"We just loved it here!"
They are very well equipped and tastefully incorporated into the local landscape with wonderful vistas over the desert
We really enjoyed the option of braai packs, breakfast packs/platters allowing us complete independence and enjoyment of self catering without having to worry about supplies. Well stocked bar fridge and excellent facilities at the main lodge which can be used if desired.
well stocked and excellent lodge shop books, food and curios
Very carefully prepared information pack with a lot of interesting local area history
Excellent hiking and mountain biking trails with different levels of challenge
The current dining room is quite busy but there are plans to create a seperate dining area for Eagles nest guests to allow a quieter experience

"Great braai under the stars at Eagles Nest"
A member of the restaurant staff was very efficient in getting a braai pack prepared for us together with wood, firelighters and matches. All other guests returned to the lodge for dinner leaving us to have our braai in the dark under the stars - one of the best nights of the trip. This is definitely the way to do it at this resort!"

"Eagle's Nest review"
All facilities were 'on tap' including a good wine selection in the cabin. Very comfortable accommodation with extremely welcoming and helpful hosts who gave us advice on local attractions." See all these reviews: 16n in Namibia

"Actually we stayed at Desert Horse Inn!"
We travelled from Fish River Canyon along the southern route via Orange River and Rosh Pinah. This is a spectacular drive and was much easier than the Bradt guide led us to expect. Our car (including my handbag and purse) were searched at the police checkpoint south of Rosh Pinah - I think they were checking that we weren't carrying any diamonds. We had a pleasant lunch at the Frisk Coffee Shop (and nursery) on Springbok St (opposite the Spar) in Rosh Pinah.
Our room at Desert Horse Inn was spacious and comfortable with tea and coffee making facilities. There was a folder in our room setting out the fascinating history of Klein Aus Vista. Staff at the resort were helpful and thankfully told us that tickets/permits for Kolmanskop can be purchased at the gate, saving us a trip in Luderitz beforehand (Bradt guide says tickets must be purchased in Luderitz). We really enjoyed our visits to Kolmanskop and Diaz Point, but found that generally Luderitz had little to offer.
This resort shows a marked bias towards its coach party guests to the detriment of self-drive guests. We were told that breakfast was served at 7:30am and arrived at 7:30am to find the coach party guests finishing up on their breakfast. Fortunately, we were able to have a quick breakfast and make it to Kolmanskop in time for the 9:30am tour! Main course at dinner is buffet style, with snaking queues on our first night."

"Eagle's Nest review"
We stayed in cabin "Eagle's View" which was the last cabin & the setting of these cabins is absolutely fabulous. All the cabins were unique in design and built into the rocks.The room was huge with a kitchen area, kettle, fridge, 2 ring hob & full utensils. We opted to cook for ourselves & had both barbecue & breakfast packs for the 2 days we were there. The barbecue consisted of either rump stesk, t-bone steak or lamb with jacket pots, plate of salad with salad dressing, bread, & dessert. Breakfast was cold meat, eggs, bread, juice etc. Extremely good.
Whiltst we were at the cabin we did the 2hr Mountain walk, which we thoroughly enjoyed until we had to climb the mountain & come down the other side. It was an extrmeley long way up & down!! Not for the faint-hearted but a real experience. We thoroughly enjoyed this place. It was so peaceful, the cabin so beautifully decoarated. If you drive to the Desert Horse Inn, then drive a little bit further for a truly wonderful place to stay." See all these reviews: 20n in Namibia
"Eagle's Nest ...still the best"
It is everything we want and we always want to stay for longer or just move in! The personal hands on approach of the owners is evident and we appreciated Piet seeking us out as we left to check that everything had been in order. It made our morning."

"Eagle's Nest review"
Unfortunately after our wonderful drive from Hoodia to drive another 8km to the remote sleeping acc. and then back for evening meals and breakfast was just too much." See all these reviews: 19n in Namibia
"What a place we LOVED it!"
We ate one evening in the restaurant and then had a BBQ pack the second night. The pack was HUGE - it would have done for 4 people and we did suggest to the owners that maybe they could consider introducing a European sized pack.
Breakfast, which we also had in our room was equally generous in range and portion size. Would return here in a shot" See all these reviews: 17n in Namibia
