With its looming red dunes and otherworldly landscapes in the southern part of the Namib Desert, Sossusvlei is Namibia’s most popular tourist destination. Travellers come to see climb the dunes and watch the sands change colour from red to orange to pink. And yet, the remoteness of this vast area can make it feel like you’re sharing it with only a few other people – undoubtedly true when staying at one of the luxury camps or lodges. We’ve handpicked our favourites where you can expect private plunge pools, outdoor star beds, personal butlers and flights into private airstrips. Our Africa Travel Experts recommend including a trip into Sossusvlei as part of your wider holiday to Namibia – and they’re just a phone call away to help plan your tailor-made itinerary or do-it-yourself fly drive.
