Sosusvlei is located in The Namib Naukluft park, the largest conservation area in Africa, and 4th largest in the world - surely one of the most spectacular sights in Namibia. The best time to view Sosusvlei is close to sunrise and sunset - the colors are strong and constantly changing, allowing for wonderful photographic opportunities.
Lying between a high inland plateau and the Atlantic Ocean, the Namib Desert extends along the coast of Namibia, merging with the Kaokoveld Desert into Angola in the north and south with the Karoo Desert in South Africa. The ochre-colored dunes of the Namib Desert are iconic of Namibia as a country and the renowned Sosusvlei Dune area of this arid desert region is especially well-loved for its towering red-orange sand dunes. Namibia's Namib Desert is an ideal place to experience the vastness of Africa's desert landscapes, soaking up the peace and quiet like nowhere else on earth.
Some of the highest dunes in the world are found in the Sosusvlei area, one of the top travel highlights in the Namib. Some of Sosusvlei's tallest dunes, created by the winds, reach over 300m high. Another Namib Desert attraction is the Sesriem Canyon, a deep gorge formed by the Tsauchab River about 2 million years ago. The best time to view Sosusvlei is close to sunrise and sunset; the colors are strong and constantly changing, allowing for wonderful photographic opportunities.
'Vlei' is the Afrikaans word for a shallow depression filled with water (well, a depression that might sometimes be filled with water!), and the name 'Sosusvlei' should strictly only be applied to the pan that lies at the place where the dunes close in, preventing the waters of the Tsauchab River from flowing any further - that is, on the rare occasions that the river does flow as far as this. During exceptional rainy seasons, Sosusvlei may fill with water, causing Namibians to flock there to witness the grand sight, but normally it is bone dry. This particular 'vlei' is actually a more-or-less circular, hard-surfaced depression that is almost entirely surrounded by sharp-edged dunes, beyond which lies a formidable sea of rolling sand, stretching in unbroken immensity all the way to the coast.
Throughout this vast and unforgiving landscape, a number of animals and plants have adapted to life here, including the mountain zebra, gemsbok, short-eared elephant shrew, Grant's golden mole, Karoo bustard and Peringuey's adder. There is also an extraordinary diversity of succulent plants, as well as the shrub-like Welwitschiamirabilis, which has only 2 leaves and can live for over 1,000 years!
The Lodge is situated inside the Namib Naukluft Park. Built primarily from wood, canvas and thatch in an attractive ‘Afro-village’ style, the Lodge offers guests an evocative and life-changing experience.
Due to its proximity to Sosusvlei, guests will benefit from being able to reach Sosusvlei before sunrise, and to stay until after sunset, and on their return after an exhilarating day, to relax in tranquility and splendor of the Namib Desert, under the spectacular African sky. Offering professional guided tours to fully unleash the beauty and biological diversity of the desert environment to visitors.
