The Namib, one of the oldest deserts in the world, is also one of the loveliest and most photogenic. In this unspoilt wilderness, 60 kilometres from awesome Sossusvlei, is Movenpick Sossusvlei Lodge. Situated at the entrance to the Namib-Naukluft Park, the lodge blends seamlessly with surrounding landscape.
Showing great imagination and sensitivity to the environment, the architects have incorporated many innovative features. Each of the 45 bedrooms has a 180 degree view of the ridges of the Naukluft and Tsaris Mountains and across the vast plains dotted with camel-thorn.
Here you may experience luxury accommodation with breathtaking views. The use of fossil fuels is strictly limited. Instead of air conditioning , the double canvas ceilings have a ventilation gap, as used by desert nomads of old, to ensure coolness. Lighting is solar powered, while only showers are used, serving as a constant reminder of Namibia's most precious commodity .... water!
Furnishings at the lodge are hand-crafted, the cuisine is German/Namibian and the ambience is tranquil and in tune with the natural world. In the early dawn, and when the sun sets late in the afternoon, the ever-moving sea of sand comes to life. Balloon safaris and 4x4 trails provide a fascinating perspective of nature at its most creative. This is the perfect desert retreat.
