We spent one night here. We have arrived here after a long day game viewing in Etosha. We found the place so peaceful, the position in the hills is amazing and serene. Interesting building with open arches that opens to the view. Good service by Abraham and his crew. Beautifully done high standards tented rooms ( was a bit noisy at night with the wind). Good food. Amazing to sit outside and stare at the view. We would definitely come back again. Good WiFi.
This lodge has some way to go before reaching the standard of other similar lodges in this area of Namibia. The tents we had were hot and there was no fan, the wind through the night caused the tent fabric to flap a lot giving the impression that it could blow away any minute. The food was dreadful, dinner and breakfast. We requested a fan for our room several times but never received one. Not a good experience at all.
It was the first time ever that we slept in a tent. The view was great and the "bush noise" was a very nice experience. We had a sundowner on the veranda and it was most enjoyable. I will go there anytime again, but stay two nights.
After visiting Etosha, we spent one night reading at Eagle. The on-site team was friendly and our ‘tent’ was gorgeous with a fantastic bathroom and comfortable bed! The views were stunning and given dinner and breakfast were included in the half board package; we didn’t have to worry about going home starving! We even spotted a kudu at their watering hole which was an added bonus! Overall a great stay if you want to unwind and get away from It all!
On the day of transfer to Estosha National Park as we get in the small car we discover that our accommodation has been changed without notifying us at all. The one thing I had stipulated was I would not stay in a tent, so our previously booked and accommodation agreeded was a lodge just 10min from Estosha gates. Imagine our shock to find we were now nearly 90 min away down a never ending dirt track and up a mountain in a tent. This experience was horrendous the three nights we had high winds so felt like being at “sea” the tent so noisy flapping away throughout the nights. This centre claims a spa it’s actually at their sister lodge over a mile away and apparently no transport to source it? The food was basic and in the three nights breaded halibut filets repeated twice as main course choice. There was no choice for any of the other courses. Breakfast haphazard toast (self service ) sandwich maker coffee lukewarm and other choices pot luck. The small swimming pool out of the sun a lot of the day needed a good clean as bottom dirty & slimy. Due to the distance to National Park instead of am/pm trips and time to relax in the day , we had to start out by 6am transported in an “open top jeep and freezing ,freezing cold. In the 11hrs away from the camp we had just 2 breaks for breakfast & lunch totalling 90min . The rest of the time we were locked in this uncomfortable vehicle as nobody can get out of their vehicles , park rules and safety. By 2pm this Safari day one ceased to be any pleasure for the two of us. I opted not to do the second tortuous day and remained behind at tented accommodation. After yet another haphazard breakfast no member of staff could be found rest of the day so promise of lunch and afternoon tea unfounded . Neither of us could wait to leave this place and suggest it’s not accessible without your own car.…
