One of the main highlights of Namibia is the dunes at Sossusvlei, we offer a selection of accommodation in this area. As a general rule the closer to Sossusvlei the more expensive the accommodation, so it is important to strike a balance between cost and distance to the dunes when choosing a lodge. Apart from the campsite at Sesriem and Sossus Dune Lodge all of these establishments are outside of the Namib-Naukluft Park. The park gates at Sesriem (which is 60 km / approximately one hours drive from Sossusvlei) are only open between sunrise and sunset so you need to plan your visits to the dunes accordingly.
