Camp Sossus is a semi-permanent tented camp in the Greater Sossusvlei-Namib area of Namibia's vast Neuhof Nature Reserve. Nestled between the Nubib and Zaris Mountains, this camp is just a thirty minutes' drive from the Sossusvlei Gate and the Namib Sand Sea, which recently received the designation as a World Heritage Site. The camp is only available on an exclusive basis, promising adventurous travelers a completely unique and off-the-beaten-path experience. 

Camp Sossus offers travelers a return to the wild with an authentic, back-to-the-basics safari experience that re-defines luxury. The focus here is not on creature comforts, but rather on raw, natural experiences that occur within one of Africa's most wild places. 

Sossus Under Canvas has eight Meru tents, including two family tents. The camp is comfortable but rustic, with a focus on the wilderness and expert guiding. Designed to protect the camp from the wind, the buildings have stonewalls on the eastern side, with roofs built from recycled oil drums and recycled wood and metal used on the interiors too. From the distance the camp is nearly invisible, having been designed to blend in with its environment. Inside the camp is a central lounge and dining area with a fireplace where guests can gather together at the end of the day. The camp is only available for booking on an exclusive basis and is open from April to November.

• 8 shaded large square Meru tents (4m x 4m and 3m high)
• En suite open-air bathrooms with hot bucket showers and flush toilet
 Solar lighting
• Central dining, lounge and common areas
• Exclusive use of the camp

Star Beds

Built on a deck above the bathroom at each guest tent and supplied with their own linen so there is no need to take the bed linen from inside the tents. Namibia’s night sky is famous for its stars, so why would anyone not want to spend at least one night under the stars in complete safety and privacy using these Star Beds which are unrivaled in the Namib Desert. This allows for nights under a billion stars, ensuring crisp, cozy bedding, good lighting as required, as well as what most find to be a very romantic night under the stars!

This was my first experience with Adventure Life - and I couldn't have been more pleased with the trip. The guides and local staff in both Buenos Aires and Uruguay were terrific - extremely helpful and accommodating. I really enjoyed meeting the friendly staff in Buenos Aires in person (I left my bags with them for the afternoon).
