"An ideal introduction "
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
