Kwessi Dunes Lodge

A luxury gateway to Sossusvlei and Deadvlei

Kwessi Dunes Lodge

Kwessi Dunes Lodge is a brand-new safari camp located in the heart of the vast NamibRand Nature Reserve; the perfect spot from which to explore Sossusvlei’s rolling dunes nearby.

The camp has been designed to relish the vastness of the landscapes that surround it. The never-ending red desert plains stretch out all around and the huge night sky – preserved as Africa’s first designated Dark Sky Reserve – will truly take your breath away. 

In camp you’ll find 12 sympathetically designed chalets, all with the luxury of air-conditioning and boasting their own ‘star gazer’ room, the perfect spot to wile away a few evening hours. Two family suites include two single beds perfect for little ones who need to be kept a little closer. 

The main lodge has panoramic views of an undulating sandy landscape continuing for miles until it meets the distant mountains. And guests can soak it all in with a morning cup of coffee by the campfire or an alfresco dinner on the open veranda. Kids and adults alike will relish the relief of a cool dip in the pool during the heat of the day. 

Activities can be as active or as relaxed as you desire, with game drives through the iconic red dunes of Sossusvlei on offer as well as nature walks tracking the desert-adapted wildlife. For families wanting a bit of excitement, opt for a horse back safari, quad biking tour or even a hot air balloon to really get a sense of the vastness of the landscape.
