Sossusvlei Lodge Desert Camp
Desert Camp is located in Sesriem area in
southern Namibia. The Sossusvlei region remains a sight of unparalleled
beauty, even more so after the rains. The desert plains have changed colour
from rich green to pale oceans of swaying grass; silver in the rising sun and
golden at dawn. The activities offered at the Adventure Centre; the Nature
Drives, Sunset Drives, Quad Bike Excursions, Hot Air Ballooning and the Scenic
Flights are all absolute highlights and should really be included in all
accommodation packages. Other news on the area; the road leading from Sesriem
to the 2x4 parking at Sossusvlei is in bad shape at this stage, with the first
30-35km really being tricky! The road is under construction and is closed to
traffic along most of this stretch. Several detours of varying quality have
been formed on all sides, resulting in people approaching from any side at any
speed! All persons travelling this road are advised to drive slowly and to be
alert. The next stretch after this section has been repaired and is good to
The gravel roads leading to Sossusvlei Lodge and the area are in good condition and are constantly under reconstruction. A rather strange sight is the two stretches of tarred road in the Kuiseb Canyon! If anything, it is a welcome change from all the dust while travelling along this route.
