Lodge and self-catering in the Sossusvlei region

Namseb is a private and owner-run lodge, managed by Guido und Aileen von Wietersheim. The lodge is situated on a little game reserve in the eastern part of the Sossusvlei region and is the perfect base to explore the area of Southern Namibia. The Fish River Canyon, the Sossusvlei and the Kalahari are just a drive away.

Namseb Lodge is situated west of Maltahöhe at the top of the Namseb Plateau and nestled among the golden grass of the African savannah, offering incredible views. Visitors find a welcome retreat from the hustle and bustle of the city. Namseb is perfect for nature lovers looking for a rural and undisturbed getaway. Guest can choose between bed and breakfast and self-catering accommodation.


The 16 en-suite guest rooms and the guest cottages are built completely of rock while the neutral colors and earth tones in the design add to the rustic charm of the lodge.

Guests booked on BB basis are served a delicious breakfast buffet and the variety of dishes will cater to every palate. A light lunch and a three-course dinner are provided at an additional cost for Bed & Breakfast bookings. Traditional braais and potjies are available on request and can be enjoyed on the grassy plains while appreciating the beautiful African sunset.

The self-catering chalets have a little kitchenette and are fully equipped with cutlery, crockery, kettle, fridge etc. They can accommodate 2-56 persons and are ideal for families.


Guests can spend lazy afternoons relaxing beside the swimming pool while enjoying nature. Sundowner nature drives in our private game reserve provide exclusive game-viewing opportunities, while hiking trails are ideal for a chance encounter with a kudu or a giraffe.

The Sundowner Nature Drive is a highlight at Namseb Lodge. About 1,5h before sunset we drive into the savannah with an off-road vehicle. On the way to our sundowner place at the farm your host and farm owners Aileen or Guido von Wietersheim will talk about fauna and flora at Namseb. Of course it is not possible to say which kind of game you will see. Each tour is different and brings new experiences and surprises. With a glass of gin-tonic or any other drink in your hand you will experience an unforgettable sundowner with a perfect view.
