About Sossusvlei Desert Lodge

In the heart of the ancient Namib Desert, Sossusvlei Desert Lodge provides an oasis for any traveller. The bewilderingly beautiful views over the dunes and rocky outcrops combined with the clearest skies make for some of the most amazing vistas, unique to this part of Africa.

Lodge Details


Exclusive, private and luxurious accommodation.


Surrounded by the endless horizons and rugged mountains of the Namib Desert, on the NamibRand Reserve, accessed via the C27, south of Sesriem.

Accommodation & Facilities

There are just 10 suites, each constructed from stone and glass, set into natural rock at the foot of a mountain, with views of the fiery sand of the desert. Décor is in neutral tones, featuring the dusty pink colours of the natural rose quartz that Namibia is known for. These split level villas have a sitting area with a fireplace, a star-viewing window above the bed, and a glass encased en-suite with an indoor and outdoor shower. They are also equipped with modern amenities, such as a personal bar, CD system and a ‘spotting scope’.

The main area is split level as well, another beautiful construction of glass and stone with floor to ceiling windows to maximise your views of the oldest desert in the world.  Here you will find quiet hideaways and viewing decks, a bar, dining room, wine cellar and a terrace. There is also a viewing deck, Safari Shop, observatory and rim flow pool.

This is an unfenced camp; guests must not venture outside after dark unless accompanied by a security guard. Internet access is in the main lodge.


A stay here is usually on an all inclusive basis, and guests can dine in the dining area, or even out in the desert (weather permitting).


Enjoy a four wheel drive safari in the NamibRand Nature Reserve and a day excursion to Sossusvlei and the Sesriem Canyon (about a 7 hour round trip). You can also take part in guided nature walks, follow a marked hiking trail or join an ATV safari into the dunes (over 16’s only). At night we recommend some star-gazing from the lodge observatory. At additional cost you can embark on a hot air balloon ride over the Namib Desert.

Child Policy

Children welcome, however there is not a huge amount to keep them entertained between activities. Children must be supervised at all times – please remember that this camp is unfenced and dangerous animals can wander through at any time of the day or night.
