We just ate at the lodge. Great dinner buffet, breakfast was disappointing. Stir fry was delicious. You eat outside and tables are not lit very well. It was also chilly in the evening. Dress prepared!More

We stayed at the lodge for two nights. Breakfast was the fairly usual spread with freshly made eggs to order. We both especially liked the granola. Dinner was a huge spread of a lot of different kinds of game meats. Probably 8 or so different...ones per night. I sampled several kinds each night. They also had other meats, chicken, pork, fish, calamari, stir fry, salads, etc. It was the most extensive dinner buffet we had in Namibia. Delicious.More

We did not stay at the lodge. We walked to the restaurant from our campsite at Sossus Oasis for two dinners and a breakfast. The buffets were excellent, particularly the dinner buffet which offered stir fry and grilled animal of your choice. The out door...setting is very pleasant, particularly for dinner under the stars.

We were staying at Desert Quiver Camp which was excellent (see report). Breakfast and one of our two dinners were at Sossusvei Lodge. Breakfasts, which were seated inside were primarily buffet style and there was a plentiful quantity and quality of all the usual items...in a room opposite. Eggs were cooked to order on an outside grill. The only issue at breakfast was the sheer number of people trying to get their food for the early morning departure to the dunes. This meant the buffet area which is in a long narrow room was something of a rugby scrum. Dinner used a similar system with the two indoor areas providing buffets of starters and desserts. The main course was cooked and served over outside griddles. However, the diners were all sat outside and in July it gets very cold so a case of dining in fleeces but we were still cold. They really needed some patio heaters although that could pose a safety problem as there were a large number of people milling around between the indoor and outdoor buffets. Overall, not the best of dining experiences.More
