After a long day walking the dunes and Sesriem we arrived before sunset, dusty thirsty but excited after a very successful day. The lobby is a beautiful building with a straw roof with the very nice dinning room. The rooms were spacious to the back with a small terrace with the views of the African desert with mountains and acacia... More

We really liked this lodge with comfortable and affordable rooms. The matresses are firm, the shower hot and the rooms spacious. Most rooms have air conditioning or a cold water cooling system that works really well. All the rooms have a small terrace. Staff is friendly and attentive. Every night they serve a fixed 4 course menu which was really... More

Clean room, comfortable bed. Simple but good. Tasty buffet dinner. For breakfast if you leave early they provide bfst box. Nice pool and bbq place for relaxing. Around 50min drive to sossusvlei. - wifi on and off. Walls not that thick so you can hear neighbors. Good water pressure with hot water.

Very average camping facilities. No power and the showers / toilets looked good from the outside, but shabby inside. The camping area is quite remote from the main lodge / bar. They claim there is Wi-Fi, but it is only available in the main lodge and it didn't work there either. They also have a convoluted system when buying a... More

We camped there recently and we were given a spot right next to the little bridge, I think it was no 7. There were no one else in the camp, but thought the other people will still be arriving. However, as night time came, we realised there were no other campers, and couldn't understand why we were given that spot,... More

The highlight of this place was the staff. We had a flat tyre there and the lodge provided us with a guy to help change it - his fourth for the day! Rooms were well equipped. His delightful sister was a joy. The food was not so smart - certainly didn't compare well to other lodges we enjoyed in Namibia

Nice views from the rooms but that’s about it. Accommodation is very basic with limited hot water, no wifi in the rooms and very difficult to get access at the lobby. Breakfast and buffet dinner of average to poor quality.
