8/10 Very good

Nice place, friendly staff. Good family room. For dinner there were only meat options but the chef was able to prepare fish which was very nice. Also the quota on internet was a bit inconvenient. But a very nice place overall also for families.

Excellent service
The service here definitely stands out as these are some of the nicest and most helpful hosts I’ve ever met. However, the facilities are also excellent with good food. Excursion is also awesome and well worth the price.

We stayed in a standard tent. The tents are located a short drive/walk from the main lodge...a completely peaceful and beautiful desert setting near fossilized red dunes. From the description on Expedia, I thought the tent would have a very minimal kitchen. What a pleasant surprise to find a refrigerator, 2-burner stove, sink, pots and pans and cooking utensils, dishes and cutlery, camping chairs, and everything needed for BBQ/braai! We bought food at the store at the gas station in Sesriem and were able to cook for ourselves at night and enjoy a campfire under the stars...and housekeeping staff did our dishes in the morning! We also ate some of our meals at the lodge. Unfortunately, they were offering a limited menu (rather than buffet) because there were very few guests due to Covid. Staff were kind and helpful, and several times someone dropped by the tent to make sure our needs were met. Be aware that the tents are very chilly at night during winter. With warm clothes and the nice warm bedding provided, we managed just fine. We loved our stay and would be happy to return.

8/10 Very good

The property is super nice, located almost 10km off the main road near a beautiful outcropping of rocks. Got a pleasant greeting when arriving, but was made to wait for my tent even when it was obvious there were no guests the previous night. They are pretty particular about not checking in before 200 pm. Dinner was quite expensive for Namibian standards (330 R), but was quite good with an open buffet. It included dessert in their very nice dining area. A number of oryx were visible just outside the dining area just after dark. Stayed in the tents, which were new, clean and very livable. Overall a very pleasant experience for the money, but they should let up if rooms/tents are available and guests come a bit early.

We enjoyed our tent. It was perfect for a family of four and had everything that we needed. Excellent to have a large fridge and freezer and the kitchen was well equipped. The only negative is that most of staff are pretty grumpy and rude.
