During end of December we drove past the seemingly nice lodge. I met the manager at that stage and she was very help full and friendly. We decided to enjoy a drink. However, we decided to visit the lodge with some friends as a treat... What a shock it was.. Management changed to a few overweight people, who sit around... More

The service experienced was great, right from the time we arrived to the time we departed. The staff were friendly and smiled all the time. The rooms were cozy and comfortable with all the necessary amenities. Perhaps, as a personal preference, even if it is a Country Lodge....there should be an option for a television shoudl a guest require one....especially... More

We camped here for two nights. Facilities were fine but campsite wasn't as near to the lodge as others we stayed at. Didn't eat at the restaurant so can't comment on food quality. They have a huge ice lolly freezer by reception with hardly anything in it - what a shame! They charged us 60 for WiFi for the two... More

This is a remote lodge in northern Namibia. It is not what one would normally rate as a four star hotel, but for where it is (and to be honest there is not much choice) this is a real gem. Sitting high up on the hill with a commanding view over the Kaoko veld is an impressive thatched lodge with... More

My wife and I were on a two week long drive of Namibia along its cruel back roads that wind through the beautiful and strange landscape. Our stop in the north was at Opuwo Country Lodge, where we spent two nights, January 23rd and the 24th of 2015. Getting to the lodge is an effort. The way is well marked,... More

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
