Just back from 3.5 spectacular weeks in Africa (Namibia Botswana and Zambia) with group of friends and most of us voted Huab Lodge as our number one of the trip for many different reasons - we all loved the gorgeous and environmentally friendly rooms, the stunning enormous dining and lounge room where we enjoyed our delicious meals every day (with...

Excellent facilities, excellent staff and hosts; you feel and are treated as valued family friends. Owners are your hosts. They are very knowledgeable and enjoy helping you soak it up. Wildlife is somewhat limited compared to parks like Etosha due to agricultural (cattle) operations on surrounding lands. Rugged country with lots of appeal, unpolluted skies, wonderful sunrises and sunsets. Stay... More

We looked really forward to stay here but we couldn't enjoy it, not at all. All the meals (seriously ALL of them) have to be taken together with all guests, managers and owners. Breakfast at 8:00 in the morning - sorry we were on holiday and not in a youth hostel. Dinner at 19:00 again all together. The owner introduced... More

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

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
