"Otjimbondona Kalahari review"

2 nights Arrived 14 Feb 2024
"This was just what we needed after a long day of traveling: this tranquil place with lovely people. We had a late arrival (+/- 20.15 hrs) but the kitchen had waited for us!!! Many many thanks to chef Gail and her staff for that and the wonderful meal she prepared for us.

Anita is a wonderful host, she told us a lot about the environment, and other interesting things. Our room was a very spacious bungalow. Absolutely high end materials, a very good bed, a wonderful shower and the largest and softest towels we have ever had. The airconditioning was working but for us it was insufficient. For my 80 year mother Anita arranged the bungalow with a smooth pathway instead of stepping stones. That is very sweet en considerate. @Anita: thank you again!!

My mother enjoyed the main pool (with magnificent view!), we enjoyed the excellent wines on the main deck and our plunge pool outside our bungalow. We will definitely return to this wonderful place some day; 2 nights was too short. Next time we will just relax, read our books, enjoy a glass of wine, and just be there.

Lazarus is a friendly and helpful guide. We enjoyed the drives with him. Especially our very last drive, on the morning we left, when we saw the beautiful rhino's." See all these reviews: 12n in Namibia; 5n in Botswana; 2n in Zimbabwe

"An ideal introduction "

2 nights Arrived 21 Oct 2022
"This was an excellent place to start a trip as it involved no more than an hour or so car drive from the airport.

The lodge consists of four very comfortable and tasteful "villas", privately located so you are not overlooked, and with a small plunge pool on your deck. The set up consists of a farm and a fenced conservancy area well stocked with game. But as there are no dangerous animals, walking is possible and we did this twice with a pleasant novice guide Lazarus. We saw Sable antelope, Kudu, Oryx,,waterbuck and plenty of the more abundant buck. Also a very beautiful snake which we eventually identified as harmless. We also had a drive through the area with the owner, and met some of the staff managing the reserve. All very satisfactory and relaxing.

The food was very good and the overall service and atmosphere of the place we found excellent" See all these reviews: 17n in Namibia

"An unexpected surprise!"

2 nights Arrived 6 May 2022
"This was a real surprise, especially coming from the Gobabis/Botswana direction.

We followed Google Maps down an increasingly undeveloped dirt road for several hours before finding it.

The few villas and central lodge were gorgeous. The service was superb. Outstanding wildlife for a private reserve." See all these reviews: 12n in Namibia; 2n in Botswana
