Camp Sossus

Please note: Our review of this property has not yet been added. Watch this space. We're working on it.

As a tailor-made tour operator, we often have to get creative when designing your perfect itinerary.

For example, your travel consultant might add this property to your itinerary if:

Location is a significant factor
It offers a unique feature that will enhance your experience
This is a last-minute booking and room availability is limited
Cost is a factor and you'd rather splash out on another part of your trip
This is a newly opened or refurbished property that we have not inspected yet

When designing your custom itinerary we have much to consider not least of which is the value proposition of every product and service included in your quote. In all cases we strive to give you the best experience possible within your budget so please feel free to ask your travel consultant to share their reasons for including this property in your itinerary.

With just six tented rooms, Camp Sossus is a small and intimate camp compared to some of the much larger options closer to the Sesriem gate. The tents are basic with partly open-air bathrooms and bucket showers. It’s all a little rugged and rather on the rustic side but you’ll love that it’s mostly all recycled and enviro-friendly and the star bed upstairs certainly ups the game.

The communal area is spacious and inviting, the viewing deck serves up an incredible desolate view and the waterhole is an added bonus for some wildlife action, which is predominantly of oryx, springbok, zebra, kudu, hartebeest, giraffe and some smaller buck. The conservancy is also home to bat-eared fox, aardwolf and even leopard, cheetah and spotted hyena but you'd be lucky to catch these rare sightings while sipping your sundowner. The spectacular sunset, however, is guaranteed.

If you’re here by self-drive, you’ll need to meet at the designated pick-up point, from there it’s a short transfer to the camp itself and if you’re bringing the family, great news as they offer a special kiddies menu and family-fun activities. Just remember you have to stay for a minimum of two nights here, but that’s what we would usually recommend anyway to give you enough time to explore the area, see the highlights and enjoy the swimming pool.

When looking out onto the open plains and distant mountains, it’s the solitude here that takes the win. It’s as if you were far off the beaten path without actually being all that far off. That’s the wonder of the desert for you, a whole lot of everything and nothing in between and Camp Sossus serves that up in heaps.

On the Namib Tsaris Conservancy, while not exactly first pick as a “Sossusvlei” accommodation on account of its location, Camp Sossus offers up an authentic tented camp experience in a mighty fine setting with some spectacular views.

Lodge Facilities

Room Facilities


Your stay here is booked on a fully inclusive basis to include your activities with a lodge guide.

Go visit Sossusvlei (a 45 minute drive from Sesriem into the park), head off on nature drives within the conservancy, explore on foot on a nature walk or by bike. There’s enough to keep you busy and relaxing is a pastime too.

Take a transfer, a walk or ride a bike to the swimming pool and lounge out, cooling off with a view. You can radio the lodge to collect you when you're done.

Here dining in itself is an activity if you consider the setting as is sleeping out under the stars.
