I had a good time. Food was excellent and service good. The fact that you are upgrading, is a good idea. The air conditioning was a problem as it was very hot and there was a problem with it. We had a nice experience at the Lodge and will come again.

Seriously, you can find a lot better for the price. This was the only place during the whole 3 weeks trip where the service was unfriendly.

This lodge is well situated in the area, and has grounds that are most enjoyable, including a very large pool with a nice bar area. The updating of the rooms is a nice touch. Sizable gift shop and interesting book selection are good aspects of this facility. The various gardens that surround the chalets make for a unique setting.

We had a pleasant stay here. The rooms are quite different from other lodges - best described as a small estate of very quaint little detached cottages each with it's own vegetable garden (each morning the staff will tend to the crops and I believe the produce is used at dinner).

Warm welcome and people willing to carry your bags! Excellent personnel! Quality food and nice cold beverages! Pleasant stay so refreshing. We were so surprised with the atmosphere at dinner after a beautiful sunset. Shower with pipe extension will be welcome. Carry bags back to car on departure will be a nice spoil for visitors.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Built in the wattle and daub style under Mopane trees and connected by a labyrinth of paths, the main building and chalets of the lodge look like an African village. The walls are adorned by copies of the rock engravings at Twyfelfontein. Each of the 60 double room chalets (with air conditioning) sits in a vegetable and herb garden surrounded by a low wall. The gardens supply fresh ingredients for supper, which consists of a starter followed by a delicious buffet. There is a swimming pool for chilling out and a viewing point for relishing sunsets. The lodge at the gates of Damaraland is ideally suited for excursions to Twyfelfontein (130 km), the Petrified Forest (70 km) and the Vingerklip rock pillar (50 km). ... more   less
