Sossus Dune Lodge is located in the Namib-Naukluft Park, an ecologically unique area sandwiched between two deserts, the Namib in the west and the Kalahari in the east.
Accommodations at the lodge consist of twenty-five spacious chalets made from thatch, wood, and canvas in an environmentally sensitive manner that resembles an African village. Each chalet comes with an en suite bathroom featuring a shower, double sinks, a toilet, and a plush bathrobe and slippers. The bedrooms have two cozy three-quarter beds draped in mosquito netting. Other amenities include an in-room safe, a dresser, a lighted makeup mirror and desk, a hairdryer, and exotic African decor mixed with leather and dark wood finishing. For added privacy and relaxation, each chalet enjoys a large verandah, overlooking the vast expanse of the Namib Desert.
Sossus Dune is the only lodge situated within the Namib Naukluft National Park making it perfectly positioned for catching the orange-red glow of the sunrise off the high Sossuvlei Dunes. The park is a vast wilderness of almost 31,068 square miles and contains Sossusvlei, Sesriem Canyon, the Welwitschia Trail, Sandwich Harbour, the Naukluft Mountains, and the Kuiseb Canyon. Sossusvlei, with its enormous dunes, some of which reach up to 1,000 feet high is one of the top destinations in Namibia. Dead Pan, at the base of one of the largest dunes at Sossusvlei, is a large ghostly expanse of dried white clay, punctuated by skeletons of ancient camel-thorn trees. But when there have been good rains, the water in this dead pan attracts flamingos and other aquatic birds.
