A lovely open lodge in an absolutely amazing position.We arrived in the heat and the open coolness of the lodge was wonderful. The rooms are adequate and the staff friendly. The buffet meals were very nice with a fair selection but in my opinion too expensive. We were recommended to go to Black Mountain for sun downers but on arrival... More

This was the on,y hotel in the area. It was a good place to stop and break up our drive from Etosha to Swakopmund. The rooms were basic, and clean. The entrance was to the lobby was through an interesting rock formation. The restaurant was ordinary.

The lodge is big and indeed somewhat impersonal, with lots of groups staying here. But every staff member we talked to, was very helpfull and there was not one request that was too much for them. Upon arrival, you have to leave your car at the parking, go to reception for check-in, then you are allowed to drive your car... More

Compared to other lodges in Namibia Twyfelfontein Country Lodge is always only second best. The service, the food quality lack a bit of enthusiasm and knowhow. The room itself was clean, everything worked. Okay for one night, but don't expect a high standard. In the area you will not find any ATM, so bring some cash with you. The lodge... More

The great: the views, the main lodge, the red boulders surrounding the lodge, the staff, the bar to wind down after an amazing day and the activities (short trek, engravings, elephants,....), the baboons... The not so great: small and dirty pool (a little gross), the rooms have nothing to write home about (nothing special), they were hot and stuffy. I... More

The setting is awesome. The restaurant and reception area is stunning. From there it goes down hill. Rooms have restricted windows so they are hot. No air conditioning and only lodge out of five in Namibia where we stayed that did not have wifi. Buffets always give me the creeps in hot climates for issues of food poisinng. Buffet food... More

The location is perfect for an early morning trip to the rock engravings and the location is quite stunning but there is little else to recommend this place. It is big and has a lot of tour groups, the food is buffet style and pretty average and I found the staff to be very offhand almost to the point of... More

This is a stunning place and could be fantastic with a bit more care and training of staff. Rooms were OK though as mentioned before they could do with proper air conditioning as the fan and ceiling fan weren't enough. Our room was clean though and we had a lovely hot shower whenever required. Sitting on our balcony was very... More

The Lodge nestles against the surrounding mountains and is simply stunning to drive in to. We were treated to superb meals and very comfortable accommodations. Great sunrises and sunsets. Thoroughly recommend the excursions to the rock engravings and petroglyphs, Organ Pipes, Burnt Mountains, and the Petrified Forest. We also took the AbaHuab river and were lucky to spend a long...
