Sossusvlei - Namibia

Email Reservationsand enquiries:

Desert Homestead has been skillfully designed to incorporate all the features that guests loved about the original lodge, whilst enjoying the benefit of a pristine location only 31.5km from Sesriem.

The twenty thatched chalets ensure our guests a more comfortable stay, and needless to say – the little touches that characterize Homestead hospitality are still evident everywhere.

Meal's can be savoured in our romantic indoor dining room complete with candles and fireplace, or alternately on our traditional wide farm verandah, with lanterns and stars adding to the ambience.

Inside they provide luxury, with large single or double beds and en-suite bathroom with shower and toilet.

All our guest amenities (soaps, shampoo, body lotion etc.) are environmentally friendly.
