Sossusvlei / Namib, Namibia
Cradled against ancient mountains, looking out onto a broad
rocky plain that rises towards distant dunes of fiery sand,
Sossusvlei Desert Lodge boasts a location that is at once dramatic
and serene. Fantastically formed rock formations vie for attention
with massive sand dunes as the shifting rays of the sun bring the
landscape to life.
With just ten villas constructed of stone and glass, guests can
enjoy the solitary splendour of this remote landscape in privacy.
Suites are air conditioned against the searing heat of day and cosy
fireplaces ward off the chill of winter nights.
Minimalist interiors echo the stark elegance of the outdoors.
Massive windows in the split-level bedroom and sitting room, as
well as the ensuite bathroom, open onto the wide plains. Lose
yourself in the breathtaking beauty of the desert from the comfort
of your private veranda or experience the unaccustomed luxury of an
outdoor shower with a view. A glazed glass skylight above the king
sized bed lets in the blazing beauty of a clear night sky crammed
with stars and your own personal spotting scope reveals clear
details of both stars and wildlife.
