“Quiet and peaceful place close to Andersson gate”
Reviewed 24 October 2013

This was our 4th or 5th time at Etosha Safari Lodge and as always, we could not have chosen a better place for our stay on the Western side of Etosha. The food is excellent, the staff very friendly, efficient and helpful and it is just very nice to be able to return to a clean room after a long day in the heat and dust of Etosha, knowing that the food will be excellent, the drinks cold and the bungalows far enough apart to ensure a peaceful night.

We spent two nights at this great location. Located about 10 km south of Anderson Gate it turned out to be an ideal location for visiting Etosha National Park.
Beautiful reception and dining area with a pool on the rooftop. The small apartments are spread over the hills around, giving ether a great view to sunrise or sunset.
They offer breakfest off 6 a.m. Wich allows to depart to the park really early!
The dinner was exceptionally good and the service too.

We spent 2 nights at Etosha Safari Lodge which is just 10k from the Andersson gate of the Etosha National Park. Our cabin (no.62) was clean and had everything we wanted including a small veranda for a sundowner to kick off the evening. The main lodge which houses reception, restaurant, bar & veranda overlooking wonderful countryside, was staffed by friendly, professional & enthusiastic employees. The buffet-style breakfasts & dinners were varied, generous & of high standard. Despite being based outside the park, a self-drive safari proved very easy, although we did book a group tour on our first afternoon, to get the lie of the land and our "eye in". It's worth buying the illustrated animal & bird identification map on sale at reception which not only shows the Etosha Pan & rest stops but also provides useful information on the wildlife you are likely to see. We stocked our cool box with lunch & plenty of water and enjoyed a fantastic day meandering to various water holes to see lion, rhino, giraffe, elephant, zebra & a multitude of antelope. A fantastic start to our Namibia trip.

Room Tip: All cabins offer an individual view from each veranda & are within a short walk of the main lodg...

We stayed 2 nights at ESC (Camp). The rooms were nice and clean.
The theme of a local shebeen (bar) at the main building is really interesting.
The dinners were really perfect, nice buffet, tasty, enough for all. The service perfect, the staff very friendly, had nice talks to the head chef about the delicious food. The breakfast buffet was also with a wide diversity of fruits, juices, cereals,... The pancakes were fantastic!
There was live music, generating a perfect african atmosphere.
We enjoyed our stay and will come back!

Once again a very pleasant stay. Staff efficient, friendly and multi-lingual.
Suggestion: PLEASE equip the room with a small fridge.
Unfortunately rates for RSA visitors are quite high. Our Australian friends thought it was reasonable.....

Stayed in no 35. Toilet sometimes continue to leak water after flushing. This is indicative of hard water depositing calcification on water mechanisms. Calcification deposits also evident inside toilet bowl. If maintained properly it could avoid expensive replacements. Use a little hydrochloric acid (swimming pool acid) to dissolve deposited salts
