“Had dinner here”
Reviewed 8 April 2014

We stayed at the Sossus Oasis Campsite, but went for dinner here one night.
The service was excellent, all staff were helpful, friendly and welcoming even though we were campers.
The set-up and decor of the lodge are fantastic.

Dinner was a buffet and it was truly divine. There was everything from soup, salads, cold and warm starters, stir fries, a huge array of meats all cooked to your own wishes, side dishes and a massive desert section as well.

It was a special evening and we dined like kings!

There are around 40 individual tented lodges, each with a bedroom, bathroom and tiny deck. The views are not great as the lodges are located in rows, but we didn't spend much time in the our room anyway. Food was the best we ate on our trip - plenty of choice in a buffet style dinner and breakfast, with barbecue on demand as well. The location is what everyone goes for - right outside the gate to the national park. One nice thing is that, unlike other locations, you only have to stop to pay on the way out of the park so you can race the sunrise to a photogenic dune without stopping. You won't necessarily be treated as someone special, but the service is good and the staff are friendly.

Lovely place in what appears to be the middle of nowhere, but isn't quite. Very comfortable and really good food. The staff were friendly and helpful especially the staff in the activities office when our balloon ride was cancelled due to the weather. Their alternative, the helicopter, was really good and well worth it. A good place to stay.

after an incredibly scenic drive from Windhoek, Soussusvlei Lodge was a welcome oasis in the middle of the desert.
Travelling with 2 small boys (8 &12) we had adjoining rooms, these were large and comfortable. the view overlooking the plains were amazing, ostrich & impala grazing, with the mountains in the distant gave a view of Namibia's beauty.
Coffee and refreshments are available 24 - 7 in the reception area, breakfast and dinners were great with a huge selection.
trying food from zebra to warthog or staying safe with pasta and chicken, the choices and quality were great.
It is as close as you can get to deadvlei (one of the main attractions of the area) which is still a 65km drive.
don't miss out on serisium canyon, or the town of serisium whilst there.

Tip - when travelling in July dress warm for the early morning drive.

Outstanding and loved this place. 2 nights was just enough for the activities in the area, don't spend any less time if you can.

Room Tip: ask for one away from the reception area (or family rooms) as these have the best views
