Are you looking for a desert-chic safari? Look no further than Sossusvlei Desert Lodge in the NamibRand Nature Reserve that recently underwent a complete refurb. This oasis of calm offers luxury and casual elegance with adventure plus.
&Beyond’s Sossusvlei Desert Lodge in the NamibRand Nature Reserve, Namibia has been completely refurbished with an updated, sophisticated desert-chic look. A cool oasis that contrasts with its rugged surroundings, the lodge offers a luxurious base from which to experience a range of exhilarating desert adventures.
Designed to capture the solitude of the desert, each of the 10 stone and glass desert villas now boasts completely new interiors. Featuring split-level bedrooms and living rooms, elements of bone, slate and stone were used throughout to create a dramatic, yet entirely natural look, while rough timberwork, twiggy chandeliers and wooden sculptures mimic the craggy mountains in the distance. The dusky pink colours of the natural rose quartz found in Namibia provide a fresh contrast to the creams and greys of the interiors. Hemp rugs are strewn over pebble floors, while rustic vintage furniture and whitewashed wooden pieces fill the guest areas.
All the interiors were chosen to complement the dramatic Sossusvlei desertscape and we are delighted with the finished product which has totally rejuvenated the villas and guest areas.
With an exciting selection of unique desert adventures, stays of up to a week are guaranteed to offer a new thrill every day. From guided quadbiking and nature drives where desert-adapted wildlife such as zebra, giraffe, oryx and other smaller species can be spotted, to hikes in the nearby mountains to view Bushman paintings, guests are spoilt for choice. The lodge also has a state-of-the-art observatory where guests can explore the starry desert skies under the guidance of a resident astronomer.
Adventures available at an additional cost include guided tours from the lodge to nearby Sossusvlei where guests can scale some of the world’s tallest dunes, scenic flights and hot-air ballooning over the desert.
Mealtimes are also part of the Sossusvlei experience and decadent dinners are served in a dozen different locations, from the lodge’s open veranda or cosy wine cellar, to the middle of the majestic dunes beneath the stars. The combination of adventure with luxury desert-chic offers a unique, romantic destination that is hard to beat.
