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.

Accommodation at the 'Lodge' part of Little Sossus Lodge and Campsite consists of 19 individual stone and screed chalets with corrugated iron roofing in the classic Afrikaaner farmstead style. Cool and dark against the searing white light of the desert the chalets have a homemadey feel to them from the curtain separating the living from the en suite bathroom to the four-poster drapes and wrought-iron and wooden furniture.

The main lodge is built in similar style with a large stone bar counter, comfy sofas and shaded seating around that all-essential item - a swimming pool. The lodge offers a menu featuring homegrown produce, a decent selection of South African wines and there's always wild venison and good Namibian beef to look forward to.

Little Sossus Lodge is surrounded by the pure white grasses of the Namib Desert with the indigo shadows of the Naukluft range forming a dramatic backdrop. Acacias dot the plains, beacons of vitality in the paper-dry air.

It's a basic lodge that really offers just that - the basics. This could do for a night or two, it's neat and comfortable. It certainly isn't luxury and doesn't claim to be. Look forward to the views and the serenity same as every other lodge in this vast and oh-so-very-old desert.  

Little Sossus Campsite is a good option for self-drive campers. Situated inside their private reserve, each campsite has its own ablutions with hot water and flushing toilets, private kitchen and washing facilities, a shaded area and electrical points. Hardly camping at all, really, but in fact you get the best of both worlds: sleeping under the stars but with all the vital comforts of home.
