I spent 3 weeks here in November and was lucky enough to get the second story room by the driveway. It has a small balcony with comfortable chairs to sit out and have a coffee in the morning. the room was large and comfortable. the staff was attentive and friendly. the breakfast was very good .

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

We found this lodge via StayToday meaning we got a very good price. We had a look at the web-page and had high expectations. Luxury lodge at a bargain price. Wow! Unfortunately this is a beautiful lodge making the same mistakes (and more) as most Namibian lodges. They spend a fortune on the building, the rooms and the interior of... More

We stayed there for 2 nights in the beginning of April and had a very nice experience. The room was big and nicely decorated. The atmosphere was right and the service was excellent. I had asked the kitchen if they could prepare a birthday cake for my wife the second evening as we were going to eat at the lodge.... More
