Namibia, in particular our magical Sossusvlei, has been put on the map again!
This time it’s by CNN Travel, which officially afforded Sossusvlei Lodge of Taleni Africa top stargazing status.
So forget about coming here to get some shut-eye!
Ranked among the world’s top 12 hotels for observing the Milky Way and its awe-inspiring galaxies, Sossusvlei Lodge offers a special introduction to stargazing, aided by staff members who are more than willing to share their knowledge of astronomy.
Situated right at the entrance gate to Sossusvlei and Sesriem, you won’t get closer to a more spectacular, albeit silent, nightlife than this. The establishment is managed along ecological lines, and management makes a great effort to keep the surrounding environment as close to nature as possible. So catch a falling star and savour the memory of starry nights under Namibian skies!
