SOSUSVLEI AREA lodge

Nestled against the west side of the Namib Mountains, guests can enjoy a magnificent panoramic view over the vast open plains. The lodge offers 11 individual thatch roofed comfortable and cosy chalets and an exclusive suite. The unique location in the vastness of the nature reserve offers complete peace and tranquility.

Activities are focused on exploring the nearby world-famous Sosusvlei - an enormous clay pan, flanked by the famous sand dunes that stand out starkly against the blue sky. These dunes - the most well-known being Big Daddy or Dune 45 - have developed over millions of years, the wind continuously refashioning the contours of this red sand sea. The 'vlei' itself only fills after rare heavy rainfall when, in a complete turn-around, it transforms into a spectacular turquoise lake. On the edge of the Namib, the oldest desert in the world, wildlife around the camp is fascinating in its adaptation to the harsh conditions. Sparse, yet thrilling to see, are springbok, gemsbok, ostrich, bat-eared fox, the rarely seen aardwolf and many small fauna. Excursions to the incredible dunes of Sosusvlei are a must.Explore the wonders of Sosusvlei from the luxury of a safari vehicle.
