this was our 2nd stay and it was as memorable as the 1st one. we stayed at a not yet renovated dunes chalet and it was perfect. the view over the dunes covered with green, simply amazing. the service, food and the lodge itself are great and we are looking forward to our next visit, when the renovating and enlarging of the pool area will be finished.

this was our 2nd stay at Bagatelle and is was memorable as the 1st. We did not miss a thing. The service, the food, the lodge itself, all was excellent. The dunes were covered with green grass, which was very impressive to see. we stayed at one of the not yet renovated dune chalets, but it was perfect. Still we are very curious to see how the lodge looks like with all the chalets renovated and the pool area enlarged and improved. Therefore we will be back for sure.

This was our last camping site in Namibia, on our way back to Windhoek from the South and it was a wonderful farewell.

The bathrooms are very nice, clean and spacious and the main reception area is the same for campers and lodgers, so we enjoyed a very luxurious afternoon in the pool with afternoon tea and cake.

We did both the cheetah feeding activity and a morning game drive and they were both great - the game drive was absolutely beautiful, though you shouldn't expect to see that many animals.

The staff was nice enough, although I left with the impression that our stay could've been much warmer and enjoyable if they were more enthusiastic and interested in the guests.

It was already my second stay in one of the beautiful camping sites at the Bagatelle Game Ranch. Thanks to the Management, to allow me to take my dog with me to the campsite! We stood 6 days and enjoyed every single moment!

Bagatelle is about 3 hours drive from Windhoek, and 30km along a dusty gravel road, so is an isolated spot. The staff were helpful and charming throughout our stay. We had a dune chalet which had a great view across the landscape and the nearby watering hole. The fixtures and fittings were somewhat tired, but the room and bathroom were spotless, and the bath had a lovely view of the passing wildlife. We enjoyed the game drive (2 1/2 hours, seeing zebra, giraffe, kudu, wildebeest, vultures, and lots of oryx and springbok). However the vehicle was overcrowded, sitting three abreast, so views could be restricted. The drive ended with feeding the resident orphaned cheetahs which was a wonderful sight, and a drink while watching the sunset (and the nearby thunderstorms - rainy season in January). Dinner was delicious, outside by the small swimming pool. We skipped breakfast (although it looked good) to go horse riding. They cater for all riding abilities, and the cowboys led the ride very well.
The Bagatelle lodge is in a beautiful position with excellent staff and a great range of activities. Some chalets may need updating, but overall, a comfortable stay. The game drive could be improved with smaller or less crowded vehicles. Definitely recommended.

We visited Bagatelle first 4 years ago - and moved last time 2 years ago to a lodge nearby. This year we stayed from 5th Jan. only 1 night in the Dune chalets - amazing. Under new management and lots of useful renovation the lodge is in southern Nam our favorite. Location, environment, service is outstanding -thanks for a great stay there.

We loved our two nights camping at Bagatelle. There are only 5 sites which are situated quite a distance from each other so very private. Each site has it's own ablution block.
We felt at one with nature yet if we wanted wifi or a meal we had only to drive to the lodge. The food was delicious.
We did the cheetah feeding which was extremely interesting and then sundowners on the dunes - beautiful photo opps.
