Sossusvlei

Namib Desert Lodge

The Namib Desert Lodge, inside a private concession, is on the edge of the Namib-Naukluft Park with great desert views and comfortable rooms.

Namib Desert Lodge - large by Namibia's standards with 55 rooms - is a comfortable lodge in a spectacular private concession about 60km north of Sesriem. The lodge is built at the foot of the fossilised dunes on the edge of the great sand sea that is the Namib Desert.

The main lodge is a charming stone and thatch construction built around a large pool and your source of shade, a cool breeze and an iced drink. Inside there is a cosy lounge for those cool desert winter evenings as well as the restaurant and wine bar. Warm evenings will see you out on the terrace beneath a roof of stars so thick it will look fake.

The chalets are divided into four comfortable en suite rooms and your view will either be of the endless desert plain, framed by the distant Naukluft Mountains; or the fossilised dunes which form the dramatic backdrop for the lodge.

Facilities

55 rooms; en suite bathroom; private patio; large open terrace; swimming pool; restaurant; bar; wine cellar

Activities

Hiking trails; game viewing; afternoon nature drives through the fossilised dunes; Sesriem Canyon and Sossusvlei excursions

The private concession covers about 100sq km on the edge of the Namib-Naukluft Park and straddles the transition between young and old. The fossilised dunes of the protomorphic Namib are about 20 million years old. The active dunes of the sand sea, of which Sossusvlei forms a focal point, are just entering adulthood at 5 million years.

Adding to the fascinating landscapes, shapes, colours and faces is a sprinkling of desert-adapted flora and fauna that make a handy focal point for your pictures.

The Elegant Desert Lodge

On approaching Elegant Desert Lodge, about 40km from Sesriem, the first thing you will notice is that it’s not exactly all that elegant. In fact it’s a fairly solid, stone-built, thatched-roofed monolith in the typical farmstead style of the early Dutch settler.
