Sossusvlei

A pastel-hued sandscape in central Namibia

Sossusvlei is in the Namib-Naukluft National Park, the largest conservation area in all of Africa. Here the dunes come together around a large, white salt pan, blocking the flow of the Tsauchab River. The dunes are dynamic and change shape with the wind. To the local people they are known as star dunes, as the wind carves them from all directions.

The dunes, extraordinary granite formations and endless savannah meld together, creating awe-inspiring vistas. If you are a keen photographer, it’s hard to conceive of a more striking landscape to capture. You will want to witness it from the air as well as the land: ascend in a hot air balloon at day break and watch the sunrise, dramatically shifting the colour of the dunes from crimson to ochre.
 
Sossusvlei is a vast area to explore, so though you can see migrant birds, reptiles, and rodents on foot, you should combine this with a 4x4 drive or quad bike ride. Racing across the sands and along the edge of the pan, your only company will be the antelope, ostrich and the wind whipping in your hair.

Accommodation:
Sossusvlei Desert Lodge

The Sossusvlei Desert Lodge really melts into its desert surroundings, with the clever use of open spaces and glass walls, it seems that there’s nothing at all between you and the wilderness. It’s a real gem in the &Beyond group’s range.

Accommodation:
Little Kulala

Little Kulala is the gateway to the towering dunes of Namibia's Sand Sea. The luxurious, climate-controlled kulalas blend into the natural environment and the textures and colours of the decor are inspired by the surrounding desert environment.

Accommodation:
Wolwedans Dunes Lodge

Dunes Lodge is by far the most impressive of the Wolwedans’ properties, carefully located and refined in its design. It’s a very elegant looking lodge, with a smattering of antique furnishings and African curios decorating the immaculate canvas villas dotted about the site.
