Sossusvlei Desert Lodge is situated in the heart of the Namib Desert on the farm Vreemdelingspoort, which is one of 11 farms that make up the NamibRand Nature Reserve.
A maximum of 20 guests are accommodated in 10 suites, built into natural rock at the foot of a mountain. Each suite has a view of expansive Namib gravel plains leading into a sea of dunes. The suites are spacious and consist of a raised bedroom with steps down to the lounge area. Above the beds is a large sky-light enabling guests to gaze at the stars from the comfort of their bed. Sliding doors from the lounge open onto a shady patio. All suites have air-conditioning for the hot summer months and fireplaces for the cold winter nights. The en suite bathroom boasts an inside and outside shower.
The main lodge building houses a dining room, reference library, and cocktail bar. Other facilities include verandas, an upstairs viewing deck and a plunge pool. The surrounding area lends itself to numerous activities which will include scenic drives and walking on the NamibRand Nature Reserve as well as excursions to Sossusvlei. As night falls, the blanket of stars in the skies above is brought to life through the lodge’s high-powered telescope.
