A charming little camp with truly stunning views
Tucked away beneath jagged mountains, this is the perfect spot from which to explore Sossusvlei
A small and wonderfully stylish camp which sits at the foot of towering rocky mountains, The Elegant Desert Eco Camp is a beautiful retreat for visitors looking to experience Sossusvlei from the elegance of a tented camp.
There are just 10 bedrooms here, so it is small for the region, with each of the rooms facing out across the seemingly endless desert plains. Comfortably furnished with large decks at the front, the rooms are amongst the most comfortable in the area and the tented design, raised off the desert floor, allows them to remain cool, even in the height of summer. Well-equipped en-suite bathrooms are found at the rear of each room and they are spread well apart from one another, allowing for a wonderful feeling of privacy. The main area of the lodge is a lovely space, home to an open plain dining area, lounge and bar where guests congregate for meals and to share tales of their day exploring the desert. A sparkling swimming pool is hidden away amongst the rocks and is surrounded by a large deck where guests can relax and enjoy the views out across the Namib Desert – ideal for an afternoon relaxing and also a very popular spot for enjoying traditional sundowner drinks.
The gate to access the dunes at Sossusvlei is 45kms drive away with guests able to either self-drive to see the dunes or join one of the guided trips from the lodge, which will also include a stop at the Sesriem Canyon. Visitors who enjoy walking will be especially attracted to this lodge as there are a number of walking trails which lead through the desert and the surrounding mountains.
