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, We had a fabulous time thank you. The accommodation and other ideation were all terrific - that’s so much for your help. The apartment in Cape Town was particularly good - we would never have found that: Boschendal was great as well and game lodge was superb. Thanks again, Alistair

  • Dear Lisa
    Well, we are back and still buzzing. We have had a marvellous time. The weather helped. We left Manchester in the snow and arrived in Marrakesh at 30 degrees. We were well looked after in the Riad. I'm glad we booked a meal for the first evening - ate it on the roof terrace. We can recommend that. It was delicious. We ate at the Foundouk, as per your recommendation and on the following night we ate at Le Jardin - got lost on the way to it!. We can really recommend Le Jardin.
    The following day we went to Majorelle gardens. Fortunately we had looked it up before we travelled because you have to book in advance online only from Jan 2023. We found our own way to the Medera Ben Yousef and Latifa took us to Bahia Palace - both were stunning.
    The following morning our lovely taxi driver Mohammond collected us to go to the EcoLodge. Yet another Mohammond made us very welcome. Again we ate well! You were right, the pool was freezing, but I can't sit next to water and not get in. Once you're in you forget how cold it is! I wasn't the only person to try the pool.
    Rashid, our guide for our walk collected us. He was brilliant. It was hard work, but worth it. I was determined I would make it. Kevin is fitter than me! The Berber family were lovely. We stopped when we were nearly there to see how rag rugs were made. When we got back Rashid and Mohammond confessed that Mohammond had said to Rashid that he should get us to a road if we got too tired and they would send a taxi (or a mule!) to collect us - or me, but Rashid was sure that I'd be OK. He was right. I think they wondered about these 2 70+ year olds. We can't praise Rashid enough. He had walked over from Imlil in the morning and was going to walk back after he left us.
    Thank you so much for putting our holiday together. We never thought it would be 3 years before we went. We are so glad we persevered. We did wonder what we had let ourselves in for as 2 oldies!
    Fiona and Kevin
