These hotel rooms are round tents but they're very quiet and very comfortable. And the view from the front deck is truly impressive - a lovely place to watch the sunset. It is a small hike on the elevated boardwalk to the main buildings and swimming pool but then that is the price you pay for privacy and quiet. The... More

We stayed one night here, and were pleased to be able to use the fact that the lodge is inside the park to get to Sossusvlei itself before sunrise for some amazing sights. The rooms are partly canvas and very spacious, with their own private deck. The pool is good and warmer than others (though still quite chilly). A limited... More

This was probably the best run of the Namibia Wilderness Resort (NWR) properties we experienced during our trip. We were booked us into the honeymoon suite, which was quite lovely, but, as honeymooners want their privacy, it is the last tent, so it is a long walk from the main buildings, about half a km. As with many of the... More

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
