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.

  • 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

  • We had a fantastic time. Thank you and it went smoothly in the main except for British Airways!

    The trip had the right degree of luxury and relaxation (for me) and adventure (all of us).

    A few points:
    Driving directions to Umlunghi Lodge were slightly wrong. The driving directions should read at the 4th roundabout take the first exit and turn right over the railway. We loved it there. Anton, Bianca and her son and Harriet were very informative and entertaining. The snake talk and handling, night walks and seeing scorpions and the walk in the bush and "bumping" into a giraffe were really special. The kayak trip to Makuzi pan that the lodge organised was good and Tomaz was very informative and kept a respectful distance from the hippos.3 nights was plenty.

    Rhino River Lodge game reserve was incredibly luxurious and we felt very looked after. The lion siting in camp the day we arrived sent an extra frisson of excitement down our spines. It was easy to forget there were predators that could attack us with all that luxury. The staff and guides (Karl) were knowledgeable and invested in their set up. We saw rhinos with baby, cheetahs with young, porcupine, Genet, wildebeast, Impala, Lion with young, buffalo, a puff adder, ostrich, zebra and giraffes. 4 nights was also plenty.
    They all served great food but I felt Ghost Mountain Inn topped the lot. The variety was amazing. We arrived at 10.30 but could not get into our room until 2 ish. The service was not so personal I guess because it is larger (far more than 50 rooms). We had been a bit spoilt at Rhino River! My daughter and I had some treatments at the Spa and loved it. We also went on a large boat trip on Jonzi and had a closer encounter with a large bull hippo and also a hike up Ghost Mountain with Patrick who was very informative and passionate about his people and his country. Isaac the other guide there took us on the boat trip and pointed out the sugar cane harvest on the way. he was very informative also.

    Lastly, Lalaria Lodge was fabulous and we all piled into the surf of the Indian Ocean. There was hardly anyone on the beach. It was "too cold" according to the landlady. The view from her terrace was of the ocean and whales breaching in the distance. I could have sat there all day. She very kindly provided us with a Scrabble board of her own for us to play. We took a Microlight ride from Ballito over the coastline in the hope of seeing whales and dolphins but no luck. If we had stayed longer we might have gone on a boat trip from Durban. We had a meal at a restaurant called Mozambique which was great fun with vast portions, plenty of carbs and fresh seafood!

    The value of the Rand to the Pound was excellent and therefore we felt that we got excellent value which also played a large part!
