Sesriem – Sossusvlei Lodge – 14-09-2014
I’ve arrived to Sesriem around the beginning of the afternoon and while I was looking for an overnight accommodation, I found this beautiful resort called SOSSUSVLEI LODGE.
Went inside and I met Julie, the manager of the structure. She was amazed by my project and she was happy to offer me an overnight in this beautiful place.
Since you enter the big gate passing by the two big statues of ancient warriors, you understand the place is really unique. The color of the whole structure remind you the landscape around and the red sand dune of Sossusvlei. Receptionist are really helpful and kind, speaking a good English.
My room was on the border with the desert! It is basically a big tent with a lot of space, with two big beds inside. A paved floor and a real toilette with hot water shower are giving a lux taste to the structure. The air conditioning system, cool down the high temperature produced by the sun during the day and the view from the veranda is amazing. The desert in front of you and red mountain far away on the background.
Simply beautiful! And at night no noise at all…just maybe some Kudus or Orixs galopping near by the tent!
Well, just amazing. You sit down on the big terrace watching the desert and you eat by candlelight. There is a huge buffet full of everything, a perfect combination between local and international cusine. But the best spot is the barbeque corner. A huge grill corner of 6mt x 1,5mt serving you 9 different type of game meet, beef, pork, lamb, fish and vegetables. This spot is simply amazing!
The cooks are very well prepared and they cook your meat as you like, proposing you the best sauce combination.
BAR & POOL AREA
A nice fresh water pool is the ideal to refresh yourself after a day walking up and down the dunes. Water is clean and at the right temperature and the view is directly on the desert.
So what a better way to drink your beer watching the springboks drinking at the waterhole nearby the hotel!
The place is perfectly integrated with the surrounding environment. The cleaners are working all the time to ensure you the best condition of the place. Safe and well protected by guards day and night. You are in the middle of the desert, but you feel yourself treated like a king by the people working at this beautiful place.
I definitely recommend this place to all the travellers who want to enjoy the beauty of the Sossusvlei Dunes, having all the services and comforts of a 5 stars hotel.
