Hoodia Desert Camp

Accommodation in Sossusvlei

Hoodia Desert Lodge, on the banks of the life-giving Tsauchab River, is just a 20-minute drive from the Sesriem Gate – entrance to the world-famous red sand dunes of Sossusvlei.

Hoodia, a group of iconic desert plants of the succulent family, was an important medicinal plant for the San people who once roamed here, and it is a fitting name for a luxurious camp that still manages to embrace an earthy, rustic style that reflects its environment and the history of the area. The camp is surrounded by majestic mountains that change in a magical kaleidoscope of colour and texture depending on the time of day.

There are 12 spacious thatched and partly tented bungalows with double or twin beds, mosquito nets and en-suite bathrooms with open-air showers and generous bathtubs. The chalets are all air-conditioned and have tea- and coffee-making facilities, fridges and shaded decks with views across the desert. The main building has a restaurant and lounge area with a fireplace, stylish bar, shaded outside lounge deck and shaded swimming pool area.

The lodge offers an abundance of activities. Guided sunrise trips to Sossusvlei, nature walks and hiking in the intriguing Sesriem Canyon. Day trips to the beautiful Naukluft Mountains where many species of antelope and game such as black-backed jackal, aardwolf and caracal are attracted to the rock pools and springs and plentiful natural foods. With the wide range of different habitats that the Naulkluft Mountains provide, birds are plentiful, too. The Naukluft is a paradise for the nature lover. For a different perspective of the striking surroundings, hot-air ballooning, scenic flights and horseback riding through the desert also can be arranged.

With its close proximity to the quintessential desert destination of Sossusvlei, and its focus on warm, generous and personalized service, Hoodia Desert Lodge should be included on any itinerary based in this part of Namibia.

• Private sundowners set up in scenic spots
• Daily game drives

• Coffee/tea station and fridge in each bungalow
