"Unforgettable elephant excursions"

2 nights Arrived 4 Aug 2007
"Our room was lovely (although we lost power for a short time one evening) and the setting of the hotel is stunning. A really beautiful hotel.

Our hotel-organised trips to see the desert-adapted elephants were fantastic - although on our first trip the clutch went on our way back and the hotel had to send out another vehicle to pick us up. We did feel that on our arrival back hotel staff might have shown a little concern - we had been sat in the cold and dark for more than half an hour - but no one asked if we were okay. We had to rush to get to dinner. The food was cold - and the portion of soup so small it could barely have been a spoonful. The food on our second night was much better.

We did drive out to Twyfelfontein which was very interesting to see - but spoilt by the fact we had the least enthusiastic guide we could ever remember having - anywhere! No tip! (Someone at the site - nothing to do with the hotel)" See all these reviews: 13n in Namibia

"Magnificant setting and wildlife"

2 nights Arrived 4 Aug 2007
"Really magnificent setting setting and welcoming environment. Our guide Lister was really good at tracking the desert elephents which we saw on three occaisions.

Two nights was probably enough for what we wanted though you could easily stay longer, it was so comfortable." See all these reviews: 19n in Namibia

"Finally found it!"

1 night Arrived 1 Aug 2007
"We were doing a self drive. The section of road from Khorixas was corrugated bedrock with frequent dips - the worst we encountered in 3000 kms. The main road, C39, was not marked after Khorixas so after 3 hours driving we wondered if we'd gotten off on a side road. Finally came to a crossroads so could locate ourselves on the good map provided by Exp. Africa. The turn off for Doro Nawas was poorly marked (small sign off to one side) and went right through the middle of some familiy's farm. After 5 kms we saw what looked to be a burnt cinder on top of a hill in the distance. This is Doro Nawas.

A steep climb up bare, rocky hillside from our car lead to the reception. We were welcomed graciously and enjoyed our stay.The staff were gracious and helpful.

Unfortuately, the activities (not included) were very expensive...the afternoon, 2 hour, elephant drive would have been over $130. for myself and 13 yr old grandaughter and this was not a good value for me.

It would not be a good location for someone with physical problems (knee or hip weakness) due to the steep and uneven climb up/down between lodge and cabins." See all these reviews: 13n in Namibia; 6n in Botswana

"The trips were rather expensive especially the cave paintings - perhaps travellers would be better to do these independently as we had an awful guide" See all these reviews: 16n in Namibia

"Good Wilderness camp but less friendly"

1 night Arrived 24 Jul 2007
"Well organised. Fuller of families than previous camp we had been at. Didn't feel as relaxed or as friendly as camp at Sossuvlei. Very confortable and great location. Not really worth staying much more than one day.

Were flexible in arrannging for us to visit the rock engravings and desert elephants in one trip - though it was freezing cold in the early morning fog!" See all these reviews: 13n in Namibia; 2n in Botswana
