“Wow! Wow! Wow!”
We just spent two weeks in Namibia at five lodges. Nothing else compared with our stay at this lodge for three nights.
When we arrived, there was nothing to make us suspect how good it would be. Nice friendly but very quiet staff oriented us.
First we saw the rooms. Very nicely maintained. Each one isolated and oh so quiet. Air conditioning worked real well and was not turned off when we were gone. They gave us passwords for our two laptops and our iphone. To my incredible surprise, there was a strong signal in our room, about the furthest from reception. Food. Just amazing. And get this, unlike most other lunches they happily served a hot breakfast at 5:30 a.m. so we could make it into the park when it opened at 6:15 about 12 km from the lodge. The quality of the food was just amazing. And the presentation. Incredible! Each night a big fire was made in a fire pit. And fires were placed near our table for the cold in the evening. Coming from Seattle, we had to have them move those fires back.  The staff are so friendly. Genuinely so friendly. We can not thank them enough for our wonderful time. 


“Beautiful lodge, great Lions!”
a beautiful lodge in a private reserve next to Etosha, the accommodations are in individual chalets which are set well apart leaving a good sense of being out in the bush. Stunning furnishings and very comfortable and spacious. The staff are extremely welcoming, Elizabeth was a great host and Alfred was an amazing guide on our sundowner drive. He spotted lions I swear it took me five minutes to realise how close they were looking really hard! The dinner was delicious, even if the sauce a little salty for my tastes. Overall a great stay and well worth it.
