"Fossil desert tranquility"

2 nights Arrived 11 Mar 2015
"Our second time at Suricate and we can't recommend it highly enough. It's not as swanky as some of the other camps in Namibia, but the staff are friendly and a little more human than at some other lodges. The tented rooms are a little elderly but very comfortable and tranquil, each set on its own stilts, separated from the others just by sand - no concrete paths here! The food is about average but the game steaks are particularly good.

The wildlife is always varied and plentiful. The Kalahari isn't a "real" desert because it gets some rain, and there is grass and wildlife everywhere around the camp. A huge pan right by the camp is home to wildebeeste, oryx and springbok, there are plenty of birds and small mammals too - even a mongoose catching flies outside our room one evening.

There is absolutely nothing to stop you going for a wander into the pan on your own - a welcome change from many other lodges where stepping away from the lodge needs a guide and/or a jeep. Take the guided evening drive, though - you may see a lion close up, as well as zebra and steenbok." See all these reviews: 14n in Namibia

"Excellent nature, stunning views, tranquility"

3 nights Arrived 18 Mar 2014
"We may be slightly biased because we were the only guests here for two nights in a row. The rooms are a little run down but that just adds to the charm of the place.

The game drive was the best we have done - not so much for the animals (it's a relatively small reserve and you won't see the big 5 here) but for the proximity to the game and the enthusiasm of our guide, Chamberlain. Service was good, and the desert was everything we had hoped - spectacular sunsets, amazing stars and a sense of isolation that was hard to beat." See all these reviews: 14n in Namibia
