This was our first stopover on a 2 week trip around Namibia. It is very close to the capital and just off the main motorway so convenient if you don't want to have a long drive just after landing in the country but also don't fancy spending your first night in the city. Location is not spectacular though. Still, first impression was very good, the place is set in expansive own grassland and you can see some Antilopes from the car and warthogs on the lawn right in front of the main house and restaurant. Maybe not too impressive for anybody who's been around Africa already but as it was our first trip and first day, exciting enough. Room was big with nice views across the grassland and clean enough, with a thatched roof. The complimentary lion feeding is a chance to see the big mal lion very close up which you would rarely get otherwise. But these are by no means wild lions, they live in an enclosure (which is much bigger than anything you would see in a zoo, so I don't see an issue from an animal welfare point). Food was ok and German inspired, similar to what we had in other places later during our trip. Varieties of game, other dishes (had a vegetarian meal) not overwhelming but perfectly edible. Service was ok but didn't feel like anybody was going out of their way for you. Staff in the restaurant were very friendly and clearly trying their very best.
