The staff and later management (owners) are very friendly and helpful, (specially when your car has a flat and no jack). The rooms are pleasant, but lacks a fridge. the air conditioning smooth and a blessing. The menu lacks a bit, but then I suppose in December it is quiet. Wifi for people that needs to be incontact with other... More

If you find yourself visiting the dunes, this is a good place to stay. It is essential you have a 4 wheel drive to access the dunes. If you have visited the dessert before, this will probably not be the most exciting trip in the world. It is a long (6 hour and bumpy) drive from Windhoek, which is not... More

This was the cheapest accommodation we could find in the area, but very accommodating accommodation. Friendly staff, good food. Rooms are very basic, clean and neat. The establishment is a bit far from Soususvlei about 35km out on the dirt road, but then again nothing is just a 5 minute drive while touring Nambia. Good value for money hightly recommended

We stayed here the night before our visit to Sossusvlei. Very welcoming and friendly hosts. Rooms simple but nice. Nice bar with wifi. It's not amazingly flash but has everything you need and does the job well.

This lodge gives one very good value for your money and is well priced compared to other places at or near Sossusvlei. It is only half an hour from the Sossusvlei dunes and they will pack you a breakfast should you wish to leave early to view the sunrise over the Dunes. Dinner is simple but tasty and the accommodation... More

We stayed over at this property on the way between Sossus Vlei and Luderitz - what a warm welcome - this property is owner run and managed and is really a home away from home. The rooms are clean and very comfortable with each having its own outside private area which is so peaceful. The pool is sparkling, The food... More

Betesda Lodge was better than we expected - the room was large but very dated, however the communal areas are really great. Nice pool, lovely large dining area, great terraces to enjoy a drink. There are no recommended hiking trails and the scenic sundowner drive wasn't available so it was a very quiet day! Friendly service. Dinner both nights was... More
