  • Don't miss the "hide" and lions at night

    Great spot right at Etosha gate. Room fantastic,food and staff first class. Game drive in the lodge was definitely worth it for seeing the white rhinos. Not too long an afternoon drive. Highlights though are the “hide” and being woken at night by the sound of lions roaring outside the room- pulse quickening review


  • Amazingly wonderful

    I was lucky to be there last week,couldn’t believe how welcoming they made me feel. Such an incredible view,looking over the plane. Isolated but so perfect. I hope to return one day. I did get some goodies from their boutique shop review
