As the shifting sands of the Namib Desert swirl in time to an ageless rhythm, The Burning Shore Country House rises above the wilderness in an oasis of calm, like a soothing balm upon the scorched earth. It is here, on the edge of one of the world's largest sand dunes, that visitors pay homage to the stark beauty of the Namib and the mighty expanse of the Atlantic.

Having recently achieved fame by one of the world's most famous Hollywood couples, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, who were GUESTS of the hotel whilst on their visit to Namibia, The Burning Shore is African Pride Hotels' first 5 star property outside of South Africa.

The Burning Shore offers seven Standard Rooms, 3 Luxury Rooms and one Suite, all enjoying private bathroom facilities on the beachfront at Longbeach, only 15km from either Walvis Bay or Swakopmund airports.

The Burning Shore has a sixty-seater restaurant, which serves exquisite cuisine. GUESTS can also enjoy the view from the Pleasure Flights Cocktail Bar, or head to the deck for alfresco dining, with direct access to the beach. The hotel offers a host of activities, from Quad-biking to camel rides.
