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.
"Review focused on the dining"
We only used the Lodge for dinners and breakfasts, as we were staying at the Desert Quiver Camp and the catering aspects of the stay were done via the lodge. So we had two dinners and two breakfasts. Dinner is done as a buffet, with entrees being self service, mains being cooked at various bbq stations and desserts again via the self service buffet. The quality and selection at the buffet (both entrÃ©e and desserts) was excellent. The main course selections consisted of game, fish and vegetable bbq grills and had good variety. Breakfast was buffet style with a grilling and egg station for hot food. You can also have a take away breakfast ordered if you are going on an early start to visit the dunes. We had the picnic hamper option - and this was fantastic - but it helps if you have a fridge in your 4x4 to keep the butter, yoghurt and milk cool!
"The perfect place in the desert"
What a great location. Perfect location to visit Dune 45 and Deadvlei. Lovely pool, good rooms with airconditioning, buffet dinner very good. I have only one critical remark: the sunbeds around the pool. Who is heaven's name decided that iron beds are suitable in a desert with a temperature in the afternoon of 39 degrees? Please change the beds! Touching them in the afternoon gives you burns!
"Helicopter flight was one of the best experiences of my life"
We didn't stay at Sossusvlei Lodge, but organised a helicopter flight through the Adventure Centre. Wow! We did a 45 minute flight with Yandre. Absolutely fantastic. The check-in staff were fast and efficient, Yandre was an exceptionally experienced pilot, and responsive to our needs as photographers. Absolutely fantastic and I would recommend it to anyone.
"African hospitality at its best"
Sheer luxury in the desert. Beautifully appointed rooms, perfect for in the desert! Evening buffets exceptional, made extra special as they're outdoors - add wonderful African flavor to the whole experience. Lovely sitting out in the desert sand enjoying sundowners. Special gateway to the Sossusvlei dunes! Would definitely return!
Best part of my stay was time with the guide, Simon. I had four excursions with him. Each outing, he was passionate, articulate, and pleasant to be with. The rest of the staff were not quite as helpful, particularly the activities office. When asked to provide help in air transportation, they simply gave a list of vendors, and neglected to mention their airstrip was closed. This created a fair amount of consternation, blame, and problems for my travel. They also didn't inform that the property is under renovation. Seems to cater to larger groups, without much interest in supporting the independent traveler.
