Eagle's Nest review

We had a warm welcom at the lodge and were guided to drive out to our cabins in the desert, were we should stay for two nights.

It was a lovely sight when we arrived there at sunset and the cabins were almost hidden in between the boulders. When we parked the car, two Klipspringers were taken by surprise and bolted away when we stepped out.

We had a barbecue the first evening and we could hear an Oryx grasing in front of us. He was not scared and reluctanly moved away when we put the flashlight on him.

Very good service and a wonderful place.

Eagle's Nest review

Very good indeed. An excellent location with excellent accommodation. Staff and owners were very friendly and helpful.

Some comments - the Eagle's Nest chalets are 7km from the main lodge, which is a little too far to drive for breakfast. Expert Africa mention "breakfast packs" but these were not available.

Although described on the Expert Africa website as "self catering" and although bookings are done on a B&B basis only, the main lodge does have a restaurant. You do not have to be self-catering.

The BBQ packs were enormous, expect huge amounts of food. Unless you do like vast amounts of food, I would suggest ordering one fewer packs than the number in your party - you will not need all the food if you order one pack per person.

A perfect location for day-trips to Luderitz

Expert Africa comments

Following on these travellers feedback we have been in touch with Piet at Klein Aus Vista and he confirmed that they definitely offer breakfast packs, which can be requested from reception.

Eagles Nest - beautiful location

These were in a stunning location with wonderful views. The chalet we were in was built around a huge boulder and the wine rack was made from a quiver tree! We were here three nights to recover and sort ourselves out after the mule hike. We opted to take the breakfast and braai packs, that the main lodge provide, if you don't wish to go back to the restaurant to dine.

The packs were very good and we enjoyed doing our own braai while having a sundowner. We tried a couple of the self guided hikes from our chalet, some easier than others, but providing stunning views and the chance to see some of the game in the area. A good location to go out and see the desert horses as well, we spent two hours just watching them and their interactions, it was fascinating.

The chalets are well presented and have everything you need, including a fireplace for those colder evenings. A good place to relax and enjoy the beautiful desert scenery.

Truly in the desert

Apart from the fact that our wonderful rooms were 9 Kms from the dining room, this place was wonderful, we all felt we were right in the middle of the desert, and at times, the only sound was our heart beat!

The staff were knowledgeable & very attentive, and service felt very personal, despite the dining room being big & busy.

Food was good, with lots of choice to suit all tastes. We were given all the makings for a BBQ the first evening, which we cooked and ate at our rooms.

The rooms were lovely & had everything we would need for a longer stay. Views were superb, with wildlife everywhere.

Eagles Nest was a superb place to stay for us to visit Luderitz & Kolmanskop. We also managed to see hundreds of wild horses, some seemed to be suffering badly from the drought.

Eagle's Nest review

Eagles Nest was one of the highlights of our stay. The rooms were extremely well equipped, and we loved the isolation.

Great day in Luderitz.

Really amazing stay in 'The Rock' BUT we caught two nights of very strong winds and icy temperatures which necessitated hot water bottles and lighting the fire!

Wonderful views and spectacular sunsets.

Very much enjoyed our day in Luderitz.

Still the Best Nest

This is our perfect location with beautifully appointed and maintained accommodation, walks from the door in every direction and everything 'just so'. Piet the very friendly and welcoming owner adds to the pleasure of rediscovering this bolt hole each time we return.

It just ticks all the boxes for us without exception.

Very restful evenings at Eagle's Nest

A down side for anyone who wants the restaurant is that it is 7Km away on a less than good sand road. The up side for those who want to is that they provide a super 'Braai pack' for barbeques and sell wood with firelighters. Each cabin has it's own barbeque and a well stocked fridge (beer and soft drinks) plus a good selection of wines.

The views over the desert are stunning especially in the evening. There is a wood fire provided for cool evenings. ( We used it on the first evening.)

The rest of the cabin was well set out spacious and quite 'chic' in a semi-rustic way with a suite, double bed and a single. There is a kitchenette and dining table too with all pots pans glasses and cuttlery.

We two lovely evenings there with the barbeque and wine 'cellar' on the go. ;-)

The garage in Aus, very convenient for petrol, is also the local shop. It also sells and repairs tyres should you be unfortunate enough to require such facilities by the time you arrive there. Watch out for 'Thomas' hawking carved palm nut keyrings when you stop at the garage. He'll ask your name then quickly carve it on one of his wares to make you feel obliged to buy. If you do don't give much more than N$20 - 30 at the very most. He'll ask for 70 or so.
