The stunning Kwessi Dunes Camp is located in the NamibRand Nature Reserve, a mere 75-minute drive from the famed Sossusvlei. Kwessi is open year-round for those wanting to not only explore and experience Sossusvlei and Sesriem but, more importantly, the Namib Desert as a whole.
Kwessi offers up thatched air-conditioned suites spread out at the base of dunes offering guests amazing views out over the surrounding desert.
