we stayed here for one night on our way to Etosha, we had a tent as opposed to a bungalow, which was quirky and nicely furnished. The en-suite shower and toilet facilities were clean and tidy and best of all, the shower was powerful.
We had a friendly welcome by Monika and Herbert and both were extremely helpful. We also had electric hook-up for our fridge which was helpful!!
Dinner was lovely in a peaceful setting with green lit palm trees, overlooking the mountains - all very serene.
We were being kept company by Paul the Jack Russell, he followed us around and sat on the chair on our stoepie by the tent. What a darling little dog! xx
On a down side: the beds in our tent were most uncomfortable, you could feel the springs digging into your skin with every move which wasn't nice, so we ended up having an awful night's sleep, which was a real shame as we had a long journey ahead of us the following day - and desperately needed a good night's sleep!!
When we left after a sumptuous breakfast, I managed to leave our South African extension lead behind in the tent - this wasn't discovered until after a long journey when we arrived at Etosha. We wanted to charge our camera batteries and phones. My heart sank all the way to my ankles and I started feeling very sick, teary and faint.. what would we do without this lead with 3 more weeks of travelling to do??..We made a desperate call to Etusis and Herbert confirmed that the lead was indeed in our tent. BUT.... as luck would have it, there were 3 people staying at Etusis that night who were also travelling to Etosha the following day. He would give them our lead and we could collect it from reception at their lodge from appx 3pm onwards. This we did, and a huge huge thanks to Mr & Mrs K.. you saved my bacon! We all need a little luck from time to time - and OMG, how lucky was I that day?
