Complete privacy in luxurious modern-designed rooms close to Sossusvlei gate

Nestled in the Naukluft Mountains, and with an unspoiled and uninterrupted panoramic view of the Namib Desert, Desert Hills Lodge is a mere 28 km from Sesriem, the gateway to Sossusvlei. Inspired by the nomadic San people of the arid plains, 18 luxury chalets fuse ancient architecture with sleek modernity. Guests can absorb the surreal view of the Namib Desert from their spacious veranda or from the deck pool. After joining a rhino encounter experience or hiking up the orange dunes of nearby Sossusvlei, enjoy the sunset with handpicked wine from the cellar and delicious cuisine or unwind by the outdoor fire pit.

Stay Location


Best time to go to Namibia

Namibia is best visited between May and October when safari viewing is at its best. Between the winter months of May and July, daytime temperatures are moderate, while nights can get quite cold, so remember to pack a warm jacket. The veld fills with baby animals during the summer months of November and December. This is also an excellent time for birders as many migrant bird species have returned. The rainy season is from November to April, resulting in dramatic thundershowers and even desert flooding.


Safari Tent

Each Safari Tent comes with 2 single beds along with an en-suite bathroom with a walk-in shower, bathrobes, hairdryer and complimentary toiletries. Other amenities include blackout curtains, air-conditioning, a safe, a seating area, a coffee and tea-making station, a laptop safe, and a minibar.
