  • 10.0.Exceptional

    A lovely relaxing stopping of point between Sossusvlei and Swakopmund. The accommodation is quite different from the other lodges we have stayed in, but made of local materials and blended in well with the scenery. We sat for hours on the covered patio of our room watching the activity at the nearby waterhole. The pool area was well designed and a great place to relax.

    The Perfert Desert Retreat

    The perfect desert adventure!! A truly unique location and lodge built into the side of a rocky hill, and designed with domed ceilings and rocks. The owners live at the lodge, and they were incredibly hospitable, informative, intellignt, interesting, attentive, and all around fun!! The staff was equally fantastic. The pool is one of the best I've used during my month-long travels in Namabia. The scenary stunning, and the hiking options were perfect: from an easy hour to more challenging longer hikes, all from the lodge. Zebras roam close by, and there is a flock of resident guinea fowl, along with the other beatiful birds, and the resident three house cats. I highly recommend this lodge and hope to visit again!!

    This property is in the "middle of nowhere", which also means beautiful scenery all around. The place is great to relax and offers some nice little hikes on the property. The owners are on site and really care of the welfare of their guests. We enjoyed our relaxing stay, the great pool, the good food and the wonderful cabin. We do recommend the larger ones.

    Wish for better WiFi

    It has the best view for sunset. However only if there is WiFi in the room too. WiFi at lobby is kind weak as well. No LTE no 3G at at lodge.

    Recommend this place

    Very well run Lodge. We stayed in one of the suites, it was a bit pricey, but what an experience. The views and environment were amazing. A highlight from our holiday. We had one mosquito, and no more. Not any problem. Restaurant was very good, with a very friendly atmosphere. We made a day trip to Sossusvlei which was easy. Put your polarised shades on and the dunes were still red at 1100.

    Welcome site in the middle of nowhere

    Once you turn off the main road Which is a dirt road you travel for quite a distance to the lodge. Just when you think you are on the wrong road it appears out of the sand. Stay was wonderful, room spacious, staff super friendly, meals to die for. Would recommend this to anyone going to Swakopmund from Sossusvlei area.

    Awesome setting, nice hiking trails, wonderful view from the room patio and from the pool. The staff was amazing, kind, helpful, very good service. Good and drinks at the lodge restaurant was great (good choice and delicious). We would stay there any time. The only problem was the shower pressure. Maybe it was just our room or because the hotel is eco friendly, but it was like a faint jet of water falling from the head shower. It was still possible to shower, but it was difficult to since the soap away.

    Die ganze Farm ist gut durchdacht. Bei Ankunft erhält man alle relevanten Informationen, zusätzlich findet man im Zimmer eine Broschüre mit vielen hilfreichen Hinweisen. Die Sundowner Tour mit dem Farm Besitzer ist sehr empfehlenswert und informativ. Badehose und Sonnencreme nicht vergessen, da der Poolbereich sehr schön ist! Am hauseigenen Wasserloch hat man die Chance, Bergzebras und Pferde zu beobachten. Das Essen a la cartel bietet viele Optionen und ist sehr lecker.

  • 8.0.Very good

    Gut gelegene Unterkunft auf dem Weg nach Swakopmund bzw. wenn man dieses auslassen möchte. Die Unterkunft ist schön, allerdings ein wenig in die Jahre gekommen. Von den Zimmern aus hat man einen tollen Blick in die Wüste und auf ein Wasserloch. Ein Highlight ist das Zebra dass in der Morgenstunde in der Nähe der Lodge herumläuft
