Sossusvlei Desert Lodge lies in the echoing foothills of the Namib Rand reserve and is the perfect choice for a unique and sophisticated desert experience. Cradled against ancient mountains, the 10 luxurious stone and glass suites follow the contours of the escarpment to ensure absolute privacy. They are designed to capture the earthy beauty of the desert, with panoramic desert views from the huge windows. The stars shine directly on your bed through a glazed skylight. Each spacious, air-conditioned stone and glass suite has its own shaded deck, split-level lounge area with fireplace for the winter evenings, en-suite bathroom and outdoor shower for starlit bathing. Colours are designed to compliment the majestic hues of the oldest living desert in the world.
The luxurious public areas at Sossusvlei Desert Lodge have fold-away glass walls to allow glorious desert vistas. The split level lodge has a fire-lit bar, sitting area, mezzanine library with an extensive CD and book collection. As the sun sets animals are drawn to a nearby waterhole so you may have a spot of game-viewing as you enjoy a drink on the deck. Water from an underground spring feeds the refreshing pool.
Activities include scenic nature drives, quad biking on the dunes, sundowner excursions, guided walks and marked walking trails in the Namib Rand private game reserve. You can also choose to head to Sossusvlei and Sesriem Canyon for the morning.
Sossusvlei Desert Lodge prides itself on its bush breakfasts and desert dinners in dramatic locations. The mysteries of the star strewn skies are unlocked by a resident astronomer from the lodge’s own observatory. Hot air ballooning and scenic flights over the desert are also available (at an additional cost).
Children are welcome at Sossusvlei Desert Lodge with one child sharing with parents in a triple room.
