A perfect place to stay for visiting Etosha (at 10km from the entrance-gate). A reason to stay even longer was the setting (superb scenery with zebra's and girafs etc), the quality of diner and the staff. We remember especially: Salomon, Fabian and Valerie. Thanks!

Loved every minute of our stay and wish we could have stayed longer. From the moment we checked in we received a very warm welcome by the front office staff.

We traveled with two parties (1 in lodge 1 on campsite). The lodge obviously is just great and lieas in a marvelous surrounding with a top view.

The room was good and newly renovated. The sundowner deck was also very nice. What let's this lodge down was the food. Had lunch one day and it was okay but dinner had very limited choices and the quality was not high. If I would ever return I would most likely look elsewhere.

The lodge is perfectly situated 9kms from the Andersson Gate and is well laid out offering privacy and views from every unit. Typical of Gondwana resorts, they offer a sumptuous buffet service for breakfast and dinner. We stayed in four different Gondwana resorts and found service was consistent and value for money was excellent. A good choice of local and...

Only 10 minutes drive to the main gate for Etosha, it is the best option for visitors to the NP. A lovely setting with individual chalets spread out across the bush. An easy walk to the reception, shop, bar and restaurant area. Very good food, both for breakfast and dinner, with game meat in abundance. Friendly and helpful staff throughout....

This lodge is only a few minutes outside of the park. The cabins are charming and spotlessly clean. The food is all served buffet style, and is excellent. The service could not possibly be any better. The staff is very professional and obviously care about your comfort. I highly recommend this place.
