A Day at Sossusvlei Desert Lodge
At &Beyond Sossusvlei Desert Lodge, the days are designed to thrill you with desert experiences and the nights to spoil you with the drama and beauty of the African sky.
Morning Nature Drive
Explore the NamibRand Nature Reserve on a scenic nature drive, which concentrates on unique desert-adapted plants and wildlife, as well as the starkly beautiful desert landscapes.
Return to the lodge for a delicious breakfast, with platters of fruit and cheese followed by a selection of hot breakfast dishes. Choose from eggs, oats, waffles or a number of other options.
If you wish, you can walk off your breakfast on a short walk near the lodge. It is safe for you to walk alone, but you can ask your guide to accompany you on a longer walk to a cave with San Bushman paintings, sharing his invaluable insight into the smaller animals and vegetation of the area en route. Return to the lodge in time for lunch, served on the wraparound verandas.
Cool off with a refreshing dip in the pool or indulge in a siesta before afternoon tea.
Quad bike trail
If you're feeling adventurous enough, venture out on a quad bike trail, led by an experienced guide. Well established trails lead over the dunes and rocky outcrops.
A mouthwatering dinner awaits back at the lodge or in a dramatic desert location. After dinner, a resident astronomer unlocks the secrets of the southern skies at the lodge's observatory. End your night looking up into African stars through the skylight positioned above your king sized bed.
