NAMIB - NAUKLUFT N ATIONAL PARK , NAMIBIA

Nes­tled be­tween the Namib Desert and the Naukluft moun­tain range, the Namib-Naukluft Na­tional Park is one of the best Namibia has to of­fer. At the heart of the sandy land lies the Sos­susvlei Desert Lodge, a dreamy re­treat that hosts stargaz­ers and na­ture lovers from all over the world. The award-win­ning re­sort hosts a mul­ti­tude of adobe-style shel­ter units which sandy peach pal­ette com­ple­ments the burnt or­ange moun­tains around them dur­ing the day, as if one be­longs in a Wes An­der­son movie. At night, guests can en­joy the scenic view of the Milky Way while din­ing al fresco style. Tele­scopes are avail­able for pe­rusual post-Namib­ian feast. An equally en­thralling al­ter­na­tive would be the star­lit bush din­ners out in the desert, camp­fires and all.

The starry Namib­ian sky reigns above the Sos­susvlei Desert Lodge ev­ery night
