"White Lady B & B review"
only one place to eat at night, which was like an ex holday camp and poor food" See all these reviews: 20n in Namibia; 1n in South Africa
White Lady is actually quite a big set-up with camping as well as B&B and is attractively laid out. Breakfast is taken in an outdoor thatched 'lapa' complete with full kitchen. The food was very good, a buffet plus eggs, bacon etc., far exceeding expectations. No real reason to visit Uis other than as a stopover to break a longer journey or to see the nearby Brandenberg 'White Lady' rock paintings. White Lady does the job it is designed to do very well."

"White Lady B & B review"
"A good stop-over"
The landlady was lovely, and very helpful, telling us a lot about the tin mine and how to see it.
The accommodation was comfortable. And we had the best breakfast of the whole trip." See all these reviews: 19n in Namibia; 6n in Botswana; 2n in Zambia
"In need of some renovation"
It was good to be able to make our own drinks and cook for ourselves (if we had wanted to). However we were not prepared for this and so had no supplies with us. There are very limited dining options in Uis and on our second night, the owner had infomred the one restaurant in Uis (run by her sister) that we did not wish to eat there - without checking with us first - so it was closed for the night. Fortunately the Brandberg Rest Camp restaurant was open to non-residents and we could eat there instead. This gave us the opportunity to meet the legendary Basil!
We felt that although Uis was well placed to visit the White Lady in the Brandberg Mountains, it was too far to visit Twyfelfontein, the Organ Pipes and the Pertrified Forest in the time that we had. We had hoped to include these on our trip. As it was, we felt that given the experience we had in Damaraland, this could easily have been missed from our itinerary as were were not able to go to the places mentioned above. However, what we saw of Damaraland was stunning.
The owner was very welcoming and did apologise about the closure of the restaurant on our second night. It was a very peaceful location. The town is a bit run down (as you would expect for an ex-mining town), but interesting and we hope that tourism can add a bit of an economic boost to the place."
