Sossusvlei Desert Lodge

Cradled against ancient mountains, the stone and glass desert villas of Sossusvlei Desert Lodge blend the grandeur and solitude of the Namib Desert with sophisticated elegance and comfort.

Massive windows open up onto the endless vistas, framed in the background by the ever-changing colours of the dunes. The stars shine directly on your bed through a glazed skylight. Precious water from an underground spring feeds the refreshing lodge pool, while wildlife gathers at a nearby waterhole. Dune dinners in dramatic desert locations reveal the wonders of the open spaces, and the mysteries of the star strewn skies are unlocked by a resident astronomer.

Designed to capture the splendour and solitude of the desert, just ten stone and glass suites spread out along the curve of the escarpment, allowing absolute privacy. Each air-conditioned glass-fronted suite is designed to complement the expansive views of the different habitats, perfectly framed from the spacious internal areas. Featuring a private veranda, bedroom with retractable skylights for in-bed star-gazing, a living room with a fireplace, an ensuite bathroom with a glass-encased rain shower offering 180º views, and a perfectly-positioned private plunge pool for some sublime respite after a long day in the desert heat.

All suites include star-viewing skylights, discrete music systems and customised personal bars. One of the most innovative features of the accommodation design is the way in which the extremes of the natural environment are harnessed to create energy and recycle wastewater.


Each suite is like its own solar power plant, producing enough energy to not only power the air conditioning, and all the super-comforts of a luxury lodge, but also the water treatment and recycling systems.

Surrounded by the mountains and sand dunes of the Namib Desert, Sossusvlei Desert Lodge is an escape to the world as it should be. Sheer silence, total tranquillity and romantic luxury.

Scenic drives offer an opportunity to encounter a variety of desert-adapted animals such as gemsbok, zebra, springbok, bat-eared fox, aardwolf, caracal and jackal; amongst others.
