To experience the Namib Desert in all its magnificent beauty and peaceful tranquillity, while appreciating the views over the towering red dunes and rugged mountains in the distance, the Dead Valley Lodge provides luxurious accommodation in tented chalets right in the desert.

Sossusvlei and the surrounding dunes are some of the main attractions visitors to Namibia want to see.

Most of the accommodation facilities are situated outside the Namib-Naukluft National Park, which means those wanting to do an early morning drive to watch the sunrise from some of the biggest dunes in the world, need to wait until the entrance gate to the Park to open.

Dead Valley Lodge is situated inside the park, which gives guests staying at the lodge the advantage of enjoying the panoramic vistas of the Namib Desert earlier than everyone else can.

Guests can also stay at Sossusvlei and Dead Vlei until later in the afternoons to appreciate the sunset over the dunes, while others need to travel back to exit the Park in time.
