Sossusvlei Desert Lodge has a spectacular setting, surrounded by the vast expanse of the Namib Desert.

There’s a fireplace for chilly evenings, and a glass skylight above the bed for cosy stargazing in the clear night sky.

Accommodation in Namibia
Namibia is a magical country – it captures your soul. It’s a land of endless horizons, contrasting landscapes, the oldest desert on earth and starlit skies.
Namibia’s Skeleton Coast is a striking, unforgettable coastline whose landscape and luxury camps can be explored by a private flying safari. Damaraland, on the other hand, is an ancient land crisscrossed with pre-historic waterways and deep gorges. The Diamond Coast is the stuff of legends – home to ghost towns and living fossils. The massive mineral pan of Etosha, in Namibia’s first conservation area, spread over 22 000 kilometers and attracts wildlife (including Africa’s tallest elephants), more than 300 bird species and reptile species.
Andersson’s is a tented camp in Ongava, a private reserve bordering Etosha National Park. The 20 tents (including two family tents) are rustic but comfortable, and the renovated farmstead has a lovely veranda overlooking the camp waterhole. Spend your days on game drives and guided walks in Ongava Reserve, along with drives in neighbouring Etosha. Back at camp, the sunken photographic hide is an excellent place to watch wildlife come and go at the waterhole.
Damaraland Adventurer Camp
Damaraland Adventurer Camp is tucked away in a sandstone canyon in the Huab River Valley. This basic but comfortable camp has six dome tents, each en-suite and shaded by its own canvas overhang. Namibia’s starkly beautiful Damaraland Region is home to a surprising diversity of wildlife including desert-adapted elephant, oryx, springbok and black rhino. Set out on guided game drives, go mountain biking, have breakfast in the mountains and visit the local springs.
Damaraland Camp lies amongst the rocky plains and flat-topped mountains of northwest Namibia. Despite being one of the driest regions of Africa, this conservancy supports a variety of wildlife including herds of rare, desert-adapted elephant. Still, a stay here is not just about the safari experience but also the chance to stay somewhere truly remote, watch the sunrise over the desert and enjoy breakfast on a hilltop with extraordinary views.
Desert Rhino Camp
Desert Rhino Camp is a remote tented camp in Namibia’s starkly beautiful Damaraland Region. Run in conjunction with the ‘Save The Rhino Trust’, this camp is known for rhino tracking – by vehicle or on foot – with some of the most knowledgeable guides in Namibia. Game drives offer up the chance to see lion, zebra, giraffe, hyena and gemsbok (oryx). While evenings are spent sharing stories around the campfire and delicious dinners under the stars.
Centrally situated, the Hansa Hotel serves as the perfect getaway to all tourists amenities which Swakopmund and surrounding areas have to offer, from sand-boarding some of the highest dunes in the world to big game viewing in one of our country’s world-known game parks.Surrounded by local tour operators, aviation and…
