Namibia is already an otherworldly experience, but The Nest @ Sossus enhances its magic. This unique retreat in the Namib Tsaris Conservancy was conceived by South African designer Porky Hefer.

Property Details

The handiwork of social weaver birds inspires the unique nest-like shape of the exclusive-use villas at The Nest @ Sossus. En suite bedrooms are covered in reeds collected from the Zambezi River, while the interiors are cocoons of comfort and style. A butler and gourmet chef are on hand to ensure all your needs are met.

If these luxury surroundings aren’t already reason enough to head here, consider the sightings of spotted hyenas, leopards, and cheetah at the on-site watering hole. The Namib Tsaris Conservancy has some of the largest concentrations of wildlife in the area, including oryx, springbok, Hartmann’s mountain zebras, giraffes, and bat-eared fox. The Namib Desert’s natural pools and falls make it a magnet for animals roaming the dry desert looking for sustenance. A naturalist guide will point out the flora and fauna, giving you a better understanding of Mother Nature’s ways. During the greener season, birds flutter and flit about in the area around The Nest @ Sossus.

When you are looking down at this exquisite landscape from high above in a hot air balloon, you will feel just like a bird. A short drive away you’ll find the stark, but nevertheless awe-inspiring, ochre-tinted Sossusvlei dunes. On clear evenings, grab a blanket and gather around the fire, gazing up at the myriad of twinkling stars covering the dark sky. When you stay at The Nest @ Sossus, you might be leaving footprints in the sand, but your carbon footprint will be minimal. The property is completely solar powered.

Best of all, families need not worry. Children are more than welcome to tag along on this once-in-a-lifetime journey to one of the world’s most remote outposts experienced within the luxury of The Nest @ Sossus. There’s even a playground tucked discreetly within the trees, and a swimming pool to make yours a comfortable wild escape.
