We have stayed at this lodge on two occasions on our road trip through Namibia. It is a most welcome stopover after a long days drive. Rooms are very comfortable with tea/coffee making facilities and the breakfast are ample and very good. Having dinner under the stars is also special. Would definately stay there again.

Not sure what the business policy is, but considering the location of Anib Lodge, one would expect a fridge in the bedrooms to keep cold drinks or is it a intentionally done to keep customers at the bar for the whole day. Surely, that cannot be a good business policy. Air conditioning needs to be looked at because it does... More

Furniture was sparse no TV as advertised no toiletries as advertised not even a bar of soap. No fitness centre of spa facilities as advertised.

Another great stay at a lodge I always look forward to. The layout is a square courtyard with a pool and mature trees including some quivers. The restaurant serves a fixed menu for dinner and it is always exceptional. Staff come out after dinner to entertain us with their singing and a lesson in the koi language that contain various...

The chalets are built almost in a circle around a large pool area, each with own terrace. The chalets had all what is needed inclusive a very comfortable bed, meals were sumptuous and delicious. Definitely go for a stroll as you see a lot of birds and animals. If you just want to relax, sit on the terrace and enjoy... More

We had a wonderful afternoon at the lodge in the beautiful garden and could relax from traveling in the pool area with chairs under trees. In the evening we enjoed the very good meal in the garden with a spectacular sunset. The night in the comfortable beds was very relaxing. Before the breakfast (very delicous buffet) we walked through the... More

It was lovely to just get out of town into the Kalahari! The room had the basics that you need. We enjoyed our afternoon next to the pool! Dinner was amazing! Viewed a beautiful sunset! All in all a good stay!

The best stay in the Kalahari. Spacious rooms - ours with great view over the wide open spaces. Atmosphere great, food good, staff very friendly and efficient. The nature drive had a great highlight - a super sun-downer in the dunes with many happy travelers. Dinner was served in the open wile the full moon was shining.

One reason I love the Gondwana lodges is that I know you grow your own delicious veggies. However, on this trip, your staff were not at all knowledgeable about what vegetarians eat (offered chicken and fish). And the food we did get was disappointing. Please review your chef training regarding making vegetarians happy!
