The NamibRand Nature Reserve is a private nature reserve in Southwestern Namibia in the Namib Desert.

Founded in 1984 by J.A. (Albi) Brückner, it has more than 215,000 hectares (2,150 km2) and shares a large border with Namib-Naukluft National Park to the west and the Nubib mountains to the east.

In 2012, the International Dark-Sky Association designated this as an International Dark-Sky Reserve.
