"The only place in Opuwo, and fine"
"Opuwo Country Lodge experience"
We didn't do any drives so saw no animals." See all these reviews: 9n in Namibia; 5n in Botswana; 2n in Zimbabwe
"An unexpected gem"
The main building is claimed as the largest thatched building in Namibia - probably one of the largest anywhere - and looks unusual and very attractive. We felt the food was some of the best we had sampled anywhere during our one month trip - they have really good chefs.
We looked forward to our second visit when returning from Epupa and were not disappointed." See all these reviews: 19n in Namibia; 10n in Rwanda; 1n in Kenya; 1n in South Africa

There are not many other options for accomodation in this area but if there were, I would try them next time rather than return to this lodge which I found a bit souless." See all these reviews: 9n in Namibia
