You can't get any closer to the park entrance (unless you are staying in the park!) We very much enjoyed our stay here. We were one of a few tourists there so they upgraded us to a chalet/tent with a better view. The room itself is very comfortable and very large (even includes a fridge!) The bathroom is enormous and includes a large soaking tub. Staff was very helpful and friendly. We booked several activities through the lodge including the sundowners nature drive (epic!) and a guided tour through the park. Our guide was wonderful - very knowledgeable and very proud which was a good combo! There is a pool but it was very cold so we didn't use it. The views are EPIC here. The food is buffet which was just ok. It wasn't bad but all of our other meals in Namibia were excellent so it was a tough comparison. (This is the only reason I can't give it a 5 star.) Overall, if you can't get into the park lodges, then I would recommend this hotel very much.

The lodge is next to the park entrance, so very good location. This lodge belongs into my top-favourites not only in Namibia but all over the world. It has everything just perfect - the planning, houses, dinner, the view to the waterhole and lights durign the night-time, staff - everything. The hotel was very clean. Hotel staff very professional so I even didn’t expect so high professionalism as it is lodge in desert (I mean the best and say it as recognition). Rooms and interior was cozy, stylish and beautiful. All worked perfectly. Food was delicious. Pool was available and hence the winter we enjoyed it. Wifi was available only around the pool and reception but it was good. If I only could return one day… And I wish hard corona peak times will be over soon so that the lodge can enjoy many guests and shine at its best!

We've stayed for two nights in the lodge. It's location is really good. I'ts very close to the entry of the Sossusvlei Nation Park. Even it's a big lodge, it was nice to stay there. The bungalow was big. We'd a beautiful view into the dessert an the mountains. The staff of the lodge were very friendly. Also the food was good.

We spent two nights at the beautiful Sossusvlei Lodge and what a treat! This lodge is beautiful and clean with great food and excellent service. We were treated like royalty and yet friends. A special shout out to Ailly who's smile started our days off right. She is bright, friendly and good at her job. We were quite impressed when we saw how professional and calm the workers remained when one group acted like spoiled brats at dinner, complaining for the sake of complaining. If you ever read a bad review of this place take it with a grain of salt. This place and their workers are top notch!

A perfect spot for experiencing a wide range of activities: hot air balloon tours, dune climbing, but, above all, an unforgettable bush dinner under the stars! Around the swimming pool, two friendly wildebeest were socializing with us. The food was great and the staff were very kind. Amazing views from the lodge tower should not be missed.
