Sossusvlei Desert Lodge

Last updated: 03 December, 2023

Set in a private concession bordering both southern Africa’s largest private reserve and the Namib-Naukluft National Park, the lodge offers a handful of luxury suites boasting private plunge pools and views out over desert plains.

A resident astronomer and on-site observatory ensure unforgettable stargazing. Daily game drives (andBeyond field guides are some of the best in the business) take in enigmatic desert landscapes, while quad bike adventures and nature walks fill the days not spent lazing by the pool.

Day trips to the magnificent dunes at Sossusvlei are also on offer.

Surrounding area

Situated on a private concession, each of the lodge’s 12 stone-and-glass villas take full advantage of the wide-angle views.

With no dangerous predators (bar a few shy leopard) on the property, you’re also free to wander at will, so walks to soak up the desert silence are a must.

This is empty, enigmatic Namibia at its best.
