Desert Camp
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.

Just 5km from the entrance to Sossusvlei, Desert Camp offers quiet, scenic hassle-free accommodation in the middle of nowhere. And if you really don't feel like cooking for yourself, you can toddle down to the restaurant at Sossusvlei Lodge, another Taleni Africa success story.

The camp consists of 32 sun-dried brick chalets that really do look at home in the desert. Each unit has twin beds and a double sleeper couch, so great for families with young children. The bathrooms have hot running water and flushing toilets. The kitchenette forms part of the shaded verandah and the units have power points and barbecues.

From your bedroom and, well, every window in your chalet, you have a wonderful view of the desert for miles and miles around. And a truly beautiful desert it is. Formed over 20 million years ago, the blue-grey mountain range that rises out of the grassy plains gives true meaning to the expression 'as old as the hills'.

Being at the entrance to Sossusvlei is another plus for Desert Camp because, once inside, it's at least a 45-minute drive to the dunes and you'll more than likely overshoot that estimate stopping for several photoshoots of the unique scenery and maybe an oryx or two on your way.

We recommend Desert Camp as a comfortable no-frills, value-for-money self-catering accommodation option right by the entrance to Sossusvlei.
