Warm welcome and good help with transport of luggage to the room Rooms very clean, cosy but very small. The view from the terrace was not top, a big red stone hill. The setting of this lodge is beautiful We had a few drinks in the lovely bar before going to the dining area. Good food (buffet style) WIFI only available in the main building Checkout took a while, but all correct.

The location, nestled among the red sandstone, is stunning, and the lodge itself is gorgeous. The dining area and the various lounge areas around the pool are beautiful and quite comfortable. I ate two dinners at the lodge, and they are truly the best I had in Namibia. Chef is passionate and creative. All of the staff here were friendly and eager to make my stay most enjoyable. There is plenty to explore and do in the area, including game drives (desert elephant and giraffe) and viewing the petroglyphs and geological wonders.

What nice break away for the family to spent some quality time together. And at the Twyfelfontein lodge with all the nice and competent staff eager to serve us. Excellent stay and we will come again and again. And on top of everything we found the desert elephants very close to the lodge, what a sighting.

Dear Joan C K, Thank you for leaving us a 4-star rating. We are so excited to hear that you had a great time at our lodge and that you really enjoyed the meals we have to offer. Unfortunately, the free WiFi does get overloaded and the internet options are extremely limited due to the remote location of the lodge. We do sell vouchers for the paid WiFi Network, should this not be sufficient. We do apologize for any inconvenience this might have caused. Next time you visit our Lodge, we would like for you to join us on some of the amazing activities we have to offer. Kind Regards Twyfelfontein Country Lodge

Room wasn't that welcoming and we faced a large rock - presume you pay more for a decent view. History is interesting with the rock drawings. No hair dryer or kettle and neither of these are loaned out by reception. No water in room which to us was unbelievable considering you are in the desert - all you need is a couple of flasks for when you first arrive. Bit of a trek to restaurant and reception from our room (sorry but can't remember the number) so don't forget anything when heading to the restaurant. We arrived late and left after breakfast so that was ok but probably wouldn't recommend. Food acceptable but certainly not as good as all the other hotels/lodges we stayed in.

Dear Happytravellers75, Thank you so much for taking the time to leave us a review and for your valuable feedback. We are very sorry to hear that your experience with us was less than satisfactory. The fact that there was no water in your room upon arrival and that you were unable to loan one of our hairdryers, at the reception, will be reported to our General Manager. Unfortunately, we do not at this point in time have kettles in the rooms due to some current power restrictions. We hope you do consider visiting us again in the future. Kind Regards Twyfelfontein Country Lodge
