Experience the haunting beauty of the Namib Desert at AndBeyond Sossusvlei Desert Lodge, situated in the foothills of the private NamibRand Nature Reserve in Namibia. This extraordinary lodge is renowned for its luxurious and private accommodation.
Thanks to conservation efforts, the NamibRand spans 180,000 hectares of pristine desert wilderness, and is the largest private nature reserve in Southern Africa.
The Namib - known as 'The Living Desert' - is a world of vast space, endless horizons, dramatic desertscapes and jagged mountain heights.
Led by Sossusvlei's expert rangers and naturalists, explore the desert by quadbikes (all-terrain four-wheeled motorcycles), open 4x4 vehicles - even by hot-air balloon.
Excursions to the famous Sossusvlei sand dunes, the highest in the world, and Sesriem Canyon will add to this unforgettable desert experience.
The lodge comprises of 10 air-conditioned stone and a glass desert villas set along the curve of the escarpment that feature a bedroom with retractable skylights for in-bed star-gazing, a living room with a fireplace, an en-suite bathroom with a glass-encased rain shower offering 180º views, and a perfectly-positioned private plunge pool for some sublime respite after a long day in the desert heat.
The guest area features floor to ceiling, frameless glass panels that fold away to reveal unobstructed desert vistas. An interactive kitchen allows guests to create their own dishes and a fine selection of wines complements sublime meals. Other features include a one-of-a-kind gym, a 2-part wellness centre offering a treatment room and a private spa-bath, as well as a wet treatment room.
For those wishing for more privacy, the 2 bedroomed Star Dune Suite is ideal for families or groups of friends. Linked by a covered walkway, the suite features a private lounge and dining space, and the amenities of this extended accommodation provide the perfect space for one and all to enjoy.
