SOSUS VLEI

Sosusvlei Overview

Sossusvlei & Deadvlei visit!

No trip to Namibia is complete without setting foot in the Namib desert. This sea of sand stretches for more than 2000km along the Atlantic coast of Angola, Namibia and South Africa. Deadvlei in the Sossusvlei area is without a doubt the most iconic and accessible place to visit in this starkly beautiful region.

The name “Sossusvlei” roughly translates into “dead-end marsh". A vlei is a marsh in Afrikaans. This is the place where sand dunes come together and prevent the Tsauchab River to flow any further, in the dry Namib Desert the River however seldom flows this far resulting in a dry pan most years.

Sossusvlei is a huge area in the park that includes iconic locations such as Dune 45, Deadvlei, Big Daddy, and Sesriem Canyon; it is one of Namibia's most popular visitor attractions. Big Daddy is the park's tallest dune.

The park's vast red sand dunes have always been on my bucket list of places to see in the globe, and the spectacular scenery did not disappoint! Sossusvlei is a vast white salt and clay pan surrounded by massive red sand dunes that is found in Namibia.

An absolute dream to visit with a camera, the incredible scenery makes anyone look like a professional photographer!

 SOSUS DUNE LODGE

Lodge Overview

Sossus Dune Lodge is part of the Namibia Wildlife Resorts' eco-friendly collection initiative and is situated in the environmentally sensitive Namib Naukluft Reserve. Given that the Namib Desert is a dry and harsh environment, the lodge places significant emphasis on managing water and waste efficiently. Additionally, its location within the park offers a notable advantage to visitors, as park entry is only allowed before sunrise and after sunset. Sossus Dune Lodge is conveniently positioned 60 km from the renowned Deadvlei and Sossusvlei.

This prime park location allows guests to enter the park before sunrise, leave, and return just after sunset, facilitating breathtaking views of sunrises and sunsets over the distinctive red-colored Namib desert dunes. The dunes owe their reddish hue to the high iron and mineral content in the sand and the unique composition of the Namib. Over time, the iron and minerals oxidize, resulting in the striking red color of the dunes. Staying at Sossus Dune Lodge offers the advantage of experiencing the first and most beautiful light on the dunes.

Moreover, the lodge has been thoughtfully constructed and meticulously designed to seamlessly blend with the natural beauty of the Namib desert's surroundings

ACTIVITIES
Due to its proximity to Sosusvlei, guests will benefit from being able to reach Sosusvlei before sunrise, and to stay until after sunset, and on their return after an exhilarating day, to relax in tranquillity and splendour of the Namib Desert, under the spectacular African sky. Offering professional guided tours to fully unleash the beauty and biological diversity of the desert environment to visitors.
