Optional Activities

The following activities are available at this lodge:

Located in the Namib-Naukluft National Park, Sossusvlei is Namibia’s most popular tourist attraction and boasts some of the highest sand dunes in the world reaching almost 400 metres. Visit this spectacular site on a guided tour. A climb up the dunes is rewarded by spectacular views and is highly recommended. You will also visit Deadvlei, a clay pan characterised by dark, dead camel thorn trees which stand in stark contrast against the white pan floor. You may also see some of the resident wildlife such as black-backed jackal, springbok and ostrich as well as some of the many smaller creatures living in the desert such as the fascinating Tok Tokkie beetle, shovel-snouted lizard or Grant’s golden mole.
