Namib | Sossusvlei

Right on the doorstep of Namib-Naukluft National Park, not far from Sossusvlei, Desert Homestead and Desert Homestead Outpost are ideally suited for exploring the Namib Sand Sea – a World Heritage Site with some of the highest dunes in the world. Both lodges are located in the Namib Tsaris Conservancy, a private nature reserve of over 140,000 hectares, adjacent to NamibRand Nature Reserve in the west. 

A laid-back atmosphere, panoramic views, extensive pool and terrace facilities, an excellent cuisine and a host of activities are distinguishing features of the lodge. The architecture is a contemporary interpretation of a stud farm’s manor house. Sophisticated furnishings and fittings in the main building as well as the guest cottages echo the theme. The main building houses the restaurant, lobby and lounge. 

Ecological sustainability is our standard for the Ondili Lodges. All of them run entirely on solar energy, including solar water heaters. Process water from the laundry is reused.
