Sossus Dune Lodge’s Ovambo style huts rest at the base of a mountain overlooking the poignant, star-shaped, red dunes of the Namib Desert, some as high as 325 meters. The lodge is located merely a short walk from the Sesriem Canyon and is the only hotel inside the Namib Naukluft Park, Namibia’s most versatile conservation area and a vast wilderness of almost 50 000 square km.

The spacious lodge offers many central areas where guests can relax. Sink into a deep leather chair in the light lounge and enjoy breathtaking views of maroon, apricot and orange tints of sand that contrast with the dazzling white surfaces of the desert’s large clay pans or retreat to the library with a book. Those who prefer can enjoy a drink at the sumptuous indoor bar, sip sundowners on the deck, or cool off from the Namibian sunshine in the sapphire pool.

Guests can choose from 23 spacious, en suite desert chalets with twin beds or two honeymoon suites, each with a private gazebo. Modern furnishings, richly coloured curtains and luxurious white linen compliment polished wood floors, airy thatch ceilings and cool canvas walls in these desert retreats. Chalets are built in an environmentally sensitive style and raised on stilts to minimise impact on the environment. All suites open onto a private terrace overlooking the surrounding dunes and are interlinked by wooden walkways.
