My wife and I were lucky enough to stay here for three nights at the end of 4 weeks of travel through Southern Africa. Naankuse can be anything you want it to be and if you take the time to look at some reviews and the web site you will not be disappointed. The little cottages are modern and as good as you could possibly want with elec/blankets comfy beds and even a/c.The meals are fantastic and the kitchen staff will go out of their way to make you happy
There are plenty of activities including carnivore feeding, caracal walks and my personal favourite the cheetah walk with Kiki the cheetah and Solomon the guide, wow thank you Solomon.
The school and the farm are special places to visit especially if you meet up with Melissa and some of the volunteers .
Finally take some time to get to know the staff in particular Jodi and Marilise two of the warmest and most helpful people we met in Africa.We wil go back.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The N/a’an ku se Lodge & Wildlife Sanctuary is near the Airport and central Windhoek, on a 3.200 hectare big reserve. We offer Carnivore Feeding Tours, Bushman stories and stargazing dinners, Cheetah experiences and a “Behind the Scenes with Marlice” tour. Choose to stay in one of our six individual chalets or one of our eight exclusive holiday homes. We offer a dining area with award-winning cuisine, stunning views, bar and swimming pool. A delightful blend of rich ethnicity and modern luxury. The N/a’an ku se Lodge is the only Charity Lodge in Namibia, all profits from our lodge are returned back to our charitable projects. N/a’an ku se supports the local San community and activities are led by the local San. Volunteers looking to help with conservation can join the Volunteer Program offered on the N/a’an ku se Wildlife Sanctuary. The program offers volunteers the rare and exciting opportunity to work closely with and actively participate in the conservation of African wildlife. Volunteers can stay from 2 weeks to 3 months and will have the unique experience to care for our wildlife including a number of lions, leopards, cheetahs, wild dogs, caracals and baboons and many more, kept at the Sanctuary because they can unfortunately not be released into the wild again. Both experiences will leave you with great memories of Namibia while aiding in our conservation efforts which better the lives of the local San Bushmen and our animals. The N/a’an ku se Lodge & Wildlife Sanctuary is the ideal place to stay at the beginning or the end of your journey through Namibia. ... more less
