Sadly we only got to spend one night here but it was a lovely relaxing stay. We went on the carnivore feeding tour and got up close to some of Namibia's predators. The food in the restaurant is sublime and served in a great setting. The chalets are spacious and well decorated with a terrace. The staff are extremely helpful... More

This is a beautiful property near Windhoek, as well as the airport. The chalet was beautiful, and very comfortable. Dining was delightful. Staff were wonderful and very helpful. The landscape and wildlife was truly amazing. The wildlife sanctuary does some excellent work too. This was worth a visit in itself.

My partner and I went out to Namibia to work with the wildlife conservation organisation but were deeply disappointed by the experience when we arrived. Although the lodge itself is beautiful and well run, I can not say the same for the wildlife sanctuary. We were extremely upset by some comments made by members of staff publicly around volunteers that... More

This review was written by a disgruntled former employee who was with the company for less than one month in October 2014 and does not accurately depict the experience of Naankuse. We take accusations such as these very seriously however in this case, we would like to respond by assuring all guests and volunteers that N/a’an ku se is an... More

We only had one day off before flying home after running a training workshop. This was a brilliant place to come as you can be sure of seeing large carnivores. The lodge is lovely, the food is great, the rooms are comfortable and look amazing. Helpfully it is only 45 min from the airport and the lodge organised a taxi... More

A long weekend of bushveld bliss! The chalets are aesthetically pleasing - a combination of metal, wood and stone have been used in the construction and interior design. The food was both delicious and varied, and impeccably presented. The staff were all friendly, helpful and most accommodating. Birdlife is abundant, despite the arid terrain. We even spotted a breeding pair... More

I stayed here two nights at the end of my trip and it's very near the Windhoek airport so it is convenient. It is expensive but top quality and some of the money goes to the animal sanctuary. I highly recommend this for anyone who loves animals as you can join in fun activities. The highlight was walking Kiki, the... More

Unfortunately, I arrived at 7pm for a one night stay only. On my way to my cottage I met a tame resident warthog who was very friendly & cute. When I was shown my cottage, I couldn't believe that I only had one night there. The lodge is a very unique combination of rustic and contemporary which is very beautiful.... More

The lodge is intimate and small and lovely inside and the 'stoepie' is perfect in summer. The buildings are unique and brought the outside to the inside of the lodge giving it a rustic earthy feel to it. And the food is very good and tasty and using local produce. The staff so friendly and helpful - felt like home... More
