Accommodation here is superb, a large comfortable room with large bathroom and outdoor chairs overlooking the waterhole. The main lodge has a large deck which is perfect for viewing wildlife at the waterhole. One could spend the whole time here, however the game drives are excellent and cheetah walk , a once in a life time experience. The food was... More

Great lodge with a magnificent view over a large waterhole which is visited by all animals throughout the day and night. Saw all the antelope, zebra, elephant, hyena and wild dog, aardvark and giraffe amongst others visiting to drink. Situated in beautiful gardens and big area to run/ walk as exercise. Great birdlife and scenery. Rooms well appointed in lodge... More

A Safari trip to Namibia with a three day stay in Erindi was a trip of a life time. The Lodge was well maintained, very comfortable and the luxury room we had were beyond expectations. The all inclusive 2 trips a day with food, beverage and drinks made the experience amazing. However, you go to Namibia for the animals, and... More

The staff were very welcoming and friendly. We saw animals we had never seen on other bush holidays. Sitting on the deck watching aardvark ( a long awaited first), wild dog, hyena, jackal, hippos and crocs is great. The red Namibian sun sets behind the water hole. There is a self guided walk of about 3.3 K's which means you... More

Erindi was our last stop on the way back to Windhoek. After several days at Etosha we expected to maybe get disappointed regarding wildlife but it turned out to rather be the opposite. The atmosphere at the viewing deck was great and we could enjoy a drink while our kids were mesmerized by the hippos, the crocodiles and others we... More

Notwithstanding some rather horrible weather we had a great time at Erindi. The staff were wonderful. Nikky, you were a star! The facilities are excellent. Well thought out, well constructed, and comfortable. All the challets front on the waterhole and we spent many an hour watching game slaking their thirst, safe from the cold and wind behind the glass doors.... More

Although this is a private game reserve, you get a pretty authentic experience. I'll admit that some of the animals are put in a habitat you're not used to seeing them, but still. Admiring a rino, elephant, wild dog up close, or seeing a tiger snake crawl aling your leg just meters away. It just offers a wild experience. The... More

Everyone needs to experience being spoilt a bit... OK, a lot! Far off the beaten track in the middle of Namibia somewhere but really well worth it. Rooms are awesome, luxurious, well laid out, and an absolute pleasure to stay in. Stayed in the Superior rooms right on the waterhole and just absolutely enjoyed it. Food was good, organization good,... More

My husband and I loved our time here and wished we stayed longer! We saw giraffes and all sorts of animals just driving to the lodge. As soon as we got there we hoped on the afternoon/evening game drive which was awesome! We were so close to mange of the large animals including lions and elephants. Or room backed on... More
