Sossus Desert Lodge

<< Back

Sossusvlei Desert Lodge (formerly Sossusvlei Mountain Lodge) is situated in the northern foothills of the 184,000ha, privately owned NamibRand Nature Reserve, some 26kms from Sesriem. The reserve lies on the eastern boundary of the Namib-Naukluft National Park. It is a small and exclusive lodge, within easy reach of the Sesriem main gate and subsequent (self-drive or organized) tour on to the fabulous dunes of Sossusvlei and Sesriem Canyon. The lodge can be reached in a saloon car.

This desert wilderness is home to a surprising variety of animals which thrive in a desert environment. Oryx, springbok, aardwolf, ostrich, hyena, bat-eared fox, Cape fox, Burchell's Zebra and Hartman's Mountain Zebra, can all be viewed here. There are also over 115 different variety of bird species here, including sociable weavers, black and martial eagles and the dune lark.

10 stone and glass split-level desert suites, have been built in the side of a mountain. Each suite is equipped to cope with the climatic extremes of the desert. Air-conditioning and outside showers for those hot summer days, and an en-suite, glass-encased bathroom and an inviting fireplace for those cold winter evenings. There is a large star-viewing window above the bed, and the rooms are equipped with a CD system, a personal compact telescope, and a service-intercom to the main lodge. The powerful telescope provides exceptional opportunities to observe the cosmos, as well as game viewing, all from the comfort of your own room.
