Sorris Sorris Lodge
Gazing across the stark desert landscape, Sorris Sorris Lodge faces the statuesque Brandberg massif in Namibia’s striking Damaraland. A luxury lodge in a unique location where desert-adapted elephants can be found among other resilient species.
Sorris Sorris Lodge Highlights
Sorris Sorris Lodge is a beautiful creation built specifically to suit its desert location. It has rammed-earth walls, which are not only eco-friendly, but natural temperature regulators. There is plenty of glass to bring the light and wild surroundings right inside, and the extensive use of light wood finishes the interiors and lays out the viewing decks and wooden walkways that extend between each of the nine individual suites. Granite boulder hills are dotted across the surroundings and the Brandberg mountain stands out grandly on the horizon. There is a swimming pool for summer refreshment, a dining area, lounge, and bar all housed in the main lodge, while each individual suite is entirely private.
- Damaraland is a scenically astonishing part of northwestern Namibia, full of ancient rock engravings and desert-adapted animals.
- Family-Friendly Sorris Sorris Lodge is an oasis in a very dry and harsh environment, and has achieved luxury without seeming out of place, rather embracing the stark surroundings in its construction.
- Minimalistic decor and design offer clean lines, and smooth textures that counteract the rugged, rocky landscape making it seems all the more overwhelming.
- A trip to Sorris Sorris offers the opportunity to see some of the oldest geological formations in the world, adding a grounding and restorative element to a Namibian safari itinerary.
Sorris Sorris Lodge Game Viewing and Activities
Northwestern Namibia’s Damaraland/Kaokoveld area is celebrated as one of the most unique on earth. It is not the place for up-close Big Five encounters as its habitat does not support those species, but some of the most magnificent landscapes, geology, and anthropologic treasures are waiting to be discovered. Sorris Sorris Lodge looks onto the Ugab River which only flows after rare, heavy rain, but it supports special desert-adapted giraffe, kudu, springbok, and even elephant. Special guided elephant-tracking activities offer guests the chance to walk in the footsteps of these giants as they amble through the harsh desert. Ancient Bushmen etchings are found in the granite boulders of the Brandberg just waiting to be explored on foot; while driven safari activities allow guests to bear witness to the magnificently vast desert surroundings. Hot-air ballooning is available too and is a must!
