Betesda Lodge & Camping
Reviewed November 14, 2009

Enjoyed the peace & quiet together with the views from our room as well as from the terrace above the pool (great sunsets!). Simple but nice and clean room with a terrace outside, watching the (pet) springbock and oryx. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful!

During our three weeks travel through all of Namibia this was by far the worst value ever!
This place is definately overpriced! The cleanliness was disappointing, the entire place has no charme whatsoever, even little things don't get fixed. The family-rooms are ridiculous and the staff does not seem to be well organized at all.
The only positive part about the stay was dinner.
This place is definately not to be recommended. There are tons of other places, even closer to Sesriem where one gets a better value than at Betesda.

Our family recently stayed at Betesda lodge whilst on a Peregrine trip through Namibia. The main lodge ( reception, restuarant ) is very charming with its thatched roof. The rooms are more motel style though quite adequate. Our only issue was the lack of air-conditioning !! We spent a sleepless night under our mosquito nets getting up at 5am the next morning to drive to see the sunrise on the dunes of the Sossusvlei. The staff were all very friendly and there is a lovely little swimming pool in which to cool off. We were virtually the only guests staying at the lodge and therefore the resturant choices were limited but what was available was very tasty.
Our girls loved the three cats who appear to rule the reception area.
We were told that the lodge has only recently had electricity connected having used a diesel generator for some time and that they now plan to install a/c units in the rooms !!!
