Guter Ausgangspunkt für Tour zu Sossusvlei
Es ist eine sehr schöne Lodge. Vor allem das Abendessen im Garten hat uns sehr gut gefallen. Die Zimmer sind geräumig und sauber. Vor allem war das Moskitonetz um das Bett sehr praktisch und man konnte von der Terasse aus hautnah Oryxe beobachten. Unser Kellner William beim Abendessen und Frühstück war sehr zuvorkommend, nur leider waren die Rezeptionistin und einzelne Angestellte nicht sehr hilfsbereit.

Great stay
One of the best hotel experiences I have ever had. Everybody were so friendly and the dinner that was served was just amazing, friendly service and the most tender steak I have ever had. The rooms are very nice and comfy though you can see that they are a bit dated. Grounds are very nice and it was perfect to relax a bit by the pool after a long drive from Windhoek on gravel roads. 40 minutes drive to Sesriem and the gate to Sossusvlei Park.

mis à part l'électricité du site (et donc des chambres) qui sautait toute les 3 minutes dans la soirée le site est magnifique avec une vue extrêmement dégagée sur les monts et plateaux...vue à 360 degrés sans vis à vis. les coupures d'électricité ont eu comme effet de laisser le ciel étoilé sans aucune perturbation lumineuse à des kilomètres...spectacle magnifique et instantané.

Poor 2.0
Wenn man zufrüh ankommt ( 12,30 Uhr) wird man mit der Auskunft Check in 14,00 Uhr zuerstmal hingehalten . Das Zimmer ist geräumig, das Bad benötigt Renovierung Die Rosshaarmatratzen wurden für die zweite Nacht gegen Matratzen wie in Europa übliche getauscht. Das Frühstück am darauffolgenden morgen war reichlich, am 2ten Tag war es um 8,15 Leergefegt und man musste sich bei der Rezeption beschweren um sein Frühstück zu genießen was sich am 3ten Tag fortsetzte. Das Abendessen bestand nur ein einem Menü weite Auswahl ausgeschlossen, Der Menüpreis für das gebotene überteuert, Abendessen Satt, stelle ich mir anders vor. der Zimmerpreis wurde mir obwohl über den Reiseveranstalter im Sep. bezahlt nochmal auf meiner Visa belastet. Die Rechnung wurde auf Nachfrage aus dem Papierkorb wieder rausgeholt. mein Resüme Gäste kommen meistens für nur eine Nacht und danach wohl nie wieder
