#1 of 7 Specialty lodging in Khorixas
Travelers' Choice
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).

The design and cleanliness of the room caught my eye as soon as I entered. Every chalet had its own garden(I think thats just awesome). Enjoyed the pool, the ever-friendly staff and the location! Definitely worth coming back!!!

We stayed for three nights. Wonderful staff, service, food, amenities and location. In spite of our visit coinciding with difficult and frustrating times, the staff made us feel really welcome. Compliments to the chef(s)!

Really bad experience! Made a reservation for a night. Because of the distance to travel I made a phonecall to make sure everything was ok. Unfortunately the lady on the phone told me they were overbooked and not able to accommodate us the next day. So we had to make a reservation in another hotel for that night. She told me someone would contact me for the refund. The next day the hotel called me to ask at what time we would arrive (it was already 8pm). I explained the situation and told her we were in a hotel far from their place. She promised me that someone would call for the refund. Unfortunately after a lot of e-mails and calls I haven't received any refund. 182$ lost! Really disappointed by their customer service.

A lodge with very beautiful surroundings. A nice room with comfortable beds. The breakfast was good and our buffet dinner was excellent! Outside in "our" garden, the vegetable that we had in the diningroom, was growing.

This a a large hotel what caters for tour groups and serves only buffet food in the evening. So if you like buffets this is the place to go. Rooms are nicely decorated and the hotel has a large swimming pool, they need it because this hotel can accommodate 120 people. Staff is friendly. I have seen better but it was ok for 1 night.
