Friendly staff, good food, good service at check in and dinner but can do with more staff at breakfast - had to ask couple of times for certain items. Accommodation adequate. Sossusvlei definitely worth a visit - road from Luderitz a challenge

Stayed: August 2016, travelled as a couple

We stayed here on a group tour and it was our first experience in Lodge accommodation in Namibia. From the welcome drink and refreshing hot towel on arrival right through to the knock on the door as our wake up call, nothing was too much trouble. We struck a day of high winds which made everything very dusty. The Lodge packed a great hamper for our breakfast. Food at the Lodge was served buffet style, with a great barbecue selection in the evening. Our host was Simon for the sunset drive. He was very knowledgeable and kept us all entertained throughout.

Room Tip: All are tent and attached bathroom facilities.

Lovely rooms, excellent food, perfect position and friendly and helpful staff throughout the lodge area.
We stayed here for two nights in Aug 2016 and we loved every minute of our stay.
Even myself as a guide, I was treated so well, and was assisted with all my requests to please my guests.
Even though I was given a "house" for the last night due to the lodge being full, the "house" was clean, organized and comfortable for me to stay in.
Well done to all staff at Sossusvlei lodge, always a stunning experience!

Room Tip: All rooms are lovely

Excellent setting at the Sesriem gate of Naukluft Park. It s great as we left 6am in the mornings to the Dunes. Accomodation tents well equipped. Service above excellent.. Food brilliant, good choice clever recycling, wide variety. Bedding great. Bathroom average. Room could be cleaner, but difficult with the dust and sand.
We did not have a private and quiet tent which were available , due to the booking agent at Taleni Africa. Ensure that you choose your tent as per plan of the resort. the layout. We were awake every night from the Generator as our tent was to close to the Dining room area.That was dissapointing for 3 nights as we have travelled for many years and stayed in several countries and battled with the booking agent.This we blame Taleni Africa for as staff on site were brilliant and knowledgeable. The guides were also excellent. F and B and Restaurant Managers brilliant. They went the extra mile for visitors. Karl Heinz GM of resort on site also very helpful.

Room Tip: If you book via Taleni Africa, choose your tent on the resort plan if privacy and quiet is important to u.

We stayed here only for two nights. Much too short! Our tent was beautiful and very comfortable. At night it turned out to be slightly chilly. Especially the children were complaining about that. But with some extra bedding it was all perfect.

The diners were perfect. We made a reservation for a table inside (which is obviously warmer in the winter nights). The dinner is a buffet and truly amazing. The children went back for more and more and more and ... well, more! They loved it.

The next day we traveled to the Deadvlei. Try to be there in the morning. From noon onwards it gets too hot. Climb the dunes. Run down the dunes and enjoy the truly bizarre landscape. Real money spenders can go on hot air balloon journeys before sunrise! We just travelled with our 4x4 to the Deadvlei and got stuck in the sand. Fortunately there were many drivers to pull us out again. Do not go there if you do not have a 4x4!

Stayed: August 2016, travelled with family
