SOSSUSVLEI WILDERNESS CAMP


Sossusvlei Wilderness Camp is situated on the 37 000ha private Kulala Wilderness Reserve just outside the Namib Naukluft Park. The camp is built close to the top of a mountain providing spectacular vistas of the desert valley floor and surrounding Naukluft Mountains. There are nine superbly appointed units, each with a plunge pool on a raised wooden deck. The bedrooms and en-suite bathrooms all have panoramic views of the surrounding plains and dunes in the distance. The main area is under thatch with an outdoor deck where guests enjoy sundowners or dinner under the stars, while breakfasts are sometimes served under camel thorn trees amongst the dunes. The clear African night skies are viewed through a powerful telescope from the stargazing platform.

The camp is named after the nearby world-famous Sossusvlei, an enormous clay pan, flanked by the famous red sand dunes that stand out starkly against the blue sky. These dunes - the most well-known being Big Daddy or Dune 45 - have developed over millions of years, the wind continuously remodelling the contours of this red sand sea. The 'vlei' itself only fills after rare heavy rainfall when, in a complete turn-around, it becomes a spectacular turquoise lake.

The camp offers easy access to Sossusvlei as well as privacy and exclusivity, so early morning excursions to the dunes and the vlei are most popular. Awe-inspiring ballooning safaris are at extra cost. Experienced guides bring the desert to life during nature drives and walks, with night drives producing sightings of nocturnal species such as aardwolf, Cape fox, black-backed jackal and bat-eared fox.

This camp, built close to the top of a mountain with spectacular vistas of the desert, comprises nine superbly appointed chalets on raised wooden decks.  The bedrooms and en-suite bathrooms have panoramic views of the surrounding plains and dunes in the distance.  The thatched main area has an outdoor deck where guests enjoy sundowners or dinner under the stars, while breakfasts are somethimes served under camel thorn acacias amongst the dunes.  The clear African night skies are viewed through a powerful telescope from the stargazing platform.

Rose gold, for example, is a very "now" choice for case rolex replica uk metal. Seeing all the incredible rose gold models rolling out from everyone from Audemars Piguet to Omega, I started wondering replica watches sale what a nice dress watch of that hue would look like on my wrist. As such, the rose gold Orient Symphony FER27002B0 rolex replica looked both refined and bold when I wore it, garnering curiosity and compliments from fellow watch nerds rocking Sinns and Speedmasters. The pink index markers against the slightly rolex replica iridescent deep black dial added both legibility and an elegant look. The black accents made the Orient Symphony something I could wear rolex replica with a tux or more formal suit; that the date window is beveled in rose gold is a nice detail-oriented, luxe touch. If anything, this Orient Symphony rolex replica sale nicely recalls, say, a vintage Rolex Bombe as a design reference; however, the nicely finished 41mm case, which wears even a little bigger with the minimal dial, simple bezel, and rolex replica sale polished surfaces, felt suitable for modern tastes.
