Desert Homestead Outpost
Sossusvlei

Set deep within a 7,000-acre private nature reserve is the timeless and pretty Desert Homestead Outpost where a warm and authentic welcome awaits.   Adjoining the Unesco world heritage site ‘Namib Sand Sea‘, this impressive yet unassuming lodge oozes comfort and charm.   Enjoy unfathomable views from one of the 12 guest houses or from the main house with or with its intimate restaurant, lounge and pool terrace. 

Each of the guest houses are built on stilts making the most of the glorious views and are tastefully furnished throughout with spacious en-suite bathrooms.  The real icing on the cake is the sleeper deck on the roof of each house which provides a perfect venue for the ultimate sleep out under the stars. 

The ‘superior unit’ makes up the last of the 12 houses and is a real treat for those special occasions.  It benefits from its own private lounge, plunge pool and large wrap-around veranda complete with cushioned nest to kick back and savour the views.  

The adjacent plains offer a continual theatre of wildlife who roam freely across the savannah in the distance.  Guests are invited to delight in the many different activities offered by the lodge which include trips to Sossusvlei, horse riding safaris through the surrounding countryside or early morning guided nature walks.   We highly recommend trying a hot air balloon or helicopter flights which can be arranged during your stay.

The ideal is to feel at home anywhere, everywhere.

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
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
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 thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
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
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 details preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet/direct booking age. Shalmali was a delight to work with – before and during our trip.
- Mr David Wallace, North 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
