Breath taking this lodge is situated at the foot of the fossilised dunes. Wake up to Gemsbok right outside your chalet. Chalets are clean and comfortable with air conditioning to allow you to sleep at night. By day the pools are a fantastic and a welcome reprieve from the heat. Great place to stay whilst exploring Sossusvlei. Dinners and night...

We have used Gondwana before, so chose the Namib Desert Lodge as the final stay of our holiday. The excellent facilities, comfortable room, friendly staff and great food justified our choice. We enjoyed the walks around the lodge and hope that these can be enhanced. We recommend 2-3 nights in this delightful oasis.

The lodge is large so if you are unfortunate you will find yourself with quite a walk from your room to the pools. But the pools do make up for the inconvenience. A hike across the river bed and into the dunes before breakfast is recommended, although the flies can be a bit much. Others have commented about the management...

This is a great value for money lodge. The staff were so very friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean and the farm so beautiful in the middle of the desert abundant with wildlife. The pools are clean and the grounds lovely.

More of a resort type of property with nice rooms. The rooms are spread out so it's a tiny walk to the parking lot with your belongings. Hotel food is decent, pool is nice, AC in rooms work well. Coming from desert quiver camp (amazing) it was most definitely a downgrade. If I had to do it again I'd stay...

The rooms are a bit old but they have generous and fairly private terraces. It is a larger hotel compared to others we stayed in in the area (ie tour groups for example), but the green gardens and the swimming pools are very pleasant to spend a quiet afternoon between long car journeys and early starts; we combined this hotel...

Lovely get away destination with breathtaking views, Though a bit far off from the Soussesvlei and deadvlei, Namib desert lodge offers great facilities, relaxing environment. the children had great fun in the pool, I beach ball would have been great to have to add to the water games they played

Lovely lodge style hotel. We could sit on the stoop and watch oryx coming to drink at the waterhole, sandstorms, a fabulous view of the fossilised dunes. Our air-conditioning was the flea in the ointment It didn't work. It was hot. We didn't sleep well.

Our room overlooked the spectacular fossilized dune with antelope grazing within a few feet of us!! Staff were extremely friendly and helpful! The facilities are comfortable, there are also two swimming pools, a gift shop and restaurant on-site.

A little oasis in the midst of the desert, many visiting oryx and springbok, a quite restful place. one hour travel from Sessovelei. Facilities good, with two swimming pools,most welcoming for that dip when the temperatures soar.
