Namibia » Sossusvlei » Lodges » Le Mirage Desert Lodge

Le Mirage Desert Lodge is located only 21 kilometres from Sesriem, the entrance gate to the Namib Naukluft Park and Sossusvlei. Sossusvlei is part of an ephemeral river system, whose route to the ocean has been cut by the ever advancing dune sea of the Namib Desert. The Namib-Naukluft Park is not only Namibia's largest park, but also one of the largest in Africa.

Le Mirage Desert lodge was designed to be a harmonious blend of luxury and nature with each room offering a spectacular view of the Namib Desert. The lodge is a 'faux' castle and the highlight of Le Mirage is the wellness centre. It has a jacuzzi and a pool.

There are 5 treatment rooms and aroma baths. It specializes in massages, pedicures, manicures, aroma massages, Thai massages and de-stress treatments. In the large courtyard guests can retreat at the swimming pool sheltered from the desert in an oasis of palm trees.

There is a restaurant, lounge, pool bar, curio shop and wine cellar. Guest of the lodge can also wine and dine in the outdoor dining area.

Guests at Le Mirage Desert Lodge are accommodated in 30 luxury rooms with en-suite facilities, air-conditioning/heating, a safe, mini bar, tea/coffee station, a telephone and hairdryers. A laundry service is also available.

Guests can visit Sossusvlei either under their own steam or as part of a guided trip. Guided quad bike trips, nature drives, as well as scenic flights and hot air balloon safaris over the Namib Desert, can also be organized. Also very popular with guests are the lodge's scenic sundowner drives.
