Lovely get away destination with breathtaking views, Though a bit far off from the Soussesvlei and deadvlei, Namib desert lodge offers great facilities, relaxing environment. the children had great fun in the pool, I beach ball would have been great to have to add to the water games they played

Lovely lodge style hotel. We could sit on the stoop and watch oryx coming to drink at the waterhole, sandstorms, a fabulous view of the fossilised dunes. Our air-conditioning was the flea in the ointment It didn't work. It was hot. We didn't sleep well.

Our room overlooked the spectacular fossilized dune with antelope grazing within a few feet of us!! Staff were extremely friendly and helpful! The facilities are comfortable, there are also two swimming pools, a gift shop and restaurant on-site.

A little oasis in the midst of the desert, many visiting oryx and springbok, a quite restful place. one hour travel from Sessovelei. Facilities good, with two swimming pools,most welcoming for that dip when the temperatures soar.

It is not a place you should expect too much of. But it is a very good place to spend the night and to relax at the poolside after your desert trip If you book, make sure dinner is included in the rate. There is no alternative restaurant in a 60 km radius and otherways they charge 300 NAD p.P....

Having stayed in 5 of the Gondwana portfolios, Namib Desert Lodge was by far the worst and especially the service from the staff in particular the food and beverage manager who did not seem to share the ethos of the other Gondwana establishments' staff which was service with a smile and being flexible to ones various needs.

We've visited Namib Desert Lodge previously and this time around enjoyed it just as much as the previous time. It is an oasis in the desert! The rooms were clean and attractive, the food excellent and the service also excellent.
