Stayed here for 2 nights as part of a group of 16 from UK. Our room facing the mountain was quite dark and most of the rooms are a long walk from the main building i.e. bar and restaurant. There is a problem with the hot water as it is not always available even though we were told that the... More

The lodge is beautifully situated in front of a mountain but still pretty much in the middle of nowhere. The highlight is the bar and restaurant area. We had amazing buffet dinner which also included delicious meat such as crocodile. Some of the rooms are a bit of a walk from the main building but we did not find this... More

Okay be warned its a fair drive from anywhere, so make sure you have planned your snacks and lunch and drinks. The drive is spectacular and you can stop at several land marks along the way. The lodge is tucked up into the rocky outcrop and it is a very welcome sight to see as you approach it. The main... More

We had just come from a lodge where we were the only guests so we really loved how busy this lodge was! The main feature is definitely the restaurant/bar area. Very good buffet dinner. The rooms were fine, nothing fancy but overall it was a good place to stay. There really isn’t much to do around here so one night... More

The main lodge bar and dining room are spectacular! The thatched roofed lodge set into the rocks with even their own petroglyphs is lovely, the rooms are nowhere you want to hang out, the pool is small, the bottom covered in moss and nothing special either. The staff was not particular friendly or helpful, especially those in the bar and... More

On an Explore trip with a group so everything was pre arranged. Spectacular setting at the base of red cliffs/rocks. The lodge was unexpected in terms of main building, dramatic with its interesting thatched roof where the restaurant and bar is located. The rooms are spread quite far so expect a walk to the restaurant but this is not a... More

Why on earth we stayed only one night here, I just cannot fathom. This was one of the high points in our trip to Namibia this year.The only very minor criticism would be concerning parking of vehicles very far from our room. One could off load at a reasonable distance but then the slog to get the forgotten binoculars and... More

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 were camping nearby in the Mowani Campsite and organised a elephant game drive with these guys. Turned up at 7 am , met Carlos the manager who apologise profusely for the delay we were about to endure and laid on a free breakfast. his manner and service was a benchmark only others could hope to aspire to. The surrounds... More
