Sossusvlei Desert Lodge

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.

On a private reserve bordering the Namib Rand Reserve (yet you're still close enough to include the highlights of Sossusvlei), Sossusvlei Desert Lodge sits against an outcrop with an endless view onto open plains, distant mountains and sand dunes. It’s a view that looks as though it could only be photo shopped, it’s that surreal.

The architectural design of the lodge blends into the background when looking from afar, but as you near, its interesting angular design catches the eye. It’s elegant and sophisticated in its palette of neutrals, rust and ochres and finished with subtle nuances of varied textures in shades of pale greys and creams. It’s inviting in its rich opulence, so understated.

Your suite, extravagant and immaculate as you look out onto the seamlessly never ending vista ahead. Everything about your stay here is indulgent, but we’ll leave that up to you to discover before we divulge any further. It’s not a five star lodge, it’s worthy of a millions stars and you can see them all from the observatory, guided by a professional astronomer or laying in bed from your stargazing skylight.

What can we say? This is a place you have to experience to know what we are talking about. The pictures don’t do it justice. It’s beyond grand. There’s simply is nothing quite like that view from your private pool, sipping on your sundowner in revered silence. Overlooking a landscape that is frankly, out of this world, it seems far-fetched that a place like this even exists and there you have it, it’s the And Beyond Sossusvlei Desert Lodge.

If you're interested in the sustainability of the lodge, take a 45 minute tour with the lodge manager to see what has been implemented and how it all works including solar and water filtration and more.

For the children they offer their WILDchild programme. Fun and interactive activities to delight the kids and spark in them a new found passion and understanding of the depths of their surroundings. Sand painting, ostrich shell art and jewellery making, San rock painting, stargazing and storytelling. By the time they leave, the kids will be telling you about the wonders of the Namib Desert. If the little ones are younger than 3 years of age, child minding services are available on request, which might come in handy as children under 3 may not join on drives.
