Sossusvlei Area

One of the main highlights of Namibia are the dunes at Sossusvlei. The National Park gates at Sesriem (which is 60km / approximately one hour's drive from Sossusvlei) are only open between sunrise and sunset so plan a visit to the dunes accordingly.

To make things easier we have categorised lodges around the area as follows:

Sesriem / Sossusvlei

Drive times from these lodges to Sesriem are between a few minutes to three quarters of an hour (common sense disclaimer: if you drive slowly, it will take you longer).


Solitaire & Surrounds
Solitaire is a quaint settlement about 80km north of Sesriem.


Namib Rand Reserve
South of Sossusvlei is one of the world's largest privately owned nature reserves, but as we all know size is not everything and fortunately Namib Rand is also one of the most beautiful places you are ever likely to visit.


Naukluft, Bullsport and Tsaris Mountains
These places are fairly distant from Sesriem (often over an hour's drive) - but many have something special to offer in their own right and are worth considering if you do not mind a bit of extra driving on the day you visit the dunes.
