The cabins at the edge of the plateau are bueatifully located. The bed is very good and the bathroom as well. Breakfast, lunch and dinner at the restaurant are good. The service is good as well. We loved the nature drive to the rhinos.More

If you visit nature, nature might return the favour ;-) However, it is rather unlikely that Rock Dassies would enter the room, as they are very cautious. If you experienced baboons coming close to the chalets, please notify the lodge manager immediately. There are accommodation...More

Waterberg was our second stop after Na'an Ku Se Lodge near Windhoek. The drive was worth it...even arriving after dark added to the amazing surprise in the morning. My 7 yr old son and I had no idea we'd wake to a top Dawn Chorus,...More

Wow! Five stars from us for your comment, or should we say: novel? ;-) Thank you for recommending and describing our Cultural Tour to Hereroland (8h00 to 13h00, with a guide, but in you own car). It's not a living museum or a show, it...More
