Sossusvlei Desert Lodge vistas
Experience the haunting beauty of the Namib Desert at &Beyond's Sossusvlei Desert Lodge (ex Sossusvlei Mountain Lodge), situated in the foothills of the private NamibRand Nature Reserve in Namibia.

A calm oasis of peace and comfort in the midst of the world’s oldest desert, Sossusvlei Desert Lodge offers a cosy and comfortable refuge in the vastness of this strange and beautiful land.

Let lose your inner child in this ultimate private playground, with its sandy dunes and surreal landscape, as you indulge in dune dinners and picnics in fairy circles.

The Namib – known as ‘The Living Desert’ – is a world of vast space, endless horizons, dramatic desertscapes and jagged mountain heights. Led by Sossusvlei’s expert rangers and naturalists, explore the desert by quad bikes (all-terrain four-wheeled motorcycles), open 4x4 vehicles – even by hot-air balloon. Excursions to the famous Sossusvlei sand dunes, the highest in the world, and Sesriem Canyon will add to this unforgettable desert-safari experience.

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 - interior
Designed to capture the splendour and solitude of the desert, 10 beautifully appointed stone and glass suites, spread out along the curve of the escarpment, open onto ever-changing outlooks. Each spacious, air conditioned, glass-fronted suite offers a secluded, shaded veranda complete with private plunge pool, a living room with a fireplace, a large retractable skylight for in-bed star-gazing, and an en-suite bathroom with a glass-encased rain shower offering 180º desert views.
Sossusvlei Desert Lodge accommodation exterior
The two-bedroomed Star Dune Suite is an ideal option for families or groups of friends, consisting of two suites linked by a covered walkway, with a private lounge and dining space. The combined amenities of this extended accommodation provide the perfect space for one and all to enjoy. For those family groups, our &Beyond guides and lodge team will provide a host of fun and interactive children’s activities. The Star Dune Suite sleeps a maximum 4 adults or 2 adults + 2 children (3 children on request).

All suites include discrete music systems and customized 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.

Sustainability and uncompromized luxury go hand in hand at Sossusvlei Desert Lodge.
