At the base of a mountain, Sossus Dune Lodge is the only lodge situated within the Namib-Naukluft National Park only 4km from the Sesriem gate giving guests the benefit of being able to reach Sossusvlei before sunrise and leave after sunset. As well as this, guests can walk directly from the lodge to the Sesriem Canyon. To the west of the lodge are magnificent views of the distant dunes.
Sossus Dune Lodge is built primarily from wood, canvas and thatch, in an attractive 'afro-village' style. It offers 25 spacious chalets, 13 of which are on the left of the main area giving views of the dunes. The remaining 12 chalets on the right, have views of the mountains and the Sesriem Canyon. The chalets are all linked by raised wooden walkways. They come complete with ensuite bathroom with a hot shower, double basin and flush toilet. There are twin beds, brightly-coloured mosquito nets, solar powered lights, fans and a verandah. The great views of the surrounding desert are obtained through frontal floor-to-ceiling glass windows.
Sossus Dune Lodge's main areas are raised on wooden decking with a small reception room, large open-plan restaurant with separate lounge/bar areas, all fitted with large sliding doors. For a cool down after a long day in the desert there is a swimming pool with loungers. The lodge offers a haven in which to relax in the tranquility and splendour of the Namib Desert, under the spectacular African sky.
