"Heaven"

3 nights Arrived 4 May 2008
"Granite cabins built into the hillside, next to no people, no noise (see later) and views to die for - well yes it has all this but there is a price to pay. 7km to breakfast/dinner on a sand road in the dark can be fun, they are also building the new railway line right in front of the cabins (well half a mile away) hence go in the next 5 years, as it probably take that long to finish the line.

This is a grat place, the food is excellent, the staff are helpful nad it is only an hour or so to Luderitiz and you have the wild horses just 10 minutes away, add it to your places to go before the train arrives.

Luderitz excursions - Do not arrange trips (with Wilderness) on a bank holiday. The boat trip is fantastic and the captain fun and knowledgeable. The only down side for me was the phone call from Wilderness asking me where i was as i had missed the trip, apart from that the seals are great the bird life good, dolphins stunning and the hot chocolate fantastic. Would definitely do this again, remember to take your jumper.

Kolmanskop - well it was a bank holiday and we did turn up an hour after the tour (on tame every other day of the year), having said that the guy on the gate did let us in and we did have the place pretty much to ourselves after all the tour people had left. Great place especially when the wind blows and all you can here is silence and history.

Bogenfels / Pomona day trip - This is a trip you need to think about as it is all day in a small mini bus and one of the harshest environments Namibia has and it is brilliant. Pomona is a very emotional experience as the dry air has preserved the timber buildings, which the sand is detrmined to reclaim. I spent an hour here pretty much on my own (their was only myself and Paul and Iris on the trip) and you realise how tough really was. Lunch was pretty good - Iris rustled up a feast in one of the houses).

Then onto Bogenfels (on one rough road) which was stunning, the strong offshore winds created fantastic waves which crashed into the rugged coastline and the arch is a must see for any keen photographer or lover of nature.

Iris was a star." See all these reviews: 12n in Namibia

"At the Eagles Nest"

1 night Arrived 18 Nov 2007
"Another excellent location consisting of stone built bungalow type accomodation set in rocks at the base of rocky outcrops. It was situated about 7km from the main lodge so driving to the lodge for meals was required although food would have been provided if you wished to cook at your bungalow. The room was well appointed and comfortable with again a verandah at the front overlooking the Namib desert.

Convenient to Luderitz and the wild horses the only minus point was again the quality of cuisine - average but no more .
Yet again service could not be faulted." See all these reviews: 12n in Namibia

"Klein Aus Vista"

1 night Arrived 26 Sep 2007
"Unfortunately we only stayed at K A V for one night, when in fact the setting was so exceptional that we would have liked to have stayed longer. We were at Eagles Nest in 'The Wall' which has wonderful uninterrupted views accross the desert to the mountains, a feeling of complete isolation, peace and quiet and very safe easy walks around the locality.

Although we ate at the main lodge in the evening and as it was very cold that night we immmediately lit the fire which was ready for us just to add a match to. There was wine to hand and we slept that night under thick duvets watching the flames chase shadows over the thatch ceiling. We awoke to the moon setting over the desert and the sun rising to turn the mountains pink.

We were advised at check in to order a breakfast platter the previous night whcih was packed up ready to go in our fridge overnight. We ate this enjoying the tranquility of the view and the changing colours of the sunrise. We watched the black eagles flying together overhead and left, sorry to be going so soon.

We were advised by the lass who checked us out to take the D707 route to Sossusvlei as the road was as good as the main route and it was more scenic. This proved to be excellent advice and the road conditions were on the whole very good. The scenery was amazing with red dunes on the left and mountains on the right for much of the journey and we were lucky enough to see a family of bat eared foxes snuffling round just at the side of the road! One of my 'must sees' before we'd set out.

I would most definitely put Klein Aus Vista on my ititnerary for my next trip and stay longer. When anyone says to me 'how was your holiday' the Klein Aus Vista experience is the first thing I tell them about!!" See all these reviews: 10n in Namibia
