Kalahari Bush Breaks : genuine and friendly

We reached KBB just after lunch time, directly from Maun, Botswana. We had planned to re-fuel our car still in Botswana (€0,40 / litre less), but the Charles Hill Engen garage just before the Mamuno border was out of petrol. Obviously everyone does it!. So, on future trips we may re-fuel at the newer Shell station, just after the A3/A2 turnoff, which apparently was full of petrol but no cars!

After checking in, Mrs. Barnard was very kind in arranging us some homemade biltong sandwiches , which tasted marvelously. At the end we even bought from her some homemade biltong.

The Lodge/ Guesthouse, is on a tranquil spot, and the service was attentive and friendly.

Kalahari Bush Breaks review

A relaxing place to spend our last night - wonderful for star-gazing!

No activities as such were offered, but the dogs were entertaining (T-bone accompanied us on a short bush walk!), and nothing at all to complain about.

Kalahari Bush Breaks review

The lodge was easy to find and access and the owners and staff very welcoming. We were the only patrons.

The lodge and rooms are superb. The food was very good and there were soome good animal and bird sightings around. (Warthog, kudu and impala at the water hole) Impala outside the room window in the morning. It was sad we only had one night there.

Great overnight stop

Well run family establishment with two ,labrador dogs. We had a comfortable semi-detached chalet with bath. One of our best dinners with a whole kudu fillet and similar oryx cooked medium rare on braai before slicing.

Activities limited to viewing various antelope and zebra from 4WD or walking on well mapped and waymarked paths (which suited us). An excellent overnight stop on the B6 road. Not enough activities for two nights but perhaps worth arriving early or staying late the next morning.

Mixed feelings about Kalahari Bush Breaks

The room was beautifully furnished, but tea facilities would have been nice. The service was mostly polite, sometimes friendly, but sometimes rude. It seemed like the owner's experience with some previous guests influenced her reactions to current ones. Perhaps that's the consequence of people never staying for more than one night, so she never gets to know her guests properly.

We would have appreciated knowing beforehand that it is a game farm. This was the only game drive we went on where the animals ran off quickly when they spotted the jeep!

It was a very different 'food experience' to any of the previous lodges. It was also the only one that didn't serve bread or an hors d'oeuvre. They would have preferred it if we hadn't wanted a second helping from the buffet. And they got rather annoyed when it turned out that we wanted breakfast at a different time to what she thought we had said the day before. So our punishment was yoghurts over the use-by date in our packed lunch for on the way to the airport!

Although it was in pleasant surroundings, we may have enjoyed an overnight stay in Windhoek just as much. After all, the distance from Ghanzi to Windhoek wasn't all that long.

Very pleasant intermediate stop-off

Overall an agreeable lodge.We appreciated the private patio at the rear of the chalet, which also allowed a very personal viewing of animals visiting the waterhole. The food was first class although, as a vegetarian, I was disappointed that there was no alternative to the chicken dinner on the second night.

On the game drive,we were rather discontented that, in the rear of the vehicle, we were unable to hear the driver's comments. We were fortunate that the other passengers, a Dutch couple, relayed the dialogue to us.

We both felt that the owner, Barney,(?) really did not want to be involved with the guests.

Wasrm welcoming lodge in Kalahari

Kalahari bush Breaks was terrific, again we were made to feel really welcome, the design and setting of the place was lovely and the game viewing was much better than we expected.

We had a great time driving ourselves around the 4-wheel drive route and had good sitings. The food and wine were excellent.
