This is an unusual and charming place, all built out of clay obviously, with a beautiful communal area and a well-designed pool, and well-appointed accommodation huts. It's not big, and therefore there's less chance of encountering a large group. The owner, Bettina, is a charming and helpful host, and was very helpful to us when we had an emergency at... More

We stayed here at the end of a self-drive safari. It is close to Windhoek airport where we dropped off our rental car and took a flight back home. It is a great place to unwind and relax after being on the road. It is a charming little lodge with rustic decor. It is the little thoughtful touches that make... More

We spent our last 2 nights in Namibia, after a fabulous road trip of nearly 3000km Eningu was perfect in every way. An hour or so south of Windhoek, ideal for the airport run, Eningu has so much to offer,a pool, roof terrace perfect for sundowners, walking trails and a waterhole, throw in great food a very friendly team and...

What a surprise, and what a treat to stay at this Lodge. Bettina has created a dream location just 1 hour from the airport. Beautiful rooms, all spotless and with individual character. The artwork throughout the location is superb, and the meals are very tasty. They also have a very good wine list with good wines that are very reasonably... More

I wish we'd stayed longer than one night, this place was seriously lovely. After a long drive the cold towel and drink was most welcome, and the service remained great through our stay. The room was spacious (we were in the family room) and nicely decorated - the individual clay houses are beautiful. The swimming pool was cold, which was... More

Arrived here hot and more than a little dusty to be greeted with a delicious cold lemon and mint drink and cold flannels followed a short time later by coffee and cake which set the tone for our stay here. Our room was large and cool with lots of windows and plenty of space to move around. The bathroom was... More

Looking at the guest book,many of this fine establishment's guests only stay here overnight on their way to or from the airport.That is a shame because this is one of the best hotels/guesthouses I have stayed in for a long while. The thinking behind the series of adobe buildings,their execution and design must have been a work of love.They blend... More

Eningu Lodge is delightful in all ways and the perfect way to end a trip to Namibia. The attractive clay accommodations reminded us of Sante Fe. Located in the Kalahari Desert, it is a very peaceful setting and the stars were so brilliant. The rooms are spacious, comfortable and beautifully decorated. Dinner was excellent and there was a lot of... More

this was our last night in Namibia and we loved it. The rooms are beautifully designed in a lovely setting. Bettina the host is very welcoming and we had a lovely meal. It's only an hour from the airport and on route we saw last views of Namibia including oryx, springbok and a family of warthogs!

This was a perfect stay at the beginning of our round trip in Namibia and South-Africa. The surroundings of Eningu are very beautiful. It is a perfect spot to experience the tranquility and wonders of the Kalahari Desert. The rooms are beautiful and have a personal style. Outside there is a nice bird hide and you can make a few...
