At Sorris Sorris, guests receive a fantastic warm welcome and the food is outstanding. Currently there is no policy concerning children, but as the terrain is very rocky and the pool is unfenced, you may wish to consider whether the property is suitable if you have youngsters aged under 12.
ACCESS & LOCATION:
Sorris Sorris Lodge overlooks the Ugab River and has amazing views of the Brandberg Massif, Namibia’s highest mountain.
ACCOMMODATION & FACILITIES:
Sorris Sorris is set upon raised wooden walkways at the top of a rocky hill or kopje, above Damaraland’s desert plains. The main lodge boasts panoramic windows that can be folded back to open up the large decking area, which has plenty of comfortable seating and a marvellous view. Have your meals inside or outside, at individual wooden tables laid with pale blue fabric that complement the clean, natural décor of the Lodge. One side of the decking houses sunloungers within a shaded area, while at the other side there is a fire pit with seating, ideal for gathering around at night and sharing stories! Wherever you sit on the platform, keep your eye out for a peek at the elusive desert elephants of the region, a particularly spectacular sight as the sun sets behind the Brandberg Mountains. Finally, the Lodge’s cool V-shaped swimming pool is very refreshing after a long trek across the desert – or at any other time of day!
Guest accommodation at Sorris Sorris consists of nine spacious rooms, all accessed via steps down from the main area. They are spread around the base of the rocky outcrop and boast truly breathtaking views. For some guests, their square structures may appear a little stark at first glance, but all interiors are very comfortable indeed. The décor continues the neutral theme of wood, whites and blues, which gives the rooms a very light and airy feel. Whether you select one of the four with double beds or one of the five with twin beds, all are sumptuous, with floor-to-ceiling glass doors opening out onto a private outside terrace. The beds are raised on a wooden platform and other furnishings include a table and easy chairs. The open-plan bedroom flows into a bathroom area, featuring bath, separate toilet cubicle, and a spacious rain shower!
Activities at Sorris Sorris Lodge are centred on exploring the surrounding area and its wildlife. Guided walks and scenic drives give you a chance to track and spot the elusive desert-adapted elephants in the Ugab River. Take a guided tour to the Brandberg Massif, famous for its ancient rock art! Enjoy the cultural experience of visiting the Sorris Sorris community and learning all about how they live and work. Alternatively, simply float across the sky on a hot air balloon ride and enjoy this vast and exciting landscape from up high. Then, at the end of the day, relax with a sundowner as you watch the sun set behind the Brandberg Mountains. This part of the world has so much to show you, you will not know where to start!
