#11 of 15 Speciality lodging in Sossusvlei
The Soft Adventure Camp: The Soft Adventure Camp has been designed for easy tourists, overland tours, that do not want to spend much money, do not want to carry their own tents, have a simple but clean chalet with proper beds and private bathroom with shower. Each chalet is individually placed around the granite hill, each has its own car park - right next to the chalet. 2 sides of the chalets are canvas as from 1 m and the other 2 sides are normal chalet walls. The bathroom is tiled and has some open space between the walls and the roof. This has been closed with shade net. It is great - for its 'close to nature-feeling' and with outdoor enthusiasts it is greatly appreciated. The chalets only have a movable water-cooling system, which is not comparable with a proper high-speed & silent air-condition! The Soft Adventure Camp has a central main building, with central cooking facilities. Food is prepared In this open kitchen and served directly. If the wind should be blowing, the sides of this social gathering Place can be closed with canvas. There is a small bar in this unit. Individual guests, who have chosen this option are often taken to Namib Naukluft Lodge for their meals. The Soft Adventure Camp is app. 1.5 km away from the lodge and the distance can easily be walked. However, our guides and staff are also happy to transfer guests - for example in the evening.

We booked at the campsite but got a free upgrade to the lodge, which was just fabulous! Huge clean room with balcony with a view on the desert, equipped with fridge and nicely decorated. Extra comfy beds. I particularly enjoyed the setting of the lodge , in the heart of the Namib desert , convenient for visiting Sossusvlei. I loved having breakfast or dinner in the porch, watching oryx and springboks coming for a visit... this is also a magical place to admire the starry sky , engulfed by the silence of the desert, relaxing in the swimming pool...the only sound we would hear was the singing of birds , there are plenty of them , don’t forget to have a look at their magnificent, huge nests on the nearby trees . Food was simply delicious and the staff kind and helpful.. one evening cooks and waiters even performed a nice show for the guests, singing traditional namibian songs. If you leave early for visiting Soussusvlei , they can prepare a packed breakfast to bring with you. We will keep great memories of our stay there!

One of the family members that was part of our trip to Namibia passed away a week before our stay at Soft adventure camp. The camp was informed and did not even pay us back 50% of the full amount paid. I will say it was a bit insensitive? This was our first trip that all accommodation was booked ahead and fully paid - All the other places paid us back in full.(Thank you - this is much appreciated!). I've booked "Soft adventure camp" through booking.com - also got no assistance from their side. It's definitely not about the money, but rather the principle. Thank you!

We were very tired after a day of hard driving from Luderitz. The view - wow and wow again!! The accommodation between the rocks - incredible. The quietness of the place - can't describe it. This is most definitely a place to visit. We will go again, but will then stay or at least two days.

This budget choice offers great value and no compromise. Checked-in at main lodge and stayed for complimentary afternoon coffee and cake. Wi-Fi also available here not at the camp 1km away. Camp great. Terrific small pool. They were busy so dinner was at the camp. The food came up from the main lodge and was delicious. Highly recommended

When I told my husband and my mother that I had booked accommodation at the Soft Adventure Camp – which was described on one site as being rustic! – they were very apprehensive, more so as the accommodation was described as being partially tented. Let me just say, the apprehension was soon replaced by complete and utter adulation! While the Soft Adventure Camp certainly was one of the more “rustic” places we stayed, it is spectacularly beautiful and our stay was very comfortable. The reception we received was not only very friendly, but also very professional. The welcome drink was very welcome indeed after all the time we had spent on the road. To top it off, Emba, the tame Springbok made our welcome very special indeed! While I am on the topic of the staff, I must say that I was very impressed when one of the lodge staff (Johann) drove to the adventure camp in the late afternoon to check on the guests and to see whether there was anything we needed. This gentleman was just as friendly as the receptionist. Both units were exactly the same: a large bedroom equipped with two single beds, a table and two chairs. Tea and coffee facilities (including an electric kettle) are provided, as are glasses, cups, saucers and spoons. Each room has a large en-suite bathroom, with a nice shower. The (single) beds were very comfortable and the bed lined was amazing. We all slept very well. Despite the fact that the units are not advertised as having modern air conditioners, both were fitted were air conditioners which made the units very comfortable. Apart from these comforts, the units were indeed rustic – part tent, part formal structure. The units were spotlessly clean upon our arrival. The Soft Adventure Camp has a bar and entertainment area, but on the night of our stay this area was closed, but we were advised that we could enjoy drinks and meals at the lodge nearby. Next to the bar area is a stunning pool set into the rocks and sporting sublime views. I could see myself spending a lot of time in the pool enjoying a local beer and watching the sunset (which is exactly what I did!) Although the Soft Adventure Camp is advertised as self-catering, it is not self-catering in the normal sense where one can expect some kitchen facilities. I would say that unless you have a fully fitted bush kitchen, one should not stay at the Soft Adventure Camp and expect to be able to self-cater. Fortunately, we had everything we needed to be able to cook a nice supper. If I had to criticise the set-up it would be that the tents are grouped a bit too closely together, which meant that it was absolutely impossible to miss the spectacle of our elderly neighbour prancing around outside his unit wearing only his briefs and shoes! But, even this could not dampen our enjoyment of the Soft Adventure Camp! Oh, and a bar fridge in the units would be great – you know: for the drinks! Now, you may be asking why the “excellent” review with a title of “wow!”? Quite simply because of this idyllic establishment has such a magnificent setting! We simply did not want to leave! I cannot imagine any future trip to Namibia which does not include at least one night in the Soft Adventure Camp! We. Will. Be. Back!
