We were very impressed by how beautifully this Lodge had been designed. Lovely rooms, but the main Lodge was especially beautiful. Sadly, I can't recall the name of the guide who took us to Sossusvlei but he was terrific - friendly and FULL of wonderful information. Hats off!

I took a group to Hoodia in january for celebrating the last 3 days of a Namibia / Botswana selfdriving tour. The idea was to settle down a bit and to relax. It was a good choice. Hoodia has a very convinient size of 11 chalets so everything stays small, privat and personal. While staying there you will be welcomed...

We stayed here in September for 2 nights and had a fantastic time. The rooms are really spacious with comfortable beds, a good size bathroom with walk in shower and toilet cubicle, but also and outside shower with views of the mountains. We were in room 12, so a bit of a walk to the main building for breakfast or...

My wife, son and I spent two nights here and we all thoroughly enjoyed everything. The accomodation, location, service and especially the food were all FANTASTIC! If you're going to Sossusvlei, this is definitely the place to stay. The only thing that could have been better was their WiFi. It is only available in the lobby and is pretty slow.

A delightful desert camp in what feels like the middle of nowhere.The camp is within a short drive (20 minutes) of Sesriem and about 40 minutes from Soltaire. The room was perfect for the location and the main area, food and staff were all fantastic. The trip to Sossusvlei wonderful, the climb to the top of the Big Papa was...

Really enjoyed 3 nights stay at Hoodia, which gave us a chance to enjoy not only the local activities and dunes but some time to take in the tranquility of Hoodias location. The food at Hoodia was very good and the staff really feeling like a fun family always keen to hear about your day when they welcomed you back....

Hoodia Desert Lodge is a great stay near Sossusvlei, catering to people who prefer a smaller, personal lodge. We stayed one night on our way down through Namibia from Caprivi, Etosha and Swakopmund and down to Sendelingsdrift. We drove into Sossusvlei in the afternoon and then out, and on to Hoodia for an overnight stop. It is, as they state...

lovely situation and beautiful rooms. Very clean. Beautiful restaurant and swimming pool. We stayed 2 nights and the staff were extremely professional and very friendly at the same time. The dinners and breakfast were lovely. Having a flashlight to get back to our lodge was marvellous because no lights spoiled the night sky.

We were pre booked for Hoodia due to our agent insisting it was the best place to visit the dunes. However, as we had two 4x4 vehicles we were going to drive ourselves. I decided to email the lodge concerning their services and got an excellent response detailing what they would do for us. We decided to book their day...
