Sossus Under Canvas is a brand new camp located on the private 24,000 hectare Neuhof Nature Reserve nestled between the Nubib and Zaris Mountains, and just 30 minutes’ drive from the Sossusvlei gate, the gateway to the Great Namib Sand Sea.

Built in a naturally formed amphitheater of a south-facing granite outcrop its eight tents, two of which are family units, are protected from the desert climate by natural stone walls and shaded by roofs built from almost 400 recycled oil drums that give the appearance of pangolins. Furniture is also part built from recycled metals and wooden pallets. As a result, this camp will be virtually invisible from any distance and will carry the lowest environmental footprint of any camp in Namibia.

Activities will include visits to Sossusvlei with your private guide and general exploration of the private Neuhof Nature Reserve, including nature walks and drives and star gazing sleep outs. Neuhof has gravel plains, mountainous areas with dry river valleys as well as a large raised plateau which towers above the desert below, and it is now home to some of largest concentrations of wildlife in the area, including oryx, springbok, Hartmann’s mountain zebra, Burchell’s zebra, kudu, hartebeest, giraffe, steenbok, klipspringer, bat-eared Fox, and aardwolf, as well as predators such as leopard, cheetah and spotted hyena.
