Even on the SHIFTING SANDS of the DESERT the shadow of THE CROSS remains CONSTANT. On your way to Sossusvlei - in the heart of the Namib Desert there is a place where time does not exist. The hand of God paused on these vast plains, touching your senses as never before. A world of colour, awe inspiring plains, surrounded by magnificent mountains, you can experience tranquility, silence and solitude. Betesda Lodge , 38 km from Sesriem, a get-away or just an overnight stop.
