Sossusvlei Lodge is a comfortable and welcoming lodge on the edge of the Sossusvlei dunes. Service and attention to detail is thorough and the chalets have private patios overlooking a floodlit waterhole and the desert and mountains beyond.
Despite its elaborate entrance, Sossuvlei Lodge is a down-to-earth lodge that offers good value and excellent service.
The 45 chalets have interesting stretched canvas roofs over half walls. The chalets have a slight African theme and are neat and comfortable with tiled floors, canvas sides and a flat-roofed adobe bathroom tacked onto the back.
Each chalet has a private patio that looks out over a floodlit waterhole and the 44,000 hectares of private desert reserve. The rooms fan out sideways from the main complex, which is a maze of bars, dining areas, terraces, and a large swimming pool.

Activities include nature trails on quad bikes, hikes, scenic flights and balloon rides, sundowner drives, bush dinners, and guided excursions to the dunes.
The private reserve is a fascinating showcase for the ancient living desert of the Namib. Desert-adapted species of animals, birds, plants, insects and reptiles make for an interesting and out of the ordinary nature experience.
