Sossusvilei Lodge and Resort. Guests stay there are usually purchase the all inclusive package with room and meals. The desert is very hot in the day time and the room A/C may not help because the bed rooms are made or tents and zipper. The tents make a lot of noise when the desert wind brows. The service at the...

Our rooms (129,130 & 131) looked directly out to the desert. Stunning. Rooms are comfortable with air conditioning. Food was buffet style. Good choice of salads & meats. Just make sure the meat is properly grilled before eating it.

We stayed in several Namibian lodges and hotels during our holiday but this was the best. The accommodation was good and safari themed, the food was well prepared but the scenery and night skies were superb. Then we went to see the sand dunes, that really was an experience of a life time.

We only used the Lodge for dinners and breakfasts, as we were staying at the Desert Quiver Camp and the catering aspects of the stay were done via the lodge. So we had two dinners and two breakfasts.

What a great location. Perfect location to visit Dune 45 and Deadvlei. Lovely pool, good rooms with airconditioning, buffet dinner very good. I have only one critical remark: the sunbeds around the pool. Who is heaven's name decided that iron beds are suitable in a desert with a temperature in the afternoon of 39 degrees? Please change the beds! Touching...

Dear Evert, Thank you for your fantastic rating and review. Happy to hear you enjoyed our location, pool, aircon rooms and dinner buffet. Iron is the only material that lasts - plastic, etc disintegrate quick - but we do have cushions to cover the beds. We are looking forward to welcome you back! Best wishes, The Sossusvlei Lodge Team

We didn't stay at Sossusvlei Lodge, but organised a helicopter flight through the Adventure Centre. Wow! We did a 45 minute flight with Yandre. Absolutely fantastic. The check-in staff were fast and efficient, Yandre was an exceptionally experienced pilot, and responsive to our needs as photographers. Absolutely fantastic and I would recommend it to anyone.

Sheer luxury in the desert. Beautifully appointed rooms, perfect for in the desert! Evening buffets exceptional, made extra special as they're outdoors - add wonderful African flavor to the whole experience. Lovely sitting out in the desert sand enjoying sundowners. Special gateway to the Sossusvlei dunes! Would definitely return!

Best part of my stay was time with the guide, Simon. I had four excursions with him. Each outing, he was passionate, articulate, and pleasant to be with. The rest of the staff were not quite as helpful, particularly the activities office. When asked to provide help in air transportation, they simply gave a list of vendors, and neglected to...
