Sep 26, 2019

If you ever want to take in the majesty of the night sky at its best, you’re going to have to head out to one of the world’s dark sky reserves — locales protected from the effects of light pollution. Thankfully, that’s about to get a bit easier courtesy of the &Beyond Sossusvlei Desert Lodge.

Located in the heart of Africa’s lone dark sky reserve in Namibia, this resort has actually been closed for some time. But that’s because they’ve been rebuilding for a grand reopening this October. The new amenities include ten air-conditioned suites with conveniences like WiFi, fireplaces, outdoor showers, and skylights — so you can enjoy the stars above from the comfort of your bed. The greater land also features an observatory with a staff astronomer, a swimming pool, onsite laundry, and even access to massage and gym services. Of course, if you want to get out and explore between your stargazing, you can also take a 4×4 or quad trek, go hot air ballooning, and check out the local wildlife. Prices start at $617 with availability beginning on October 16th of this year.

Purchase: $617+
