Our rating: Superior | Property style: Lodge

Set in the heart of a 7000-hectare Nature Reserve, the impressively styled, impeccably maintained Desert Homestead Outpost is a wonderful spot for guests looking to enjoy the attractions of Sossusvlei from a small, intimate property. With just 12 Standard Houses and 1 Superior House it offers guests a wonderfully intimate experience. All of the en-suite rooms have floor to ceiling glass doors offering stunning panoramic views out to the sands of the Namib Desert, and their own private viewing decks for relaxing on during the day. At the main part of the lodge there is a lovely restaurant and bar area which leads out to the swimming pool, sun deck and shaded veranda where guests can relax and enjoy a cool drink. A morning trip out to Sossusvlei is a must-do when staying here, but there are plenty of other excursions to enjoy. Horse riding, nature drives and guided walks are all on offer, a number of self-guided walking routes are available to those looking to head out on their own. Ballooning trips can be booked at an additional cost and they can also over horse trails involving a few nights camping out in the Namib Desert.
