Desert Camp offers a comfortable and affordable alternative to the luxurious lodges near Sossusvlei in Namibia. The camp is located a mere 5km from the entrance gate to Sossusvlei, on the 40 000ha Taleni Africa Private Reserve, characterized by a vast and tranquil desert backdrop that offers grand views in all directions.

Twenty eco-friendly, stand-alone units under canvas, each with an en suite bathroom, BBQ facility, shaded verandah and kitchenette, provide the accommodation at Desert Camp. Facilities found at the main building include a fully stocked bar, big screen TV as well as an inviting swimming pool. Adjacent to the main building, two bomas provide the ideal dinner venue.

Those fortunate enough to visit this part of Namibia are sure to find the emptiness and endless open spaces to be an experience very spiritual in nature. The night sky is dotted by billions of stars that seem closer and more imposing than at almost any other location in Southern Africa. Activities range from nature walks on the reserve to nature drives in the Sossusvlei area. For a completely unique perspective, opt for a hot air balloon safari high above the striking desert dunes.

Riaan's Review

Desert Camp is very basic, but with a splendid natural setting. Those seeking to experience the wonder of Sossusvlei on a budget will be very well served by a stay at this camp.
