Mountain Homestead used to be called Sossusvlei Wilderness Camp, but reopened on 1st July 2010 under new management. It is situated 34 kilometres from Sesriem, the entrance to Sossusvlei.

Mountain Homestead is situated on the 21000 hectare Kulala Wilderness Reserve with wonderful desert scenery. It affords access to Sossusvlei, but also offers privacy and exclusivity. The property harbours vast desert plains and rugged mountains with views onto the dunes in the distance.

Mountain Homestead has been built near the top of a mountain, using natural materials of brick, rock, timber and thatch, and provides a refuge from the desert. It is the ideal destination for visitors who wish to see the dunes of Sossusvlei without having to travel large distances once in the Namib Desert to see them.

The main living area at Mountain Homestead is under thatch with a pool. The lodge offers an outdoor deck where guests enjoy dinner under the stars and a dedicated stargazing platform with a powerful telescope for those keen on admiring the night skies.

Accommodation at Mountain Homestead is on one of only 9 guest rooms, each with its own private plunge pool. All rooms are superbly appointed and offer comfort and atmosphere. The en-suite bathrooms also have panoramic views overlooking the plains below and have hot and cold running water, showers and flush toilets.
