Over Sossus Dune Lodge

Our favorite

Een verblijf in het Sossus Dune Lodge heeft zeker zijn voordelen. Doordat de lodge in het park zelf ligt, kunt u al voor zonsopgang op pad en tot na zonsondergang blijven. Op zo'n 4 kilometer van de ingang bij Sesriem liggen de 25 chalets van de lodge. Ze zijn door een houten wandelpad met elkaar en het hoofdgebouw verbonden. De kamers zijn Afrikaans ingericht in de stijl van een traditionele Ovambo-hut met canvas en een rieten dak. De voorzijde van elk chalet is van glas en de veranda heeft een magnifiek uitzicht over de omgeving met de duinen. Het zwembad kan een verfrissende uitwerking hebben nadat u de duinen beklommen heeft. In het restaurant kunt u genieten van een maaltijd met een goed glas wijn. De lodge organiseert tours door het park onder begeleiding van een gids (tegen betaling).

De beroemde Sossusvlei bevindt zich in het Namib Naukluft Park.  De openingstijden zijn vanaf zonsopgang tot een uur na zonsondergang. De Sossusvlei is de plek waar een smalle, over het algemeen droge rivierbedding in tijden van flinke regenval de zanderige vlakte omtovert in een klein meer. De meeste accommodaties in dit gebied bevinden zich in de omgeving van de plaatsen Solitaire en Sesriem, op 30-60 kilometer afstand van de Sossusvlei.

"Great location inside the National Park with excellent views"

   28-03-2017
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 bring me close to it! The pool is NOT a turquoise job but a clever light brown fitting in with the landscape. The location inside the park meant we were in and out of Dead Veil before the sun came over the dunes and the heat arrived. Perhaps most importantly we had the place virtually to ourselves, leaving for a breakfast at the end of the river bed before everyone else arrived. A bit more tricky if you're leaving very early for a hot air balloon ride at 6am. Gate guard had to be woken to exit!

"Luxury - it is NOT"

   28-03-2017
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 to have a snooze during day time because it was way too hot. It was also extremely difficult to sleep at night for the same reason. It was like sitting and sleeping in an oven. You are advised not to open the windows at night because of baboons (not that we saw one) and other creepy crawlies. The fan was useless – all it did was to recirculate the hot air. The food at the restaurant was, at best, mediocre. Dinner was average to bad; breakfast was equally bad. After the first night, we drove to the neighbouring Sesreim Camp for dinner and watched some football. Food was better and the atmosphere was more vibrant. Since Sesreim Camp and Sossus Dune Lodge are inside the park, it is OK to drive after sunset. Unfortunately, this is a government monopoly. If you want to catch sunrise or sunset at Sossusvlei, you have to stay at this lodge as it is the only one inside the national park. (If you are camping, you can stay at Sesreim Camp). The gate to the national park opens at sunrise and closes at sunset. Guests at Sossus Dune Lodge and Sesreim Camp are allowed to drive one hour before sunrise and one hour after sunset, giving you time to get to your destination. (The truth is you need slightly more than one hour to get from the lodge to reach and climb Big Daddy. More like 75-80 minutes). After two nights, we were more than glad to leave this 'luxury' behind.

"A must-stay to get to dunes for sunrise!"

   17-03-2017
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 (they have trolleys) and not show up until we have dragged our bags within 5 feet of the lodge. The chalets are really really lovely and the desert view exquisite, but do expect to get lots of moths & other insects in your room because the chalet is not well sealed. The mosquito net does the trick though! We thoroughly enjoyed laying by the pool mid-day, relaxing in their beautiful main lodge area, and watching the incredible stars at night. You really must stay here if you are coming to Sossusvlei and you will enjoy it! Tip- avoid the honeymoon chalets as they are a very, very long and inconvenient walk from the lodge/pool/exit.

"Benefits but you'll die of heat stroke"

   15-03-2017
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 heat sink and radiates its heat to the huts. It can be a 450m walk from the dining room to your room - with no shelter. The rooms have windows facing WEST but you aren't allowed to open them!!!!!!!! This is because the chacma baboons will break in etc. Consequentially your room is a sauna. The fan provided did nothing but blow the 45 degree heat around. The food tasted fine, although the service was extremely slow. Dinner was a buffet and we saw prawns left out at room temperature (40 degrees!!!) with no ice etc. We avoided them. I still ended up with food poisoning - probably infected here. The swimming pool was the only place you could get any relief but it had no shade. We couldn't sleep at all and it was terrible as there was no escape from the heat. We ended up putting wet hand towels in the freezer (luckily the room had a little fridge/freezer) over our bodies and directed the towels at them. I have never been so hot in my entire life.

"Luxury tent-style cabins, excellent loaction INSIDE the park"

   09-03-2017
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 are friendly and efficient. The Place is not too big and consists of about 24 individual cabins, 20 m apart from each other, arranged along a somewhat lengthy walkway. Some find the walk from the cabin to the central facilities (dining room, reception etc) a bit long, but we enjoyed the privacy. Possible Drawback: the cabin walls are (basically) made of canvas. This guarantees a good ventilation but does not damp noise or spoken words very well. You might hear and be heard by your neighbors. I recommend the very first and last cabin for this reason : only one neighbor. And no one will pass by your cabin (not that this would be interfering really: the walkway is 10 m away from the cabins). Activity (besides the mentioned Dune and Vlei) : Sesriem canyon. Very close to the lodge and and easy and shady walk in the late afternoon. Try it.
