Excellent accommodation close to park entrance with very friendly staff. We ordered a breakfast basket for our trip to the dunes and was really surprised with the treat that was packed. The dinner setting and and food surpassed all our expectations and the wine list is really good. Defintely worth a visit.

I stayed there during the 100km del Namib Race and the hospitality was exceptional! The staff was very friendly and helpful and the prices for drinks were very reasonable. The food was also very delicious and the bush dinner on our last evening was an unfortgetable experience.

In the middle of nowhere just close enough to the dunes you will find the Sossusvlei Lodge. People were helpfull, the room had great A/C and the buffet had tons of tasty food. We enjoyed a helicopter ride and the animals that lurk around the housing.

After visiting the dunes, we went for a drink and lunch to this lodge.

It is in good shape and you can feel the friendly and very welcoming atmosphere from the staff. As we were unfortunately not staying here but at the Namib Desert Lodge, where we were totally dissatisfied with the food, we were so happy to have a delicious lunch buffet here. So culinarily this lodge is highly recommendable after visiting the dunes and since it is located at the gate it is the place to be.

In Etosha, we have stayed two nights at Etosha Village, which belongs to the same chain and was also very pleasant.

Please have a look at the pictures how a good lunch buffet can look like.

This hotel lacks class but charges over-the-top prices! On arrival, the receptionist was anything but welcoming. The place Is probably acceptable as a 3 star hotel, no more than that, but charges 4 star prices at least. The rooms are tired and lack simple facilities like a fridge (one would reasonably expect one in a desert area!) The bathrooms are clean but in need of updating. For example, the restaurant had table mats that were chipped and marked and staff that were only moderately interested in service. On the plus side it is in a lovely setting and reasonably convenient for Sossusvlei itself. The food is also good, but the service poor. Some good training would definitely help! Definitely not to be recommended.
