&Beyond’s Sossusvlei Desert Lodge is nothing short of magnificent, a secluded palace in a rugged oasis in the heart of the desert, lying beneath an endless sky.
Guests are accommodated in 10 desert villas, imaginatively designed in stone and glass, which are built into the curve of the Namib Rand escarpment. Each has a living room, a bedroom with an en suite bathroom, and a private veranda.
The main lodge has a large glass-fronted dining room where you can enjoy delicious cuisine with panoramic views of the desert. There is also a glittering pool where you can relax or swim laps between safaris. The lodge has a powerful telescope, and the clear, dry air of the region means that you can see the stars in incredible detail.
From the lodge, guides will take you on excursions by vehicle into the Sossusvlei dunes, and you can also explore the Namib Rand Private Reserve in a four wheel drive vehicle and by quad bike. Your guides will point out fascinating desert-adapted plants birds and animals. Hot air balloon rides provide stunning sunrise views and private sundown dinners on the sand are the perfect way to end a day of adventure.
