Fabulous!

From the moment we arrived we were made to feel special by Thomas, the owner. The room was superb, the views excellent and our guided trip to Sesriem & Sossusvlei was excellent.

Food was very good, but not quite excellent. Some people may think that a little harsh but when you visit a place like Hoodia where pretty much everything is excellent, but that was our opinion.

Brilliant

What a wonderful location. We were there for our wedding anniversary and they made it very special.

The trip to Sossulvlei was outstanding (I never thought I'd get to the top of the dune but was so pleased that I did!) and finished off with a veritable banquet with sparkling wine set amongst the dunes. We were made to feel very special. The host was very attentive and spoke to us each night we were there to check that things were OK.

Hoodia Desert Lodge review

A wonderful welcome to the beautifully secluded situation of Hoodia. The most breathtaking views.

Accommodation and the main building are superb, as were the meals.

Service excellent, very friendly staff and the guides were the best. I'm sure they will remember almost carrying me up the sand dune!

Hoodia Desert Lodge review

The place was great, and our guide to Sossusvlie, Jonathan, was the best of the entire trip.

The drive to and from the area was exhausting (roads are difficult - and it took most of one day to get there from Bagatelle and one day to get to Swakop). Not much one can do, but we were not prepared for how tiring it could be on those drives - with no place to take a break.

Wonderful stay

I cannot recommend Hoodia Desert Lodge too highly, we had a wonderful stay and we're able to get close to the desert elephants.

Hoodia Desert Lodge review

We were not expected until following day; hence under-staffed a bit of a slow start...it did get better. Irritating mistake over charging on departure. Resolved but at the cost of a phone call from Swokupmund.

Excellent trip to Sossulvlei.

Comfortable accomodation in the wilderness

Hoodia is conveniently located for Sossusvlei in a scenic semi desert region, surrounded by craggy hills. The accommodation is as usual spacious and well appointed in individual attractive looking thatched chalets and the Lodge itself consists of a large thatched partly open Lapa where meals are served.

This was one of the few places with air conditioning (in the chalet for use mainly at night) which in fact was appreciated as this is a very warm part of Namibia! As always wifi and all mod cons provided with welcoming and helpful staff.
