From the air it appears as random building in the middle of nowhere but at the front door it is spectacular. We fly in with Jangwa Adventures, which was an excellent flight. We were greeted by Luzarn from the lodge and took the short 2km drive to the lodge. What awaited was an oasis. Check in was easy. Pool, bar...

In the early morning the oryx is eating the green next to the pool. From a high watch tower you have...

The Sossusvlei Lodge is just outside the park gates. It is a very clean and inviting accommodation. We have stayed at the Sossusvlei Dune Lodge, and this is no less classy. Each of the cottages are well appointed

The lodge and accommodations are fantastic. Each has a little porch to look our on water hole. Always a surprise. The dinner buffet was beyond belief so many choices and all perfectly prepared...hardebeest, kudu, gemsbok yum! Stir fry also available for those less adventuresome. Incredible dining atmosphere.

This hotel is in a beautiful setting adjacent to the park entrance. Our room had a good view overlooking the park and there seemed to be ample parking. Our only complaint was that our food got cold very quickly, as a result of it getting chilly in the evenings.
