This lodge is just outside the entrance to the national park and is therefore very convenient for an early start on the dunes. But beyond that its not got a huge amount to recommend it. The architecture is quirkly at best and distinctly odd at worst. This is exampled in the accomodation; part room part tent. The view across the plain is uninspiring but they have done their best to attract some game to the waterhole and there were plenty of birds around. The food was equally uninspiring – a bbq buffet where the meat is copious but overly marinated and the vegetables over cooked and warm at best. Expensive – but then there aren't many other options this close to Sossuvlei. And that's why people come.
