Good base for a visit to Sossusvlei sand dunes

The location is only recommendable for an overnight on the way to or from Sossusvlei sand dunes (approx. 70 km away). Hotel itself is fine and good for relaxation after a dusty trip in the desert. read hotel review

Nice lodge which we recommend. In the evening you can on a sundowner drive participate. This trip was very nice. Right next to the lodge there is a water hole, which with a bit of luck you can watch the animals. read hotel review

The lodge is located at the foot of the petrified forest dunes. You a friendly welcome and immediately felt comfortable. Partly german speaking staff, that also in tricky situations helps (blowout)! The bungalows are very nice and in the ample range one finds a great many animals. Less than 2 hours you need to sossusvlai. A nice stay with african flair. read hotel review

Thanks wibke!

    The surrounding area is very nice and one can undertake trips to the dunes or naukluft mountains. The hotel offers beside the sundowner drive still other activities (including. Hikes).

The namib desert lodge consists of many individual buildings (about 30) and is built like a village. In every house are two rooms with a private veranda and in the main building there was the reception with a gift shop and restaurant. The trees in the area are described, so that one knew, what tree it is. The area was very clean. Internet is only available in the lobby with the reception possible, code for that one received at the reception and it is tnichts to pay. Connection worked but only between 7:00 and 7:30 p. m. We ... were here for 2 nights and we met throughout german-speaking people. We had half board. read hotel review

    The namib desert lodge is close to the petrified forest dunes. The dunes near the hotel in the evening illuminated. The hotel is located about 300 kilometer from windhuk and about 100 kilometer away from sossusvlei. From the hotel there is a drive to the sunset above the petrified forest dunes and the drive through the countryside inclusive sunset with gin tonic and crackers took 2.5 hours. There is also 2 hiking away from the hotel and was 1.5 kilometer and 3 kilometer. also a watering place is next to the hotel and we saw many oryxantilopen.

    The rooms are about 4 times 4 metres, thus not very large. The bathroom about 4 times 1 meter. The decor is simple and the furnishings are dark. There is no tv, a fan, but also a kettle for tea or coffee. There is also a laundry service. There is also a safety deposit box and air conditioning. On the veranda there is a table and chairs and the dunes see (not all buildings). Everything was clean.

    We had half board. There was buffet and in the evening the soup and the dessert served and the main courses and the salads you could from the buffet to take. It was a good quality and the choice of food was moderate. The kitchen style was typical of the country (lots of meat, but very good) and it was also clean. The rates we found cheap, for example tea €1, -, toast 3.40 euro. The water is from the management drinkable!
