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.
"Another amazing place to stay in Namib Desert"
Located in the Namib Desert, this lodge is the closest place to stay is you want to explore famous Red Dunes of Namibia. Peach color sand desert is very picturesque. Luxury cottages are privately located. Food is very good.
"Great location right outside the park"
All the activities you would wish to do in Sossusvlei start out here. Although we were unable to get rooms here we ended up coming both days that we were in Sossusvlei. They have a nice Cafe Timlin which serves great sandwiches and the Hansa draft beer was excellent after a hot hike. There is a nice swimming pool. Coffee and cookies in the lobby. Also WIfi which is a bit slow anywhere in Namibia. We took the fixed wing as well as the Balloon Ride from here. This would be an ideal location for a visit to the Namib Desert, but book in advance !!
"Nice property well situated to visiting the Dunes"
It is important to note that I am ranking all the hotels we stayed at (7) based upon where these hotels are (e.g., Ranking them on Southern African standards not European or America...so a 4 star hotel in Southern Africa is not necessarily a 4 star hotel in Chicago. I did this to be fair and give my readers proper perspective)..okay on to the review.... We stayed here for two nights on an 18 day trip through Southern Africa. Nice, property sitting on the edge of the Namib desert entrance. It might be one of the closest to the park that I saw. The rooms were well organized, clean and up to USA/Europe standards. The night we arrived we did a game drive and the hotel and our tour operator surprised us with champagne and light snacks out in the Namib desert...really excellent event! Pros: 1. Location is excellent - close to park entrance makes the morning drive that much easier; 2. Dinner is outstanding. The made to order grills and stir fry station are great and the best we had in Southern Africa. The buffet that accompanies the grill stations are well stocked with different variety of appetizers, soups, sides, deserts, etc. 3. The rooms are decent. clean, large and well organized (large rooms, NO TVs or phones though). 4. Bathroom is very large and well laid out. 5. Situated right next to a watering hole and we had different animals come up at night and hang out. Very nice. 6. They have a pool (though unheated) that sits right by the watering hole. 7. Staff were friendly and helpful. Cons: 1. No hot water. We were there for two days and our room had no hot water. We were so busy that I didn't have time to get management to look at it. In fairness, all the other rooms we had experienced no issues so it may have just been our room. 2. WIfi is awful...seriously awful. It is not available in the rooms at all and they said it was available at the bar and reception. I went to the bar and despite repeated attempts I had no success in two days of being able to log on. 3. No TVs or phones in room...I don't personally care as I didn't miss TV at all but some people might so I am letting you know. All in all, the property is nice, well laid out and in a great location. I would recommend this property.
"How do I describe perfection"
What an amazing experience, we had 2 nights at Sossusvlei Lodge and they were exceptional. From the moment we arrived we were looked after to perfection. Our lodge (131) was perfect, it was quiet and looked out over the reserve, there is nothing quite like looking out from your lodge and the only thing you can see ahead of you is open spaces and animals (if you are lucky). The dinners are a particularly special treat, the candelight at all the tables and the level of service are to be experienced. As a vegetarian I was worried about having food to eat but I left each night having eaten far too much delicious food! My partner loves his meat and tried several different varieties and said they were all great. We did an early morning half day tour out to Sossusvlei itself through the lodge and it was fantastic, I can't recommend it highly enough. We also did a sundowner tour on the lodge property and it was very special to watch the sun set while drinking and eating nibblies prepared for us. If only everyone could visit Sossusvlei, bot the Lodge and the park, it is a very special place, one I will hold in my heart for the rest of my days.
"Very good lunch buffet!"
We didn`t stay here, we just ate lunch here for the two days we stayed in Sossusvlei. But from what i saw a very well run lodge with great staff and of course beautiful surroundings. I can highly recommend the food at least, the lunch buffet was plentyful, very good selection, and tasted very good! Also, free wi-fi is a plus!
