My wife and I stayed in the sister Desert Camp, 4km away, but we came here for breakfast and dinner. Breakfast was good and plentiful (and early), and dinner was superb.
We ate by candlelight on the terrace under the stars, wondering what creatures might be watching us from the nearby water hole!
At the grill, there were nine varieties of game to choose from - such as Kudu, Elland, Gembok, Ostrich, Warthog - as well as beef steak, chops, sausage and fish - and also fresh noodle and stir-fry dishes. There was a good choice of starters, salads and desserts, and we enjoyed the ubiquitous Windhoek lager and pinotage.
Staff were attentive, polite and eager to please. In early October, the lodge was full and the restaurant busy, so it would probably be advisable to book a table.
Look out for the changing patterns in the gravel at the entrance!
