This unique concept of African-style huts each with own small front yard and garden growing vegetables and fruit used in the kitchen of the lodge- was a great change.
The complex is very big and a drawback are the many tour buses that stop over here, however the management seem to keep the tours away from the other travellers - so it does not interfere too much.
There were two other highlights in this Lodge- The sensational viewing platform overlooking the veld (they do sundowners there which is so romantic) and the huge swimming pool- such a blessing after a long days' travelling ... BUT... only 5 loungers around the pool! Impossible for such a large complex!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Built in the wattle and daub style under Mopane trees and connected by a labyrinth of paths, the main building and chalets of the lodge look like an African village. The walls are adorned by copies of the rock engravings at Twyfelfontein. Each of the 60 double room chalets (with air conditioning) sits in a vegetable and herb garden surrounded by a low wall. The gardens supply fresh ingredients for supper, which consists of a starter followed by a delicious buffet. There is a swimming pool for chilling out and a viewing point for relishing sunsets. The lodge at the gates of Damaraland is ideally suited for excursions to Twyfelfontein (130 km), the Petrified Forest (70 km) and the Vingerklip rock pillar (50 km). ... more less
