Hoodia Desert Lodge

Tented luxury close to Sossusvlei Namibia

Named after the medicinal plant that grows in these parts, Hoodia Desert Lodge has stupendous views of the Tsuachab River in Sossusvlei Namibia and offers stylish tents with aircon and the beautiful vistas over the Namib and mountains beyond.

Plenty of outdoor activities at this dune lodge and the family friendly service attracts travellers back every year to the personalised lodge atmosphere and wonderful amenities. It is not only red dunes and deserts here, but also the astonishing Naukluft mountains that stand like icons over the breath-taking region of sand and space. The main activities involved trips out to the dunes and scenic drives to gawp in awe and take as many creative photos as possible.

When travellers into Africa choose Namibia, it is often the first thing on their bucket list, this Sossusvlei red dune excursion to see the drama of the Namib desert. They want to see Sesriem Canyon, the Naukluft mountains up close on foot, Dune 45, the Sossusvlei at dawn and at dusk, a horse ride or quad bike ride and even an E-bike ride into the region, feeling like it is a never return journey into another world entirely. Hot air ballooning and helicopter flips are also on the cards if that is what blows your hair back.

Find delightful private accommodation at the Hoodia Desert Lodge includes 11 large luxury rooms for couples who want to get away in nature and the bathtubs are ornately decorated and a mixture of the rustic and modern look entirely. They are private chalets, and each one is partly tented with beautiful cooling thatched roofs, covered verandas and delightful outlooks over this majestic and humbling desert landscape. 

Air conditioning, outside showers, and comfy beds make these chalets the place you call home for a few days in this family friendly lodge.  In winter, meet other guests beside the fire in the main lounge and in summer, the swimming pool is the place to be most of the day between activities. 

Activities are varied and this awesome Hoodia Desert Lodge is found on the banks of the Tsauchab River just 20 minutes’ drive from the Sesriem entrance to Sossusvlei. The river is a temporary flowing water way due to the nature of the desert and when it does rain, the water flows through the Sesriem Canyon en route to the Sossusvlei salt pan. Millions of years of natural erosion have caused a dramatic gorge in the landscape of sedimentary rock.

Visitors love the Namib for its red dunes and its wildlife which features incredible species like rare lizards, other reptiles, hyenas, gemsbok and jackals.  There are many insects for those people who are fascinated by these 6-legged critters. We can tailor make your package deal to this astounding country with combo tours to other African destinations including flights!
