I was thrilled by the dust road we took to arrive to the lodge and felt immediately most welcome when we arrived. The staff is charming and helpful, we had a very good guide for our first experience of the desert...

I'm living in Namibia and only wanted to relax and have good time with friends. Anib is far enough from Windhoek to be safe and undisturbed. Easily to reach it after only2 1/2 drive (from Windhoek). Beautiful location. SeeingEland Antilope from the bed.

What an incredible lodge. Staff were amazing. Rooms were incredible. Everything was reasonably prized! We enjoyed every minute. We also stayed at Kalahari Farmhouse which was more of a homely feel. Staff were amazing. Facilities were fantastic. But the food at Farmhouse......was completely AMAZING! Gondwana Lodges are by FAR; the best value for money and really really great to experience....

Would have loved to stay at this stylish and comfortable lodge for a further night if we hadn't already prebooked the rest of our itinerary. The service was excellent, the food delicious, well presented and honestly dinner was the best meal we'd had in Namibia. The salads were fresh and the chicken the tastiest I've ever had. The breakfast croissants...

There are very few lodges that even compare to Kalahari anib! Everything is perfect: rooms, food, service and activities! We had a sundowner drive with shimmy which was brilliant and very interesting and was the perfect end to our day. Well done Gondwana, you've done it again!
