10/10 Exceptional

Amazing stay
We loved our stay. The location is amazing and so is the service. We really enjoyed the Game Drive, it's a must (we took the combo tour and we loved it). Service was great and food was really good. Dinner was at a very high level. For me, being Vegan, they had a lot to offer which is not common in Namibia. I would highly recommend it.

4/10 Fair

This is at best a 2 star facility. We stayed in the Dune Exclusive and would strongly recomment to keep to the lower budget options as this was not worth the exhorbitant price. Everything is very dated - furniture, towels, jacuzzi, tablecloths and napkins, one poorly functioning toaster with 70 plus guests. Cleanliness is well below standard. No wifi if you have a Samsung device even in main lodge as advertised. Staff is poorly trained and disinterested. Meals were average at best.

8/10 Very good

Good stopover between Windhoek and Fish Rivet Canyon. Though it’s very commercial. Lots of activities on offer.

2/10 Poor

Booked a Savannah chalet months in advance & paid at time of booking. On arrival we were told all Savannah Chalets were full & we'd been upgraded to the farmhouse. This sounded odd as ours was already paid for months ago. I asked what made the farmhouse an upgrade? The front desk guy just had a constant smirk on his face & said was better, but could not explain why. We were told the farmhouse was 2 miles off site & we'd need to drive there ourselves & get the staff to collect us for dinner. This didn't sound like an upgrade & sure enough when we got there, instead of being in our own chalet, we were in a building converted into 5 different rooms. No view, less space, no bath like the Savannah chalet would've had. Our view from the room was parked cars & hosepipes left on the ground. Inside the room was ok, but it wasn't the room I paid for & certainly no upgrade. There were no facilities here, apart from a pool round back of the building in front of someone else’s room. We noticed all the rooms in the farm building were occupied, so we weren’t the only ones that were allegedly upgraded. We waited 90 mins for the dinner pick up. There was no phone to call front desk. The meal was nice & had a nice atmosphere sitting outside. This was the only nice part of our stay. Basically we were lied to & told we'd been upgraded, rather than apologise for giving our room away. A bad experience made worse by incompetent staff. Would not visit again & not recommend it. Avoid!!!

Really enjoyed Bagatelle, especially the animals roaming around the grounds - and the chance to see the local meerkats! The morning drive in the Kalahari was beautiful and the night drive was resplendent with stars.

Great location
A unique desert experience with red sand dunes around you. Great food and comfortable rooms. Some redecoration of some rooms is needed. A very enjoyable stay.

Lovely lodge in Kalahari
Bagatelle is really worth at least one night's stopover if not two. We stayed for two and were glad we did. We were upgraded to a Dune Chalet 😊which was really comfortable, crisp linen bedding, good and much needed air con, with amazing west facing terrace with views. Sitting with a sundowner watching the meerkats play was magic. The communal areas are stylishly furnished. Food here is also of a very good standard....and the pool is great for cooling down in. You meet an interesting mixture of people...some camping, others driving from lodge to lodge as we were. We went out on the morning scenic drive and really enjoyed's low key but you do see some game, we were lucky, a bat eared fox....but it is what it says, scenic. You can also go out on horses. Staff all very friendly and helpful.

Beautiful location
We stayed in a dune chalet which was beautiful and right on the edge of the desert which afforded us a gorgeous view and complete silence. The lodge was lovely as well and the service good. The one big drawback, and largely the reason we selected Bagatelle, was that we wanted to see the cheetahs. There were 3 in an enclosure, and our half-hour ride to see them was OK but not great. It paled in comparison when we saw cheetahs in the wild at Erindi.
