From the moment we were picked up from the airstrip by our guide Lucas our stay was amazing, We had booked the dune camp but were upgraded to the lodge and highly recommend staying there. Although arriving late our guide managed to take us out for a sundowner and we enjoyed the beautiful sunset sipping wine on a red dune. The lodge itself was luxurious with spacious bedrooms with verandas looking out across the spectacular desert vistas, In the comfortable main area we met the other guests by the fire before having a tasty five course meal delivered by a friendly team of staff announced in their native language. The next day we did a full day desert safari with our fantastic guide Lucas, we had a great day exploring the desert and spotting wildlife, we stopped for lunch at a huge pile of boulders which created a cave where they kept a proper table and chairs so we could enjoy lunch with proper cutlery!
This was one of our favourite places in Namibia, the staff were attentive and friendly, Eric our host was very entertaining, the scenery was beautiful, the lodge had a good atmosphere and our guide Lucas was very knowledgable and friendly. We stayed two nights and wish we had stayed three, we highly recommend this hotel to everyone.
