Overview

A Little Sossus Lodge is a laidback and tranquil property set within the vast, open plains of the stunningly beautiful Namib Desert. The property’s site has an open feel and guests are free to wander around and enjoy the spectacular views of the dusty desert plains and the towering mountains in the distance. While the lodge is simple and very remote, it has enough amenities and facilities for a comfortable stay along with access to some of Namibia’s most jaw-dropping landscapes.

Guests can choose to stay in a chalet or a tent. There are 20 stone-walled chalets, all of which are fairly large in size and are well spaced apart for privacy. Each chalet comes with fans and electric lights that are charged by a wind generator throughout the day. They also have an en-suite bathroom with complimentary, environmentally-friendly toiletries included. For those looking to stay in tents, there are a total of ten campsites dotted about the property. Each one of these has its own bathroom facilities, kitchen area, hot water supply and power supply.

The Namib-Naukluft National Park, Africa’s largest game park and the world’s fourth largest, is a key attraction. The park is known for its expansive, unspoiled desert landscapes and its towering sand dunes, which are among the largest in the world. One of the park’s most popular attractions is Sossusvlei, a white salt and clay pan surrounded by gigantic red and orange dunes that reach nearly four hundred metres in height in some places. While visitors are free to explore the park independently, it’s worth considering a tour led by the lodge’s professional guides who will provide in-depth knowledge about the surroundings. Early evening drives up to a mountain vantage point to watch the sunset, with light snacks and drinks, are also available.

The lodge’s restaurant serves breakfast, lunch and dinner daily, with menus featuring a range of local dishes and international favourites. There’s a verandah where guests can eat al fresco or just relax and take in the desert views. There’s also has an indoor lounge with African decor, and a shop selling sundries and souvenirs.

The lodge welcomes children of all ages. Four of the chalets are a bit larger than the others and come with four beds each, ideal for families. Three of the campsites also work well for anyone travelling with youngsters.

  • It was FANTASTIC! Beautifully organised, everything worked like clockwork. We agreed that we had the best support team ever (and we have experience) - all delightful, very professional and nothing was too much bother.

    It clearly couldn't have been a better route, such a wonderful mix of landscapes. And plenty of acclimatisation time. Nonetheless, I was glad of my summit oxygen.

    Kit excellent. Double good mattresses made for most comfortable trek camping ever. Tents v good. Mess tent pretty windproof, which was vital for enjoyment. Best camp loo ever!

    My favourite day was Shira Cathedral. Amazing.

  • Hi Lisa,

    The safari trip was excellent! The stay, the food and the people were all very nice. We were happy to have Ryan and Stanley as our game drive guides they brought us up close to the animals and Ryan gave very good information throughout.

    Would definitely recommend to friends who are interested in safaris :)

    Also, thanks much for your help, particularly keeping the room for my Brother and his wife they’ve enjoyed the safari very much too!

    Best regards,
    Woan Chyi

  • We had a fantastic time and all the arrangements worked perfectly.
    We were very impressed with the quality and service levels of all 4 locations visited and it was truly a holiday of a lifetime.
    Thank you to you and to Lisa for giving us this experience.
    Particular highlights for us – really the whole experience, but of particular impact:
    Breathtaking scenery at Cathedral Peak Hotel
    Rhino Ridge game drives incredible, thanks to guide (we had their head guide, Hala, who’s knowledge, enthusiasm, kindness, interaction, ability to spot wildlife was out of this world)
    Luxury of Rhino Ridge (shower, food, views, service)
    Immersion in nature, torch lit meal on last night and beach trip at Kosi Forest Lodge
    Level of service, quality of food throughout
