With designs that echo those of the safari camps of the 1920s, guests arriving at Sonop Lodge are transported back to the age of the great explorers. The richly layered décor of this luxurious tented camp is juxtaposed by the stark landscapes of the Namib Desert, giving this lodge a truly opulent atmosphere.

Constructed atop timber platforms perched on a boulder-strewn hill, the lodge offers stunning panoramic views of the desert, allowing guests to enjoy its genuine beauty from every angle. An extensive list of activities, including game drives, hikes and horseback safaris, provide further opportunity to take in everything the desert has to offer.

One Bedroom Tent

Each of the one-bedroom tents feature one main bedroom and an en suite bathroom with a luxurious copper bathtub and rain shower. Canvas openings roll up to reveal seemingly endless desert landscapes that can be admired from the king-sized, four-poster bed. The telescope can be used to discover the distant mountains from the comfort of one of the living area’s armchairs. Every tent at Sonop is equipped with free Wi-Fi, a Nespresso machine, kettle, safe, air conditioning system, Bluetooth speaker and sound system.

Two Bedroom Tent

The two-bedroom tents are best suited for families of up to four. The wide, double en suite bedrooms look out over the desert and are separated by a shared living room.


The camp includes a spa and wellness centre with two double treatment rooms, an outdoor heated infinity pool, gym and relaxation area - all with stunning desert views. The dining room is complemented by a cocktail and cigar lounge and a pool bar.


Meals at Sonop are just as decadent as the setting. Breakfast and lunch are a la carte, while dinner is a gastronomic delight comprising several courses, complete with silver service, served around a communal dining table.

An all-day snack and drink menu is offered at the Pool Bar, where guests can sip on chilled drinks while taking in desert views from the infinity pool. In the evenings, cocktails and exclusive spirits are served in the Cigar & Cocktail Lounge, harking back to the days of the early explorers.
