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!

Service, food and room equipment less than average. Stunning scenery, very dedicated guides on the game drives. Nice and clean pool area. Rooms had stunning views. Overall it seemed that a litte TLC would be good.

We had a very pleasant stay. The service is good and everyone is very friendly and helpful. Rooms are neat & tidy and are provided with air-conditioning. The setting is nice, especially for dinner. Food is really good! Although the supper is a 3 course meal with a large selection of salads from the salad bar, the main course could... More

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
