Sossus Dune Lodge sits in an enviable location as it is the first of only two lodges built inside the restricted Sossusvlei area.
Built against low lying mountains, Sossus Dune Lodge offers views across the plains to the dunes. It has a total of 25 chalets (including 2 honeymoon suites): thirteen are on the left of the main area, with views of dunes; and the remaining 12 chalets, on the right of the main area, have mountain/canyon views.
All the chalets are very well linked by wooden walkways a few metres from the ground and each chalets is furnished in leather, dark wood and suede and has a large en-suite bathroom. The staggered chalets, looking like huts, ensure you can sit on your balcony in total privacy.
Situated within the park, guests benefit from being able to reach Sossusvlei before sunrise, and stay until after sunset. The lodge is also within walking distance of the Sesriem Canyon.
It's these privileges that sell this property. Although the lodge covers the basics, one should be prepared to sacrifice on standard for the added advantages of being the first or the last into the park.
