Our friendly and helpful staff eagerly await to welcome you at The Elegant Desert Lodge.

Situated on the border of the World heritage site of the Namib Desert and only 38km from the gate to Sesriem and Sossusvlei, we offer accommodation in 27 elegantly appointed, air-conditioned rooms. All en-suite, the tasteful and comfortable rooms invite you to recline in the soulful yet liberating atmosphere of the world’s oldest desert.

Our beautiful and tranquil garden - a small oasis in the desert - offers various places to sit and read or just relax. Alternatively, you can enjoy the vistas of the desert plains from the veranda of your own room.

Wake to the multi-coloured light of the splendid desert sunrise. Indulge in the extensive and wholesome breakfast buffet or take the option of a picnic breakfast pack if you need an early start to undertake an adventurous trip to the world famous Sossusvlei. Alternatively simply enjoy the calm serenity at the lodge.

We suggest that you treat yourself to a laidback lunch with a bottle of fine South African wine from our extensive range, handpicked by the owners. In the afternoon you can unwind in our contemporary lounge, breath in the serenity of the lush garden or sunbathe at the sparkling pool. Take a drink at our pool bar and recline to marvel at the sun-drenched desert plains. You might also opt for the scenic drive with spectacular views overlooking the vast gravel plains contrasted with the Tsaris and Naukluft mountain massifs of the Namib Desert.

Namibia is about magnificent sunsets, while sipping on your beverage of choice, before heading off to unwind around the blazing campfire in our African firepit. You might even be fortunate enough to encounter some of the wildlife coming to quench their thirst at the waterhole a few meters away.

For dinner, we have a 4 course set menu, varying daily, that will tickle the taste buds with our Namibian delights. Dinner is served either in the restaurant, or outside under the stars in our garden, depending on the weather.


"Elegant Desert Lodge" offers accommodation in 27 tastefully furnished, stylish and modern rooms with en-suite bathrooms. All rooms have built in safes and separate unit air conditioners. Our spacious beds and quality linen, as well as all creature comforts and amenities, will ensure that your stay with us will be a comfortable one. The guest farm style rooms invite you to recline in the unique atmosphere of a Namibian guest lodge.
