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.

  • Trip was great and all the arrangements were excellent so thank you for all the help!

    Drivers and transfers were all good - on time and very good service on each trip.

    Accommodation was lovely - Douar Samra was amazing (weather could have been better but lovely regardless). Riad in Marrakesh was also great!

    All in all a great trip and we loved the variety of the mountains, Marrakesh and the coast.

    Thanks you once again!

  • I was also just about to email you to thank you and the team for arranging yet again, another wonderful experience.

    Mount Kenya was spectacular and wild - I think I prefer it to Kili in many ways. The entire support team was professional, friendly and all round fantastic in making sure that we were safe, well fed and well looked after. In particular, we would commend Peter the guide as well as Paul one of the porters who doubled-up as his deputy on summit day. Our route was often shrouded in mist and rain that rapidly gathered in the valleys and moorlands, and we were very impressed at how Peter managed to navigate us safely through all of that notwithstanding. In addition, we loved learning about the history of Mount Kenya from him in the evenings. And ofcourse, I was blown away by the lovely birthday surprise at the end complete with balloons and a delicious cake that had journeyed with us from day 1. One thing we might recommend because of the sudden change in weather (it would sometimes get extremely cold and wet) is for the equipment list to be a little bit more detailed in terms of its recommendations e.g. layers to be moisture-wicking, walking boots be waterproof, doubling up on socks to avoid blisters etc.

    El Karama is a beautiful conservancy and the lodge a true labour of love. Great hospitality in a relaxed environment. Delicious, fresh food. We enjoyed the drives, even if we didn't see much wildlife as the heavens opened on us for the last two outings. However, since it was very much geared towards families, I am not sure if I would stay again without kids. That said, I think it was perfect for a 3d/2n stay post mountain, and a much better choice than flying to the masai mara given the limited time we had.

    Our transits were smooth. Samuel the driver was always on time, drove safely and kept the vehicle clean.

    So it was a brilliant experience and one which I certainly will cherish for some time to come. It was great to work with you for a third time, and I certainly hope it won't be the last

  • Thank you, we had an absolute wonderful time, and everything was well-planned and as described. Carla was crying on the day of our departure from Ants Nest, she didn’t want to go home and for it all to end, and when I asked how much longer she would want to stay, she responded “four weeks”
