The lodge has an endless potential but for today in rooms no AC and .... 1 accessible power outlet/2 others at the 1.5m hight on the wall/, no countertop around the vessel and no outlet for hair dryer etc, only one window with mesh to open for the night when only floor standing fan is working. For a one night...

We ate a good lunch here, but saw what the hotel had to offer. The rooms look very good, airy and thatch-roofed. Good wooden carvings & fancy decorations. Relatively inexpensive. The pool looks fine. Toilets Ok - (but no soap). Unfortunately some local crooks punctured our tyre and mended it poorly for good money. But this will not happen again...

After our misadventure to NWR Khorixas Rest Camp, we managed to find Igowati as a place to stay. We came expecting little but were pleasantly surprised. Spacious room, lovely bar and pool area with a small waterhole to watch ostrich and gazelle. Good internet, possibly best on trip so far, but only in bar area, which is fine. Food was...

Nice enough main buildings, bar and pool. The camping site was situated adjacent to the main road away from the main buildings. Unfortunately for us there was party and a group of boy racers across the road making a racket until 5.00am in the morning. A lodge more for accommodated people rather than camping. A small piece of feedback, employ...

They have done the African theme extremely well. Our room12 had a king bed and loft with 2 beds. Thatched roof and cool Lovely ensure. Mosquito nets. Good pool, great bar and restaurant. Lovely African carvings and trinkets. Cheap drinks. All day filter coffee for guests. Internet very poor.

We booked a family room for 2 nights. The lodge is opposite of a petrol station and supermarket - directly on main road. If you enter the lodge gate it seems to be a nice oasis within this noisy and crowded place. The first impression was nice. There is a huge green garden. The room has a lot of space....

We experienced an unexpected detour in our Namibia trip and found ourselves in Khorixas without a place to stay. We were lucky to find the IGowati Lodge and that they had a room available. Our feedback is not negative as we weren't expecting to find a place to stay but the overall impression is that this place was originally meant...

Stayed for one night on a Nomad overland tour. The room was very clean. The building has a thatched roof. The staff were nice and friendly. There is wifi available at reception. The bed wasn't the most comfortable as it was on a concrete base and the room was a little too hot.

This is realy not a Lodge to recommend to any person. But if theirs is no other accommodation available in the area, one have to stay. Very unfriendly, unprofessional staff. The food is not on standard. The rooms need restoration. No airconditioning or TV.

Although we were very impressed with the attitude and service that we received from the staff, our stay at iGowati was disappointing. From not being acknowledged or greeted by the owners of the lodge, to no coffee facilities in the rooms and no ice for the guests on a sweltering Namibian day in the middle of December. Christmas Day dinner...
