Deep in the desolate but utterly stunning Namib Desert lies Wolwedans, a superslick lodge, and if that wasn’t hermit-like enough, they have their own Private Camp, another two miles further into the bush and designed for just one couple or a small family.
If you manage to feel claustrophobic here, there might be deeper issues at work, but for the rest of us not much can beat lying back in the hammock on the wooden deck, watching the sun go down. There is so little light pollution here that you can see stars right down to the horizon.
When the emptiness and sheer silence of the surroundings eventually sinks in, you can decide to knock up a delicious supper in the fully stocked kitchen or ring the lodge proper so they can deliver a gourmet feast by Land Rover.
Next decision - sleep in the sumptuous double bed with the canvas sides to the bedroom rolled up or down. Dilemmas, dilemmas.
All this doesn't come cheap - but with privacy the new luxury, this is a luxurious as it gets, and perfect for honeymooners.
