Lovely stay at Hoodia

Great place to stay - one of best places we stayed, great facilities, room was lovely and staff were welcoming and all knew what was going on.

Excellent day trip to dunes, very memorable, guide was brilliant and couldn't have asked for more.

Definitely recommend a couple of nights here.

Hoodia Desert Lodge review

Great site if not as well planned as some others.

Two slight drawbacks--lack of game and the cabins were less beautiful than some others, bit they had interesting outside shower/bath & also had a great pool.

Great trip to Sossusvlei with really excellent guide

Brilliant peace and quiet

Very welcoming. Lovely main building and accommodation. Long approach so in a very quiet desert setting.

Good position for visiting Sossosvlei. Only downside was that we could not get on their own guided tours of Sossosvlei because they were full.

Advise people to book this in advance as it makes a big difference to your appreciation of the dunes.

comfortable base for Sossuvlei

We were the only guests and the managers were away. The staff were very young friendly and helpful and we had an experienced guide who took us to Sossuvlei. Whilst you get to the Park as the gate opens it does still mean that you have another 20/30 mins until you get to the main dunes. It might have been good to stay in the reserve.

The position of Hoodia is very attractive and we saw some amazing thunderstorms, rainbows and had great views of the mountains. The hut was comfortable but as we had the place to ourselves the main terrace overlooking the riverbed was our main focus.

Lovely lodge in the desert

A stylish lodge in a beautiful location. We took the guided trip to Sossusvlei which was amazing.

Our charming guide was very knowledgeable about the unusual wildlife and holding the web of a white lady spider that he had dug up from the sand was incredible. A visit to the largest sand dunes in the world and the dead vlei is not to be missed.

Great day in the dunes at Hoodia

We had three great days at Hoodia lodge, we did the all day trip to Sossusvlei which was excellent, again scenery from another planet but don't let the guide take you to a shortcut for Big Daddy, yes it is shorter but it is on virgin sand and very steep, consequently we only made it part way up. The guide provided an excellent lunch under the shade of a tree including hot water in a canvas "hand basin" and wine chilled in ice!!!

We also did the sundowner, another great experience with drinks and snacks and lanterns made from candles in paper bags - very atmospheric.

Hoodia was also a great place to relax with a very attentive staff, lovely swimming pool, great food and the owner, Thomas, who couldn't do enough for you

Hoodia Desert Lodge review

Thomas and Henrietta run this extraordinary place. Can't do enough for one. What a nice couple 9 out of 10. (nothing is perfect!!)

The sunset Honeymoon (???) sundowners was fun. The sand dune trip , coffee break, and lunch in the sticks was just such fun. Well done Tom et al.
