Superb 9.0 From 32 reviews

Very Good 8.0
Great stay overall. The lodge is a true oasis and a welcome sanctuary of lush green foliage and birdsong in the middle of the desert. One word of caution - if you need access to the internet, they have an outmoded voucher system that makes using the internet both highly inefficient and costly for guests. Connecting and sharing with family back home was a pain. Aside from our frustration with the internet access, we had an amazing stay! Highly recommend if you are planning to unplug completely.

Exceptional 10.0
Very enjoyable desert visit
Beautiful setting against the desert backdrop, wildlife wandering outside our patio, we really enjoyed our stay here and also enjoyed a couple of the local hikes, it is nice that they have marked trails. The pools are lovely especially after a hot day hiking the dunes. Great service and excellent food, good thing because there is nothing else nearby! There were freshly cooked options at both the breakfast (eg. omelet) and dinner (eg. stir-fry) very much appreciated as I am not a fan of buffet meals. The roads are quite rough and this lodge is a ways outside of Sesriem however that worked well for us as we were heading north to Swakopmund the day after touring the dunes. Highly recommend! My 2 suggestions are (1) fridge in the room and (2) a la carte dinner options.

Namib Desert Lodge.
The hotel is quite remote, not bad. Just no a la carte dinner, only a very very large buffet which I was not up for. No other eating establishments within 49-50 miles. Rooms and gardens are very clean and comfortable. However the sink’s cold water faucet did not work. Also the only electrical outlet in the room wasn’t working (fixed). A nice pace to stay on the northern end around Solitaire.
