We spent just one night here en route farther north in Damaraland. Although the lodge is perfectly situated to view the engravings at nearby Twyfelfontein, we were happy we only spent one night here. The rooms are quite small and hot, without basic amenities like a safe or soap for the shower. When we checked in at the lodge, we... More

We stayed here one night on our tour of Namibia as a stopping off point to see the rock engravings. It's a very lovely hotel set among the rocks and cliffs. The thatch roof architecture fits in very nicely with the natural environment. The rooms are quite spacious but you will need a flashlight to walk to the main restaurant... More

the rooms were clean and tidy, but not super luxurious. the lodge however is a marvel of design and architecture being built into the side of the red mountain - it cleverly blends nicely into the environment making a subtle statement. you hardly know it's there, even when you finally drive into the carpark. To get to reception there is... More

The main lodge is remarkable. I loved the natural boulders being used as floor and ramps. The bar area is very nice and the personnel were friendly. The restaurant has a pretty standard buffet (on par with the other Namibian lodges we stayed at) with good variety, if pretty bland. The rooms are basic, but perfectly adequate. We were there...

We spent 2 nights here on a self-drive holiday in Namibia. The rooms are fine, the large restaurant layout has a great open-sided feel & good views. Nice buffet breakfast and dinner and a comfy bar area which did cake and tea/coffee in the afternoon. Service was friendly and the location is good for the rock art and other outdoor... More

The rooms here are very ordinary - like a Comfort Inn in the USA. But the main building is interestingly designed to blend in with its setting and the view from its lounge and restaurant is stunning. As another reviewer has mentioned we also were not informed that an afternoon tea is provided as part of the hotel fare. We... More

We stayed here for two night and we really enjoyed it. There were a lot of people staying there on our first night but the place was so peaceful I thought we were there only guests. We were greeted nicely with a welcome drink and some information about our accommodation and the local area and then we went of to... More

Reviews on Tripadvisor had made us apprehensive, but we enjoyed our night at the lodge. It started poorly. The welcome was hit and miss. We were not told everything we needed to know, e.g. how to get your cases to your room (you can drive round and drop them off), that there is an astronomer who shows you the night... More

Stayed at this lodge for one night on the way to Etosha and wish we had picked a different place to stay. I know that it's usually all about location, location, location and there probably aren't many places to stay within this long stretch, but this place leaves alot to be desired in spite of the fact that it's a...

Our tour group from New Zealand came here on our way from Swakopmund to Etosha. It is a spectacular hotel in a spectacular location, embedded in the rock at the foot of as red rocky slope. From the main building one looks out over the desert and distant hills. The units are somewhat dated but acceptable. But it is a... More
