Refresh your spirit and soothe your senses at serene Sossusvlei Desert Lodge, nestled deep in the heart of the ancient but ever-changing Namib Desert.

Perched on the edge of a rocky escarpment, this secluded getaway blends into the stark beauty of shifting sands, towering dunes and stony outcrops.

A calm oasis of peace and comfort in the midst of the world’s oldest desert, the Lodge offers a cosy and comfortable refuge in the vastness of this strange and beautiful land.

Let lose your inner child in this ultimate private playground, with its sandy dunes and surreal landscape, as you indulge in dune dinners and picnics in fairy circles.

Cradled against ancient mountains, looking out onto a broad rocky plain that rises towards distant dunes of fiery sand, Sossusvlei Desert Lodge boasts a location that is at once dramatic and serene. Fantastically formed rock formations vie for attention with massive sand dunes as the shifting rays of the sun bring the landscape to life. With just ten villas constructed of stone and glass, guests can enjoy the solitary splendour of this remote landscape in privacy. Suites are air conditioned against the searing heat of day and cosy fireplaces ward off the chill of winter nights.

Minimalist interiors echo the stark elegance of the outdoors. Massive windows in the split-level bedroom and sitting room, as well as the ensuite bathroom, open onto the wide plains. Lose yourself in the breathtaking beauty of the desert from the comfort of your private veranda or experience the unaccustomed luxury of an outdoor shower with a view. A glazed glass skylight above the king sized bed lets in the blazing beauty of a clear night sky crammed with stars and your own personal spotting scope reveals clear details of both stars and wildlife.

Guest areas flow into vast desert views, as the stone and glass structure of the Lodge melts into wraparound verandas. Cool water gushes from an underground spring into the refreshing lodge pool, while an extensive walk-in wine cellar provides refreshment of a different sort. Mouth watering dinners are served by lantern light on the open dining deck or in a surprise location in the nearby dunes.
