Wow - you must go here
We arrived late afternoon having ambled along from Canon Lodge - we loved the railway and were fortunate actually to see a train running so that took some photography time up. We also stopped at the Naute dam for a spot of lunch and bird-watching - an interesting change of vista from the arid landscape.
Eagles Nest is a gem. We ate at the lodge one evening as we had arrived too late to organise ourselves into Braai mode - but we did braai the second evening which seems to be the pattern of most.
We used this as a base for Kolmanskop, like most people which is just over an hour away. We timed our visit for gate open at 8am for the photographic opportunities and also to be there when it is even more deserted (i.e. before the coach tours pul in). We spent a happy morning there and then onto Luderitz for our picnic breakfast taken with us but eaten late.
We spent two nights at Eagle Nest and could easily have spent 4. There is self guided hiking and mountain bike riding available which we would have partaken. You could easily just sit on the veranda and watch the world go by - in this remotest of spots, it was amazing what did wander by....
An excellent Location but the mosquitoes did bother us a lot and there were no nets, additionally the mice in the room overnight did unnerve Anne.Read more about the whole safari
Eagle's Nest - 7k away from the reception/bar
Stayed in the rondavaals 7k from main lodge along sand roads. Roomy accommodation built around a huge rock.
Very comfortable but shared with one or two mice!
A long way to go to the main lodge for anything so one night had their brai pack - very good! - and made sure we were ready to leave from the lodge after breakfast there.
Went for a great walk in the hills on the estate - too chicken to mountain bike though it looked amazing.
Fantastic views from our chalet, especially at sunrise and sunset.
The BBQ kit and breakfast kit are very good and it was fun cooking our own dinner, although we needed to find some kindling to help start the BBQ. Very well equipped and a good selection of wines and beers available in the chalet.
Highly recommended 2 nights.
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 additionRead more about the whole safari
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.
