Sossusvlei Desert Lodge


Renowned for its luxurious and private accommodation

andBeyond's Sossusvlei Desert Lodge is an extraordinary safari lodge renowned for its luxurious and private accommodation. It's set at the foot of a mountain overlooking the stark, yet beautiful Namib Desert. Designed to capture the splendour and solitude of the desert, each stone and glass desert villa is set along the curve of the escarpment, affording absolute privacy. Each villa features a shaded private veranda, split-level bedroom and living room with fireplace, fully-stocked personal bar, compact spotting scope and a service-intercom to the main lodge. 

A fine selection of wines from the walk-in wine cellar complements delicious Pan-African cuisine, which is served in the glass-fronted dining room. The split-level main lodge features a fire-lit bar, comfortable sitting room, mezzanine library with CD and book collection, swimming pool, wraparound verandas and African gift shop. The pool is fed by water from an underground spring. At sunset, animals are drawn to a nearby waterhole, providing added enjoyment to a sundowner drink. Sossusvlei Desert Lodge is famous for its exciting bush breakfasts and dinners in dramatic desert locations.

Sossusvlei Desert Lodge is best accessed via the private airstrip that lies only six minutes drive from the lodge itself, ensuring you make the most of your time to relax and enjoy your surroudings. Flights are frequent from Windhoek and other popular destinations. The lodge is accessible by road but journeys in Namibia are often long and cut into valuable time spent at your destination.

An extraordinary safari lodge 

The lodge is situated in the foothills of the private NamibRand Nature Reserve in Namibia. Thanks to conservation efforts, the NamibRand spans 180,000 hectares (445,000 acres) of pristine desert wilderness, and is the largest private nature reserve in Southern Africa. With a private entrance to Sossusvlei guests at Sossusvlei Desert Lodge have the chance to beat the crowds and reach the top of the dunes before sunrise - a key advantage over other lodges in the area.

The Namib – known as ‘The Living Desert’ – is a world of vast space, endless horizons, dramatic desert scapes and jagged mountain heights. Led by Sossusvlei’s expert rangers and naturalists, explore the desert by quadbikes (all-terrain four-wheeled motorcycles), open 4x4 vehicles – even by hot-air balloon. Excursions to the famous Namibian Sossusvlei sand dunes, the highest in the world, and Sesriem Canyon will add to this unforgettable desert-safari experience.

You can also experience incredible stargazing at &Beyond Sossusvlei Desert Lodge's observatory, home to professional astronomers and a Meade LX200R 12 inch telescope. The NamibRand is Africa’s first International Dark Sky Reserve (IDSR), meaning there is no impact from light pollution and artificial light on your star-watching experience. You can even enjoy the unique Namibian night sky from the luxury of your villa through a sky light above you bed.
