One of the loveliest places to stay in Namibia, in the middle of the Erongo Nature Conservancy on a lodge set in pristine wilderness. The bungalows (10 in all, two rooms per building) are large, extremely comfortable and superbly laid out, under thatched traditional roofs. The local nature walks to the rock paintings are easy to follow yourself and completely safe. For the more adventurous there are beautiful walks and climbs all over the property. The sundowner drive combines both astonishing views of the farm looking 50km in every direction toward the Brandberg mountain which glows red as the sun sets with an interesting presentation of the night sky after dark. The drinks are basic on the drive but the food in the lodge is good and very nicely served. Game features prominently. The deal is B&B but realistically there is nowhere else to eat within miles and miles so this is the only choice. Slightly varied breakfasts, one day superb, the next slightly jaded. Charming staff, mostly German speaking guests and when we were there our party had the place to ourselves part of the time.
