Namib Campaign Desk


The Namib Campaign Desk is part of our quartet of interesting Campaign Desks. Sporting our signature curved legs and solid brass connecting rod and fittings, it is built of solid African hardwood right through. The legs fold neatly away and the whole packs into a snug crate for shipping. Assembly is very easy with instruction provided.

Drawers run on stainless steel roller bearing slides for a smooth slide in and out. The finishing coat used on all our Campaign Desks is the latest environmentally friendly water based lacquer imported from Italy.

For more information on our Namib Campaign Desk, please see Product Details below:

This beautiful home office desk piece is named after the Namib Desert of south western Africa, the oldest desert in the world. It is built from beautiful African hardwoods, as tough and rugged as that most intriguing of lands. Known to the local ancient inhabitants as ‘The Land God made in vain’.

The Namib Campaign Desk is expertly constructed by our master craftsmen using intricate sliding dovetail and through dovetail wood to wood joints. To quote Fine Woodworking magazine:

‘Considered one of the strongest and certainly the most beautiful of joints, the dovetail exacts a stiff price in terms of skill for the strength and good looks it provides.

Dovetails are probably the strongest method for joining two pieces of wood, surface to surface. With the grain running in the same direction. The dovetail joint provides considerable mechanical strength because when the joint is assembled, it can’t be twisted or racked. And the shape of the dovetail makes it impossible to take apart in one direction and difficult in the other. This joint stays together — even without glue!’

The Namib Campaign Desk is ideal for use as a home office desk or as an upmarket office desk at your work.  Safari Camps, lodges or hotels can use The Namib Campaign Desk as a desk in guest rooms and tents. It also works well as a desk come dressing table.  We recommend the Chobe Chair as a perfect match for this desk.  One note to consider when choosing a chair for this particular desk – chairs with arms such as our Safari Director’s Chair do not fit under the desk.  It’s best to choose a chair without armrests.

Lacquer finish:

To protect your lacquered finish please place your Namib Campaign Desk away from direct sunlight. Apply a good furniture wax or polish, initially twice a month, thereafter once a month, sufficient to thinly cover the surface. As it dries (becomes dull) buff with a clean cloth until a beautiful sheen is achieved. Between waxings, keep the finish clean with a soft cloth or duster, and buff without wax.

The Namib Campaign Desk packs very conveniently for international shipping. The legs disassemble easily and the brass connecting bar unbolts. The desk ‘box’ is packed with soft Air-o-thene packing into a thick walled cardboard box. The legs and connecting rods are then carefully wrapped and the whole sealed. Loose bolts, joining screws etc will be placed in a packet in one of the drawers. The Namib Campaign Desk can be sent either by airfreight to your nearest airport, or by sea freight.

An excellent chair to go with the Namib Campaign Desk is the Okavango Leather Chair. It has also been designed to flat pack for economic shipping.
