Sossusvlei Desert Lodge (previously known as Sossusvlei Mountain Lodge) is situated near Sossusvlei, in the foothills of the private NamibRand Nature Reserve in Namibia.

Sossusvlei Desert Lodge is renowned for its luxurious and private accommodation set at the foot of a mountain overlooking the stark, yet beautiful Namib Desert. Designed to capture the splendour and solitude of the desert, each stone and glass desert villa is set along the curve of the escarpment, affording absolute privacy. Each villa features a shaded private veranda, split-level bedroom and living room with fireplace, fully-stocked personal bar, compact spotting scope and a service-intercom to the main lodge.

A fine selection of wines from our walk-in wine cellar complements delicious Pan-African cuisine, which is served in the glass-fronted dining room. The split-level main lodge features a fire-lit bar, comfortable sitting room, mezzanine library with CD and book collection, swimming pool, wraparound verandas and African gift shop. The pool is fed by water from an underground spring. At sunset, animals are drawn to a nearby waterhole, providing added enjoyment to a sundowner drink. Sossusvlei Desert Lodge is renowned for its exciting bush breakfasts and dinners in dramatic desert locations.

Activities at Sossusvlei Desert Lodge includes a range of exhilarating activities including scenic game drives in open 4x4 vehicles in the NamibRand Nature Reserve, quadbiking through the desert, exploring beautiful surrounds by guided and marked walking trails, stargazing and picnic excursions to the famous Sossusvlei sand dunes - the highest in the world - and Sesriem Canyon. Scenic flights and hot air balloon trips are available at an additional cost.
