"An excellent lodge in a stunning location"
We enjoyed walks from the lodge and, as it was warming up, greatly enjoyed a swim in the small but attractive pool. The staff are welcoming and the meals very good. We had a barbecue on our first evening which was excellent.
Only 2 things let the lodge down. The key to our room safe had been lost and the advertised sunset drive was not available. Some may find the approach track ‘challenging’, but, as the notice said ‘Difficult roads often lead to beautiful destinations and this is a must stay place if possible, just for its location."

"Ugab Terrace is tired and poorly maintained"
Our cottage was at the end of a row of others. They have built a huge generator beside this cottage. It ran for a few hours over sunset and again a few hours from sunrise to breakfast. The noise completely spoilt the ambience of the location. There was a small pool of stagnant water next to the swimming pool. There were broken lights and broken walkway planks in the swimming pool area.
The room has no fan, no fridge, no kettle, the room of the cottage and the base of the bed looked hand made in chipboard. The sheets had a feeling of being old. It was a very unpleasant place. Because of the generator noise at our bungalow we went for a sundowner in their bar, we couldn't find anyone to serve us. The only good thing here was that the meal was good. We were not happy staying in this badly managed and badly maintained place. They let Expert Africa down badly. Expert Africa should not use this place unless they are sending budget travellers there." See all these reviews: 20n in Namibia
Although it's of no consolation for these travellers - it does underline the great value of booking a Namibia trip early, as it makes it more likely that we can secure our first choice of accommodation.
"This is a quirky interesting location"
But a stunning location on the top of mountain which took a nerve to drive up!
Food was ok, and breakfast terrace very nice.
Has a lovely pool and they have put a lot of effort into the gardens" See all these reviews: 15n in Namibia
