Our rating: Premium | Property style: Lodge

This lodge is hidden away in the mountains on the banks of the Tsauchab River, just 20-minutes from the access gate to the dunes. A very small property, Hoodia is comprised of just 11 canvas and thatched chalets, all of which are air conditioned with mosquito nets over the bed, shaded private decking areas and stunning views to the surrounding area. Indoor bathrooms are available, but the outdoor shower and bath areas are always hugely popular with guests. At the main part of the lodge there is a lovely swimming pool and shaded deck, a lounge with roaring fireplace for the cool evenings, and a restaurant and bar area offering a variety of delicious meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner. A tour of the dunes at Sossusvlei combined with an afternoon hike to the Sesriem Canyon is the most popular excursion here and a must-do for any visitor. Nature drives, horse trails and guided walks can be arranged around the surrounding nature reserve and extra special activities like taking a hot air balloon or helicopter flight can done for an additional fee.
