Great day in Luderitz.

Really amazing stay in 'The Rock' BUT we caught two nights of very strong winds and icy temperatures which necessitated hot water bottles and lighting the fire!

Wonderful views and spectacular sunsets.

Very much enjoyed our day in Luderitz.

Eagle's Nest review

The cabin we stayed in about 8km from the hotel was magical

Still the Best Nest

This is our perfect location with beautifully appointed and maintained accommodation, walks from the door in every direction and everything 'just so'. Piet the very friendly and welcoming owner adds to the pleasure of rediscovering this bolt hole each time we return.

It just ticks all the boxes for us without exception.

Very restful evenings at Eagle's Nest

A down side for anyone who wants the restaurant is that it is 7Km away on a less than good sand road. The up side for those who want to is that they provide a super 'Braai pack' for barbeques and sell wood with firelighters. Each cabin has it's own barbeque and a well stocked fridge (beer and soft drinks) plus a good selection of wines.

The views over the desert are stunning especially in the evening. There is a wood fire provided for cool evenings. ( We used it on the first evening.)

The rest of the cabin was well set out spacious and quite 'chic' in a semi-rustic way with a suite, double bed and a single. There is a kitchenette and dining table too with all pots pans glasses and cuttlery.

We two lovely evenings there with the barbeque and wine 'cellar' on the go. ;-)

The garage in Aus, very convenient for petrol, is also the local shop. It also sells and repairs tyres should you be unfortunate enough to require such facilities by the time you arrive there. Watch out for 'Thomas' hawking carved palm nut keyrings when you stop at the garage. He'll ask your name then quickly carve it on one of his wares to make you feel obliged to buy. If you do don't give much more than N$20 - 30 at the very most. He'll ask for 70 or so.

We just loved it here!

We chose to stay in the eagles nest chalets which are 15 min drive from the main lodge Each one is private and unique

They are very well equipped and tastefully incorporated into the local landscape with wonderful vistas over the desert

We really enjoyed the option of braai packs, breakfast packs/platters allowing us complete independence and enjoyment of self catering without having to worry about supplies. Well stocked bar fridge and excellent facilities at the main lodge which can be used if desired.
well stocked and excellent lodge shop books, food and curios

Very carefully prepared information pack with a lot of interesting local area history

Excellent hiking and mountain biking trails with different levels of challenge

The current dining room is quite busy but there are plans to create a seperate dining area for Eagles nest guests to allow a quieter experience

Peit is present and available and very welcoming and helpful

Great braai under the stars at Eagles Nest

There had been flooding in March and the resort was in the process of rebuilding access roads; for which they apologised. This did not cause any undue difficulty for us but access to the Eagles Nest part of the resort was very sandy in part. We believe that an ordinary car may not have been able to access our particular lodge.

A member of the restaurant staff was very efficient in getting a braai pack prepared for us together with wood, firelighters and matches. All other guests returned to the lodge for dinner leaving us to have our braai in the dark under the stars - one of the best nights of the trip. This is definitely the way to do it at this resort!

Eagle's Nest review

Our cabin was amazing! The view from the front porch over the grassland was wonderful and there were lovely walks around the property. Food and service at the lodge were very good and there was the additional bonus of barbeque packs if we wanted to stay at the cabin.

All facilities were 'on tap' including a good wine selection in the cabin. Very comfortable accommodation with extremely welcoming and helpful hosts who gave us advice on local attractions.

Eagle's Nest - a remote beauty

Eagle's Nest was a beautiful remote location. We really appreciated having a self-contained unit with its own kitchen. Having a BBQ under the stars and choosing a wine from the well-stocked wine rack (in the room) was a real treat. The service at the main lodge was exceptionally friendly.

We look forward to a return visit.

Actually we stayed at Desert Horse Inn!

We booked for and stayed at Desert Horse Inn, not Eagle's Nest (ticking the box below in the hope that Expert Africa can reallocate our feedback to the correct resort).

We travelled from Fish River Canyon along the southern route via Orange River and Rosh Pinah. This is a spectacular drive and was much easier than the Bradt guide led us to expect. Our car (including my handbag and purse) were searched at the police checkpoint south of Rosh Pinah - I think they were checking that we weren't carrying any diamonds. We had a pleasant lunch at the Frisk Coffee Shop (and nursery) on Springbok St (opposite the Spar) in Rosh Pinah.

Our room at Desert Horse Inn was spacious and comfortable with tea and coffee making facilities. There was a folder in our room setting out the fascinating history of Klein Aus Vista. Staff at the resort were helpful and thankfully told us that tickets/permits for Kolmanskop can be purchased at the gate, saving us a trip in Luderitz beforehand (Bradt guide says tickets must be purchased in Luderitz). We really enjoyed our visits to Kolmanskop and Diaz Point, but found that generally Luderitz had little to offer.

This resort shows a marked bias towards its coach party guests to the detriment of self-drive guests. We were told that breakfast was served at 7:30am and arrived at 7:30am to find the coach party guests finishing up on their breakfast. Fortunately, we were able to have a quick breakfast and make it to Kolmanskop in time for the 9:30am tour! Main course at dinner is buffet style, with snaking queues on our first night.
