Kanaan Desert Retreat

The drive along the D707 between Aus towards Helmeringhausen is an area of outstanding natural beauty.

There are only  a handful of guestfarms/lodges along this route in the Tiras Mountains.  The scenery, a mixture of mountains and desert sands.

The Tirasberg is quite the hidden gem, and absolutely well worth a stay.

Perefect for a stopover between the Deep South and Sossusvlei, but equally amazing for a longer, relaxing stay in the wilderness.
