Visited Betesda 27-29 Sept. 2011. Very warm welcome from all staff esp. as we arrived at short notice after a change of plans. Very comfortable rooms with ac (needed). Plenty of hot water for morning & evening showers. Excellent trip to Sossusvlei with Smithy (arranged by lodge) which included lots of ice cold drinks & a substantial breakfast, which we...

We visited Betesda on 12 and 13 Sept 2011. There was absolutely nothing we could complain about. The recepstionist personally took us to our room, show us around and offered us coffee/tea, which is available in the reception area any time of day. Special arrangements were made for our breakfast the following morning seeing that we left the lodge at...

What a beautiful location. So peaceful and quiet. We really enjoyed our time here and think it was worth every minute of extra drive from Sossusvlei Gate. Very comfortable beds. Heaters didn't work well, but the comforter compensated nicely. Great stay.

What we heard about the cats, is true, they’re everywhere and it is quite funny. The location is wonderful, sunsets are breathtaking. The rooms all have great views on the nearby hills and have an own terrace. The restaurant is buffet-like and the food is quite basic, the dining room is inside a characteristic, African reed-roof building. The pool is...

this was the only place in Namibia where we were not offered a welcome drink, which was not a good start. There was also no soap in the very basic motel style rooms. Towels had bleach stains on them and the rooms looked tired and dated- very Fawlty Towersesque! We stayed for 2 nights and our room was not serviced...

Enjoyed the peace & quiet together with the views from our room as well as from the terrace above the pool (great sunsets!). Simple but nice and clean room with a terrace outside, watching the (pet) springbock and oryx. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful!

During our three weeks travel through all of Namibia this was by far the worst value ever! This place is definately overpriced! The cleanliness was disappointing, the entire place has no charme whatsoever, even little things don't get fixed. The family-rooms are ridiculous and the staff does not seem to be well organized at all. The only positive part about...

Our family recently stayed at Betesda lodge whilst on a Peregrine trip through Namibia. The main lodge ( reception, restuarant ) is very charming with its thatched roof. The rooms are more motel style though quite adequate. Our only issue was the lack of air-conditioning !! We spent a sleepless night under our mosquito nets getting up at 5am the...
