Namib | Sossusvlei

Desert Homestead Lodge, 30km south-east of Sesriem and the entrance to Namib-Naukluft-Nationalpark, is the perfect starting point for tours to Sossusvlei or an oasis for a relaxing rest after visiting the world‘s highest dunes. The lodge is located in a private nature reserve adjoining the Unesco World Heritage site “Namib Sand Sea”. Desert Homestead Lodge is famous for its horse safaris in the Namib Desert which are suitable for experienced riders as well as for beginners (under guidance of experienced riding instructors). Several riding tours lasting 1 or 2 days are offered including all meals. The nights will be spent in a tented camp under Namibia‘s beautiful starry sky.
