Lovely Lodge, great restaurant. Let down by the owner/managers arriving and their total lack of control of their own children and animal. They should be grateful for paying guests, even the staff were embarrassed.

Nice place to stay on you way up north. Spacious and clean rooms with comfortable beds and a small veranda. Friendly staff. The restaurant could do with an update. No marmalade for breakfast. I ask for a hard-boiled egg and it came almost raw. And also dinner was not of the standard we were used to in Namibia. But the... More

The rooms are nice and the view beautiful. But apparently there has been a recent change in management - for the worse. In the restaurant, we had to wait one hour to get our drinks and one-and-half hours to get our food. There was no buffet as had been announced. For a soup and a salad, they tried to charge... More

This place could really be a lot better, very badly managed. Clients should not be able to hear the manager shouting at his staff. Hence poorly trained & unhappy staff. There is a large pool,& the rooms are basic, but adequate bathrooms could do with a good clean & update. It has a reasonable setting but just lacks atmosphere, all... More

We camped here for a couple nights. The campsite is basic but has hot showers. The wind picks up in the evening and there is not much shade in the day. They were starting to plant grass which would make the plots better. You are allowed to use the pool in the lodge which looks pretty amazing. Just a shame... More

Opuwo Country Lodge Think of a crowded production-line style Kruger Rest Camp & that pretty much sums up Opuwo Country Lodge. Situated at the top of a hill overlooking a large open valley on one side & the township of Opuwo on the other, it has a commanding aspect. Main lodge is a spacious wood & thatched structure that has... More

Getting to the hotel is an adventure in itself as one has to drive-up a terrible corrugated and bumpy road to the hotel. The hotel is located with lovely views of the distant mountains with a spectacular view of the African sunset. Reception is welcoming with a refreshing drink offered and friendly staff to check you in. The rooms are... More

All in all Opuwo Country Lodge served its purpose. We went to experience a Himba village, and deciding to go off the beaten track and not with the arranged tour through the hotel they kindly arranged a private guide named Festus who was illuminating and amenable. We stayed but one night, Opuwo is an interesting hub of culture and company,... More

The way to get there is only with 4x4 car possible. The signs for the lodge are a desaster, but when you know where it is located, it is very nice. Food is good and the service is good. No complaining apart from how to get there.

That's the only reasonable place in Opuwo but the city is not worth a visit and the lodge too. So don't stop here. The common areas are not bad, the swimming pool is nice, the food is OK (nothing special but not bad). The breakfast is included but not very large. Rooms are very small, dark, with quite a bad...
