We stayed here for one night having decided that, since we would probably not be coming here again, we would pay the extortionate amount for a room so that we could be at the sand dunes at sunrise. Having been woken at 4.15am and told that we would be leaving promptly at 5.00am we then waited until nearly 5.30 for... More

I agree with all the previous comments, it is the only place to stay. Although we had a 4x4 vehicle, we were sensibly booked on a small group tour. It is the luck of the draw with the guides and like previous comments, ours pointed to Big Daddy and told us to climb it! We also took the wrong route... More

The NWR owned Dune Lodge is the only lodge within the park. This means you can head off to the dunes well before the park gates open and beat the crowds. We took advantage of the group tour from the Lodge which meant we didn't have to drive the final off-road section which takes you to Big Daddy and Dead... More

Eco Lodge. Most beautiful setting in the Sesriem area within the gates of the park, giving you the advantage of reaching the Dunes before sunrise, since the gates won't open till sunrise and from there it's a 45 minute drive. the hotel has no Wifi. Food was good. the outdoor deck for dinner is really great, beautiful sunset spot! The... More

This is one of the best NWR lodges. The "houses" on stilts are comfortable and with fantastic views over the desert. Staff is nice, breakfast and dinner good. Best of all is however the location inside the park. It allows you to take off early and return late. By that you can reach the Sossusvlei area before sunrise, climb the... More

We loved our rooms and the layout of the Sossus Dune Lodge. Here the system of the carpark away from the chalets and the golfcart service worked very well (we did experience other places that didn't). The staff always noted when we arrived. We loved the possibility of self driving all the way to big daddy before sunrise (only possible... More

Rooms are spacious and clean and you have a beautiful view right from your balcony. Dinner was ok, breakfast was really good (they had croissants! yummy!), staff was also nice. What is kind of annoying is that you can't get to the hotel with your own car. You must park some hundred meters away and then take their truck to... More

Its inside the park so you can get to the Dunes before the gates open so its the only place to stay if you want to do sunrise at Deadvlei.

It's funny reading the reviews of this lodge. Clearly, some people appreciate going to an astonishing location and staying in a lovely lodge. Some people are tougher critics. I stayed here 4 days (maybe the only person ever) and I noticed that most people stay one day, as part of a tour where they are constantly on the move. I... More
