From our tented lodge by the river bed, dried up though, we could see wild Oryxes strolling right in front of our tent. There was no TV or wifi in the tent, but we had everything we needed for our 2 night stay, tea and coffee, a safe, a spacious bathroom with hot water shower. We were surprised to have...

Dear A L, Thank you for the great review! Glad you enjoyed our location, the roaming wildlife and the quality and variety of our buffets! The wifi connections is dependent on our national telephone lines that is not always very stable. We are looking forward to welcome you back! Best wishes, The Sossusvlei Lodge Team

Friendly staff, good food, good service at check in and dinner but can do with more staff at breakfast - had to ask couple of times for certain items. Accommodation adequate. Sossusvlei definitely worth a visit - road from Luderitz a challenge

We stayed here on a group tour and it was our first experience in Lodge accommodation in Namibia. From the welcome drink and refreshing hot towel on arrival right through to the knock on the door as our wake up call, nothing was too much trouble. We struck a day of high winds which made everything very dusty. The Lodge...

We stayed here only for two nights. Much too short! Our tent was beautiful and very comfortable. At night it turned out to be slightly chilly. Especially the children were complaining about that. But with some extra bedding it was all perfect. The diners were perfect. We made a reservation for a table inside (which is obviously warmer in the...

Our posh tent was very lush, but surely that level of posh isn't needed at the edge of the desert? Free standing bath (during a drought) etc... Huge shower, two sinks?? I'd rather have less fancy stuff and a lower price. The restaurant serves buffet style food with lots of choice and the meat is cooked whilst you wait. The...

The Sossusvlei Lodge was our first lodge in Namibia after the first night in Windhoek. We arrived in our own car. Lucky us, we got assigned the brand new "tent" 111, together with 112 the newest solid huts. This was definitely an upgrade to the older "tents", and the huts are located at the very edge of the area. The...
