Hochland Nest
Reviewed November 8, 2012

I literally stumbled across this lodge at night after an exhausting day on the road (Namibian drivers believe they are immortal) and was received with aplomb, a pleasant light dinner and a decent bottle of wine. The chalet was spacious and comfortable with a breathtaking view. Breakfast was great in a beautiful setting. The cats (apparently descended from a wild breed) were something special. All in all, a recommended stay, in fact if I don't have a specific reason for staying in Windhoek I would prefer to stay here.

After driving the 40-odd kilometres from Windhoek through dry bushveld, the impression of the lake with the restaurant area on stilts in the water is really impressive. The service was personal and unusually attentive, which makes for a great stay. Food was good too. I have stayed there more than once while on business in Windhoek and have not been disappointed. Worth the drive to get out of the city.

Room Tip: The chalets near the water's edge are colder in winter than those higher up, but being on the wa...

We wanted a quiet lodge with walking trails reasonably close to Windhoek to relax after long flights and before joining a tour. Hochland Nest exceeded our expectations. The lodge is quiet wiht a friendly helpful staff and with a hefty four course dinner that included game some nights. We spent a lovely three days walking trails close to the lodge and saw 65 species of birds and some mammals. The room was delightful and they have well thought through little touches present. Can highly recommend. The lodge organized for transport to and from the airport and that went smoothly.

This is an unbelievable breakaway, from the reception we have been treated like family. The view from the restaurant compliments excelent 4 course meals. The kids loved the weekend, we will definitely be back!

Hochland nest is situated about 40 km from Windhoek, all individual chalets (we took a luxury one - with bath) but don't think it's worth the price difference, all give nice view on a small valley, service was fine, food of good quality (3 course dinner), for us it was a good starting point, we could relax a bit in the small pool (there was only one other couple staying in the lodge), although think when it's completely full, cosy atmosphere might disappear. Only disappointment was the new 'manager' whom seemed to have lost his enthousiasm somewhere in the past, shame because it's a nice quiet place.

It is an outstanding lodge with the serenity flowing over one as you enter the surroundings. The service of staff is of excellent nature and you are treated like royalty. Food is excellent and the variety could improve but for a smaller place like Hochland Nest Lodge it is sufficient.
