Best Places To Stay In Sossusvlei

The scenery here is iconic and extremelly dramatic. The sand dunes tower over the horizon and paint a canvas of the African ideal. As wel as this iconic image, there is a variety of other landscapes and points of interest, even going as far as the luscious vegetation in The Naukuft Mountains to the south. 

Little Kulala

Little Kulala is Wilderness Safaris flagship lodge in Sossusvlei. Located only 45 minutes drive from the Sossusvlei Dunes themselves, Little Kulala has the best location of all the dune camps and is unquestionably the most luxurious of all the camps in the region. The eleven rooms all look out towards the red dunes off Sossusvlei and come complete with air con, wall to wall windows, private plunge pools and rooftop star gazing beds. Quite simply, the level accommodation here is in a league of its own.

Kulala Desert Lodge

A good value camp in Sossusvlei - Situated on over 21, 000 hectares of private property and bordering the Namib Naukluft Park, Kulala Desert Lodge lies in the heart of the Namib and offers magnificent views of the famous red dunes of Sossusvlei as well as magnificent mountainous scenery and vast open plains.

Sossusvlei Desert Lodge

&Beyond Sossusvlei Desert Lodge is a fantastic property that carries the high standards we have come to expect from any &Beyond property.  Located a couple of hours drive from the famous Sossusvlei dunes, Sossusvlei Desert Lodge is located outside of the busier Sossusvlei area and is a great choice for people looking for a quieter experience. The lodges main selling point however is that it is home to the countries best Observatory – nights here are absolutely stunning. A recent refurbishment in 2011 has meant this lodge is looking better than ever.


The Wolwedans Collection is a group of lodges located in a private reserve 3 hours drive South of the Sossusvlei dunes. Home to the original Wolwedans Dune Lodge and Wolwedans Dune Camp, the collection recently built the stunning Boulders Camp and subsequently offers a range of accommodations to suit all budgets. Famous for its approach to sustainable tourism, Wolwedans is one of Namibia’s most impressive private reserves and a company whose ethos others should learn from. Seeing as it is not possible to visit the Sossusvlei Dunes from Wolwedans we often recommend combining Wolwedans with a couple of nights in Sossusvlei itself before retreating to the privacy the collection offers.
