Sheer luxury in the desert. Beautifully appointed rooms, perfect for in the desert! Evening buffets exceptional, made extra special as they're outdoors - add wonderful African flavor to the whole experience. Lovely sitting out in the desert sand enjoying sundowners. Special gateway to the Sossusvlei dunes! Would definitely return!

Best part of my stay was time with the guide, Simon. I had four excursions with him. Each outing, he was passionate, articulate, and pleasant to be with. The rest of the staff were not quite as helpful, particularly the activities office. When asked to provide help in air transportation, they simply gave a list of vendors, and neglected to...

We did not stay at this lodge, but enjoyed an outdoor buffet that was included with our stay at a nearby tented camp. Not everyone will be as lucky as we were. The night we ate at the outdoor buffet there was a beautiful full moon with just a whisper of a warm evening breeze. The setting was magical. Just...

Whereas the entry, reception area and restaurant still are amazing, the 'rooms' definitely could use some work and modernization. Great food! Walking through the Deadvlei, climbing Big Daddy, running down the highest dune straight...a must!!!

Sossusvlei Lodge is a wonderful lodge in the middle of nowhere, proofing that being remotely located does not have an impact on wonderful food, great accommodation and friendly service. Arriving at the lodge after having challenges on the road and being extremely tired it was wonderful to relax. Checking in was easy, having assistance to carry our luggage to our...

Excellent accommodation close to park entrance with very friendly staff. We ordered a breakfast basket for our trip to the dunes and was really surprised with the treat that was packed. The dinner setting and and food surpassed all our expectations and the wine list is really good. Defintely worth a visit.

In the middle of nowhere just close enough to the dunes you will find the Sossusvlei Lodge. People were helpfull, the room had great A/C and the buffet had tons of tasty food. We enjoyed a helicopter ride and the animals that lurk around the housing.
