In operation since July 2007, Sossus Dune Lodge is built primarily from wood, canvas and thatch in an environmentally sensitive, attractive ‘Afro–village’ style, and provides sweeping vistas of the massive dunes to the west and has been .

At is it the only lodge situated actually within the Namib Naukluft Park, close to the Sesriem Canyon, guests benefit from being able to reach Sossusvlei before sunrise (when the gates to the park open) or to stay until after sunset (when they shut): one can be almost alone in the wilderness once the other visitors are gone. On returning to the lodge, guests can relax by the pool in the tranquillity of the Namib Desert under a spectacular African sky.

The comfortable accommodation is interlinked by elevated wooden walkways and consists of 23 well-spaced, en suite desert chalets equipped with tea stations and small fridges, and two honeymoon suites with an additional relaxation gazebo. All units offer magnificent open vistas of the surrounding landscape.

Sossus Dune Lodge provides professionally guided excursions to Sossusvlei, Sesriem Canyon and the surrounding areas, as well as sunset drives and guided walks.


Restaurant, swimming pool, private bathrooms with hot water showers, mini bars, mosquito nets, solar powered lighting, ceiling fans and verandahs.
