Enjoyable stay at Doro Nawas

Another stunning location with very comfortable and large room with a fantastic view and private veranda. Staff extremley helpful and friendly Jason and others were very helpful when we experienced car problems and problems with the car hire firm which they sorted.

Guided walk with Michael was very informative and we had such a good time the walk took longer than was planned.

Despite the car problems it was a very enjoyable stay and although we can't remember all the names of the staff we met, everyone was wonderful and we were quite sad to leave, a place we hope to return to one day.

A great base for an Elephant Safari!

Doro Nawas review

Fantastic place - probably our favorite of the trip. We loved that you can sleep outside under the stars (although I was a bit afraid of porential leopards!).

Peter our guide was fantastic - really knowledgeable and friendly. We saw a Cheeter eating an ostrich it had recently killed as well as lots of desert elephants thanks to his tracking skills.

The views were fantastic from the hotel - perfect for sundowners.

Asleep under the stars bliss!

We loved this place as well! The main building looks a bit as if it's out of Star Wars but that was more than offset by our beautiful room, with spacious bedroom, bathroom - including outdoor shower and, of course, those wonderful beds that we rolled out under the stars at night.

We found the staff to be friendly and helpful.

We happened to meet the MD of Wilderness Safaris who was visiting and expressed our concern at the exorbitant cost of safaris to see the desert adapted elephants. He assured us that Chris [Ed: Chris McIntyre, of Expert Africa] had already raised this with him and that it would be rectified next season. He actually gave us a free safari so we were, of course, very happy customers.

The bed under the stars makes it all worthwhile travelling there!

Also, lovely staff (who sang to us after dinner - in the 'click' language).

Doro Nawas review

A wonderful experience - very different!

A great location for many different acitivities, though the only one arranged by the hotel of which we took advantage was an early morning walk in the desert. The prices of anything else on offer seemed extremely high and as we had a hired car (and had already spent so much on the holiday) we did not go on any of their organized trips.

We enjoyed the desert walk and we visited the Petrified forest (which was very interesting), Twyfelfontein, the Organ Pipes (which we loved) and the Burnt Mountain under our own steam. Did not use the swimming pool - no time and very small. We loved our room there.

Doro Nawas review

Location on hillside gave great views but difficult walking to restaurant etc.

Not good for older people and those with any problems walking.

Service and friendliness of staff superb. Liked the singing after dinner by the staff.

Doro Nawas review

This excellent lodge has a superb location.

The rooms are vast and the highlight is being able to wheel your double bed out and sleep under the stars.

Service was very good and they made a real effort to provide interesting vegetarian food for us.

Vastly overpriced

This accommodation was ridiculous eg 2 sinks and 2 showers in the room and a verandah that could accommodate about 50!

The game drives were twice the price of any where else and they certainly weren't twice as good. In fact the 2nd drive was more or less a repeat of the first such was the limited knowledge of the guide. We were fortunate in the fact that the guide trainer from WS happened to be there so we were able to gleen some wildlife and environmental information from him.

We also had to pay for lunch if we were doing the morning drive, yet this was just back at the lodge and was nothing to do with the drive and we didn't need or want it yet we had no option but to pay for it.

The whole experence was very food orietated and not wildlife orientated so they have their priorities all wrong.

The staff however were very friendly and helpful.

Note the reason I have indicated that the location was poor is due to the state of the road to it.
