I visited N/a'an ku se for the day to do the Ancient Skills tour as well as the carnivore feeding tour. The guide Balon, was very nice and soft spoken. We drove to the bushmen who were not too far away from the loge. They had a replica village/ hut situation where we met them and then from there we... More

We enjoyed two days here. The place is simply amazing!! The cabins are large and very clean!! The restaurant is outstanding and everything about this place is a great experience! We spent the first afternoon on a safari to visit all corners of the sanctuary. Very nice indeed!! The highlight was next morning and the morning walk with Kiki (Cheetah).... More

Pure Bliss !! A few cuts above the rest. This was such a pleasant stay I want to go back there. We stayed in the villa Oom Jan. Beautifull and very modern architecture. Everything you need inside with a stoep looking out on the waterhole with so many animals visiting it looks like paradise. The restaurant service and food is... More

Get up close and very personal with the biggest cats and other wildlife in Southern Africa. We did the late evening feeding tour, which was excelent. Cheetahs, Wild dogs, Leopards, Baboons and of course a pair of Lions. All these animals were rescued and could not be rehabilitated, so they are kept in large pens with enough room to roam,... More

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
