Sossusvlei Lodge
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 9 November 2016

The lodge is located on the plains of the Namib desert. The cabins consist of a composite of a stone build unit containing the hall, the shower/bathroom and toilet and supporting walls for the canvas of the tent. The inside is luxurious and spacious, with air conditioning and adjoining single beds that guarantee a good sleep quality. There is no mini-bar or hairdryer. One socket takes European plugs, no American or Australian. There is an electronic in-room safe. There is a swimming pool (about 3 x 7 m) and pool towels are available at the reception. All meals are served in buffet style and are good. At dinner they offer at least ten different meats of game (among it zebra, hartebeest, warthog, impala, black wildebeest, oryx…). The bar has limited seating (especially in the shadow). Sometimes it gets crowded because people from neighbouring sites (lodges or campsites) that have no meal service come here for restaurant or bar. In general service is good.

Excellent place to stay in Sesriem just at the entrance of the Park. Clean and spacious rooms with all commodities. Friendly staff. Attention is given to small details which can make the difference. The buffet is various, copious and served outside with a view on the desert. Would stay there again with no hesitation.

Lovely situation, very nice staff and some wild animals to be seen close up. The lunch was lovely and the service good. Looks like a nice hotel as well, but we did not stay overnight only for lunch. .......

We travelled here to visit the national park & see Sossusvlei & we weren't disappointed. Sossusvlei Lodge is a 1 minute drive from the gate of the national park. The accommodation at Sossusvlei Lodge is well laid out & if you have one of the safari tents in the front row of accommodation you get a great view (we had a great location as we stayed for 3 nights). There were oryx roaming around the property & great bird life because of the waterhole (including owls).

Food-wise, the buffet was really nice , but make sure you get there early as some of the tour groups that travel through get there early & raze through everything. The evening meal was lovely in that there was a bbq stand where you could choose the meat you wanted (Impala, ostrich, beef, eland, kudu etc et ) & have it cooked to your liking. It was delicious! We also found the staff friendly & helpful. I would stay here again & would recommend

I cannot comment on the hotel itself because we stayed at their Desert Camp and only came for supper. They have changed the concept from a few years ago when only guests from their own establishments could dine there and it was more exclusive and special. Now it is open to everyone and the food reflects this. There is a huge amount of tourists( mainly German with a big number of French too) which need to be fed. The buffet was huge but the dishes were bland and predictable. The game meats were tough and sinewy , the lamb chops were still raw and we will never go back. To top it all off, I picked up a stomach bug which completely ruined my balloon ride the next morning. If possible, rather order the Braai Basket and make your own dinner. At R 275 per person for the buffet, it is simply not worth it and feels like a tourist rip-off.
