Waterberg Plateau Lodge

Waterberg Plateau Lodge

"Unexpected Rally Driving in a great location."

2 nights Arrived 22 Mar 2008
"The Waterberg Plateau is a fantastic location and we enjoyed our limited hikes here a lot. That said, the drive in was a a bit of an ordeal because the rains had affected the track/road quite badly in patches and we only had two wheel drive. The drive to the Plateau Lodge was even steeper but mercifully more stable.

The Lodge was in a great location but the overall feel was one of functionality over atention to detail. It was a long drive down to breakfast, which gave the impression that this set up was for the convenience of the management rather than the guests. After all, if evening meal can be served at the Plateau Lodge, why not breakfast?

The main lodge gives the somewhat offputting impression [to us] of being a bit of a colonial outpost - with large numbers of black staff in green fatiques at the beck and call of the white management. Felt a bit like stepping back 50 years. I was not too impressed by the photos of relatives posing with shot leopards displayed adjacent to the breakfast table. It kind of reinforced the above feel."

Okonjima Bush Camp

Okonjima Bush Camp

"Excellent set up and staff."

3 nights Arrived 24 Mar 2008
"As I wrote in the Guest book at the Bush Camp - Okonjime came up to and exceeded expectations! We saw and photographed Lions, Leopards and Cheetahs in the first 24 hours and the facilities were excellent. The guides, particularly Albert, were excellent and the whole staff very friendly and efficient.

That said, I did not realise in advance that the hides at the Bush and Main camps were seperate, and I would have liked to have had a chance to take some pictures from the Main Camp hide - Oh well.

We were a little alarmed to discover, about ten days before our departure, via an online BBC news report, that there had been an armed robbery at Okonjima in February. Not wishing to be alarmist, for obvious reasons, we did not broadcast this information during out stay. Also understandably, no mention of the incident was made by any of the staff. We did wonder whether you knew of this incident in advance, but understand that if you did it also put you in a difficult position. Mercifully there was no sign of any similar problems and the security, if it had been 'upgraded' was still low key and not intrusive."
