Our trip to Namibia was planned as a fully self catered camping trip. But after travelling from Orupembe to Opuwo on a road that was non-existent in places, we were in serious need of some TLC.
Our GPS listed the Opuwo Country Hotel and we decided to rather stay at a bed and breakfast type establishment instead of camping that night. We had our doubts after travelling through what to us felt like the less savoury part of town, but we arrived at this oasis in this arid land.
The hotel offers various types of accommodation in the form of camping, standard and luxury rooms. We opted for a standard room and at €130 it was not cheap by any standard, the breakfast that was included in the rate was out of this world, the beds comfortable and the air conditioning was functional.
The lodge facilities are first class and the views from the hilltop spectacular at sunset and sunrise.
Will we stay there again? Yes! and we might even consider camping because all the lodge facilities are available to campers as well.More
