Remote lodge in DamaralandPosted Sep 23, 2014
Pros: Good standard of accommodation and good and staff excellent - happy to impart their knowledge of flora and fauna.
Cons: Drives and excursions need improving as felt area covered was very small and guides duplicated information
Location: Isolated location but part of its charm. Not likely to travel elsewhere once you arrive
A remote location in a picturesque setting. Game is not the key driver here so don't expect to see Etosha like hers of animals. There's a chance to walk in the valley and learn about the flora with excellent and knowledgeable hosts. Birding good and the lodge has good reference material as well as Jan and Suzi's expertise. Game drives were a bit limited as terrain difficult - one will be enough. A lodge to unwind in, enjoy the surroundings and learn about animals / plant life you see elsewhere. Rooms spacious and spotless. Food good quality and meal times a social able event. Recommend a stop for 1/2 nights as part of tour around the country. Not likely to travel much when at lodge given it's 30 k or so from main road!

Relaxing lodge in the bushPosted Apr 22, 2014
Pros: Rooms, beds, tasteful decoration, great food, peace and quiet, friendly staff
Location: This lodge is deep in the bush - there is no 'nearby' - you need to go there, enjoy the bush, some game and relax
One of the best places we stayed in Namibia. Thatched bungalows nestled into the side of the hill, beautifully appointed, comfortable and ecological. Wonderful staff and great food presented by the charming Damara cooks. Great massage too - but also just peaceful bush. Will return.
Idyllic hideawayPosted May 20, 2012 on Hotels.com
The lodge is a family run business and guests are treated like friends. everyone eats round a big table and gets to know one another; the food is excellent and prepared by the Damaraland cook who will tell you all about it, and the wines are carefully chosed by Jan, the owner. There is a natural hot spring spa in the middle of the bush and a small swimming pool. Jan is very knowledegable and whilst guiding guests around the farm is happy to share much of his knowledge. This place is definitely on my list for revisiting. The description of the rooms on the website does not do them justice. There is no mobile phone network but Wifi works in the rooms and the lounge and is pretty quick.
