By far the best accommodations in our three weeks in Namibia/Botswana. We were lucky enough to have only one other couple staying at the lodge at the same time that our group was. We were here for birding and easily found Hartlaub's Spurfowl the evening that we arrived. We were lucky enough to see then come in to the feeding station outside the breakfast room the next morning as well. Our birding guide was very good and was able to find many of the species we were looking for.
Service was top notch and staff even put hot water bottles underneath our sheets while we were at dinner! What a wonderful way to fall asleep: cool mountain air and warm feet. While the "rooms" are tents, they felt quite sturdy with wooden floors and structurally quite sound. Much of room was open,as was the bathroom area. However, everything has been planned perfectly so that no one can see in where they shouldn't. Food was absolutely stupendous and we had dinner served by candlelight while watching a kudu buck come to the small waterhole nearby. The area is easily driven to off a paved road and yet feels very far removed from everywhere else. My only complaint, if it could be called that, is that we weren't alerted to the wailings of the rock hyraxes that called from the surrounding rocks for the beginning of the night. Eerie sounds and a bit frightening if unprepared for the sound.
This is a wonderful stop and, on top of everything else, makes for a very convenient stop between Walvis Bay to the southwest and Etosha NP to the north. I only wish we'd planned two nights here rather than one. Treat yourself to this place!
