Away from it all, stunning location

Posted May 5, 2017
Off the beaten track, 45 mins from the main road, this remote, peaceful, traditional lodge will make you feel at home thanks to a warm welcome, communal meals and the friendliest of services. Because it is remote, one night definitely is too short. Be sure to arrive before sunset (the road is narrow and a bit tricky in places, you have to open 4 gates to get the lodge too) and stay at minimum 2 nights to enjoy the beautiful surroundings, the lovely pool, hot natural springs and the warm hospitality. Note: breakfast and dinner generally included. But everything else is extra (drinks, lunch, activities etc).

Remote lodge in Damaraland

Posted 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 bush

Posted Apr 22, 2014
Pros: Rooms, beds, tasteful decoration, great food, peace and quiet, friendly staff
Cons: Nothing
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 hideaway

Posted May 20, 2012 on Hotels
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.

Sehr abgelegen - lohnt sich aber

Ein liebevoller Empfang. Toller, großer Bungalow. Essen mit anderen Gästen an einem Tisch was für eine gute Stimmung sorgt. Fühlt sich sehr wohl. Jan und Jab sind tolle Gastgeber und Erzähler.

A luxury homestay

Posted Aug 9, 2016 on Hotels
Huab Lodge felt more like a homestay than a hotel. All the guests shared a long table at dinner and we had a lot of fun talking long into the evenings and nights.

Pure Erholung!

Wir haben uns in den 2 Tagen unseres Aufenthaltes sehr gut erholt. Die Landschaft um die Huab Lodge ist wunderschön und dieLodge gehört zu unseren Lieblingsaufenthalten in Namibia. Das Abendessen am grossen Tisch mit allen Gästen war einfach toll und die heiße Quelle mit anschließender Massage pure Erholung! Wir kommen gerne wieder.

Accueil très chaleureux

Posted Nov 30, 2014 on Hotels
Très bel hotel dans un magnifique cadre en pleine nature à 35km de la route. Il dispose d'une source chaude naturelle. Le plus exceptionnel est cependant : l'accueil fabuleux et exceptionnel, les gérants, le guide le kiné et les propriétaires s'ils sont présents partagent la grande table familiale avec les clients, grand moment d'échange à chaque repas ou chacun sympathise. les cuisinières présentent les plats en langue des clics et en anglais puis l'hôte nous fait découvrir chaque soir un vin différent sélectionné avec soin. C'est vraiment très convivial, on se sent plus chez des amis que dans un hotel. Expérience magnifique
