Superb 9.2 From 47 reviews

Exceptional 10.0
Excellent value. Staff were very helpful. Please note that although I haven’t given the highest grades for cleanliness or condition, I have given grades that are the next highest level and one has to recognize that this is due to the location being alongside a desert/dune area where sand blows in the wind and thus it would be virtually impossible to expect a higher score in such circumstances. I really enjoyed this stay; you are on the edge of the desert and feel at one with the surroundings,

Good location
Great location, very close to the park entrance (4 km). Food options were great but you’ll need to drive to the other resort for their restaurant which is close to park entrance.

Enjoyed it
Great self catering option in the area. Good service, clean place, air conditioning in the desert. Really enjoyed the braii and that you could pre-order food to be delivered to your room for cooking. Made meals perfect. Only improvement I could say is to bridge the beds together a little better. We stayed at several other places that joined the two mattresses much more seamlessly. At least have one duvet/linens when joining them for couples.

Camp with beautiful views of the mountains
Nice self catering accommodation with newly built units. The camp is near the entrance to the park and it is linked to the nearby Sossusvley Lodge. There is a small pool in the complex and each unit has a small kitchen with sufficient utensils to prepare BBQ meals. The uncooked food can be ordered at good prices from a list available at reception. The internet works only in the bar and pool area. The view from the units is fantastic and they are well spaced. We enjoyed our stay at this camp and the staff was very courteous
