"Good for one night stay"
Friendly helpful staff arranged a desert elephant tour for us through another lodge. We had to leave early in the morning and the restaurant prepared a lovely takeaway breakfast box as we were not going to be there for breakfast.
We drove to the Brandberg White Lady Lodge to join a game drive to see the desert elephants. The sightings below were of four different groups of elephants we saw on the game drive." See all these reviews: 21n in Namibia
"Brandberg Restcamp (White Lady Lodge)"
There appeared to be 2 white SA ladies, one man and a younger man ?son who we assumed were management. If this was the case they did not introduce themselves or even have any interaction with guests which we found rude.
On our visit both swimming pools were empty and in the process of being cleaned so we could not use even if we wanted to.
The food was just above acceptable. This experience was certainly not the same as 5 years ago." See all these reviews: 27n in Namibia

"One look and we were off"
We did not feel safe as some of the windows and doors appeared to be broken or tampered with, and at that point I made a phone call to Brandberg White Lady Lodge to request if they had vacancies. Luckily they had so the car was repacked, John took the key back to reception and told the lady we were not staying. She asked why and he said it was not up to the standard we required.
Should have gone to White Lady when it was offered but did not realise the vast difference between the two places. It was a costly mistake but well worth the move." See all these reviews: 15n in Namibia
"Brandberg Restcamp review"
The rooms themselves were large and clean and each had a fridge which was useful. The staff were very friendly and the owner, Basil, kindly allowed us to use his PC to check our emails. Again, no information was offered about possible excursions, which could have been of interest.
The walk to the White Lady rock painting along a dry river bed was really worth the effort with great scenery and a helpful guide." See all these reviews: 19n in Namibia
