Hoodia Desert Lodge
Here at NTS we strive to offer personal, attentive service and it is wonderful lodges like Hoodia Desert Lodge that make our jobs that much more rewarding.
Thomas and Henreza are the consummate hosts and their attention and enthusiasm are evident in every detail. From the warm welcome to the personalised recommendations what to do during your stay, they stop at nothing to ensure you have the best possible Sossusvlei experience.
Hoodia Desert Lodge is built on a small outcrop ringed by the Namib-Naukluft Mountains on the banks of the dry riverbed rising from that same spectacular mountain range. You are about 30 minutes’ drive to the entrance of Sossusvlei Park, which means you are far enough away to enjoy total peace and quiet but close enough to Sossusvlei to enjoy a full day among the world’s tallest dunes in the world’s oldest desert.
With just 11 chalets, Hoodia Desert Lodge is intimate and quiet. Each room is beautifully furnished with the unique desert colours and textures as inspiration. An outdoor shower or bath in the desert is something to remember for a long time. A large and shaded verandah encourages long lazy days soaking up the ancient stillness of the Namib Desert and if it all gets too much, you can cool off in the plunge pool at the main lodge.
Dining is an experience in itself with Henreza taking great pride in her fair that extends beyond the meat-heavy traditions of Namibia; the wine list pairs well with the variety of dishes and be sure to ask for an al fresco lunch or dinner to top it all off.
11 twin thatched chalets with private verandahs; en suite bathrooms with additional outdoor shower and tub; air conditioning; fridge; tea/coffee station; mosquito drapes; restaurant; living area with fireplace; sundowner bar; swimming pool and shaded viewing deck
One-of-a-kind Sossusvlei guided day tours; Namib-Naukluft Mountain excursion (on request only); sundowner experience; ballooning, scenic flights, horse trails, quad bike trails and more can be arranged with neighbouring operators.
