We stayed at the Otjiwa self catering units (as we have children and we were informed that they are not welcome at the lodge itself - already quite a let down). We paid about N$2000 for one night (excluding meals). However, the unit was not very clean, did not have sufficient self catering equipment, many of the lights did not... More

First time we stayed here, certainly not the last. We found the place on the internet and was very happy with our stay. The game drive and the Rhino's was a surprise. The chalets and the self catering units are all very well dressed.Staff and the food was good. You will see us again.

It is a lodge wonderful located in the nature. The rooms are spacious. In the restaurant you can have good food, however the atmosphere is not very warm. Noisy fridges delute your comfort. Some decorations are out of place. Some staff are smoking which gives an unprofessional impression.

A great place to camp for a few nights, try to get campsite 3 as its right on the edge of the waterhole. All camps with sink, braai / fire pit, electricity, light and free fire wood with nice, clean, open air ablutions. The lodge and pool area itself are stunning. There are sabel and rhino in the ground, and... More

My family and i recently spent a night at Otijwa. We had a wonderful stay. Even though we were among other guests the lodging is cleverly positioned that you don't realise. We were welcomed by friendly reception staff and were accomodated with our request that we could all stay close together. Rooms 5,6,7 and 8 are fantastic. They are beautifully... More

This was the most wonderful camp site. We were allocated No 3 which had a view over a waterhole. Although rustic, it was very clean and comfortable. Regrettably we had a group of women camping next to us who were very noisy with loud music going on to almost midnight. This spoilt the opportunity for us to listen to the... More

We agree with the most of the guests how beautiful and how well done is the camping area. Unfortunatelly, the second and the third day of our stay we had to make the fire to warm up the water in the showers by our self. And the firewood we had to collect by ourselfs. We complained on the second day.... More

We had a great weekend away at Otjiwa, which included a MTB event through the african bush. The Excusive Rooms are very spacious, clean and well decorated. The bathrooms are enormous and well designed, but the shower water could have been a bit hotter. Lukewarm just does not do it. :-( Food is average to good, but the knowledge of... More

We had a cycling event at Otjiwa Safari Lodge and wow... So clean. The ablution area was clean and are cleaned daily. You take a shower under the stars in the sky. So peaceful. They come around each camping site with wood if you need some and cleaning your area daily. I can really recommend Otjiwa for campers!!
