8/10 Very good

Great location & nice hiking trails, but a bit austere for the price. Rooms are dark and ours had no hot water and a couple of wolf spiders we could really have done without!

The Perfert Desert Retreat
The perfect desert adventure!! A truly unique location and lodge built into the side of a rocky hill, and designed with domed ceilings and rocks. The owners live at the lodge, and they were incredibly hospitable, informative, intellignt, interesting, attentive, and all around fun!! The staff was equally fantastic. The pool is one of the best I've used during my month-long travels in Namabia. The scenary stunning, and the hiking options were perfect: from an easy hour to more challenging longer hikes, all from the lodge. Zebras roam close by, and there is a flock of resident guinea fowl, along with the other beatiful birds, and the resident three house cats. I highly recommend this lodge and hope to visit again!!

This property is in the "middle of nowhere", which also means beautiful scenery all around. The place is great to relax and offers some nice little hikes on the property. The owners are on site and really care of the welfare of their guests. We enjoyed our relaxing stay, the great pool, the good food and the wonderful cabin. We do recommend the larger ones.

A very special desert experience, we are very happy we chose to stay here. Compliments to the owners and staff team for their vision and welcome. If there could be a more powerful way to cool down the rooms in the evening, if the desert breeze dies down, that would be ideal.

10/10 Exceptional

A lovely relaxing stopping of point between Sossusvlei and Swakopmund. The accommodation is quite different from the other lodges we have stayed in, but made of local materials and blended in well with the scenery. We sat for hours on the covered patio of our room watching the activity at the nearby waterhole. The pool area was well designed and a great place to relax.
