Eningu Clayhouse review

Could not fault Eningu for a relaxing very good quality lodge at the end of our holiday, just an hour from the airport.

Food was some of the best we had all holiday, including the first class places we had stayed.

Would definately stay here again.

The best start to a Namibian Journey

The perfect start to our holiday in Namibia, very friendly staff and relaxed atmosphere, and a great welcome from Kate the host.
The walking trails are very well laid out and there are lots of information points to help to gain more knowledge about the local trees and shrubs and ways of life...excellent!

The food was quite the best that we experienced on the whole journey. We can think of no better place to start and finish one's visit to Namibia, and any future trips will have this as the start and finish point!

Fantadstic personal start to a great trip

Wonderful personal welcome from Kate the owner and her small son - cold towels to wipe away the dust on arrival and a warm welcome despite the fact that Kate had overlooked our arrival and wasn't expecting us.

The little houses were lovely, the food was good and well presented, the walking trails were well marked, and the porcupine which was fed by the back door after supper was an added bonus.

It was a great place to begin our African adventure.

Eningu Clayhouse review

Although Kate Dunstan is no longer in residence the manager running Eningu was very welcoming and we had a pleasant stay, the only downside, apart from the rain, was the now restricted walks around the lodge due to the neighbouring farmer's hunting consession.

There was nothing to see apart from birds and bushes, shame really.

Eningu Clayhouse review

As no doubt you know, the present owner has moved out and the lodge is up for sale. Meanwhile, a manager is running the place efficiently.

We've stayed there twice before (during the tenure of Stephanie and Volker) and could see little significant change. We like it. The food was good, but our two dinners both had heavy first and second courses (eg beef carpaccio, followed by eland goulash!), which seemed odd given the wide choice of really excellent salads at lunch time.

great!

Great place! You suggested this place for our needs (ie nice country stay to get over jet lag in a nice place to get a feel for the country. PERFECT!! and thanks for this!

From the books there are now new owners, not that it matters. The new manager, Bennie , was a great host! Very friendly, very nice. Gave us his card and said to call him anywhere, anytime if we have any kind of issues! Can't get better than this.

OOOOOOOOOO but THIS is important!!!!!!!!! We read nowhere in the Lonely Planet nor Brants guides that there is no heat in any of the Lodges in this country (maybe it is in there but we didn't remember seeing it). This was a bit of an issue. When we got there they were in a bit of a cold weather snap. It was about -5 at night. Being Canadians we have TONS of cold weather gear but didn't bring stuff for temps like this. We had to go buy fleese jackets in Windhoek.

Related to this, they have a great "hot" tub, which would have been nice to use, however they kept the temp so low it was like a cold pool! We didn't use it.
