"Cheetahs and Springbok"

2 nights Arrived 16 Oct 2008
"A good place to start the holiday. Our room was comfortable and had good views. An enjoyable place to seeing even if a little lacking in "atmosphere".

Feeding the Cheetahs and walking with them is a must and an incredible experience but watch out for the pet Springbok!" See all these reviews: 14n in South Africa; 12n in Namibia

"Bagatelle Kalahari Game Ranch review"

1 night Arrived 2 Sep 2008
"Very nice, luxurious and wellmaintained bungalows, decorated in African style.

Beautiful area where we, among other animals, saw very special birds, like two giant eagle owls, a pygmy falcon and a Kori bustard! Special thanks to our guide Paul who is very enthousiastic (!!) and helpful. The manager, Cilas, and the restaurant staff are very friendly too.

Good food and a beautifully decorated buffet. This lodge really has style and offers service on a high level!" See all these reviews: 9n in Namibia

"Kalahari with Meercats"

2 nights Arrived 31 Aug 2008
"This is a straightforward drive from Windhoek. Watch out for the ranch's drive it is very sandy and we nearly got stuck but it is the Kalahari after all.

Look out for the Meercats, they are great fun and if you take the time to sit still they will come right up to you.

Very good sun downer trip with great night skies. Equally take a bottle of wine up to the dune deck and watch the sun set from the edge of the camp." See all these reviews: 8n in Namibia

"A great start to our first holiday in Namibia"

1 night Arrived 16 Aug 2008
"We were so pleased to have been able to stay here on our first night, rather than staying in Windhoek.

We were very impressed with the welcome we were given and the hospitality throughout our one night stay here. The food was excellent and it was great to be able to get so close to the cheetahs on the morning drive we had with a very knowledgable and friendly guide in the enclosure."

"Rooms with a view"

2 nights Arrived 8 Aug 2008
"We had "dune chalets" which were super - views across the site one way and across the open plains to the other.

Silas and the team really made us welcome and we had lots of fun. Other guests we met were delightful and helpful, especially those that had been in country for much longer so had good advice to offer.

The activities were good, although the visit to the cheetahs was rather artificial - three young males just around the corner and a female in a cage.

Our only real disappointment was not seeing the meercats - perhaps they were on holiday?

Going south from Bagatelle we stopped at both the Quivertree Forest and Giant's Playground, both worth the short diversion from the main road." See all these reviews: 20n in Namibia
