Surrounded by the mysterious mountains and sand dunes of the Namib Desert in Namibia, the Sossuvlei Desert Lodge is the perfect destination for people who seek to experience a secluded, calm and quiet escape from their everyday lives, a dream-like experience deep within the desert wilderness!
The Lodge is located in the heart of the desert, in a solitary and serene oasis which overlooks the awe-inspiring and mystical dunes, and the surrounding rock formations. The horizon seems a bit more vast in this beautiful place, and visitors often find themselves admiring it from the comfort of their serene, spacious suites, which feature outdoor showers and crystal-clear skylights over the bed, creating the most romantic setting in the world!
The lodge’s stone and glass architecture blends seamlessly into the guest areas, blending and mixing with the breathtaking surrounding desert views, whereas the lodge’s artful decoration, featuring elements of bone, slate and stone, creates an aesthetically pleasing environment. There are numerous massive windows, which open towards the vast desert scene outside, while the air conditions and cozy fireplaces ensure that the guests will remain comfortable in their luxurious suites!
Cool water from an underground spring flows into the lodge’s pool, where guests can cool off and relax. The wine cellar is quite extensive, and the gourmet dinners can be served by lantern light on the veranda, or even in a beautifully set-up table in the dunes!
At nightfall, an astronomer can help the Sossuvlei Desert Lodge’s guests get acquainted with the sky and the stars, in the observatory!
However, too much calm and quiet can get tiring, too! In order to enhance their experience, the lodge’s guests can take part in a wide variety of activities, such as scenic nature drives in open 4 x 4 vehicles, 4-wheel all terrain motorbike excursions, excursions to Sossusvlei and Sesriem Canyon in closed air-conditioned vehicles, hot air ballooning and scenic flights, and more!
