S OSSUSVLEI D ESERT L ODGE
Our last camp in Namibia was the plushest of all the Sossusvlei Desert Lodge and
it was quite beautiful, set in a wide valley with the most amazing mountains
forming the shape of the valley. The mountains were especially magical because of the
many colors they displayed depending on the quality of light, sunshine, shadow,
clouds, and even misty rains going on at any one time. And the colors changed quickly
and dramatically in such rapid succession. Every look into the valley was different.
The bungalows were built from native stone and blended perfectly with their
settings. The insides were air-conditioned, fitted with modern furniture and the
most delicious bedding. The communal dining room served gourmet meals and
there was even an observatory staffed by a real astronomer! The skies at night over
this marvelous setting were spectacular. Even the “jewel box” star cluster in Orion’s
scabbard could be seen with the naked eye! That’s means no light pollution at all or any
haze or dust in the air.
