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.
"I am only reviewing the Buffet!"
I cannot comment on the hotel itself because we stayed at their Desert Camp and only came for supper. They have changed the concept from a few years ago when only guests from their own establishments could dine there and it was more exclusive and special. Now it is open to everyone and the food reflects this. There is a huge amount of tourists( mainly German with a big number of French too) which need to be fed. The buffet was huge but the dishes were bland and predictable. The game meats were tough and sinewy , the lamb chops were still raw and we will never go back. To top it all off, I picked up a stomach bug which completely ruined my balloon ride the next morning. If possible, rather order the Braai Basket and make your own dinner. At R 275 per person for the buffet, it is simply not worth it and feels like a tourist rip-off.
Had a great time when we stayed here for 2 nights. Incredible location and the staff are really helpful. Beautiful tented rooms overlooking the vast landscape with animals regularly walking past. The view from the pool and restaurant is amazing - we saw lots of animals and had a great time. Food is fantasitc - they cook all the meat and seafood to order on a hot plate for dinner and you overlook the watering hole. Definitely reccommend.
We stayed here for a couple of nights on our Namibia tour. This is a good lodge. The rooms are semi-tented lodges, well equipped including air conditioning (easiest to take a look at the gallery on their website to get a feel for the layout). It is quite cosy to lay in your bed and hear the wind blowing through the canvas. In the morning you can open up the canvas or sit on your veranda, look out onto the semi desert and watch the animals roaming around. Dinner was excellent. Seated outside, it is a buffet style arrangement where you can pick the meats that you want and they are cooked to order in front of you. And every evening you get a wonderful sunset...
A nice hotel even though it's quite big. The tented bungalows are quite nice as you can hear the wind blowing over your tent in the night. The bathroom looks kind of out dated so they should try to refurbish it as the hotel itself has a nice look. Dinner and breakfast, both buffet, has a broad assortment even though breakfast is standard. Dinner is nice as you're sitting outside and they're offering a good barbecue. Sundowner drive is not worth it as you literally don't see any animals. At least we didn't. We did a helicopter ride over the desert which was nice but nothing spectacular if the pilot hadn't done some cool moves on the way back. The pool is pretty small, offering around 10 sun beds, but you're able to relax. If you're lucky you can see an Oryx in front of the pool.
Checked in yesterday. Beautiful location. Our tented cabin directly overlooks the plains in the back. Sat for awhile last evening watching the wildlife from our deck. Left early this morning to catch the morning light at Sossusvlei. Spectacular! Will definitely be one of the highlights of our trip.
