In Namibia, a favourite old destination has a new lease of life. There are new plunge pools, more space and sleeker fittings in the 10 freestanding suites at andBeyond Sossusvlei Desert Lodge (from about £540 per night) – but also solar panels on the roofs, fully powering each one, and sophisticated water‑reuse systems that recycle 100,000 litres of grey water a month. What hasn’t changed is the 55-million-year-old scene surrounding the lodge: the vast, saffron-hued emptiness of the Namib Desert.
