To start planning your vacation to Sorris Sorris
One of four new luxury lodges opening in Namibia, Sorris Sorris is an exciting new addition to the safari circuit. Located near Brandberg Mountain in Damaraland, the region is characterized by dramatic mountain and vast desert scenery, with ancient rock art sites, rocky boulders just begging to be clambered up for a sundowner, and some fascinating wildlife. Go on nature drives in search of the desert-adapted elephants which roam far and wide in search of water, following ancient pathways.
The lodge itself offers a wonderfully luxurious experience, with no detail left unconsidered. You'll be welcomed at the door with a cool glass of champagne, and this sets the tone for your stay. Cuisine is a real highlight, with expert chefs creating delicious dishes combining local flavors with international twists. There are just nine beautiful suites, each designed to take in the surrounding landscape but filled with all of the creature comforts you'd expect and more. Pale woods, crisp linens and modern architectural design contrast with the rugged mountain terrain and offer a stylish base for your adventures.
The Sorris Sorris region is part of a community-based conservancy, where local tribes and communities benefit directly from the lodge and its profits, in exchange for working on conserving the environment and its wildlife.
The owner of the lodge was adopted and by communities in rural Namibia as a refugee from Angola when he was a child, and after his own success in business, wanted to give back to these rural communities by building these four lodges as a thank you. This vision of local people in poor and remote areas of the country directly benefiting from tourism is a big part of what makes Sorris Sorris special and you'll learn more about this during your stay.
9 suites each spacious and modern in its design, with an open plan living and sleeping space, beautiful photography adorning the walls and en-suite bathrooms.
There is a swimming pool and deck where you can lounge away an afternoon or between your activities, an open-fronted lounge which enjoys the breeze and uninterrupted views of Damaraland and the mountains beyond.
Nature drives, sundowners and simply relaxing at the lodge breathing in the views. It is also possible to meet the local community, who are being supported by the lodge through conservancy fees. And for an additional supplement, a hot air balloon flight with champagne breakfast is also possible, and a spectacular way to take in this wild and beautiful region.
Location & Directions
Sorris Sorris, Damaraland, Namibia
Sorris Sorris is located within the Sorris Sorris conservancy, a community-based conservancy area in Damaraland near Brandberg Mountain and not far from Twyfelfontein.
When to go
All year round destination, although the best time to visit Damaraland is from May to September as the temperature is tolerably cool, especially at night. The optimum game viewing times are between June and November. The land will have dried out meaning animals must again come to waterholes to drink. Summer (November to April) also known as the rainy season is best time to travel to Damaraland for bird watching as migratory birds (both intra-African and Palaearctic) flock into the park's many habitats after the summer rains.
