The Sossusvlei Desert Lodge is situated within the &BEYOND Sossusvlei Private Desert Reserve, a vast 12,715 hectare (31,419 acres) expanse deep in the Namib, the world’s oldest living desert. Set amidst an ocean of dunes, rocky outcrops and gravel plains, the utter tranquility and extraordinary clarity of light make this area one of Africa’s most compelling landscapes.
In 2019, the property underwent a complete renovation, the result of which was a magnificent luxurious lodge in the desert. Prior to this, the lodge had used a diesel generator as its energy source. However, diesel in this area is both expensive and logistically challenging to transport. Therefore, an off-grid solar system was a welcome solution for this property that sought sophisticated sustainability.
