In one of the most dramatic settings in Africa, exquisitely appointed rock, timber, and thatch bungalows cling to the side of a mountain with spectacular views of the desert as it stretches away to the horizon. After the bumpy 20-km (12½-mile) drive to the dunes, you'll enjoy breakfast under spreading camelthorn trees at the foot of Sossusvlei before returning to camp at midday via the Sesriem Canyon. You can then cool off in your private plunge pool as you watch the
sun set over awesome desert scenery to the calls of barking geckos.
