A value for money accommodation relatively close to the Namib Naukluft National Park!

4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 16 Jan 2023
We stayed two nights at Little Sossus Lodge as a base for visiting Sossusvlei and the dunes at Namib-Naukluft National Park. Accommodation inside the park is expensive so this is one very good option although there is enough driving distance until the entrance to the Park. It's not just a value for money but also a beautiful place. Our main issue was the wi-fi that was constantly not working almost in all our stay there. Only the second night we had connection. Our room was nice and cozy. Lodge staff was taking care each cabin so we had warm water for shower. Mosquitos was a bit of a problem every night so keep your room door always closed and unfold the bed nets before the night falls if you are staying here. Even so, we had to "battle" every night with the mosquitos. Despite this we had a good sleep. Dinner was included and it was delicious. Breakfast is very basic, on the limited side I would say. There is a small swimming pool but especially the first day it was full of people. There is enough space though to sit by and relax. The Lodge has a caracal as a pet, that they grew up since it was little, so it is very friendly and calm. It's like the mascot of the place. Don't be scared if you notice it walking around you. The surroundings are beautiful and we enjoyed both afternoons sitting outside our room staring the fields, while sunlight was turning gold! Sunsets at this place are amazing like everywhere in this blessed by nature country!

Our family stayed in both the camp site and the lodge and both were wonderful. The scenery is gorgeous and it is a great base to explore soussevlei and the surrounding area. Food is exceptional though the wifi never really worked while we visited.

This must be the best lodge to stay in, in an area with a lot of choice. The owner was so friendly and helpful, putting a huge effort into renewing the place after covid - new buildings, lots of new planting to bring green and shade. The dinner was fantastic, and the rooms lovely if a bit hot (because they are built of stone - a ceiling fan might be a good idea).

We decided to spoil ourselves and go to a nice lodge in the desert. We sadly chose Klein Sossusvlei. At R4000 per night. We were on a long trip and after a month of travelling looked forward to relaxing next to their pool.
We got there and the place looked pretty bleak.
It was in The process of being upgraded. But was incomplete. The owners kept telling us how amazing it was going to be. Well we were paying prices for a five star place which was two star. Not really interested in how it would be. The bathroom boiler was switched on once. The following day they didn’t even bother to switch on. The bedroom was clean but no supplies of water shampoo soap etc. one little bottle of hand wash. Next to the beds were some bathroom mats. A completely inflated price. When we complained about. the owner halved the price which was still high for what we got. She said she thought we were not from an African country. So she charged for overseas visitors. I found this rather cheeky.
Food was fairly good. Could not use the pool as there were about 8 construction workers mixing concrete around the pool.

Little Sossus Lodge LODGE, Owner at Little Sossus Lodge, responded to this reviewResponded 17 March 2022

Dear Thea,

This is really a very disappointing and unreasonable feedback. Firstly we have no control over the platforms you choose to book and rates you agree to. Secondly when I truly discovered your residency I good hearted offered you our SADC rates. I did not charge you oversea rates, you booked through booking.com. On your arrival I did inform you that we are renovating the lodge but that we will at all times respect your privacy. Also that if you are not happy with this I will gladly advise another lodge or even our other lodge Tsauchab. You preferred to stay on and all builders where given off when you where at the pool or at lodge. Always such a huge disappointment that when guest have complaints you only read about it a week after their stay rather during their stay to ensure you have done all you can to ensure their time in Namibia does not end up in this.

So glad we found this place. Out two nights at Little Sossus were very special, for many reasons. Hosts Darlene and Polla were very welcoming and nothing was too much trouble, from providing for our every need from the very well stocked shop to free wi-fi on the verandah and — wonder of wonders — fresh vegetables from their own garden. The campsites each have their own donkey-fired, electrified ablutions/scullery and covered parking (even accommodating our 2,8m-high camper). The views across the valley were awesome, the two waterholes in front of the campsites attracted oryx and springbok at dusk, and there’s a swimming pool! Darlene and Polla are new hosts at the campsite (the lodge across the road is still under reconstruction right now) have put terrific effort into restoring the place after devastating floods earlier in the year, so it’s just going to get better still. Perfect place from which to visit Sossusvlei, the entrance to which is 30km away over good road. Heed the hosts’ advice about visiting, then you won’t struggle to Deadvlei in the afternoon heat like we did :)

Room tip: All campsites good, but if you have a choice, closer to the pool and farm shop is convenient but still very private.

Just the one night here. We arrived very early but we're still allowed to check in. Friendly welcome. Gardens are interesting, Oryx were wandering about in the grounds initially. Food was ok but our room was unbearably hot, difficult to sleep. Flanelette sheets didn't help. After we checked out we went on a tour and came back to collect the car. A different staff member on reception this time was not over friendly at all
