Description, Services & Facilities

Secluded and serene, Sossusveli Desert Lodge looks out over the vast desert wilderness of the Namib Desert with dunes, mountains and rocky outcrops dominating the landscape. A member of the luxury &Beyond Reserves and Lodges collections, this tranquil lodge is run by passionate staff eager to inspire their guests. With just 10 stone and glass villas, privacy is guaranteed, ideal for a romantic retreat for two or a memorable family holiday; little ones receive a personalised welcome note on arrival and under-3’s an African-themed soft toy. Spend days spotting unique desert wildlife including herds of gemsbok, explore the landscape on a guided nature walk or quad bike through the dunes. Wind down in the evening star gazing at the lodge’s observatory or from the skylight in your bedroom.
