Sossusvlei Desert Lodge

Discover Sossusvlei Desert Lodge

Nestled deep in the heart of the world's oldest desert, the Namib, the desert oasis of Sossusvlei Desert Lodge sits in an incredibly beautiful location, surrounded by rising red dunes and rocky outcrops. The Namib Desert's vast arid plains stretch as far as the eye can see, providing the ultimate in tranquility and escapism. The lodge is impeccably designed to take full advantage of its surroundings, with floor-to-ceiling glass allowing you spectacular, unobstructed views of this unique landscape.
