Sossusvlei Desert Lodge
Experience the haunting beauty of the Namib Desert at Sossusvlei Desert Lodge, situated in the foothills of the private NamibRand Nature Reserve in Namibia. The Namib, known as ‘The Living Desert’, is a world of vast space, endless horizons, dramatic desertscapes and jagged mountain heights.
The split-level main lodge features a fire-lit bar, comfortable sitting room, mezzanine library with CD and book collection, swimming pool, wraparound verandas and African gift shop. The pool is fed by water from an underground spring.
Led by Sossusvlei’s expert rangers and naturalists, explore the desert by quad bikes (all-terrain 4-wheeled motorcycles), open 4×4 vehicles, or even by hot-air balloons. Excursions to the famous Sossusvlei sand dunes, the highest in the world, and Sesriem Canyon will add to this unforgettable desert-safari experience.
Visit the Sossusvlei Desert Lodge’s private observatory, boasting the most powerful electronic telescope in Namibia apart from the National Observatory. Sossusvlei’s resident astronomer will ensure that you receive an unforgettable cosmic experience.
