“Magical Evening”
Reviewed 24 February 2017

We did not stay at this lodge, but enjoyed an outdoor buffet that was included with our stay at a nearby tented camp.

Not everyone will be as lucky as we were. The night we ate at the outdoor buffet there was a beautiful full moon with just a whisper of a warm evening breeze. The setting was magical. Just thinking of that evening enjoying a great meal under the warm African sky still makes me smile.

The breakfast basket that was prepared for our trip to the dunes the next morning was also nicely done. Overall, the hotel facilities and grounds were excellent, especially considering the remote location.

It was my second time at Sossusvlei Lodge and I have to say that it was again a fantastic stay! The stuff is so helpful and friendly, the food was fresh and delicous and our bungalow was clean and comfortable.
The new year´s eve was celebrated perfectly and affectionately. A perfect start into the new year. This lodge and the breathtaking surroundings are perkekt to relax and to forget the everyday stress. A big thank you to the whole stuff for an unforgettable wonderful time!
To the guests which are complaining because of "all the sand" I would like to recommend a hotel outside of a desert. And whoever is upset, because it rains rarely two or three drops, let me tell you that the animals and humans need the rain more than urgently. This is Africa! Who doesn´t understand how valuable rain in this region is, should be better fly to Athens ;-)

Whereas the entry, reception area and restaurant still are amazing, the 'rooms' definitely could use some work and modernization. Great food!
Walking through the Deadvlei, climbing Big Daddy, running down the highest dune straight...a must!!!

Sossusvlei Lodge is a wonderful lodge in the middle of nowhere, proofing that being remotely located does not have an impact on wonderful food, great accommodation and friendly service. Arriving at the lodge after having challenges on the road and being extremely tired it was wonderful to relax. Checking in was easy, having assistance to carry our luggage to our room. Dinning at Sossusvlei Lodge is a experience not likely to be forgotten. The food was excellent and the waiters very friendly.

Great food in the restaurant. the bar is also opened in the afternoon and evenings. Lodges with aircon are very cute. The place is clean, shower and everything is working. Great tour guide with perfect know how about animals and nature. Sossusvlei dunes we did by ourselves with the 4x4 truck. It was super nice! Wifi very week and often not working at the bar, only at reception area.

Dear Simone,
Thanks for the fantastic rating and review! Glad you enjoyed the clean accommodation units, the bar and the great food service at our restaurant. Wifi is bit of a daunting task to provide in the middle of the Desert.
Looking forward to welcome you back!
