NamibRand Nature Reserve

SOSSUSVLEI DESERT LODGE: Cradled against the ancient mountains, &Beyond Sossusvlei Desert Lodge is renowned for its luxurious accommodation overlooking the starkly beautiful Namib Desert. Designed to capture the splendour and solitude of the desert, just ten stone and glass suites spread out along the curve of the escarpment, allowing absolute privacy. Each air conditioned suite is furnished to complement the majestic hues of the desert and features a private veranda, split-level bedroom and living room with fireplace, ensuite glass-encased bathroom and outdoor shower. The suites are equipped with a star-viewing skylight, discrete music system and custom-stocked personal bar. The guest area, where walls have become windows that fold away completely, boasts unimpeded desert vistas. The split-level lodge boasts a fire-lit bar, comfortable sitting room, wraparound veranda and Safari Shop. A fine selection of wines from an impressive walking wine cellar complements the delicious meals. Guests can escape the desert heat with a revitalising midday dip in the pool, fed by water from an underground spring. At sunset, animals are drawn to a nearby waterhole, enhancing desert sundowner drinks. A state-of-the-art observatory and resident astronomer provide insight into the magnificent constellations of Africa’s first International Dark Sky Reserve.

“Best Lodge in Namibia”

We stayed at this andbeyond lodge for three nights. It was a great experience. The bungalow is very beautiful furnished and you also have you own terrace to relax. It is VERY quiet and you can watch zebras and other wildlife from your terrace (do not forget to bring binoculars). Food and service was even for andbeyond extraordinary. We would definetely come back!

“and beyond says it all!”

This was like arriving in paradise after the interesting drive across the NamibRand landscapes which are mars like but continually changing. A beautifully designed lodge with every comfort on offer and the most staggering views. This is an essential visit for anyone visiting this country – the service was exceptional and they continually surprised us with all sorts of extra touches. Probably the best place I have ever stayed in.
