If you’ve always dreamt of watching the sunrise over the dunes of Sossusvlei, you’ll want to book a room at Sossus Dune Lodge.

It’s the only lodge inside the Namib-Naukluft Park, which means you can get to Sossusvlei’s famous sand dunes long before the public gates at Sesriem open at sunrise.

The lodge’s 25 roomy chalets are strung out along a wooden boardwalk, offering wonderful desert views from the spacious suites. Chalets 13-25 have views of the dunes (preferable), while 1-12 look into Sesriem Canyon.

Surrounding area

The ochre dunes of the Namib-Naukluft National Park are one of Namibia’s most sought-after sights, and the wood-and-thatch suites of Sossus Dune Lodge take full advantage of their dramatic desert location.

Scrubby plains stretch away to a horizon of ever-shifting sands that provide plenty of entertainment from each suite’s private wooden deck.
