Sossusvlei

Escape the World as you know it, with a visit to the romantic and uber-chic Sossusvlei Desert Lodge. Silence, tranquillity and remoteness envelope you from the moment you set foot in this lovely Lodge and you will gain a new appreciation of how a place that seems so lonely and inhospitable can also be so warm and inviting. Picnic with champagne on ice in the isolation of the desert or simply stargaze at the brilliant night skies, it has it all here in spades.   

Tucked into the base of the foothills surrounding the NamibRand Nature Reserve, in the heart of Namibia’s ancient Namib Desert, Sossusvlei Lodge is a contemporary oasis of ten glass and stone villas overlooking towering dunes and the endless desert terrain. Minimalist interiors open to a private veranda designed to protect you from the hot sun and at night, you can stargaze through the huge skylight above your king size bed. 

Guest areas merge seamlessly with the desert, as the stone and glass structure of the Lodge melts into wraparound verandas. Cool water gushes from an underground spring into the refreshing pool, while an extensive walk-in wine cellar provides refreshment of a different sort. Mouth-watering dinners are served by lantern light on the open dining veranda or in a surprise location in the nearby dunes.

The 445,000 acre NamibRand Nature Reserve is private property making it exclusive to the guests. There are lots of activities on offer here including guided nature walks, hiking trails, scenic nature drives, quad biking or visits to the ancient San rock art. For the stargazing enthusiast, there is a state of the art observatory which comes complete with resident astronomer who is there to reveal the mysteries of the stars.

Client Testimonials

We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
I would recommend Ampersand without any hesitation!!! The best travel agent that I’ve ever had dealings with. Everything – from the individual care and attention in helping to plan the trip, through to the efficiency of the agents on the ground in India – was handled brilliantly. An absolutely first-class service all round.
- Matthew Annable, Rajasthan, India
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
Ampersand’s preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet booking age. They were a delight to deal with!
- Mr David Wallace, North India
