It was COLD! It was also awesome. My first visit to Huab Lodge & Bush Spa Owned by Jan and Suzie who are the masters at the art of hospitality. Great setting amongst the mountains of Damara Land with fauna and flora that just relaxes you. I really liked the setting of ONE dinner table for all guests and Jan... More

I've just return from my fourth stay at Huab Lodge. I keep returning because it's that good. Family owned and operated by Jan and Suzi van der Reep they have won the best lodge in Namibia for over ten years. I lead safaris to Namibia Zambia and Botswana and always design the safari around a stay at Huab Lodge. Highly... More

Huab Lodge was one of the highlights of a long road trip. It is remote but the road is not bad, and is beautifully integrated into the bush and koppies. The rooms are spacious and really beautifully appointed with the fluffiest towels ever and great privacy and views. The staff are gracious and dinner is at a communal table with... More

Huab Lodge is truly wonderful. It's a long dusty drive on dirt roads to get there, but so well worth it. Jan and Suzi and the rest of their team are all wonderful hosts and their little corner of Damaraland is truly magical. We stayed for three nights and are so glad we did - other guests were in and...

We loved this lodge. Yes it might be a long dusty road to reach it but that's part of its charm. The owners were away when we arrived but we were warmly welcomed by Jaap and shown to our spacious and comfortable bungalow with its large shady terrace - and enclosed bathroom!!. We had the good fortune to be the... More

It was oveall a pleasant place to spend a couple of days. the spring was nice, the food was good, and the accomodation great. Jan was a wonderful host. The rooms may have been a bit dated but they were still very peasant and it was the only time I slept on a decent pillow in the whole of Africa.... More

My wife and I spent 3 days and nights here in late September and really fell in love with the lodge, its wonderful staff, spacious and well-appointed bungalows, delicious meals and the surroundings. Yes, it's well off the beaten path to get here but your rewards for all that driving are self-evident the moment you step out of your vehicle.... More

We stayed here for several days in late 2005, and absolutely loved it. Very friendly and we appreciated the tremendous knowledge of Jan about local wildlife. Guided walks were superb and we had a close-up of fighting desert elephants one night No it's not got the big animal density of Etosha, but it's a different sort of place.

Reception was quite alright and then they clean your dusty car after quite a long travel to get there - in a not overly exciting environment. Omaruru region and Namib desert are by far more interesting. The bungalows are very much outdated - nothing more to say here. Ok, the hot water spring is quite interesting and comfortable, but again,... More
