We loved this lodge. Yes it might be a long dusty road to reach it but that's part of its charm. The owners were away when we arrived but we were warmly welcomed by Jaap and shown to our spacious and comfortable bungalow with its large shady terrace - and enclosed bathroom!!. We had the good fortune to be the only guests the first night and so were able to monopolise Jaap and Cathy's attention and gain some insight into what it is like to live at Huab. Our stay was only for two nights (I would have quite liked to stay longer) so we took advantage of going out for nature drives with Jaap who was very knowledgeable about all the wildlife, flora and fauna. And whilst other reviewers comment that there wasn't much to see, I disagree entirely - my notes show a list of some 30+ animals and birds that we encountered on our drives. I also think they missed the point about what the owners of Huab and the adjoining lands have done in providing a transit route through the area for the wildlife. The tradition of dining with the staff is a lovely one and made for a very pleasant social occasion. On our second night we were joined by another couple which changed the dynamics again. The food was excellent and it was lovely that the chef introduced the menu in her native click language which was then translated for us by one of the other staff. We visited the hot springs and watched the sun go down as we wallowed in the lovely warm waters. We hope some day to get back to Namibia and Huab Lodge will definitely be on our accommodation list.
