Truly in the desert

Apart from the fact that our wonderful rooms were 9 Kms from the dining room, this place was wonderful, we all felt we were right in the middle of the desert, and at times, the only sound was our heart beat!

The staff were knowledgeable & very attentive, and service felt very personal, despite the dining room being big & busy.

Food was good, with lots of choice to suit all tastes. We were given all the makings for a BBQ the first evening, which we cooked and ate at our rooms.

The rooms were lovely & had everything we would need for a longer stay. Views were superb, with wildlife everywhere.

Eagles Nest was a superb place to stay for us to visit Luderitz & Kolmanskop. We also managed to see hundreds of wild horses, some seemed to be suffering badly from the drought.

Eagle's Nest review

Eagles Nest was one of the highlights of our stay. The rooms were extremely well equipped, and we loved the isolation.

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.

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.
