Despite its elaborate entrance, Sossuvlei Lodge is a down-to-earth lodge that offers good value and excellent service.
The 44 superior chalets and 6 standard chalets (inter-leading as family rooms) have interesting stretched canvas roofs and inside, an elegant, slight African theme with wooden finishes. Neat and comfortable with tiled floors, rustic and neutral elements to tie in with the desert surrounds and at the back an en-suite bathroom.
Each chalet has a private patio that looks out over a floodlit waterhole and the 44,000 hectares of private desert reserve. The rooms fan out sideways from the main complex, which is a maze of bars, dining areas, terraces, and a large swimming pool area.
On the furthest end, a junior suite, a step up from the rest and in complete privacy. A view out over the endless desert plains. Scenery. Tranquility. Silence.
