NAMIBRAND PRIVATE GAME RESERVE – DELUXE
Spanning 445,000 acres of pristine desert wilderness, Namibia’s NamibRand is the largest private nature reserve in Southern Africa. Located in the foothills of the reserve, &Beyond Sossusvlei Desert Lodge offers guests a unique experience that combines luxury with the haunting beauty of the Namib Desert, one of the oldest and driest deserts on earth. “The Living Desert”, as it is also known, is a world of vast space, endless horizons, dramatic desert moonscapes and jagged mountain ridges.
Designed to capture the splendour and solitude of the desert, each stone-and-glass Desert Villa is set along the curve of the escarpment with wondrous views from the floor-to-ceiling windows. This is sophistication among the sands: the 10 spacious air-conditioned villas feature indoor and outdoor showers, glass-wrapped bathrooms, star-gazing skylights and desert-viewing decks.
The split-level main lodge has wraparound verandas and features a fire-lit bar, comfortable sitting room, mezzanine library with a CD and book collection. Sossusvlei Desert Lodge is renowned for its hearty bush breakfasts and dinners that are enjoyed in a dramatic desert moonscape-style location. Fine wines complement delicious Pan-African cuisine served in the glass-fronted dining room.
The lodge also has a swimming pool with water coming from an underground spring.
At sunset, animals are drawn to a nearby waterhole, providing plenty of added excitement to a sundowner-drink. The area is home to many species including oryx, springbok, Burchell’s and Hartmann’s Zebra, kudu, ostrich and giraffe, whilst there are also predators such as leopard, spotted hyena, black-backed jackal, bat-eared foxes and African Wildcat. Bird lovers can spot over 100 species.
Led by Sossusvlei’s expert guides, guests explore the reserve and desert by quad-bikes, open 4×4 vehicles and even by hot-air balloon. Excursions to the famous Sossusvlei sand dunes, the highest in the world, and Sesriem Canyon add to an unforgettable desert-safari experience.
