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.

Built on boulders, the 10 luxury tents are decorated for the 20th century explorer (of the aristocratic type). You will find ultra-modern amenities woven into 1920s colonial excess.

On a nature reserve between the NamibRand Reserve and the Tiras Mountains and 20km from the nearest town, Betta, you’re in the heart of desert country. A landscape of breath-giving open savannas, mountainous outcrops, ochre sand dunes and a gargantuan blue sky.

If you have high expectations, expect them to be met and exceeded. And if it’s a fine dining experience you want, you’re in for a treat. It’s a gastronomic affair from start to end.

Lodge Facilities

Room Facilities


Morning and afternoon scenic drives to explore the vast desert surrounds.

Head off on a mountain or trail bike if you‘re looking to get in a little exercise but, fear not, this is an E-bike which means you’re not expected to do all the leg work yourself.

With their own stables on the property, they offer 30-minute horse rides as an activity included in your stay. A peaceful way to explore the area.

An astronomy experience takes your focus to the incredibly dark night sky.

Sonop also has an open-air cinema and offers spa treatments.

Optional extra activities include: hot air ballooning; a full-day Sossusvlei safari with a champagne picnic brunch; scenic flight over the dunes. These activities are additional and are charged at additional rates.
