Unique Nature stay

We enjoyed our stay in the remote Eagle Nest cottages. You have a true sense of solitude and are surrounded by vast landscapes, dotted with herds of oryx and wild horses. Cook your own dinner on the braai is a really nice addition

The Wall, Perched on a rocky outcrop

The wall was a great location, nice cabin,and well equipped, were able to take our dinner back there to cook it on a braai, which was a great novelty, whilst enjoying an amazing sunset and steenbok at the bird bath. Great trails were set up and well mapped, with accurate times for the walks.

The main building served a good breakfast, and there is a newly built swimming pool, which was nicely designed in a horse shoe shape. Owner was around and offered helpful information.

Eagles Nst Chalet

Really good to have our own BBQ

Accommodation exceptional. Very tasteful and well built.

Access to the end two chalets is narrow - I scraped the car, but it was my fault.

Interesting stay at Eagles nest

Not for you if you don't want to sleep in the same room as mice! Interesting place and location, fantastic scenery and enjoyed cooking on the braai.

Very remote, one night probably enough for us.

Klein Aus Vista Chalets very good

We stayed in the |desert Horse Inn, not at Eagle'sNest. The room was very generous in size and very comfortable.

It was good to have the extra time to do a couple of the recommended walks as well as the scheduled activities.

Your own suite - built into a boulder

We stayed at the Eagle's View, one of about 6 cabins 15 minutes drive from the main reception and restaurant. Each one is built into a rock at various places at the foot of a small hill.

Our one and only visitor was a local horse, who nosed up to the lodge window in curiousity. Consider taking a pre-prepared pack from the restaurant and cooking your own dinner on the barbecue outside the lodge, although the food in the restaurant is good too. Ostrich, horses and other wildlife make driving to and from dinner an interesting experience!

Very friendly staff, great location just outside Aus. We only stayed a night and would definitely like to go back to explore some more.

Rustic luxury in the mountains

The real sense of isolation made for a very special experience.

Our first night was windy and cold so we drove to the hotel for a very enjoyable dinner. The second night was good weather so we enjoyed a BBQ - the packs provided were good food but far too much of it. The room was well fitted and comfortable with fridge, cooker and lots of space. We did not need the open fire as the room was warm.

The hotel is still undergoing extension works which did not interfere with our enjoyment of the facilities except that the toilets are the other side of the car park.

The host and staff at the hotel were very friendly and helpful.

Eagle's Nest review

What to say! Stunning! We were fortunate enough to be housed in "Eagle's View" at Eagle's nest chalets, which is some 7kms from the main guesthouse down a dusty track. There are several different places linked to Klein Aus Vista but this review relates to Eagles View chalet. Quite simply stunning.

A beautiful chalet half set in some rocks at the end of a remote drive. The other chalets are all spread out so no one is really overlooked. Our chalet was at the end of the track and so very peaceful, except when some babbons threw rocks down the cliff at us!! The decor is gorgeous and it is so elegant and yet so cozy. Every little detail taken care of. The view of the plains from the bedroom was amazing.

Outside is a braai so you could cook your own meals if you did not fancy going to the main guest house for dinner. We tried both and both were excellent. The food at the main guest house was lovely but we also thought it would be nice to try and cook on the braai. We purchased the reasonably priced braai pack which provided enough food to feed an army. Steaks, salad, sausages, potatoes and deserts, all included in the cost. It was great fun cooking under the stars.

The accomodation was of a very high standard and well out of the way. You may have some difficulty reaching the chalets at the end of the drive in a 2WD vehicle as the road has some big humps in it. There was no wifi in the chalets but if required there was a reliable connection at the main guesthouse and reception.

There were lots of walking routes around the area and this would be an ideal base to start from.

A sensational place to stay. Beautiful.

Fantastic location under mountain

The location and lodge were excellent. It was 7.5km from the reception and restaurant, which was fine. Superb sunset, with the mountains changing colour in a spectacular fashion as the sun went down.

Buffet style dinner at the restaurant worked very well (even with a German coach party)- we decided against taking the barbecue pack option.

We took the breakfast pack to our lodge, which was a good decision.

We would have liked a little more time there to walk in the mountains and would stay two nights if we were to go back some day.

We saw an Eagle Owl, which was a rare treat.
