The Lodge

Sonop is a luxurious tented camp nestled at the Southern extremity of the Namib desert, in the Karas region (Namibia), whose opening is planned for Summer 2019.

Designed as a refined British colonial experience from the 1920’s, this out-of-the-ordinary lodge offers a perfect retreat in a stunning panoramic desert landscape. Constructed on top of boulders, the ten spacious tents aim to offer a unique journey through time. Richly furnished with antiques made of fine materials, colourful carpets and precious wood, they are an invitation to live the life of yesteryear’s wealthy explorers. A sophistication that contrasts with the simplicity of the endless surroundings.

At Sonop everything is orientated towards the desert’s richness: all views are awe-inspiring and a large list of adventures allow guests to admire the desert’s genuine beauty at leisure. Every evening guests are invited to enjoy an opulent gastronomic experience, where silverware and candelabras set the mood, enhanced by black-tie and white gloves service. Flawless service and attention to detail characterise all facilities of the camp.

With its warm atmosphere, the cocktail & cigar lounge evokes with subtlety the splendor of colonial interiors. For guest’s ultimate comfort, Sonop also offers a spa with 2 double treatment rooms, a fitness center and heated outdoor infinity pool, all facing the desert’s vastness. Sonop also has its own stables. Many once-in-a-lifetime experiences will bring a bygone era to life.

Sonop’s unforgettable journey can be experienced through an all-inclusive rate. Prices are per person, per night and include accommodation, VAT, tourism levy, full board and all beverages (except premium brands and Champagne), a daily scenic sunrise drive and 3 pieces of laundry per day.
