Really good individual lodge accommodation, large bedroom, sitting area and bathroom with bath, shower and double basin. Outlook of bush, desert and wildlife, a waterhole which had lighting at night for watching wildlife coming to drink. Outside candlelit dining with excellent food all on grills and barbeques being freshly cooked as guests chose what they would like with a salad bar and dessert area inside. Minutes away from the Dunes area.

Quite busy in the common areas (a lot of groups stay at this lodge because it is just outside the gates of Sossusvlei), but quiet and comfortable room. We had the last building on the grounds with a nice look at Ellim Dune. Dinner was barbecue with a lot of choice and the food was splendid. Very friendly staff.

We enjoyed a two-night stay at the lodge with our small tour group. The contemporary setting is magnificent and suited to its desert surroundings. What an experience!

The individual bungalows are modern, clean, and well appointed with large bathrooms. However we consistently had problems controlling the air conditioning; maintenance workers tried fixing the problem, but it never was totally fixed. The in-room safe simply didn’t work properly. The directions for its use were convoluted and confusing, in spite of staff showing us how it worked. Other folks in our tour group had the same problem. In spite of these issues, we enjoyed our bungalow very much.

Dinner buffet was amazing, especially if you enjoy sampling a variety of game meat. The outdoor setting under the stars added to the experience. Breakfasts were quite good, but couldn’t compare with the incredible dinners. Wi-Fi is spotty and only available at common areas. However, you don’t go to the Namib Desert to spend lots of time online. This lodge is well located for easy access to the entrance of the park.

we spent two nights with our 4 kids at Sossusvlei Lodge in Sesriem, mainly because we wanted to enter the park an sunrise. Especially due to the bad roads in that part of Namibia it was a wise decision - rather not drive for an hour before entering the park if you want to to enjoy the perfekt light in the early morning or even climb the Big Daddy. The breakfast at the lodge was okay, the dinner with good choices and lot of bbq meat was great, the sundowner nice. Only the bar was a bit boring. We can recomment the lodge even if it is a bit too large for our tastewith too many "bus tourists"

We needed a comfy bed for sleep, aircon to escape the heat, convenient location for the dunes, and good food for sustenance. We got all four here.

Rooms: modern style bungalows. Would say they are like 3-4 stars luxury. Beds are comfy and got a good night's sleep. Showers are powerful and hot water. Aircon works. Quiet. Couldn't ask for more.

Location : literally just outside the gates to the park for the dunes. There's also a small watering hole at the lodge, sometimes you will see oryx or impala.

Food : dinner buffet was AMAZING! 8 different types of local meat (springbok, impala, warthog, etc) for the Braai BBQ along with the usual standard meats. Fish (kingklip, hake) too. Great selection of starters and desserts. It's great coming back from a long day of dunes to good food.

Breakfast next day was a much more muted affair and basic compared to the night before. Definitely go for a half board option here.

WiFi : available in the common areas. Slow, but sufficient for emails and WhatsApp.
