One of the main highlights of Namibia are the red sand 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 hour's drive from Sossusvlei) open only between sunrise and sunset so you need to plan your visits to the dunes keeping it in mind. Hot air balloon flights depart from Sesriem at sunrise. Train tours are provided by Desert Express - luxury five star train.
