Best lodges and camps at Sossusvlei

Where to stay in Sossusvlei Namibia

Sossusvlei is a bucket list destination in Namibia and accommodation with Voyage2Africa includes some of the best lodges and camps in this dramatic desert region. Travel to Africa using our Sossusvlei guide for impressive places to stay with all the comforts in this wild landscape – and incredible outdoor activities too. Sossusvlei safari lodges, hotels and accommodation. Rates, pictures and special deals to these Namib Desert accommodation establishments.

Many visitors to Namibia prefer to self-drive to their Sossusvlei accommodation building fascinating itineraries and lasting memories. Fly-in safaris and tours can offer convenient organization, transfers and top hotel accommodation. 

We recommend a few nights in Little Kulala Camp, the closest luxury desert retreat to the famous, seen-from-space Sossusvlei dunes. Enjoy exclusive private concession access and the camp’s location makes early morning dune visits (to see Sossusvlei at its best) very easy. 

The best part about staying at Desert Homestead & Horse Trails is seeing the famous Sossusvlei and its valley of a thousand hills from the back of a horse, in the light of the rising sun. A great family venue.

Desert Homestead Lodge & Horse Trails

Stylish accommodation in 20 thatched chalets in the heart of Namibia’s grand desert, the Desert Homestead has not forgotten the fragility of the environment all around it. Everything is peaceful, from the fresh farm food and splendid sunrises to the ongoing dips in the swimming pool and the views extending to the Rotterkaum Mountains.

Little Kulala Camp

The 11 kulalas (chalets) at this ultra-luxurious lodge are kept cool through their clever design and essential air-conditioning – the accommodation merges into the browns and reds of the surrounding desert landscape. Think plunge pools, outdoor showers, neutral decor, wicker furniture, natural textures – wonderful reflections of the Dead Vlei outside. Choose to sleep out under the stars on a private rooftop! Little Kulala Camp is only 17 kilometers from Sesriem inside the private 37 000 hectare Kulala Wilderness Reserve.

It’s a real escape from unreal life, Desert Whisper, and maybe you will hear the whispers of the desert in the resounding silence at night? This lavish lodge is another innovation from the Gondwana Collection and is exquisitely intimate, just for two special guests. It’s a pod, like a spaceship that landed in the middle of the night and aliens walked out onto this moonscape with a difference! An ultra-private space with its one room, one kitchen, lounge and deck, plus astounding pool deck just below the lodge.

Swimming pool overlooking the desert at Kwessi Dunes in Namibia

Kwessi Dunes

This unusual safari lodge is new, only constructed in 2020, so really modern in a traditional sort of design with all the neat, thatched roofs, slick swimming pool area and astounding chalets. There are 10 airconditioned thatched chalets at Kwessie Dunes, floating in this red desert ocean with spectacular Victorian four poster beds and canvas walls. The best part about your desert suite is the extra room beside the bedroom, set aside just for stargazing. Sit quietly in your silent open air gallery, and learn all about the heavens above you.
