Location is a significant factor

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.

Namib Desert Lodge - large by Namibia's standards with 76 rooms - is a comfortable lodge in a spectacular private concession about 60km north of Sesriem. The lodge is built at the foot of the fossilised dunes on the edge of the great sand sea that is the Namib Desert.

The main lodge is a charming stone and thatch construction built around two large pools and your source of shade, a cool breeze and an iced drink. Inside there is a cosy lounge for those cool desert winter evenings as well as the restaurant and bar. Warm evenings will see you out on the terrace beneath a roof of stars so thick it will look fake.

The rooms set out on either side of the main lodge area with a view of either the endless desert plain, framed by the distant Naukluft Mountains; or the fossilised dunes which form the dramatic backdrop for the lodge. Lit up at night, this becomes the central focus point.

Hiking trails; morning or afternoon nature drives through the fossilised dunes

The private concession covers about 100sq km on the edge of the Namib-Naukluft Park and straddles the transition between young and old. The fossilised dunes of the protomorphic Namib are about 20 million years old. The active dunes of the sand sea, of which Sossusvlei forms a focal point, are just entering adulthood at 5 million years.

Adding to the fascinating landscapes, shapes, colours and faces is a sprinkling of desert-adapted flora and fauna that make a handy focal point for your pictures.

Head to Sossusvlei on a self-drive basis. This calls for an early start as it is 60km to Sesriem and a further 60km to reach Sossusvlei and Dead Vlei.
