Stay at Sonop

Located at the southern edge of the Namib desert in the Karas region, Sonop is a luxurious tented camp that offers an extraordinary experience. This exceptional lodge provides the perfect retreat in the midst of a stunning panoramic desert landscape.

It’s an invitation to relive the life of an adventurer from a bygone era. The sophistication of the tents beautifully contrasts with the simplicity of the boundless surroundings.

The Pitchers

We had the most amazing time! John Barclay and his team were very special and the mobile safari exclusive and superb. Moremi was very quiet with few other tourists – no more than a dozen other vehicles seen in four days. Macatoo was also excellent with good riding and game. We were so grateful for the help that you offered when our BA flights went wrong. Many thanks again for the superb service and recommendations which made for a great holiday.
