Sossusvlei Lodge is a comfortable and welcoming lodge on the edge of the Sossusvlei dunes and right at the entrance to Sesriem. Service and attention to detail is thorough and the chalets have private patios overlooking a floodlit waterhole and the desert and mountains beyond.
Despite its elaborate entrance, Sossuvlei Lodge is a down-to-earth lodge that offers good value and excellent service.
The 44 superior chalets and 6 standard chalets (inter-leading as family rooms) have interesting stretched canvas roofs and inside, an elegant, slight African theme with wooden finishes. Neat and comfortable with tiled floors, rustic and neutral elements to tie in with the desert surrounds and at the back an en-suite bathroom.
Each chalet has a private patio that looks out over a floodlit waterhole and the 44,000 hectares of private desert reserve. The rooms fan out sideways from the main complex, which is a maze of bars, dining areas, terraces, and a large swimming pool area.
On the furthest end, a junior suite, a step up from the rest and in complete privacy. A view out over the endless desert plains. Scenery. Tranquility. Silence.

The private reserve is a fascinating showcase for the ancient living desert of the Namib. Desert-adapted species of animals, birds, plants, insects and reptiles make for an interesting and out of the ordinary nature experience.
