My wife, son and I spent two nights here and we all thoroughly enjoyed everything. The accomodation, location, service and especially the food were all FANTASTIC! If you're going to Sossusvlei, this is definitely the place to stay. The only thing that could have been better was their WiFi. It is only available in the lobby and is pretty slow.

Hoodia Desert Lodge is a great stay near Sossusvlei, catering to people who prefer a smaller, personal lodge. We stayed one night on our way down through Namibia from Caprivi, Etosha and Swakopmund and down to Sendelingsdrift. We drove into Sossusvlei in the afternoon and then out, and on to Hoodia for an overnight stop. It is, as they state...

lovely situation and beautiful rooms. Very clean. Beautiful restaurant and swimming pool. We stayed 2 nights and the staff were extremely professional and very friendly at the same time. The dinners and breakfast were lovely. Having a flashlight to get back to our lodge was marvellous because no lights spoiled the night sky.

We were pre booked for Hoodia due to our agent insisting it was the best place to visit the dunes. However, as we had two 4x4 vehicles we were going to drive ourselves. I decided to email the lodge concerning their services and got an excellent response detailing what they would do for us. We decided to book their day...

As we arrived, Thomas the manager was already waiting for us and we felt like coming home. The bungalow is very nice although a little bit dark during night, but very warm athmosphere. Pool is very clean and gives a refreshment after a day out in the desert. We warmly can recommend you to book the 1 day tour to...
