Great place. Service was a very basic. The WiFi was terrible. The good good but little option for dinner, and given the location it is impossible to go to other places.

The lodge was great and the staff was excellent! My room was superb and spacious, and I had a great view! The restaurant had plenty of delicious options and the menu always varied. The shuttle allowed me to make my appointments or errands in the city and made airport pickup super easy! The staff always went above and beyond! I had the best stay here and I'll definitely be staying here for all my trips to Namibia! I highly recommend this lodge!

Manager is absolutely wonderful. Gosh I wish I could recall her by name! The whole place is welcoming, from the reception, to restaurant staff, to bar staff, to room hospitality. Rooms are large and comfortable. The view is reason enough to visit, but go for the food. The food is incredible. I would be very happy just to live there! We were there as a herping group, and were treated like royalty, despite our dirty clothing from hiking and our over indulgence in delicious Rock Shandys. When my airport transfer didn't show up the manager was there to help. Awesome place to stay!
