I do not need to use lots of words to describe that magnificent location. Plain and simple: one of the best lodges we have been to on our Namibia trip. Clean rooms, excellent and friendly service, perfect dinner. We regret that we have not spend more than just one night there! If you have more time, do so!!!

They recently had a refurbish and have replaced their rented rooms with more permanent cabin/ lodges. Everything was brand new. Highlight for me about this accommodation was the shower and food (especially the fresh stir fry noodle and lamb chops). Go for a guided safari if you are only there for a day or 2 because the guides call each...

Easy to find and welcoming site. Professional and relaxed staff. Food is buffet style, with meat or stir fry cooked as you wait. Pools were clean. Nice layout, and chalets unpretentiously designed. 1 hr from Etosha.

This Place was absolutely amazing. I thought we get luxury tents but in fact the rooms are little houses, huge bathrooms, everything perfectly clean. The dinner buffet was amazing and one of the best we had. It's a good spot to explore Etosha np since it's only 2 km away from the entrance gate.

Excellent accommodation just outside the safari park. The lodges themselves are set out in little "villages" and even though they are near other lodges you feel as though you are in a private spot. Inside they are beautiful with plenty of room. The buffet food is very good with plenty of choice.

We spent two nights in Etosha Village in June, which is low season. The lodge was not full at all and consequently also the offerings were a little bit limited. Not the full buffet to feast from, but what was offered was really very good. We also enjoyed the nights at the bar and at the fire. The room was...

The spacious, comfortable rooms with amazing bathrooms were a welcome sight after a long day of driving in the park. The extensive dinner and breakfast buffets were both delicious. We really enjoyed our stay there.
