Lovely accommodation, but mediocre food

Turner, Chris - 28th Mar, 2018

Great location and excellent guide drives.

Morino, Meredith - 08th Jan, 2018

Very well organised, although home for many tourists, really good and fresh food, big and clean rooms, bathroom has been the best of our whole stay in Namibia

Zimmermann, Silke - 08th Nov, 2017

Dreadful - this was not 'luxury' accommodation, no warm welcome here, found it quite basic, really poor customer service, very busy and staff not able to cope with numbers, hot food was poor, only advantage is location. Two nights was too long here, couldn't wait to leave it

O'brien, Aileen - 19th Oct, 2017

Nice lodge, food was good, nice activities available.

Regelman, Jeff - 23rd Jun, 2017

Good standard of accommodation and food.Staff not v helpful in the restaurant and breakfast time was chaotic.

Edwards, Faye - 03rd Jun, 2017

Very nice hotel, very nice dinner and breakfast.

Rao, Girish - 10th Jan, 2017

Only 500meters from the park entrance, room (without TV but this is not the point) and food were very good, but wi-fi area was limited, and the swimming pool was kind of small.

Grossmann,marc - 21st Nov, 2016

Great location at the edge of the park. A must see

Thorson, Chris - 10th Nov, 2016

excellent position, excellent dinner, not very good rooms

Dominici, Antonella - 31st Oct, 2016

Great location and rooms. Service is OK. They have buffet lunches and dinner. There are vegetarian dishes available just not a lot of choices.

Koduvayur, Sujatha - 15th Aug, 2016

A great selection of game meats for dinners, which was nice. The staff were also helpful if you asked for advice on how and when to drive into sossusvlei. Very conveniently located just outside the gates to sesriem.

Bishop, Lee - 28th Jul, 2016

The best place in Namibia! The food is perfect and the staff is always smiling. The rooms are very clean. The thing I didn't like is that the chefs who cook outdoors is also not given as divided a jacket or a fleece to keep warm, the evening is really cold. The lodge is so expensive that can afford to give them some more suitable garment for the outdoor work.

Magistrelli,anna - 24th May, 2016

Very nice! Nice accommodations. Excellent food. Beautiful view!

Barrick, Wally - 21st Jan, 2016

Best accommodations on the entire trip. Very classy place

Jeltrup, Eric - 18th Oct, 2015

Great place, beautiful setting, the diner buffet is awesome and worth the trip just for it.

Keusseyan, Celine - 29th Aug, 2015

the room was good. good location, close to the park entrance. It has been fantastic have dinner under the stars. The food was very good, particular the meat and the noodles.

Benocci, Massimo - 21st Aug, 2015

Beautiful lodge with very good services and delicious food. Maybe a little bit expensive but at least the quality is there. Very nice to be so close to the entrance of the park to be able to go to the dunes early especially with young kids at it is getting really hot quickly.

Bourdelet, Jean - 22nd Apr, 2015

Beautiful. And the food was amazing.

Pichard, Stephanie - 17th Apr, 2015

Not really our cup of tea - rather large lodge but it was adequate. Pity we didn\'t have two nights in Sossus Dune Lodge

Barkworth, Clare - 31st Jan, 2015

Well located but a bit crowded. It`s more a resort/hotel than a Lodge!

Pariset, Nicolas - 05th Jan, 2015

Correct. Very good meal.

Morin, Christele - 10th Dec, 2014

this was my parents favourite location - the staff were so friendly and the vista was beautiful

Kerr, Jo - 29th Nov, 2014

An absolutely wonderful setting. Accommodation really special, food and service brilliant. The balloon ride over the dunes was something to always be remembered.

Holzapfel, Cedric - 01st Nov, 2014

Excellent. We were lucky enough to be assigned cabins close to the main building and overlooking the water-hole. The lodge is in the perfect location for a morning visit to Sossusvlei. Very enjoyable evening game drive in the lodge grounds. Fantastic evening buffet with braai.

Coates, Simon - 13th Oct, 2014

2 things wrong receiving us no help with luggage and directions to room. Breakfast very poor lots off complaints for example no filling up of bacon, no one to eggs orders waited 15 minutes for service,etc

Riekie - 28th Sep, 2014

Stood out from other accommodation as most like a `country club,` for better or worse. Comfortable rooms, but also many tourists on tour busses.

Murphy, Bernie - 12th Sep, 2014

The setting of the accommodation was great. The dining facilities and food were great. One night here may have been sufficient.

Dickson, Paul & Helen - 07th Sep, 2014

Great views, especially since we took advice and got the cottages at the edge. But the sewage smell from the nearby campsite was offputting. Amazing buffet with different native meats to choose for dinner. Probably best choice of foods.

Graber, Max - 02nd Sep, 2014

Massive lodge by Namibian standards but we had a room right on the edge (thanks) so it felt still quite calm at the room.

Houlding,alastair - 21st Aug, 2014

good food, nice place

Picariello, Giorgia - 21st Jul, 2014

A really nice place. Very comfortable and the family cabins were ideal for our purposes. The staff were very helpful especially those in the adventure centre. The food was excellent and varied.

Page, Alex - 30th Mar, 2014

Great Buffet (slighly less `classy` than the others)

Bailley, Vivien - 14th Mar, 2014

I really did enjoy staying here. Very comfortable, luxury, good food, friendly staff. Beautiful country, a must for all people travelling in the region.

Griffiths, Peter - 08th Jan, 2014

OK, ac kept breaking down. Food good but next time will stay in the park.

Wilson, Colin - 17th Nov, 2013

was my seccond time there, always a joy

Grandini, Danilo - 08th Nov, 2013

fantastic. Meat and food delicious and our lodge was faboluos

Pervilli, Simona - 01st Nov, 2013

Very nice lodge with fantastic barbecue in the evening

Jaburg, Frank - 27th Oct, 2013

Too touristic, not for me

Trevisan, Silvia - 02nd Oct, 2013

Good experience - great buffet dinner

Cutter, Leslie - 26th Sep, 2013

Great service great food great accommodation

Jenkins, Lisa & Alex - 02nd Sep, 2013


Montalbano, Marco - 02nd Sep, 2013

We loved this exquisite but pricy lodge. Great experience.

Faria, Joao - 15th Aug, 2013

Nice place to visit the dunes. Meals are buffet only but the grill options are superb. The rooms are getting a bit old but the feeling of being in a tent is nice. Very friendly staff.

Salcedo, Alvaro - 30th Jul, 2013

The Sossusvlei Lodge was one of the most unique and interesting lodges that we stayed at during our visit to Namibia. The staff was wonderful and the food was out of this world. I would highly recommend it. It was close to the Namib Desert which is a must see while in Namibia. I loved it!!

Narciso, Bonnie - 27th Jul, 2013

excellent buffet, lodging nice.

Beringhof, Michael - 06th Jun, 2013

Beautiful place and certainly well worth visiting - but the roads are shocking. I would advise anyone to rather fly there. I will next time.

Wilkinson, Colin - 20th May, 2013

Great place. Top notch

Biason, Guglielmo - 15th Jan, 2013

great setting, lovely choice of food and good service

Stephens, Mark - 20th Sep, 2012

Super location & great food. The first night we were there was very windy, so we didn't get much sleep as the tent structure was very noisy. we enjoyed the quad biking, but (unusually for us) did not make use of the pool. However, if we go to Sossusvlei again, we shall try to book even earlier in order to stay in the park, as we had to queue 30 minutes to get in, even with a pre-paid permit, so missed the early morning sun.

Child, Patrick - 04th Sep, 2012

wonderfull place, wonderfull food!!!

Frilli, Deborah - 20th Aug, 2012

beautiful, good location for the dunes and ........a wonderful buffet!!!!!!!

Ognibene, Stefania - 20th Aug, 2012

Very nice place, excellent service, employees, accomodation, an oasis at the desert, very nice food, everything was great at Sossusvlei Lodge.

Grandini, Lorenzo - 05th Aug, 2012

Unreal views and food! Great staff and accomodations. I particularly loved it here. Although there is not any wildlife close by, the accomdations are relaxing and right out on the desert. The tent cabins are very unique and we enjoyed them. There is an obervation tower on site, however it was very dirt and filty (bird scat).

Rateaver, Andrew - 15th Jul, 2012

Very good lodge with very delicious dinner. Friendly staff. Beautiful rooms (tents).

Dams, Luc - 12th Jun, 2012

Great, no problems.

Uys, Barend - 14th Apr, 2012

A splendid place but in retrospect we only needed 2 nights there instead of 3. Outstanding food and service and we liked our tented unit. The larger more hotel-style atmosphere suited us better than the smaller lodges. Had we wished to take trip,though, the range was quite limited.

Shackley, Myra - 23rd Nov, 2011

Excellent service

Oliveira, Diego - 21st Nov, 2011

Wonderful lodge, very good location of the rooms, I think because they work with you .

Kanitzer, Paul - 20th Nov, 2011

Loved it! Staff and facility were extraordinary for the location. Excellent food.

Segerstrom, Dave - 01st Oct, 2011

Well situated at the entrance of the Sossusvlei park. Poor breakfast, but we spent only 1 night, is it usually different ?

Mondot, Jm - 29th Aug, 2011

We loved it there! Did the dune tour through their Adventure centre-was really worth it, hassle-free. Food was really good, stunning kudu steaks again and too many desserts (not sands, the pudding type)!

Smith, Alayne - 24th Aug, 2011

Super and fantastic

Schulze, Dieter - 01st Aug, 2011


Meeder, Rowena - 31st Jul, 2011

Another wonderful resort - exceptional service, beautiful accommodation and good dining (although we are not keen on buffets).

Rowden, Virginia - 11th Jun, 2011

amazing portions at dinner, friendly service

Ahmed, Aasia - 12th May, 2011

A well organised and pleasant place. Good food. Handy to have adventure center in-house and petrol station next door, and actually to be next door to the Sossusvlei park gate.

Van Nielen, Katja - 30th Apr, 2011

exceptional landscape

Bazzigher, Thomas - 28th Apr, 2011

Perfect, perfect, perfect - everything.

Stange, Peter - 12th Apr, 2011

Due to it`s size it is not as personalized as the other places so I felt like we arrived at `resort` with a lot of tourists. At first I was disappointed with the rooms but then they grew on me. I wish the rooms had fridges.

Hackman, Cat - 11th Apr, 2011

Beautiful place! Incredible to find such luxury in the desert, nice restaurant,good food and excellent service.

Varn, Vigdis - 01st Mar, 2011

Nice lodge, separate, private rooms with a wilderness view from the attached patio. Food buffet offered a wide selection, including a large variety of wild game meats, but we especially enjoyed the stir fry. The guide and tour to Sossusvlei was good, but the open vehicle was miserably cold going. Caters to large tours, which somewhat reduces the individual experience.

Sampson, Michael - 12th Oct, 2010

Loved it. Loved the dunes

Royer, Randy - 31st Aug, 2010

We were extremely pleased with this lodge. The location is pretty much unbeatable for the price, unless you're at one of the spots inside the park gate (which are either very expensive, or camping only). As such, we were very happy with our choice. The buffet dinner was gluttonous, with all the grilled meat you could dream of. Rooms were very tasteful and had a safari-chic feel to them. Staff were helpful and friendly, and the location is stunning. They have a well organized trip center which is helpful for excursions in the area if you're into that. Great spot, highly recommended.

Loughran, Joe - 04th Jun, 2010

Nice rooms in separate units. Not too peacefull as they have tour busses staying there. Buffet is quite nice. I recommand the flight over the dune they offer at the Lodge, it's wonderfull.

Fournier, Claud-alain - 04th Jun, 2010

Very nice lodge and had a great time here. The villa was lovely and gave enough space for us and was right next to the pool which was perfect. This place offered the best restaurant/food of all the resorts we stayed -- the dinner buffets were very nice. The excursion to the dunes was awesome and we had an amazing time. We also enjoyed the downtime at the resort pool and the bar area for drinks.

Van Beukering, Jason - 08th Feb, 2010

Good, big and expensive

Kinder, Wolfgang - 03rd Feb, 2010

Nice place, very good restaurant, but a little too expensive when compared to other beautiful places we stayed in.

Meloni, Pierpaolo - 19th Jan, 2010

brillant buffet but receptionists have just not been helpful...

Agra, Beatrice - 03rd Dec, 2009

Surprisingly felt private considering it's a large establishment. good food selection

Bahra, Sanjit - 03rd Dec, 2009

Great food

Scheruga, Martina - 18th Nov, 2009

The Lodge was very good and the buffet was excellent!!!

Ghisalberti, Simona - 09th Nov, 2009

Total praise for this place. Right service, right location, excellent dining. Would go there again

Follows, Peter - 05th Nov, 2009

Absolutely lovely place - wonderful food and great staff.

Connell, Stephanie - 08th Oct, 2009

Recommended, nice dinner and room

Casterman, Herve - 09th Sep, 2009

When we drove up I thought we weren't going to like it at all because it was such a big place, but in fact we had a brilliant tent/room, overlooking the waterhole. The staff were fantastic and apart from mealtimes you wouldn't have realised you were in such a busy place. Good choice but I think room selection is important here, the ones further back from the waterhole wouldn't have made us as happy. Well done.

Mitchener, Nick - 09th Sep, 2009

I love this place. It is my second stay and I recommend it to everybody.

Ostermand, Inge - 06th Aug, 2009

The best one.. wonderful
