See our selecton of sample itineraries which feature Hoodia Desert Lodge

On the banks of the Tsauchab River, Hoodia Desert Lodge is surrounded by majestic mountains and the nearby Sossusvlei dunes and pans.

Boasting only eleven luxurious thatched chalets, the lodge aims to offer guests ultimate privacy and each chalet comes with an open air shower, a generous bath and a private deck. The décor combines exposed natural materials with a light and airy colour scheme and contemporary furnishings.

The main building has a shaded outside lounge deck, a lounge area with fireplace, an elegant bar to relax in the evenings and a restaurant where the chefs deliver delicious international and local dishes.

There's an abundance of things to do in and around the lodge, including relaxing by the pool and admiring the dramatic scenery. However the highlight of any stay has to be a Sossusvlei tour, taking you through the famous red dunes and contrasting white salt pans, and complete with sun downers on the way back to the lodge. Additionally guests can also opt to enjoy a helicopter flight over the desert, a horse riding trip, or a quad bike excursion.

Why We Love It

The contrasting mountain and river scenery seen from the lodge is almost as impressive as the contrasting colours in the nearby Sossusvlei.
