Fantastic first lodge of our trip

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 15 Jan 2023via mobile
Fabulous lodge for our 3 night stay in the area.  Classy 5 star establishment with extremely friendly staff in all departments.

The chalet was air conditioned, reliable hot water in the rain shower. His n Her sinks to save time in the morning. Standard of maintenance and cleanliness excellent.

Food was great in choice quality and preparation,  beautifully presented each evening. Buffet style starters and deserts and BBQ station, stir fry station and fish station ready to prepare your choice fresh on request.  We were impressed with the choices of meats available,  presumably in a game lodge responsible animal husbandry means that fresh meat becomes available daily.

Breakfast was great with a good selection of cereals, including porridge,  fresh fruits, as well as bacon and eggs etc at the eggs station.

The pool area is very good and we enjoyed a relaxing dip on our day at leisure. I had been worried about the heat but there were plenty of sun canopies over each bed to protect us. Plenty of dips and keeping exposure to a minimum kept us from getting overheated or burnt.

Nice little shop selling a variety of things, toiletry items and souvenirs at reasonable prices.

The location is great, and it was wonderful to be able to watch out for wildlife during a swim, or meals or drinks  etc.

There is an activities office who can arrange a number of trips during a stay.

Overall an excellent place for our 3 night stay.

Lovely location, terrible food arrangements. It was a free for all at mealtimes and the chefs at the grill used the same tongs on all different raw meat!

Rooms ok but we had connecting rooms for our boys which went via the bathrooms. WTH?! Sossusvlei itself is wonderful and we had a great guide to take us up big daddy. A real highlight of our trip! But take lots of water when you climb big daddy!

Dear Jasmine,
Thank you for the rating and feedback.
Glad you enjoyed our lovely location and the wonderful guided excursion to Sossusvlei!
Our 3 family units at our Lodge do have lockable inter-leading doors as per our descriptions available on all platforms.
We serve our renowned buffet meals - understandably this is not in every-one's taste.
Best wishes,
The Sossusvlei Lodge Team

Loved this place. In the middle of the desert as close as you can get to the gate of the Sousosvlei park gate. Luxury air conditioned rooms with views over the desert with Oryx, Jackel and ostrich roaming past.
Al fresco dining under the stars with no noise of light pollution. Great place, great location and great food.

We were welcomed with cold flannels and iced tea and allocated our room. We were in 126 which was a lovely chalet, a beautiful room with bath and shower. It overlooks a waterhole in the desert when the occasional wild animal comes to drink! Lunch was ready as we arrived which was Oryx stroganoff, delicious.
Everything was very clean and manicured. We were told that there was Wifi in reception but we were close and got it in the chalet.
The staff were very helpful.
Dinner was a BBQ theme. Starters and puddings, with cheese, available to help yourself then there were stations for meat and stir fry cooking. We had lemon mussels as a starter then beef, oryx and red hartibeest with stir fried vegetables and noodles, followed by creme caramel and cheese and biscuits. All freshly cooked and beautifully served.
The following day we set off early to go into the desert arriving back at lunchtime to a curry which we don't like but made do with some salad which as fine.
Overall a lovely experience.

Rooms are located in separate lodges dotted around the complex, some have fantastic views across the reserve and desert, great for sunset watching.
Food served outside on the terrace with views over the watering hole. Food buffet style great selection with fish and meat cooked to order at the BBQs . Staff all helpful , the our only issue was the ac was not working on arrival, the maintenance man “mended” it, saying it had been set to heat. We boiled that night. Realised the following day he had just set it to fan,not cool!
