"Kanaan Desert Retreat overnight Stay"

1 night Arrived 16 Sep 2019
"Another lodge in the middle of the desert but with memorable views over the dearest landscape. The tented chalets are built on stilts set against the hillside take full advantage of the available views. The units are small and well equipped but due to a limited power supply certain items could not be provided. A minimal inconvenience. The restaurant was also set against the hill up from the chalets to afford diners a superb view of the sunset. Staff very friendly, but not overly so. Food and service was very good. The office was located over the hill from the chalets, as was the small pool, which was abit inconvenient. There was a problem with the internet when paying on check out, but it was slowly resolved. We didn't avail ourselves of any activities, as we only stayed overnight." See all these reviews: 22n in Namibia; 6n in Botswana; 2n in Zimbabwe

"Kanaan Desert Retreat review"

2 nights Arrived 30 Apr 2017
"Situated in awesome setting, really enjoyed early morning drive to their private vlei and evening drive to the dunes. Observing their 2 cheetahs in "rehab" very interesting. Appreciate their efforts to help oryx by getting in volunteers to remove kilometres of old farm fences. Great food, well worth a visit." See all these reviews: 27n in Namibia
