Just ask Waylon !!!!!

We read some reports about this place that were not very flattering ,But we had a great time and it was all because of Waylon

WE had a full day rhino tracking in the palmwag concession with Waylon Alas we saw not one rhino but we did see leopard two groups of lions and loads of other wildlife and we did some walking in some of the most beautiful places imaginable A real Gem of a place !!

But the star of the show was the boy Waylon his knowledge and enthusiasm were boundless

Khowarib Lodge review

Khowarib lodge is beautifully situated and of the highest standard. The new lodge has been lovingly built by the owner with wonderful taste and attention to detail. Service and food were excellent, the bar was well stocked, and just a great place to unwind.

Cesar , the owner, treated to us to a day-long safari in beautiful Kaoko land. He impressed us with his knowledge of the terrain and wildlife. Cesar is an engaging and highly energetic person and a joy to spend a day with. The Himba visit lacked authenticity and was overly commercial.

Overall highly recommended.

Khowarib Lodge review

This is a fairly new lodge which at first sight looks very impressive but they need to iron out a couple of problems.

It was the only location where we were troubled by mosquitoes and the open air bathrooms had no protection. There seemed to be a high turnover of local staff and there seemed to be too many managers who liked to stand drinking at the bar.

The owner seemed to have vast experience and skill in running safari trips and we had the most wonderful day driving down the Hoanib river bed. The trip to the Himba village was a little disappointing with no sign of normal village life and the impression was of a place to sell trinkets.

We left here a day early.

Elephant tracking - Hoanib Riverbed: This was a superb day out. 2 of us with a knowledgeable driver and Landcruiser.

He was unstinting with his time and information and was able to find the elephants although they had moved around quite a bit. Nice lunch as well.

Himba excursion: We felt that this was all a bit false and it might be being overdone now. No sign of village life but plenty of trinkets for sale. The guide had a good knowledge of the culture.
