Lovely oasis close to Mariental. The service is excellent, the staff extremely friendly and helpful. The food is wonderful. Kids are well catered for. Beautiful set up, rooms comfortable. A complete revamp is planned for within the next few months.

Incredible sunset game drive, with a Windhoek Lager in your hand, your feet digging into the red dunes and the sun's embrace leaving behind colourful traces - who can complain? Best breakfast buffet I've seen in Namibia at any accommodation, fantastic dinner and absolutely great service!!! When we got back to our room overlooking the velt, there were 2 eland... More

Anib was our first stop after arrival in Windhoek. It is not too far away from Windhoek. Time to relax and enjoy. Rooms are convenient, well located around the pool. Wifi is available at the bar.

Concrete cabins, in an interior harmony of army yellow green paint: clean and functional, not more. Restaurant is the saddest place you can imagine, and food is OK. Evening frame drive cancelled, replaced with a group mid afternoon tour... No breakfast before 7am (in Namibia the travellers schedules are everywhere starting at 6 am) Even with the Gondwana card discount,... More

Good day, We enjoyed the stay, me specially the quiet atmosphere, long walks, time to read! We had our 45th wedding anniversary, present from our son. The game drive was very nice and the guide informative and pleasant. Always ready to stop or wait until photos are made. The dinner was fabulous, the breakfast a little bit poor. The staff... More

We spent a night there en route from springbok to Windhoek. It's a convenient stop but the online booking portal does not appear to work with last minute bookings. Rates vary so it's difficult to know what's happening. Staff are very pleasant. Breakfast is very basic.

Rooms were nice and comfortable. What I liked was the friendly feeling of the place and its staff. Dinner was well presented and tasty. We had to leave early the next morning, so the kitchen staff packed us a breakfast bag. Enough food for breakfast and lunch! Kettle with tea coffee in room.

the Lodge has a beautiful setting and the dinner was great. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful! Rooms are comfortable enough but I though it was expensive if you are paying the full price. As a local we receive a large discount which I thought was in line with what the accommodation should cost.

We had a good stay at Kalahari Anib Lodge - nice setup. Good food and very friendly staff. We felt that the bathroom is much to small - there is no space to put your vanity case and clothing nor are there enough rails to hang the towels (4 people in a room).
