Great Lodge outside Sossusvlei

We really liked this lodge.

We were given a very warm welcome, the main lodge was very comfortable and our room was great, especially the outside shower! All the food was delicious, and the staff were all very friendly and helpful.

Beautiful setting

We loved this place! The all day activity was great, our guide was good not excellent. We asked for a wake up call and never got one so were running late. The guide told the staff we were lying? Not a big deal but surprising. By the end of the day, the guide started to smile and laugh but it really took some effort.
The folks we shared a vehicle with really made our stay! So glad we did not have a private tour!
The food was good
The lodge was impeccable
The service was attentive and amazing despite no obvious manager around.
Our guide did an AWESOME job finding a white dancing lady spider and scorpion :). He made us a beautiful lunch too.

Outstanding

It all started with a terrific welcome from Enos and never went downhill. The staff were outstanding in their attention to detail and were particularly helpful when we discovered we had a puncture (must have happened on the drive in to the Lodge). Staff were dispatched "to help" and then proceeded to remove the punctured wheel and fit the spare.

The chalet, the restaurant and the swimming pool could not be faulted.

Staying here was one of the highlights of our holiday. There is a lovely atmosphere around the place.

The kitchen staff were extremely attentive to my food intolerances.

Luxurious

Beautiful setting, great private chalets, well appointed, the best food we had on the trip, very attentive service.

Large, dramatic, theatrical sitting area

The lounge area is large and dramatic, with plenty of seating areas and lavishly furnished, with many beautiful books on Namibia.

The individual tables in the spacious dining area are set in a semi-circle near to large picture windows. There is a deck outside where you can have drinks and watch the sun set, with a pool area one level below that. The manager was very attentive and the service was good.

The guide we had was excellent and very knowledgeable.

We stayed at the lodge for access to Sossusvlei and did not see, or expect to see, animals there.

Great dune experience in a comfortable lodge

Excellent friendly staff. Very welcoming and very good food.

The camp is some way from the Sossusvlei area, but is certainly very comfortable.

Hoodia Desert Lodge review

Hoodia has a great location and is fairly modern.

We received an extensive welcome by the owner and he clearly takes great pride in his lodge. He spent time with every guest, greeted people back from their excursions and made sure service was to his standards.

The views are extensive and just sitting by our room looking over the dry river valley was enjoyable in itself. The lodge is well laid out and the food was good.

A small point, but being able to drive your vehicle right up to your room made everything very easy.

Hoodia Desert lodge. Excellent and friendly

We thought this lodge was the most professional of all the lodges we stayed at on this trip. It was also very friendly with great food and a comfortable room in a great location.

We enjoyed a romantic sunset sun downer trip on day of arrival.

We also took the lodges Sossusvlei excursion which managed to keep us away from the crowds. An example of this is we were arriving at dead vlei as the crowds were leaving.
