Sossusvlei Lodge Review
If you want to be on the spot when the park gates open at first light, then this hotel right at the Sesriem entrance is the right choice for you. Its decor—in shades of terra-cotta, burnt sienna, and apricot—blends perfectly with the desert surroundings. You may feel like a well-to-do Bedouin in your spacious and luxurious tented room, imaginatively constructed of concrete, ironwork, canvas, and leather. After a hot, dusty day in the desert, it's wonderful to wallow in the swimming pool, which faces the dunes, and later gaze at the dazzling brilliance of the night skies. There's a good restaurant serving light meals.
