I know this isn't a blogging page nor is it a platform for commenting on reviews of other travellers, but I have been a N/a'an ku se Fan for many years and therefor I see it as my duty to comment on the bad reviews they have had the past times.
Its so sad to see that travellers to this wonderful place, actually miss the whole point... I wonder if they realised that probably none of the San Bushmen employed on this project, have completed their school years, not even to talk of the possibility that any of them actually did any tertiary education...so to go back home and write reviews like the past 2 (German reviews...), that I think is such bad taste. I bet my last salary cheque that these guests actually not complain to the Management whilst they were there, and have most probably smiled in their faces, to then go back home and write those horrible reviews....
I mean, really, to complain about jam that is served in a jar... I'm a diabetic and think that is one of the best things of Naankuse - nothing is a secret, all their work and projects are above board, even the ingredients on the jam-jar! So now i can eat happily away as i know what is inside the jar! and so i can carry on and on and on.... but I won't bore you with all my praises, i just want to say, Naankuse, keep on doing what you do, I think you guys are amazing and you do fab jobs! well done for trying to make a difference in the world and a difference to the San people's lives.
Ignore the bad reviews, that will always be there. Keep your heads up, and look forward!
i will always go back for the peace, the quiet, the great views, the good food, the friendly faces, to me it feels like going home. I love Naankuse!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- N/a'an ku se Lodge and Wildlife Sanctuary offers two types of accommodation: one for lodge guests at our luxury charity lodge, and one for volunteers looking to help with conservation. For our lodge guests, the N/a'an ku se Lodge is the ONLY charity lodge in Namibia, with all profits going back to the foundation's conservation and human aid programs. The Lodge offers six individual luxury chalets and five private holiday homes set in the middle of a 3,200ha wildlife reserve in the African Savannah. It is located only 30 minutes away from the airport and therefore makes it the ideal place to stay at the beginning or the end of your journey through Namibia. To view animals, our lodge guests have access to our carnivore tours and game drives, led by our local San Bushmen. For our volunteers, N/a'an ku se's Wildlife Conservation Volunteer Program is located at the Wildlife Sanctuary, and offers volunteers the rare and exciting opportunity to work closely with and actively participate in the conservation of African wildlife. Volunteers can stay from 2 weeks to 3 months and will have the opportunity to care for our orphaned and injured wildlife including a number of lions, leopards, cheetahs, wild dogs, caracals and baboons, etc. Both experiences will leave you with great memories of Namibia while aiding in our conservation efforts which better the lives of the local San Bushmen and our animals. ... more less
