The Sossusvlei is strategically located in the centre of several towns and hamlets. All the roads in Namibia invariably lead to the Sossusvlei as it is the prime tourist attraction of the region. Therefore Sossusvlei hotels are placed all around the area so that the dunes can be easily accessible from any direction. Most of the accommodation in the region is lodges and cabins, but there are a few guest houses and boutique hotels providing facilities with international standards. All the hotels make it a point to offer tourist activities along with transportation to and from the sites. Since the hotels are located in and around the Namib Desert, the hotels make it a point to provide the right roofing to shelter the tourists from the harsh sun, but at the same time offering spectacular views of the sand dunes. The staff speaks several languages and therein lies the Sossusvlei hotels’ forte.
