"Good location for the dunes and Sossusvlei"
There was a local choir one evening comprised from the staff who were really good and gave us a local flavour of traditional music.
The area is stunning and the ballon trip whilst not actually travelling that far was fantastic." See all these reviews: 19n in Namibia

"The desert was the highligt"
"Fantastic situation for visiting Sossusvlei"
The food was tasty but was delivered at great speed and dinner was not a relaxing affair! We would have preferred more time to finish our courses and between each one being brought!
The sunrise drive was wonderful. We stopped for sunset and were pretty much the first to arrive at dead vlei and watched the sun come over the dunes with great photographic opportunities. We then walked up to a ridge of Big Mama which had lovely views. Personally we would have liked to walk up further but the guide and some of the party stayed behind which perhaps restricted us.
A trip to the Sesriem Canyon was offered in the evening but we thought that this was a lot of money and chose to drive ourselves, which gave us opportunity to get petrol and a permit for the next day." See all these reviews: 13n in Namibia; 5n in Botswana
"Fantastic place and great room / tent)"
It was a great place to stay, with an 'upmarket' feel to it, although the very nature of the camp and the number of guests inevitably gives it a slightly less 'personal' feel to it than a few of the other places we stayed at.
The trip to the Sossusvlei dunes was great, but there was some delay as the guide left with the wrong key for the gate padlock(!) then we got a puncture later on so arrival at Dead Vlei was a bit late and consequently not ideal for photography. The lunch in the desert was great though. Our guide, Christoph, was fairly new to the job but gave us a very good trip" See all these reviews: 14n in Namibia

Main areas pleasant but food , although good in patrs, did not live up to brochure.
