We were very impressed with this lodge it was good value for money
We were there on a dinner, bed and breakfast basis
The staff were very friendly and helpful, the food was great and accommodation very comfortable
The only negative of this lodge is the bathroom and entrance in the rooms
Are very hot. We were told that all units were due for renovation in January next year
We would definitely stay here again

Nice place to rest before going to the deathvlei... Excellent food and professional team. We love to flight with David over the desert:)! Love the evening atmosphere and the view from our lodge. I would love to have at breakfast fresh juice...

Very nice lodge. Staff friendly. Lovely atmosphere created in the evenings with the fires etc. Food quality could be slightly better. Also the barman short-changed us. We gave him R200 for 2 waters, and he gave us change for R100. When we questioned him, he immediately gave us the other R100. Could easily have been a mistake but if other guests have had this problem, it could be a recurring pattern so just wanted to make you aware of it.

Dear Diane,
Thank you for your review – Glad you enjoyed the atmosphere and our friendly staff. The barman made an honest mistake – the colours of N$ and ZAR differ and unfortunately can be confused when working with both.
Looking forward to welcome you back!
Best wishes,
The Sossusvlei Lodge Team

We had two great nights after 7 days of camping in the desert. The food is absolutely GREAT with a lot of versatility. The bonus is fresh salads and vegetables! Rooms are good with the aircon as a bonus - specially in March.

If I can make a suggestion -- with this level of service I think it will be a great idea for Taleni africa to invest in a good espresso machine, a trained barista and proper coffee beans. This will match up with the high standard that they are setting in the area.

Thanks for a great stay

A delightful desert lodge very sympathetically created in an environment that is little spoiled by man.
We enjoyed a 3 night stay here. The rooms (luxury tents) were spacious and comfortable. Evening meals under an extraordinary Namibian sky on the terrace were wonderful. Served buffet style with a broad range to satisfy all tastes we ate extremely well while enjoying first class service. Guided visits to the dunes and the search for the desert's "Little Five" were particularly enjoyable.
