The chalets are over 600 sq feet with a huge veranda out front where you can watch the balloons take off in the early morning over Sossusvlei. Loved the open concept shower area where the water trickled down between the floor boards while you looked out the window onto the desert. A French press in each room for all those... More

Staying here enables you to access the dunes before sunrise and before the national park opens. It really is worth getting up at 4a.m. Our guide Sammy was excellent. Arriving at the lodge we received a warm welcome, with information on trips etc. The lodges are very well appointed, with views of the dunes in the distance. The beds are... More

Being inside the national park, this is the best place to stay if you want to be at the dunes and vleis for sunset and sunrise. Service can vary from excellent to average. For example, the shuttle service from the carpark to the hotel was excellent and our welcome was first-class. Service in the restaurant was hit and miss. You... More

This is a great place to stay if visiting Sossusvlei as it's actually in the national park. The individual huts/chalets are really nice, approaching 5 star, and have great views out over the desert. There's a nice pool and bar. The whole lodge very tastefully done and really fits into the landscape. The menu isn't great, but dinner and breakfast... More

Being inside the park at this beautiful lodge afforded sunset access to the biggest and most exciting dunes, beautiful sunsets, and comfortable accomodations. The room itself was simply beautiful, with stunning views and very comfortable couches and bed. My guide was wonderful. He really went out of his way to make sure I was exposed to the full range of... More

Visiting this desert and the large dunes was the main reason for our trip to Namibia and we weren't disappointed. Our chalet was lovely with a great view of the surrounding desert. The balcony was a nice spot to sit with a glass of wine to watch the sun set. Loved the bathroom, & shower. Our meals were very nice... More

We flew in from Swakopmund over the dunes and saw this interesting set of 'cabins' nestled against the mountain as we came in for our landing. We were picked up and driven to the Lodge early enough before sunset that we could enjoy the beauty of the setting as well as the lodge itself. This was the place we saw... More

We had a great couple of nights in this lodge. There are 24 individual huts which radiate out from the restaurant area. Very well apportioned. We were very cold at night so remember your winter pajamas! As the lodge is the only accomodation within the national park you must stay here if you want to see the sunrise over the... More

The rooms are very good and spacious. As most other reviewers state being able to get to dunes (very) early is a bonus. The food was very good and maybe just the presentation on the plate stopped it from being excellent. Occasional reviewers remark about the service but to be fair we found it excellent. The restaurant staff were friendly... More

On our last visit to Namibia 7 years ago, we stayed just outside the dunes and my husband was determined we would stay inside this time. It certainly is well worth it as there is no restriction on entry and exit time and we could access the dunes early in the morning and until the sun had completely set. We... More
