An unexpected gem

We only used Opuwo as a staging post en route to Epupa (and on the way back) and we were pleasingly surprised (as so often in Namibia) by the unexpected very high quality of this Lodge. Opuwo itself is not very attractive or interesting but the Lodge is located on a hilltop with superb views from its terrace over its "infinity" swimming pool.

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.

Opuwo Country Lodge review

The Lodge has a good location. Reception staff were friendly but the lodge does not have a personal feel and the main lodge staff were not very attentive. The standard room was clean and comfortable and had a good view.

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.
