We arrived full of expectations; and were sorely disappointed when we arrived; half of the camp sites were over grown with long grass; the other half had hardly any grass; the bathrooms were cleaned once a day at midday, so if you were not up early (which you don't really want to do on holiday) you were met with a flooded bathrooms with dirty floors. The shop on site was very poorly stocked. The receptionist was more interested in arranging her personal life on her mobile phone than she was to help us paying guests (disgraceful) The game drive was done at top speed, the ranger did not drive around slowly looking for any game he raced from one water hole to the next and it was very unpleasant considering the price we had to pay. We took a walk to the German cemetery that is a very important part of Namibia's history, but it was so poorly maintained and over grown it was so sad to see. The property has so much potential and if it was managed better would be a world class destination. The Waterberg plateau is fantastic and well worth the visit, but be prepared its not the same standard as other Namibian camp sites.
