The way to the lodge is very easy, 10 km befor Mariantal left, 20 km on the paved road and then a entrance gate on the left and just 3 km sandroad to the lodge.
Nice welcome with juice. We had luck and became rooms at the back and not the a room around the first pool. We had a beatifull view from our terrace. The room was huge, clean, cool and with moskitonet. We parked the car direct in the back of the buildung, so that we just need to carry our luggage 10 m.
The second pool is phantastic for sunset. We stayed 2 days, made sunrise and a sunset game drive. The are very nice. We also walked a few hours through the area, which is no problem, because there are no predators.
We also visited the dam 30 km away, but they are reconstructing the whole area, so that we had to pay there 9 € without any possibility to get on the other side of the dam to hike a little bit ( there should be some rhinos). So we left the dam 20 min. later.
The breakfast is good and the diner is also very god, but it is a fix menue. So that you have no choise, you get what all others also get (which is logical, when you have to provide min. 40-80 meals per evening). So if you are no kudu (antilope) fan and the main is kudu, you have to eat it. The eating area is outside below the stars.
As first lodge on our trip this was perfect, just 250 km from windhoek.
