Namibia continues its meteoric rise as a tourist destination, drawing safari-goers for its surreal landscapes and geographic diversity. The most popular place in this southern African nation is Sossusvlei, home to enormous red sand dunes—the world’s oldest—in the spectacular Namibia Desert. These dunes soar as high as 325 meters (more than 1060 feet), and make for a scenic spot for adrenaline-pumping activities like quad biking, paragliding and hot-air ballooning.

Sossusvlei is home to andBeyond’s only lodge in Namibia, a luxurious retreat of 10 air-conditioned suites with in-room fireplaces, Wi-Fi, outdoor showers and star-viewing skylights positioned above the beds. In fact, the lodge’s isolated setting makes an ideal place for contemplating the constellations; there’s even an Observatory—complete with a Meade LX200R 12-inch telescope—where a professional resident astronomer will point out the mysteries of the African night sky. What's more? andBeyond Sossusvlei Desert Lodge is one of our top picks for adventure travelers.

New in 2019: andBeyond Sossusvlei Desert Lodge will close on June 10 for a top-to-bottom renovation. The resort will reopen on October 15 to show off a complete makeover; the rooms will have a contemporary look with floor-to-ceiling glass windows for appreciating the surrounding desert landscape. Lodge amenities include a swimming pool, Safari Shop, in-room massage, and complimentary laundry service. andBeyond Sossusvlei Desert Lodge caters to both couples and families; the WILDChild program offers fun, interactive activities for children to learn about Bushman culture, study the stars and look for wildlife. Honeymooning in Namibia? andBeyond is promoting a special offer of 50 percent savings on one partner’s accommodations.
