Sossusvlei Desert Lodge Review
The Sossusvlei Desert Lodge was previously called the Sossusvlei Mountain Lodge, and this is one of the most luxurious places to stay in the area. The lodge consists of ten suites which are constructed using glass and stone in a fascinating design, and each suite offers air conditioning and a private attached bath. Each suite also offers a private telescope and an outside shower, for a romantic bathing experience under the star filled skies. This is one of the most popular Namibia lodges, and reservations may go very quickly. It may be necessary to book your reservation some time before your visit is planned, to ensure that you get a suite at the Sossusvlei Desert Lodge.
The location of the Sossusvlei Desert Lodge is also another plus for this lodging choice. It is situated very close to the Sossusvlei dunes for exquisite views and easy access. The lodge is open all year long although the most popular time to visit is from the beginning of May until the end of September, because these are the cooler months when the day temperatures are more comfortable. Full board is part of the cost of your stay at the Sossusvlei Desert Lodge, and the meals offered are plentiful, delicious, and high quality.
The power at the Sossusvlei Desert Lodge involves the use of a generator, so there are no unexpected outages, and the area offers a very low risk of dangerous animal attacks and no malaria risk. The service is excellent, and the past visitors have given the lodge very high marks for cleanliness and comfort. There is a more luxurious feel than you will get by staying at the Sossusvlei Wilderness Camp, and the nearby desert offers beautiful views and numerous exploration activities. Tours and expeditions of the Namib Desert can be arranged by the staff at the lodge for very reasonable costs. If you are visiting the area than this lodge is a good place to stay while here if you want fabulous accommodations, dining, and service.
