We had a very enjoyable 2 night stay at Amani Lodge.
This family run business specialises in rehabilitating animals with a long term view to reintroducing them back into the wild. This is a delicate topic as some places like this can be glorified zoos, but at Amani they have got it just right in my opinion.
Located about 20 km from Windhoek, Amani lodge can be found about 5 km off of the C26 along a gravel road which is passable by 2WD car with care. The accomodation is in small lodges with great views over the open countryside. Although basic the accomodation is comfortable and clean The pool is a little cold but the owners have plans to heat it.
The food at the hotel is of an excellent standard served in the beautifully designed bar/restaurant/lounge building that affords great views of some very tame cheetahs by a small water hole.
The highlight of the trip to Amani is the Big Cat tour of the Cheetahs and Lions.
