"Twyfelfontein Lodge review"
On the morning of our departure, one of the cooks asked us for a ride into the next next town while we were ordering our eggs. We had never met this cook before and felt that his request to guests was inappropriated. We suggest that Twyfeltfontein ask their staff not to make such requests to their guests."

The rooms, though spacious, seem out of keeping wiht the attractiveness of the main lodge building and as we thought a few years ago could do with a facelift as could the bathrooms where the towels were a bit raggy and felt damp on arrival." See all these reviews: 14n in Namibia
"Crocodile for dinner"
On request, staff moved us to quieter room as pathways link all rooms leading to Reception. Despite its size, from a distance the main reception building and blocks of rooms blend in very well to the surroundings. Rooms facing rock are quite dark and shower facilities are basic and could do with refurbishment but everything was clean.
Wonderful raised open air bar area with adjacent dining room giving spectacular views over the landscape. Breakfast and dinner served buffet style with plenty of choice of roast meats - incuding crocodile (which tastes like gamey chicken!). Fuel at nearby airstrip very useful. Hired bikes to go exploring but gravel roads don't make for a very comfortable cycle ride.
As we left the next morning (9.30am), saw 3 mature desert elephants eating from a branch snapped off a tree in a dry river bed next to the Abu Habib campsite." See all these reviews: 10n in Namibia
We do acknowledge that it's size does tend to make it more difficult for them to offer the very personal service that a smaller lodge can provide, although the staff are always very friendly. They do however, offer good value for money, and have a great location for visiting the rock engravings, and tracking the desert-adapted elephants that live in the dry river beds in this area of southern Damaraland.
"A scenic hideaway"
The evening meal, a buffet, was good, but did not cater for younger tastebuds. A highlight was the after-dinner entertainment, when many of the staff, still in uniform, performed local songs. Breakfast was good, with plenty of choice.
The staff were friendly and helpful.
(Would recommend other travellers are booked on at least a half board basis since there is nowhere else in the vicinity to take an evening meal)." See all these reviews: 10n in Namibia
