Doro Nawas review

A lovely lodge where you get a great local welcome and you really sense that locals are at the heart of running the place. Very happy with everything here. Staff very welcoming.

The footpaths and steep path to main reception may be a problem for people with mobility issues. Nice comfortable chalets - no air conditioning but that wasn't a problem as nights were cool.

Spectacular views and the rooftop barbeque was a real treat. Highly recommend.

A good one night stopover

Our welcome was not as good as at other Namibean establishments which means we can't rate our stay as excellent.

However we liked staying here, the food was good and the chalets very comfortable.

Staying here meant we could see the rock engravings at Twyfelfontein, the Organ Pipes and Burnt Mountain and spend time at the Damara Living Museum - all very worthwhile.

Doro Nawas review

We have never had a sung welcome but absolutely loved it!

Wonderful hill-top building, trying to blend in with the surrounding rocks. Well spaced apart tents, beautifully decorated and equipped. Loved the outside shower. Good food and very friendly, well trained staff.

Very good guide Collen who helped us succeed in finding the desert elephants we had gone to see. Very knowledgeable and entertaining and sympathetic to what we wanted to do. Also a wonderful bush supper, again with singing to welcome us all and the menu translated into their 'click' language.

All great! Such amazing views and sunsets - never to be forgotten.

Would have preferred excursions to have been included.

Doro Nawas review

Greeted warmly by staff song. Another palatial lodge, great service and lovely room. They also recognized our anniversary with a bottle of wine, and sweet handwritten card. We slept on outside porch for both nights. We took all sundowner drives and morning game drives.

We drove ourselves to Twyfelfontain, another wonderful experience. Met wonderful man, guide Martin. We drove with him to Khorixas in the evening to complete some of our personal chores ($ exchange, fuel, etc), we met his parents and extended family for a welcomed cultural exchange.

Doro Nawas review

Enjoyed this stay but it was not as luxurious as the brochure makes out.

The rooms are quite cold at night (although we were there in a cold spell) and I didn't attempt to roll my bed out under the stars. We had an excellent evening meal out amongst the rocks which they lit up with dozens of candles. The swimming pool was too cold to venture in.

We had a good safari in the morning seeing Desert adapted elephants and a visit to a local village.

Amazing location

The friendly and enthusiastic staff welcomed us in with singing. The food was excellent and the bush dinner was a lovely addition.

Our activities were great, and our guide adapted our itinerary to suit our interests in birds and smaller animals along the way to Twlfelfontein.

We also loved the stargazing from the roof of the lodge.

If you want a lodge in the wilderness this is the place. Very friendly staff and guides, excellent food the surprise evening BBQ in the bush was a real treat.

Our guide found us the desert adapted elephants on one drive.

The visit to Twyfelfontain to see the rock engravings, Organpipes, Burnt mountain and the working village museum was well worth an outing.

Great camp for Desert elephants

Very good camp overlooking dramatic scenery. We took a guided safari to find desert elephants, which we did in a dry river bed. Very close encounter ! Our guide, Markus, was very good and very knowledgeable - he also took us for a walk into the bush.

Good food, very large rooms, friendly staff.
