we used this hotel for a stopover. To our surprise it was almost fully booked, as there was a conference taking place. This gave no trouble at all though. The staff was very welcoming and friendly, although they were a bit overworked because there were so many guests. The rooms were ok, without any frills or personal style. The pool... More

For years my husband and I have been travelling extensively through Namibia. On this trip, we were travelling from the eastern border to the western coast of Namibia. The Auob Lodge is situated perfectly for this route. Upon arrival we were greeted by friendly staff who offered us a cold beverage. We found the staff to be well trained, helpful... More

The rooms are clean and neat, big swimming pool. However, tickets need to be purchased for dinner and breakfast, staff is a bit unskilled. The room rate is too high for the quality provided. All in all a proper over-night stay.

Auob Lodge was a good place to stay since we would have not been able to make it to the Kalahari Transfrontier on time. When we walked in to the dark reception we were greeted by (who we think) was a staff member. Later on after we had settled in our room the manager approached me and was friendly. The... More

Remarkable What a Remarkable experience!!!! Auob Lodge is situated near the small town of Gochas. When driving to Auob lodge your surrounding is astonishing, from dry rouged landscapes to green trees along the river bend. Farm houses to see as well. Arriving at Auob Lodge you are welcomed warmly and friendly. You can enjoy a cool drink at the indoor... More

What we liked about the lodge: - The cold pool; great for getting into on a hot day - The night drive to see the sunset in the kalahari, which is quite beautiful - The cleanliness of the rooms - The restaurant: the food was very good and reasonably priced. Despite there being just 1 dish for dinner, a vegetarian... More

This quaint little resort is located in a really beautiful location. What the place lacks in modern conveniences it makes up for with the friendly staff and great food. In the desert country every stop is appreciated just for being there. If you stay here you will love it!

Best part of the stay was the game drive, which we almost missed! I found the lodge to be clean and comfortable. I stayed on the second floor of the new part of the lodge. It's much better than the old lodge. Food was good.

The gamedrive was good, the food was very special (we ate eland). The singing and dancing (after diner) by the Nama-orphans was very charming. Never seen it before. The manager supports a project to educate these (aids-orphans). A lot of animals. regards schliek
