Sossusvlei lodge is the closest lodge to the park and therefore ideally placed to get in and see the dunes before the heat becomes intense, The chalet tents are very comfortable and the food was excellent. There are jackels outside which come up to the perimeter wall when you are eating dinner Al fresco, but they cannot get near to...

Although only the security staff were around, they were expecting us and we were still able to check in and head to bed. The room was an individual lodge seperate from the...

My family stayed three nights at Sossusvlei Lodge and it was a very pleasant place to stay. We had nice rooms at the edge of the hotel site, which meant that we had uninterrupted views from our rooms (worth asking for if you are booking). We liked the buffet-style meals, and particularly enjoyed the large variety in the evenings. The...

Stayed for 2 nights after travelling from Windhoek. As a previous reviewer stated it is a long drive on gravel but not at all difficult and a stunning drive. The accomodation is very comfortable with a good bathroom and very comfortable bedroom with a terrace at the back overlooking the desert - beautiful sunsets. We found the staff pleasant and...

Very nice property in the middle of the desert. Cabins were comfortable (but very basic) , food was very good, staff helpful and friendly, but... the cabins are not air conditioned, so it does get very hot in the summer, and because there was a gap at the bottom of the door to my cabin, a desert rat managed to...

We stayed here in August 2006 and went for a balloon flight, they forgot to wake in time they were half an hour late and, the next day we heard the same from some other people.

A wonderful lodge in the middle of nothing, right at the gate of Namib desert. The rooms are like de luxe bungalows half walled and half tented, beautifully furnished. Good dinner and good breakfast. Little but beautiful pool. What's more, you're right on the gate to Sossusvlei and the Namib desert. Warning: if you're looking for something CHEAP, DO NOT...
