We stayed at Naankuse in early May 2014, while on a panafrican air safari (from Kenya to Namibia and back). It was the perfect place to be, just outside Windhoek. We had a fabulous time, with even warthogs coming into the dining area to "greet" us. The management went out of their way to accommodate our unusual needs. They even... More

My wife and I were lucky enough to stay here for three nights at the end of 4 weeks of travel through Southern Africa. Naankuse can be anything you want it to be and if you take the time to look at some reviews and the web site you will not be disappointed. The little cottages are modern and as... More

I admit, walking with a cheetah was pretty incredible but this was not my favorite stop along my 30 day 11 camp safari. I don't know exactly how to explain the way this place made me feel. It is a fenced in "sanctuary" with domesticated warthogs and a cheetah you can walk with. There are many other animals on the... More

The bathroom isin the middle of your room and it is great. The beds are very good. We did a few tours, the full carnivore tour, that is nice to see how... More

We were volunteering at the sanctuary and really needed some quality time in a nice room with constant hot water and other "luxury's". The Lodge certainly provided them. Each room is totally separate from the next, we were in the last one and felt like we were out in the bush alone, it was great! You could hear lions roar... More

We visited the lodge for a weekend in April with our kids. The lodge is really child friendly with regards to the meals and also in the main area they have a play area with coloring books and a few toys. Our kids are age 8 and 3, so you do have to book private activities and some we didn't... More

This lodge rescues the live of animals in need. Moreover the lodge employees and empowers disadvantaged people. Those people and the volunteers deliver a great quality. We did the game drive at the lodge which was wonderful. We had a diner as well. The food is the best available in Windhoek.

We stayed one night at this lodge for our last day in Namibia. The lodge is absolutely amazing with large houses spread across the enormous reserve. The design of the restaurant and houses is great. The service is top notch and the food was excellent. Highly recommended if you want to experiment something a bit different around Windhoek.

What a lovely place is this. I had booked my short trip to N/a an ku se about one month before the actual date of travel, direct with the lodge and was impressed with the super-efficient reply. 10 minutes after submitting my booking I already had a confirmation with a list of all activities that were available in case I...

Naankuse is a top class lodge, with fantastic staff who provided excellent service. The food was delicious, especially the cupcakes on the buffet day. The rooms were elegantly designed and equipped with all you could need. Great fast wifi in the main lodge made working more efficient. Thoroughly enjoyed my stay.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
N/a'an ku se Lodge and Wildlife Sanctuary offers two types of accommodation: one for lodge guests at our luxury charity lodge, and one for volunteers looking to help with conservation. For our lodge guests, the N/a'an ku se Lodge is the ONLY charity lodge in Namibia, with all profits going back to the foundation's conservation and human aid programs. The Lodge offers six individual luxury chalets and five private holiday homes set in the middle of a 3,200ha wildlife reserve in the African Savannah. It is located only 30 minutes away from the airport and therefore makes it the ideal place to stay at the beginning or the end of your journey through Namibia. To view animals, our lodge guests have access to our carnivore tours and game drives, led by our local San Bushmen. For our volunteers, N/a'an ku se's Wildlife Conservation Volunteer Program is located at the Wildlife Sanctuary, and offers volunteers the rare and exciting opportunity to work closely with and actively participate in the conservation of African wildlife. Volunteers can stay from 2 weeks to 3 months and will have the opportunity to care for our orphaned and injured wildlife including a number of lions, leopards, cheetahs, wild dogs, caracals and baboons, etc. Both experiences will leave you with great memories of Namibia while aiding in our conservation efforts which better the lives of the local San Bushmen and our animals. ... more   less
