Stay three nights at the Sossusvlei Desert Lodge on the outskirts of the vast Namib Naukluft Park. This is a spectacular base from which to explore the dramatic Namib desert, including its towering red sand dunes, the eerie scorched trees of Vlei, Sesriem Canyon and the Elim Dune Belt. Head out with a private guide to discover this remarkable landscape either on a drive, on foot or even from the sky, flying over the desert by helicopter or hot air balloon. Enjoy rustic bush dining in the Sossusvlei by candlelight, or a sundowner nature drive to watch the dramatic Namibian sun set over the dunes and the wandering oryxes. Spend your evenings under a blanket of stars on the lodge’s al fresco terrace surrounded by desert.
