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

We stayed at the campsite of Kalahari Anib Lodge as a 1-night stopover between the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park and Sesriem and we really enjoyed our stay! We were really happy we could use the restaurant of the lodge after cooking ourselves for 8 days in the Kgalagadi so we really made use of it. We had lunch and dinner on... More

We stayed here for two nights on our way back to Cape Town and it was by far one of the best campsites we've visited in namibia. The sites are really well appointed, totally separate from each other and each has its own private loo and shower. We dined at the restaurant which was a set menu - but really... More
