Lodge rooms were large and very clean with air con. Food was superb. Views amazing. Pool very welcome. Free wifi. Only thing missing would be complimentary shampoo etc. An hours drive from Sossulvei but everyone comes by car so no problem. Very chilled and relaxing 3 nights stay.

Despite the fantastic landscape at Namib Naukluft Lodge, I would have preferred to stay closer to Sossusvlei. You might choose differently, however. First the good news. The Namib Naukluft Lodge, set on a private reserve, is beautifully situated to admire stunning views of this vast desert plain and its romantic rocky outcroppings. The main lodge, with rooms starkly arranged in... More

We stayed here for 2 nights during our 2 1/2 week Namibia adventure. We found the staff very friendly and accommodating. The room was quiet and comfortable and, while not lavish, it was quite nice and suited us perfectly. We found the food to be very good. Each room has a nice porch/patio at the rear & it was a...

We stayed at the Namib Naukluft Lodges and were not very impressed. The rooms are old and poorly lit with almost no wall plugs, one of the lamps were broken and the bed was full of sand. The food was ok but not the best and the staff were not dressed in uniform that served us for dinner. It did... More

This lodge is reasonably close to Solitaire, but quite a trek to Sossusvlei. It is quite simple but still a nice place to stay. The BBQ night is great, but the other food is a bit average. Check out the animal watching bunker by the waterhole. Lots of fun - you can take a drink down there and sit and... More

At least a 2-hour drive to/from Sossusvlei. Free WiFi in the reception and bar area, and if you're in Room #1 nearest to the reception, you should be able to tap into it as well. Rooms are nowhere luxurious but functional, with lovely hot showers. Boma and Potjie meals, standard of most lodges/camps, were good with traditional game and good... More

Probably the most tranquil relaxing place we have ever stayed. If you want to get away from it all then this is the one. Take the sundowner trip out to the marble mountain if you can , have a beer or two and watch the sun go down, perfect. We shall be back !

What a great place this is. We stayed for two nights, using the lodge as a gateway to Sossussvlei. The lodge is nestled at the foot of a rocky hill on the edge of the National Park of the same name, and has about sixteen bungalows, each with a view of the vast Namibian countryside. You can sit outside your... More

This lodge has beautifully appointed rooms overlooking the desert. It's about 100km from Sossuvlei so to be at the Nat Parks gate at sunrise, you need to leave the lodge at least an hour earlier. It was worthwhile. The dunes were amazing. The lodge served a cereal and tea snack before we left. The bedrooms and en suite bathrooms are... More
