Lovely as always. It was our 3rd visit and it feels like a home away from home. Divvie and his team really went to any length to satisfy our every need. I will definitely recommend any person to stay there. Best of luck with all the renovations - cannot wait to see it.

Beautiful accommodation, wonderful setting, friendly and attentive staff. We went on one of their walking trails and were rewarded with plenty of animal sightings. We would definitely recommend staying there!

We liked our stay very much. Our room was very nice. The 4-course-menue was excellent. I wondered how they managed to have croissants fresh out of a french bakery for breakfast. The staff, especially Aline, was very friendly and helpful.

Although Kalahari Anib Lodge being a rather big Lodge, it always felt comfortable and with an intimate atmosphere, this is mostly caused by the very friendly and charming staff members, always happy to help, provide, serve, answer etc. and always with a friendly and charming smile on their faces, which can't leave guests with not having a smile on their...

POSITIVE ASPECTS : Excellent Staff Attitude & Service; Good Cleanliness & Maintenance; Comfortable and relaxing NEGATIVE ASPECTS : Kalahari Experience completely lost due to poor Architecture; building should be outward looking into nature; Provide shaded parking.
