Kwessi Dune Lodge
By day, this isolated camp, located about 45 minutes from the Sossusvlei main gate, sits tucked into sand dunes that erupt from the floor of the world’s largest desert. By night, it’s a haven of solitude under an infinite star-filled sky with only the Naukluft mountains to break the horizon. At all times, these breathtaking Namib Desert views reinforce the remoteness of the camp—an experience on private land that is accessible only by 4x4, with access to nearby Sossusvlei, the country's largest conservation area. Take in Namibia’s vast sand sea from the comfort of our intimate camp that is perfectly equipped for dune excursions, nature walks, quad bike exploration and more. Each of the 10 luxurious wood-framed tents is fronted by wide glass windows through which you can absorb the broad vistas while tucked under your bed’s plush duvet. A wide thatch roof to protects you from the desert heat and provides a shaded front porch with lounge chairs. During the day, your tent’s air conditioner and freestanding fans keep things cool and electricity keeps your batteries charged. Each en suite bathroom includes a shower. In addition each tent has an outdoor shower and a skybed that's enclosed for privacy, should you opt to sleep under the stars. Gather for meals and community in the large dining tent and lounge, where the tone is decidedly stylish. This is where you’ll relax over gourmet dinners, full English breakfasts and a well-stocked bar in between. Share the day's adventures while you indulge in a refreshing dip at the main lodge pool or stargaze around the camp’s crackling fire pit at night.
