Sossusvlei Desert Reserve:
Thought to be one of the oldest deserts in existence, the Namib Desert is also one of the driest and most pristine regions on earth. The harsh environmental conditions have led to the evolution of numerous plant and animal species that are specially adapted to survive in the desert. In some parts of the Namib, the regular fog flowing in from the Atlantic Ocean condenses to sustain plants such as multicolored lichens and provide sufficient drinking water for some animal life. Vegetation in the Namib consists mainly of plants that can survive extended arid periods as seeds in order to flourish after rainfall.

The famous dunes of Sossusvlei have a reputation for being among the highest in the world and excursions to this spectacular spot are organized from the Lodge. Rising skywards around a shallow depression (the ‘vlei’), the dunes tower to heights of up to 200 meters (660 feet). The valley itself is lined with huge camel thorn trees, which provide refuge to many small creatures. Although it rarely occurs, in years of extreme rainfall, the Sossusvlei depression may fill up with water, creating a magical kaleidoscope of color as the surrounding dunes and gnarled trees reflect in the surface of the pool.

Cradled against ancient mountains, looking out onto a broad rocky plain that rises towards distant dunes of fiery sand, Sossusvlei Desert Lodge boasts a location that is at once dramatic and serene. Fantastically formed rock formations vie for attention with massive sand dunes as the shifting rays of the sun bring the landscape to life.
Sossusvlei Desert Lodge accommodation view
Designed to capture the splendour and solitude of the desert, beautifully appointed rooms 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 waste water. 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.
