Bathroom pipes noisy. Shower design impractical, after a shower there is water everywhere. The basin area & floor is wet to the point you have no dry area to stand on. However the friendly staff & quality of meals makes up for everything.

This is part of the Gondwana chain of superb lodges throughout Namibia. This particular lodge did not disappoint. First, the main building has an impressive architecture, where the main walkway leads you directly out to a spacious deck with superb views over the valley and woodlands below. Sunset drinks are a must. Second, the rooms are individual chalets which are...

Wifi is only available near the restaurant and reception as the chalets are too far away to get reception. Breakfast and dinner were fine with reasonable selections.
