Stayed here for one night in October - our first night in Namibia this year - but wish we had stayed longer. It's a lovely place and really interesting. Lots of birds, butterflies etc. Staff all really friendly and food excellent. Really peaceful.

The place is wonderful! Lots of space and lots of freedom to move around, trails and dirt roads for safaries. I loved the fact that I was able to hike and not just drive. Animals are all over and it brings a lot of joy. Rooms are spacious and clean and have that modern African vibe. Another very special thing is the food. While breakfast and mini lunch are tasty, dinners are truly delicious and unique as dishes announced on Damara language. Also we tried lots of fake meat there which was cool! We also were able to rent a safari car there, very convenient. Overall, I would definitely stay there again and recommend to anyone!

The campsite was laid out on grass which was a nice change, there was electricity on each plot and the showers etc were good. But the camping area did lack atmosphere . We were the only people on the site which didn't help. Our car alarm went off at midnight, which has never happened before and there was a member of staff wandering around in the early hours. The lodge area was nice with lots of places to sit. We had a lovely game drive day 1 and a guided bike ride on day 2. The guide was informative and we learned a lot . We even got a chance to feed ostriches and watch while the guide fed a cheetah. The food was very disappointing, as a vegetarian in Namibia I get used to eggs and cheese and indeed I was given an omelette instead of lasagna, but this was the blandest omelette I have ever eaten, no seasoning and filled with soggy mushrooms and cold tomatoes. For breakfast I only wanted toast as sausage and bacon are not vegetarian but I was charged the same rate as if I had eaten a full breakfast. £7.50 for 2 pieces of toast and a cup of coffee is quite pricey even in the UK.

Certainly the game at waterhole and porcupine-viewing were great experiences but my lodge accommodation disappointed with its lack of amenities over the two nights: not even a coffee cup or spoon in the kitchen (let alone coffee), and bathroom with a speck of shampoo in a nearly empty single-use container plus similarly depleted body-wash. Curiously mean for a supposedly upmarket establishment.

We stayed here overnight with our 4x4 with Rooftop tent on our way to Etosha. The owners are super nice and gave us a warm welcome. it was great chatting with them and we ended up having dinner and breakfast at the facilities there instead of cooking our own. There is a nice lit waterhole and a large fence with lots of porcupines which they called us watch feeding time. Amazing!

We stayed over for one night in March 2019 on our way north. the lodge was a very welcoming stopover. We stayed in 2 chalets and had a great bbq, facilities are good and the chalets have a nice braai area, under the mopane trees. Service was excellent and the staff very attentive and friendly. Breakfast was also very good with delicious fresh bread. We didn't get a chance to explore the farm itself, but the lodge is excellent and I would certainly stay there again.

Part work part holiday in Namibia stayed at Sophienhof in the VIP lodge. Beautiful self contained lodge perched on a ridge above the main buildings. Panoramic view of the area including the waterhole and comes with telescope. Saw no end of animals in the day and particularly at night around the lit up waterhole. Private pool, and small garden were great but the stuffed animals in the kitchen dining area are maybe a little over the top. Staff were very friendly and helpful food is simple but excellent after a long day seeing the wildlife. Went on the Game Drive and the Farm Drive and both were inexpensive and well worth doing (feeding the Cheetahs was a marvellous experience). Close to Outjo which has shops, filling stations and banks etc and about 50 mins from Etosha National Park which is well worth a visit - loved the whole experience

We stayed on the Sophienhof Lodge campsite for 2 days and had a very special time there with friendly staff and family-like atmosphere. We attended the cheetah feeding and had the best game drive across big parts of the property. Our son also liked the clean and shady pool, the wi-fi and the porcupines. Nothing to complain about, thanks for hosting us!

360N$ for 2 people for camp area. We were the only people there that night, so think we were lucky to enjoy the place. Lush green grass areas, with wash up sink and BBQ shady trees and Wi-Fi available only in reception area(free). Lots of wild life around at sunset Shower & Toilets close by clean.. The whole lodge was immaculate. We had breakfast at the lodge in morning..and it was just ok..tin jam put into fancy jars, food not that hot on arrival, but the home made bread..great...we were quoted 130N$ per person the night before, on getting the bill the rather unfriendly women said "No it's 150N$ per person " no apologies..just pay!.. the lady needs some love.. But over all a lovely place to stay!

After a long drive, we arrived at this lovely family run lodge. It had a lovely pool, a waterhole, a porcupine sanctuary and lovely rooms (ours was up steps). We went on the game drive and fed ostriches by hand and went up close to cheetahs and saw a plethora of other animals - ostriches, springboks, hornbills, zebra, giraffes, gnu, steenbok, dik-dik, water buck, kudu, impala, oryx,warthogs and eland, . The guide was amazing, showing us many animals and even a lode stone and the stinky bush! Dinner was very good and the rooms nice (though we had lots of flies for some reason). The only negative was the hard pillow. A lovely, friendly lodge - we loved it!
