I agree with other reviewers' experience with the friendly staff and the enjoyable sundowner. It's the room facilities that let me down. I stayed in room 3 and I believe rooms 1 to 4 should be avoided, their only advantage being proximity to the restaurant and the reception. What annoys me most is the lack of a proper door to... More

Staff are friendly in this beautiful idyllic oasis in the Kalahari desert. Food is excellent but there is no choice. As a vegetarian I was given an alternative meal. Bed was very comfortable but the room had no soap for the basin, no shampoo and no hair dryer. There was a socket suitable for English and continental adapters. So good... More

Campsites each have own covered area with ablution and washing up facilities. One of the best sites we have camped at for a while. Beautiful location and friendly staff. Would definitely go there again.

Friendly staff and comfortable, clean rooms. We were offered a room after an administrative glitch with the campsite booking. Although the target market seems to be large international tour groups, we enjoyed our stay. The meals are a bit overprized for the local market.

The surroundings and facilities at Kalahari Anib are lovely. We were warmly welcomed, went on a very enjoyable sunset game drive, and our room was clean and comfortable. However, administrative glitches were disappointing. There was an error in the recording of our room booking which caused my luggage to be moved without my permission, and we were charged twice for... More

We stayed two nights at the start of a five week trip in Namibia. It was our first “African” lodge, so we were excited about seeing animals and getting out in the wilds of Namibia. The location is great on the edge of the Kalahari sand dunes. We were able to do pleasant walks and a night drive. We saw... More

Very friendly staff. Large rooms with aircon and mosquito nets. A great veranda to soak up some sun and just admire that beautiful Kalahari sunset. Dinners are divine. Seriously, considering that they are located in the middle of nowhere, their menu is exquisite. They have a welcoming bar to enjoy a drink at any time and stunning swimming pool with... More

We stayed at Kalahari Anib Lodge for one night and had a family room with a small terrace overlloking a waterhole and the fields. On top of that, we were lucky enough to stay when there were no groups, so it all felt very relaxed and quiet (I think there were 11 guests at the lodge in total, comparing to... More

The warmth and friendliness of every single person, from reception right though to the cleaning ladies was the best we have ever experienced. We appreciate the training that you invest in the youth. Thank you for a lovely weekend get away.

This lodge is an oasis along the edge of the Kalahari. My one night stay in mid-winter found me sitting around each of the two fireplaces and, for a brief while, the fire pit on the patio with a glass of red wine to warm the belly. The staff were attentive, but not intrusive. The cottage out the back of... More
