Booked through Cardboard Box website. No problems with that.
25 miles up a dirt road (okay in a saloon car unless it's been raining heavily) lies this pretty little establishment overseen by Regina, a charming Austrian lady who has been in Namibia since the 1960s. Her game farm is a delightful place, aesthetically pleasing with a good standard of comfort, almost luxurious for its remote location.
Our room was very clean and comfortable, spacious, with a good bathroom and power shower. Her young friend Debbie was helping out when we were there, and when we had phoned ahead to check the condition of the road, she asked if we wanted a light lunch on our arrival. It was all laid out for us, and once we'd freshened up there was coffee and cake in the afternoon, followed by a stroll with Debbie in the back garden - 18,000 acres - during which we literally walked into a herd of wildebeest, found some lion tracks (thankfully three days old), and came across various other insect and animal life which Debbie gave us information about.
After a fine evening meal of eland roulade with Regina and Debbie, Regina went off to bed and we sat up chatting over drinks (we were the only guests) until one in the morning. We felt more like friends who had dropped round for a meal and drinks rather than guests, and this was much to our liking. The wine and whisky, incidentally, were very good. And the breakfast next morning was fine, too.
We wished we could have stayed longer, for Ermo was a most relaxing place, and the area around it seemed more interesting than first thought. But alas it was a short break in the journey from Palmwag to Etosha. Perhaps another time.
