Having the best location and a superb product this place has been poorly managed.The lady who checked us in was not with it at all. She gave us information on the pool and towels and when we told her we did not bring swimming costumes and we would not need towels she went through the same spiel again. I did...

It is worth staying at this Lodge because of its position in the National Park. This means that you can access the Sossusvlei dunes for sunrise and sunset. If you stay outside of the Park you have to wait until it opens and be out before it closes. The Lodge rooms are large and have everything you need - with...

A string of thatched "huts" either side of the main dining and bar area owned by the state chain of lodges. The spacious accommodation huts are beginning to look a little tired but very pleasant nonetheless. Did wonder why given the huge ablutions area why the loo was tucked in its own closet. Not given to claustrophobia this closet did...

This is an expensive accommodation; until recently, NWR website used to describe it as luxurious chalet. The notion of luxury shouldn't even be in the picture. Luxury must be comfortable, otherwise it is not luxury. This place has no air-conditioning at all – anywhere, including the restaurant and lounge. Heat during the day goes up to 38-40C. It was impossible...

We had a lovely stay at Sossus Dune Lodge. It really is essential to stay here to fully experience the beautiful dunes. The service, however, as with most of the government run lodges in Namibia, is poor. They would at least offer to do nice things, but then not follow through, like saying they would help us with our bags...

This is the only place to stay INSIDE the National Park, so if you want to shoot sunrise or sunset you have to stay here (because the gates to the Park close at sunrise and sunset and you will be locked in or out). The huts are beautiful, but they back onto a rock mountain which is a great big...

This place has two advantages (at least) : It's located inside the park so you can start your day an hour BEFORE sunrise. For usual visitors the gates open only at sunrise. Good to experience sunrise at “Dune 45” or even at dead vlei. The second advantage is the “official “ or “National Park agency” employed stuff and concept. People...

Comfortable cabins with your very own balcony. Very private feeling. The pool was very refreshing in the heat of the day. Good food- dinner and breakfast was great! Very clean rooms and wonderful service.

Probably the best place to stay for the Dunes and Deadvlei as it seems to be the only place where you can access both before the park actually opens which is definitely a benefit. The rooms are interesting and pleasant enough with great views but it was extremely hot when we were there so the south facing windows made the...
