Expect expedition-style grandeur at Zannier Hotels Sonop

Zannier Hotels Sonop is a luxurious tented camp nestled at the Southern extremity of the Namib desert, in the Hardap region (Namibia). Designed in authentic 1920’s British colonial style, this out-of-the-ordinary lodge offers a perfect expedition-style retreat in a stunning panoramic desert landscape. Constructed on top of enormous granite boulders, Zannier Hotels Sonop offers a remote and unspoilt setting within 13,800 acres of untouched wilderness. It features a spectacular open-air infinity pool, a beautiful spa and fitness centre with yoga sessions, to truly feel the surrounding natural world.

Every object and antique in the ten spacious tents are carefully selected – binoculars and telescopes, old maps, antique desks and handmade stationary – to ensure that every moment turns into a unique experience. From the reception room to the partially-walled bathroom and vintage bathtubs, and private terrace, everything focuses on the richness of the desert and awe- inspiring views. At Zannier Hotels Sonop, the thrill of exploration is omnipresent. When desert adventure calls, guests can opt for various guided excursions, including horse-riding from the lodge’s own stables, private dining atop of the sand dunes, electric fat-bike or walking trails, hot air balloon safari and private sunset safaris. The magic continues after dark with a nightly gala-style dinner, open-air cinema and stargazing under the endless African skies.

Zannier Hotels Sonop’s unforgettable journey can be experienced through an all-inclusive rate. It can be reached by car or by the air. The private air strip allows daily transfers to Windhoek or other Namibian hubs.
