Frans Indongo Lodge review

We wished we had got here earlier and given the cheetah place a miss as we only had one night.

Very luxurious and resturant posh, yet it was the only place we saw a mouse under our table! The silver service was a bit over done, but a great treat to have stuffed wildebeast.

The animals here did seem a little boring after coming from Etosha, the children loved the TV in the bedrooms.

Frans Indongo Lodge review

This was our second stay at Frans Indongo, a large German coach party arrived at the same time as ourselves and seemed to take over the place.

Frans Indongo Lodge review

This was the friendliest lodge - all the staff were incredibly friendly. There weren't many activities, but it was a lovely place to relax, it had a very homely and relaxing feel to it. The rooms were lovely, with fridge, kettle etc. and bath & shower.

The food was lovely and wonderfully presented.

The staff were wonderfully chatty and friendly and very easy to get along with and gave the place a wonderful feel. Mr Indongo picked his staff well!

Frans Indongo Lodge review

Very pleasant lodge set not far from the main road, an easy drive from Windhoek.

A good viewing area enables you to see some game from the main lodge though some of the species, white blesbok, grey springbok made somewhat unusual viewing . In one of the camp's other large fenced areas ,we had a very enjoyable evening game drive.

A good spot to break up the journey to/from Etosha or the Caprivi.

A really lovely place. Good food, lovely views over waterhole, friendly and welcoming staff.

The game drive was wonderful, very close up view of rhinos including a baby. Guide very informative.

Frans Indongo Lodge review

What a place most beautiful rooms and public areas. Welcoming and efficient staff. Beautifully presented meals with veggie option.

Not so sure about animals from other areas there, perhaps this is influenced by having just come from Etosha. We used this stop as a rest time and did very little other than a swim. Nice pool. A great place to chill out.

Great scenery

The lodge was very new with views of game from the deck. However some of the game were not indigenous to Namibia, did we really need to have camels to look at?

Activities include a walking trail and game drive in adjacent game reserve with stunning views of White Rhino's. The lodge also had a flowering Jacaranda tree - beautiful

Frans Indongo Lodge review

We really liked the place. The managers are lovely and friendly, making our stay welcome. It was nice ending of our trip before catching the flight back home. Was sad to leave there!

Our room was lovely - very comfortable and homely.

Food was excellent. We enjoyed our dinners there because of the surroundings.

Frans Indongo Lodge review

A very comfortable, convenient place to stop after Etosha and on the way back to the airport. Our room was lovely. If you stop two nights, as we did, you are put into one of the thatched detached little houses, which was very nice.

Food here is excellent and staff friendly and helpful. A visit to the Cheetah Conservation Centre was worthwile.
