We stayed at Etusis for two nights and had an amazing time there! The lodge is located in the middle of nowhere (by our European standards). The area has suffered from a dry streak the past years, but is home to some flat as well as mountainous areas. Nevertheless, the lodge catered to all our needs and wants, had proper... More

Very friendly and accommodating management. We liked the surroundings and the accommodation was better than expected. Will definitely come and stay again. Can recommend Etusis Lodge to anyone wanting to stay over in Karibib or Usakos.

My husband and I stayed at Etusis for 2 nights at the beginning of October. The area hasn't had rain in a long time and there are no watering holes near to the main accommodation. Dinner is expected that everyone eats together at 7. Which is fine except if some guests don't arrive at that time. We were made to... More

Not a luxury tent. .. average dinner with a poor breakfast. Not worth going out of your way for. Great for horse riders mountain paths very scenic. Nice quiet location. Eating meals on shared tables a lovely idea.

Very friendly family-run lodge. Nice, relaxed atmosphere. Kids friendly. Our kids loved the evening game drive (FOC!) Lodges are perfect for families. Kids had their own space with a small ladder under the roof and loved it. A small oasis in this harsh environment. Home style food. Lovely people! Best place that we stayed at during our Namibian holiday.

Etusis Lodge is an oasis that allows peace of mind and relaxation amidst the harsh reality of the worst drought in decades. The staff is courteous and well informed about different aspects of this amazing environment.

We stayed in the farmhouse for 3 nights in mid-July. We were with our family (3 children of 6, 3 and 1) and my parents. The farmhouse was very spacious. A lot of space for the kids to play. They loved to look for stones or look at the goats and horses, or just play in the sand. The beds... More

There are various options for accommodation. We were only two, but had a huge farmhouse to ourselves. The minimum stay is for two days and as it is a long way from the main roads this is fine, especially as there are tours of the farm, riding and walks. One can also continue into the Namib.

Etusis Lodge is a nice family location, where you can get in touch with the way of life on a farm. The host ist very nice although the furniture would need a fresh up we really can recommend this place and will visite again when we are next time in Namibia.
