N/a’an ku sê team, the Kanaan N/a’an ku sê Desert Retreat focuses on the rehabilitation of the land to serve a purpose other than being a photographer’s paradise - conservation and protection of the wildlife and environment. This enchanting reserve borders the Namib Naukluft Park with its breath taking photogenic dune belt to the west, and the Tiras Mountains to the east, enhancing our captivating scenery.

Kanaan is home to free roaming kudu, springbok, ostrich, oryx, caracal, hyena, bat-eared fox and jackal, there is never a shortage of animal action in front of the camera.
