Situated just 60km north of Sesriem, the gateway to Sossusvlei, the Namib Desert Lodge is an ideal base from which to explore the attractions in the area. This unique game lodge nestles at the foot of the ‘fossilised’ dunes of the protomorphic Namib. Overlooking the lodge are 20 million years old and contain fossils of the ancestors of the modern day Ostrich. They are evidence that an earlier Namib existed. As the climate changed, gradually getting wetter, the additional moisture caused the sand to solidify into sandstone. Then some 5 million years ago, the climate reverted to the desert conditions found in the Namib today, allowing the formation of a new sand sea. If you want to experience the beauty of the Namib Desert in Namibia, the Namib Desert Lodge, is a good accommodation option.
