Long way (30-40 mins on poor road) from the sossulvei gate (a further hour from Sossulvei itself), this lodge offers basic accomodation in separate lodges. Place feels under invested in and rooms lack privacy (bamboo blinds on glass door transparent when back lit by window or bedroom light. Shower and toilets are separated from main bedroom by a half wall and curtain, which is not appealing for those sharing rooms (even if you know each other well). Food is a set menu and probably the best thing about this lodge, though on our first night they thought a double helping of side vegetables was a suitable vegetarian alternative to a steak dinner, despite being notified in advance and on our early arrival. Early start to visit the dunes is catered for with guests being offered a breakfast pack to take with them.

Approx 45-60 mins from the entrance to Sossusvlei, south of Solitaire on the C19. Individual lodges facing out on open countryside and the nearby Tsarisberge hills. Dinner of butternut soup, filled pancakes, steak, and chocolate pudding was very welcome after a good drive - along with the essential Windhock beer. Very quiet and peaceful will guarantee a good nights sleep. Travelling late July makes for a cold evening so make sure you have something warm although the restaurant does have 2 nice wood burning fires going to help. Blankets and duvets are provided with 2 beds pushed together under a single mosquito net canopy. Decided to join Jan for his guided tour of Sossusvlei - well worth the N$900 - though prepare for an early start (5:30 am) and the cold (1c though not sure how typical that is). Jan's local knowledge and his ability to avoid the obvious crowds helped greatly. Coffee and cake mid afternoon was very pleasant. you get an incredible view of the stars at night in this region - zero light pollution and a great view of the milky way.

Room Tip: All the chalets appeared to face open countryside - our room 5 had a view across open savannah towards the nearby hills.

Room was comfortable, and clean. We were give a warm and friendly welcome to the lodge. The hot water is provided by a fireplace in back of each chalet.... warning, the water comes out BOILING HOT - someone could easily get burned by the water or by touching the faucet (but it was great to have hot water!). Food was good and when we missed breakfast due to leaving early for our balloon flight a very substantial (and good!) boxed breakfast was provided for us. The sundowner drive is recommended. The credit card machine wasn't working and so we unexpectedly had to pay in cash, which could have been awkward if we hadn't had enough cash on us - they need to work on getting a reliable credit card processor. The chalets are made of native stone....It was so much nicer staying at a small lodge that felt a part of the environment rather than some pretentious overly-lavish property. I would recommend this accommodation.

Little Sossus Lodge is about half an hour from the main park gate that leads to the iconic Sossusvlei and it's amazing formation of sand dunes. The lodge is made up of 20 neat little stone built chalets with comfy beds; simple ensuite bathrooms; and patios looking into the desert plains. It is essentially a family farm homestead. The three sons and dad run the guiding and front of house while mum oversees the catering and housekeeping. The food is superb - some of the best we have eaten in Namibia and the rooms were spotlessly clean. The public areas were homely - and very 'African'. Staff were helpful, warm and friendly. We enjoyed a sundowner drive across the farm and into the mountains and saw abundant birdlife and a few interesting mammals. The following day we did the excursion to Sossusvlei. There is a small swimming pool at the lodge to cool down although we were the only ones staying there when we visited in June so we had the whole place to ourselves and felt spoiled by the peace and tranquility. This is a lovely little friendly place to stay and a perfect base for visiting Sossusvlei.....

My husband and I stayed at Little Sossus Lodge for 2 nights of our honeymoon. We were lodged there as part of our safari tour by another company but we went for the sossusvlei dune tour with them. On a positive note, the rooms were comfortable and the dinners served were pretty good. However, we were rather shocked that there was no lunch provided at the lodge at 1:30pm after we had returned from a long tour at the dunes in the morning and were only given a meagre sandwich, some peanuts and a fruit for "brunch". In addition, we were also slightly disappointed that a prior promise from the staff to keep the bar open for the World Cup screenings was not honored, and the owner was not in the least apologetic about it. The service standards can definitely be improved for a much more pleasant stay.
