    Hi! Can you make dinner reservations here if you are staying at another lodge (like the Sossus Desert Lodge)?

    30 degrees during the day, but you'll need a good jumper in the evening. in the lodge, you'll be probably dining outside, so a few layers is necessary

    I noticed that when I read “Great potential let down.” The hotel was there right away trying to defend itself and blamed the guest for everything that went wring instead of being a man or women about it. Denied it all. But after I read “Very bad service!!! Not recommendable” The owners never said a word. That to me tells me this place is not a good place at all. As a manager, The first rule is You don't sit back and blame the customer for everything. My wife and I are planning a trip soon to Africa. And you better believe we will not be staying at Sossusvlei Lodge.....
