Frans Indongo Lodge review

This is more like a very upmarket hotel than a lodge but as such it was excellent. It was my birthday when we arrived and my daughter had emailed them to see if they could do anything to celebrate it and they really were lovely. There was champagne and 4 glasses in the room - flowers on the bed - and they had made a huge chocolate cake which we had with a cup of tea. My only caveat is that the animal side is more like woburn safari park but if you disregard that and just see it as a restful and fairly luxurious end to the holiday then that's OK.

Frans Indongo Lodge is the best

Fabulous way to finish off our holiday. Great accommodation, amazing food, very good service and good value for money
had two trips, one game drive which we enjoyed althoughit is a very different setting to etendeka and etosha.

Felt the driver got a bit close to the rhinos. Not so concerned for our personal safetly, more that we were encroaching on their space.

Well organised trip to the CCF. If you do go to CCF make sure you see the orphans in the very large enclosures (has to be booked via lodge) rather than just those few in intensive care in the centre. Very relaxing last couple of days.

A good first Stop

Nice 'hotel like' lodge with helpful hosts and enjoyable food. Lacked character in terms of surrounding location and general design. Beige bathroom could have been anywhere in the world!

Didn't participate in any activities except the self guided walks so not qualified to comment on the whole exprience on offer. Hosts very helpful about suggesting walks above and beyond the standard route offered on the property and staff attentive.

Warm welcome in Nabibia

Given a very warm welcome. Very friendly people, particularly John, the manager. They no longer have animals heads in the reception area as mentioned in the Bradt Namibia guided. Have very good facilities for disabled travellers is required.
