Only stayed there one night in early August, unfortunately, but the owner, Chris, and his staff were friendly. helpful and knowledgeable. Chris went out of his way to help me get my camera back and gave my wife and I a lift to the ranks in Ghanzi the next morning.
I'd go back just for the food. We had the best beef hamburgers we had on our three-week trip, plus there is an amazing array of game meat offerings.
You'll see a lot of places similar to this one, but you won't see one as as inviting, comfortable and affordable. I can certainly see why Lonely Planet loves this place.
