Namib Desert Lodge sits at the very foot of the 'fossilised' dunes of the protomorphic Namib. Situated just 60 km north of Sesriem, the gateway to famous Sossusvlei, and not far from the main road, the lodge is an ideal starting point for an excursion to the highest dunes in the world.
Sossusvlei is situated right in the middle of the dune Namib, the sand sea which covers south-western Namibia between the Kuiseb River east of Walvis Bay and the tar road from Aus to Lüderitz. The entire area is part of the national Namib Naukluft Park. Visitor access is limited to a few places only.
The Lodge is set among tall trees and palms, there is a restaurant and swimming pool, all of which invite you to linger and relax. Join a drive through the magnificent scenery or just enjoy the thrill of Gemsbok and Springbok frequenting the illuminated watering hole after dusk.
There are 65 en-suite rooms with bathroom and private veranda, allowing you to sit outside your room and enjoy a spectacular desert sunset.
Rooms are divided into the following options;
- 57 Twin rooms
- 3 Family rooms
- 4 Triple rooms
- 1 room suitable for guests with restricted mobility
The thatched restaurant is generously appointed and also includes a cosy bar and a cellar well-stocked with excellent South African wines.
Dinners are in general a buffet styled affair, with three courses on offer. A light lunch menu offers up the likes of hamburgers, pizzas and salads.
A wide selection of beer, cool drinks and wine is available from the bar or service staff.
