All you will need

We decided to stay here instead of in Windhoek on our way back, as we didn't enjoy Windhoek. Lovely place with great pool and some local walks (the maps aren't great though).

The room was nice and when the power went out, the supplied us all with candles, which made it very romantic. Food was good, service okay. It is a great place, but we had so little time there and I was ill, so didn't really enjoy all it had to offer. Still beats staying in Windhoek by a mile.

Eningu -first two nights of holiday

Perfect location for the start or end of holiday. Very relaxing and good accommodation.

Food very good and owner and staff all helpful. Nice pool and the very good hide was a surprise bonus.

Eningu Clayhouse review

Thank you Sabina for suggesting this for our last night. Bettina is a lovely host and her place is different.

Next time we would like to begin our trip with two nights here.

Eningu Clayhouse review

Our last night and it would have been very peaceful and relaxing but a storm raged throughout the early evening and night. We were looking forward to walking through the grounds (a luxury after all the driving) but sadly we were unable to do this.
The mud huts were very organic and unusual.

We got the impression that guests are somewhat scarce here as there were very few entries in the guest book.
Food was excellent, staff very quiet and unassuming.

Great place to stay for a relaxing first/final night. Just over an hour from the airport.

Ening Clayhouse

Most beautiful Lodge we have visited this holiday. Amazing!

The food was not of this world, like a 5 star restaurant. Outstanding.

Great place for hiking trips.

Red Clay desert lodge

This lodge introduced us to Namibia, a quiet and beautifully remote location which symbolized most of the country. We were surprised by the open spaces, sky and red desert, with animals appearing quietly around us.

The distances between farms, towns, and the absence of people first shocked us - why was the hotel so remote. But we learned that this is part of the experience of Namibia - it is unlike our huge city - peaceful and slow.-paced. We spent just one night and were welcomed to a good dinner, a comfortable room that had sitting areas and rustic decor, and lovely marked trails. The owner was very friendly and kind, sending us off with a packed lunch.

A unexpected pleasant surprise

We were expecting an average place near the airport for our last night but we could not have been more wrong. It is really wonderful to come across somewhere like this. After 65km on a gravel road we were so surprised to find Eningu.

The rooms were large and well equipped and comfortable. We received a very warm welcome and were only sorry that we only had one night to enjoy this oasis in the desert. We were the only guests on that night but the lodge was prepared as if it was full. Dinner was excellent and breakfast buffet also.

A definite place on our return list to spend longer there.

Eningu Clayhouse review

Owner changed 2 years ago so review of facilities needed. Telescope has gone for starters. No sign of porcupine feeding.

Friendly with good food and nice room. Relaxing. Seemed a popular place to finish holiday.

Couldn't find start of trails for a walk. Map vague.
