We had a wonderful stay with great staff, delicious food and beautiful surroundings!
Great pool area, helpful staff (they helped us with an impromptu birthday celebration), informative and friendly driver on an excursion to the dunes. Highly recommended!

We stayed for 2 nights at this lodge as we explored, Sossusvlei, Dune 45, Deadvlei and Sesriem Canyon. The lodge is situated in a gorgeous valley which can be enjoyed sitting on your own decked area in front of your room. The rooms are spacious and very comfortable with beautiful decor. The common areas are very welcoming including the 2 pools. Dinners were excellent, 3 courses and a large variety of drinks to select from. Breakfast was equally as good with a large selection, plentiful, including eggs, bacon etc cooked to your liking. As we were doing a self drive tour there is plenty of parking for your vehicle. Staff were amazing and extremely helpful. A 2 night stay we will never forget.

Thank you

We stayed here in September with our two children aged 20 and 18 and we all absolutely loved it. The bedrooms were nicely decorated and bed was very comfortable but the views were amazing. We could have sat there all day. The evening meals were lovely and the chef came out to chat to the guests after dinner which was a lovely touch. We did their guided tour to the dunes which was fantastic, guide was very knowledgable and good fun. We had a very nice lunch too.

We very much enjoyed our 2 night stay in this delightful lodge that blended so well with the Namibian surrounds. We enjoyed the combination of thatched bungalows, al fresco dining area and pleasant spaces to lounge around the pools.
We were impressed by the confident and friendly style of commodification of the staff at the lodge.
Our tip to Sossusvlei with Johnny as our guide and driver was excellent. He was delightful and informative company and laid on a lavish lunch under the trees at Sossus and especially attentive to our physical needs.

A comfortable lodge offering trips to the Dunes. Our guide here was knowledgeable and pleasant. The lodge is on different levels so not particularly suitable for people with mobility problems. The food was good and made even more so by being served under huge starlit skies. A small watering hole frequented by a lone zebra was an added bonus. Great views from the small terrace outside the chalet.
