Sossusvlei Desert Lodge

Sossusvlei, Namibia

Gold price level

Mango Opinion

This lovely property is a favorite in this region.   The staff has designed such an incredible variety of experiences for your visit.  They pull it off with class and sophistication but they charge for it. The observatory is a highlight!

Sossusvlei Desert Lodge is situated in the northern foothills of the vast, privately owned reserve. Set amidst an ocean of dunes, rocky outcrops and gravel plains, the utter tranquility and extraordinary clarity of light makes this area one of Africa’s most compelling landscapes. 

The stone and glass desert suites combine unprecedented sophistication with the stark beauty of the desert landscape. Each spacious air conditioned suite offers a secluded, shaded veranda complete with private plunge pool, a living room with a fireplace, a large retractable skylight above the bed, and an ensuite bathroom with a glass-encased rain shower offering 180º desert views.

The variety of activities at this lodge are endless.  In the cool of the morning venture with your guide into Sossusvlei Park to see the famous sand dunes.   Around the camp explore the oldest living desert by quad bike or foot.  Hop on an E-bike to pedal through the desert on a established trail.  Join a guide to learn more about the ancient tribes of this region viewing some rock art and artifacts or take a hike with a guide to learn about the diverse ecosystem.  In the evening join a resident astronomer at their state of the art observatory.
