Location here is excellent, facing the bay and the flamingos. Staff are friendly and welcoming. We had the big room upstairs with a balcony, also with views out to the water. Excellent breakfast here with white tablecloth. Need to check the pipe upstairs for sewer gas (maybe a one-off occurance), but that was a minor thing. Architecturally interesting, with the... More

Rooms are extremely comfortable and luxuriously decorated. Our room had a freestanding bath and incredible views of the lagoon from our terrace. The breakfast room was elegant and the variety of foods and attention to detail was astonishing. There is a beautiful courtyard with swimming pool and a lawn terrace from which to watch the sun set over the lagoon

Egumbo Lodge was by far one of the most unexpected and joyfull experience in our Namibian trip. It combines the interiors of a real english style cottage with true african architecture in an amazing scenario at ( litterally) two steps away from a natural lagoon full of flamingoes. The hospitality is extremely accurate and warm.

A perfect lodge on Millionaires Row overlooking the lagoon. Stayed here a few times now, and every time the arrangements are perfect as requested. Pool is a little on the chilly side, but a welcome break from the strong sun somedays. Stayed in a few of the rooms, but Warwick (no.1) is my favourite, and a good bottle of SA... More

I recently stayed for a week at this lodge on a bussiness trip to Walvis Bay. It is located in a very quiet, peaceful side of the lagoon and bay. There are great views of the lagoon from here. The guest house rooms are all large and spacious and neatly decorated. The beds are big and comfortable.The showers are great... More

We have had a negative, or rather, no experience at all with Egumbo: e-mailed request to reserve a room for our client, high-ranking Namibian politician. It was on 07 October 2014, a month ago, we are still expecting their reaction. There have been numerous reminder messages resent, all we have in response is a automatic reading confirmations. Ignoring requests is... More

Egumbo Lodge is, although you may not see it from the outside, decorated beautifully. It has dark woods and tasteful accessories. It gives a warm and colonial feeling. We were in a room in the front of the house (first floor) and although we were on the road, it really didn't bother us. The bed linnens were clean and crisp,... More

What a great Lodge. After all the dust of Sossusvlei some civilization. It is a beautiful house at the seafront. We had the room in front of the lodge on the second floor. Enormous room with an open bathroom. From the tub you had a view on thousands of Flamingo's in the bay. They sit just in front of the... More

The Egumbo Lodge is for sure not the best Lodge we stayed during our 2 weeks trip through Namibia, but you have to compare it with what’s nearby. We didn’t see any lodge that looked as good as this one in the city, especially when you consider the price. We went kayaking in the bay and when the bus picked... More
