We had our annual year end function here. Lodge Manager Rhona really went out of her way to make it an awesome day. We had paintball in the bush, carnivore feeding tours at a huge discount, hand and foot massages which were a big hit, and the food was excellent. Bar service was great and we really had nothing to... More

Naankuse was the first hotel we stayed at after arriving to Namibia in March 2015. We wanted to go straight to Windhoek initially, but the decided to spend the first night closer to the nature. It turned out to be a wise choice, particularly after long travel (a night in economy with kids, a connection in Jburg and another 2-hour... More

Unfortunately I only had time to stay for one night but it was one of the highlights of my trip. Stayed in one of the rooms by the main lodge and enjoyed it very much. Lovely and quiet, nice view, interesting interior design. (A mini bar/fridge would be a nice addition) Nice views and wildlife around. I went on the... More

We treated ourselves to 2 nights at the end of December 2015 and were really looking forward to it and high expectations. On arrival Martha on Reception was very welcoming and managed to let us have a chalet close to the main building due to mobility problems. We were assisted with our luggage from the car, which is parked a... More

I stayed in the volunteering quarters as opposed to the lodge as that it is what I was doing here. Accomodation was a well appointed tent, comfortable and sharing a shower, toilet, washroom unit with volunteers in adjacent tent. Plenty of compulsory activities to do ranging from food prep for the baboons to feeding the carnivores and horseback wildlife counts.... More

Lovely lodge not far from the airport (around 30 min). The rooms are large and clean, but not the typical lodge room in Namibia, e.g. shower in the middle of the room with a sunk-in basin. Nice view into the bush (Baboons come very close sometimes, but they are friendly). Food, staff - everything great. Two weak points which I... More

This was our "treat" on our Adrican holiday, and we were here for three nights. Utter luxury in a conservation setting where wild cats are rehabilitated, and the local San people are given employment opportunities. The food was wonderful, and they catered to our vegetarian needs beautifully. The cheetah walk was definitely a highlight, and the behind the scenes tour... More

Sadly we only stayed one night. What really made our stay were the animals. It started with the tame warthogs outside our room to getting to spend some time with a range of animals, including some amazing cheetah cubs. We also enjoyed hearing about the big cat research project, school and the volunteers. What an inspiring project for both animals... More

Lodge: the room (#1) was lovely, comfortable, and clean. Staff was helpful, and the food was nice. There is a refreshing pool (which could use a few more lounge chairs). If noises in the night and light streaming in are problems, bring ear plugs and eye shades. Many of the employees are San, and the lodge is teaching skills that... More
