OK place to stay as a stopover
OK place to stay in a beautiful location beind the Hohenstein mountain which looked fabulous in the eveiung sun. Rooms are clean and fairly basic. Meals were good.
It is quite a long drive out of Usakos and off the main route.
We took an evening game drive where the guide was excellent and knowledgeable. However we only saw a few animals in the distance. The sundown stop wasn't great (next to a fence where we couldn't see the dun go down) and we weren't taken to the rock art.
Hohenstein Lodge review
Now under overall direction by Ulf, owner of Luderitz hotel. Newly installed manager and wif, a delightful couple. Promise of improvement.
Good overnight stop for people going north or returning from North. Not ideal for longer stay ... pretty hot in midday and nowhere cool to sit , and mountain rather too far to walk to and climb. I think Expert Africa should have discouraged us from staying two nights (we left after one night).
Night safari was very enjoyable, especially the rock art on massive boulders and potent sundowner.
However ride was long, road bad, and landrover emitted strong petrol fumes. The Namibian tour guide was excellent and very knowledgeable.
