Excellent staff , very comfortable rooms and superb food ! The view from their lapa must be the best sun down in the region ! The flowers and vegetation on this farm was beautiful! Naries is a very central to travel to i.e. Nababeep , Okiep and Springbok .

After a long drive we arrived at Naries Retreat. What a spectacular setting! Our cottages, next to one another, were comfortable, clean and spacious with everything one could need! We decided to have dinner at the Lodge, what a great decision as the meal was excellent! This retreat was voted our best in a long road trip and one we...

We stayed for two nights in January 2016 during a 24 night/15 location road trip, so this trip is relatively objective. As others have commented, the property is isolated, and perhaps all the better for it - absolute peace, quiet and great scenery - bliss. The Manor House was fully booked for our stay, so we took a s/c cottage,...

Excellent service, very comfortable rooms and squeaky clean. We used it as a base while filming the Spektakel Pass between Springbok and Kleinzee. The area is starkly beautiful but really comes alive after the first spring rains when the wildflowers are in bloom.

Our party of three couples met up at Naries after we had all travelled from afar to holiday in Namibia together. We thought that two nights at Naries would be a good place to re-group and rest before our adventure - our expectations were exceeded! We all stayed in the manor house and mostly had the place to ourselves. We...

This is a lovely spot worth staying in whenever you're in Springbok. Staff are friendly, professional and very welcoming. The accommodation is homey and comfy with soft glowing crackling fires for warmth in the winter. Our compliments to the chef. The menu is small but discerning and tasty with a very good selection of wines. The Kalahari around this region...

We stayed one night in the self catering cottage with our three daughters as we were on the way to the Orange River. We had a fantastic walk and spotted some Gemsbok very close to us. We cooled off in the sparkling blue pool and then we sat on the stoep having sundowners and listened to the complete silence. The...

What an incredible establishment with professional, friendly staff. We stayed in a namakwa mountain suite: isolated, luxurious and the most amazing view thinkable. The staff and Julene went the extra mile to make my husbands birthday extra special. They helped me organize the whole thing as a surprize and even picked up our luggage the week before so he wouldnt...
