Spacious, well appointed and stylish room. Spectacular views with wildlife. Well situated to visit the dunes, which are a drive of approx 60kms. We'd advise to take the dune tour from the lodge in the early morning as self drive and waiting for the shuttle...More
Stayed for 2 nights whilst in Namibia.
Visiting famous dunes and this was a lovely place.
Excellent rooms but long boardwalk so take a headtorch.
Incredibly hot in the desert but this was a welcome oasis.
The early access to the park and having Deadvlei entirely to ourselves made staying here completely worthwhile - our drive and guide were first class. If that isn't important to you and you're looking for comfortable lodges, there are better ones outside the gates.
Here's how the park works - the main gate closes at sunset. Anyone staying outside of the park MUST be out of the gate by this time. It is an hour's drive from Sossusvlei to the gate so you'll need to leave an hour before...More

The road is gravel, needing a sturdy vehicle, but 4x4 is not needed to get to the lodge. Note that the C roads are better than D roads. The D roads may need 4x4 for river crossings. If the roads have been graded, they are good, if not, then the are rough and need to be driven slowly to preserve tyres. The road from the lodge to sossusvlei is tar, except for the last 5km, which is thick sand and requires a 4x4. There are Namibia wildlife vehicles that shuttle people this last 5km. However, I recommend you take the guided tour from the lodge, which leaves earlier than others, and will show you where to go for the best experience - the sunrise/breakfast tour.
