Ultimate Safaris launches a brand-new camp in the heart of the Namibian Desert
The eco-chic ethos of Camp Sossus is the epitome of Ultimate Safaris’ aim to redefine immersive exploration and luxury.
Camp Sossus, a brand-new camp by Ultimate Safaris in the heart of the Namibian desert, brings ultimate freedom back into the supreme safari experience. Life outdoors is possible all-year-round in the stunning camp set in a nature conservancy, nestled between two mountain ranges and just 30 from the gateway to Sossusvlei and the Great Namib Sand Sea World Heritage site, one of the most picturesque places in the region.
With the qualities of privacy, intimacy, unforgettable experiences plus total flexibility at its core, the idea of perfect comfort has not been neglected. The camp offers just six tented guest rooms and provides a striking alternative to any traditional lodge or camp in the Sossusvlei area while offering unparalleled opportunities for guests to explore the majestic Namibian Desert environment.
The large west-facing windows and south-facing doors in the tented guest rooms allow natural cooling by the prevailing afternoon south-westerly wind, and all the tents have a basic infrastructure that offers necessary comforts. Guests feel perfectly at one with their surroundings while they enjoy semi-open-air en suite bathrooms with flush toilets and hot bucket showers with locally sourced amenities, spacious extra-length three-quarter twin beds, solar lighting, 220V electrical charging station, pedestal fan, shaded patio, a shaded day-bed, and a magnificent star bed. Looking up at a billion stars as you fall asleep in the comfort of a feather bed is an experience to be treasured, and just one of the many forms of ultimate personal freedom to be experienced at Camp Sossus.
