We didn't like this hotel - the only one we didn't like in Namibia all the rest were fabulous. The food was cold and not a lot of choice. The safaris at night was booked when we got there and the staff were unhelpful

We had a pleasant stay at the Etosha Safari Lodge close to Anderson Gate. Sometimes in the evening a little bit crowdy due to the tourbuses stepping in. Here the quality of the buffets suffered. Overall : Good location

After 10 days in namibia with really small and personalized hotels, this was prepared for big organized groups with dinner buffet that is quite poor, so quite disappointing. 9km away from Anderson's gate and the rooms are just ok. Views from the main terrace are nice and the highlight is that 4 giraffes were waiting for us in front of...

We stayed for one night as part of a tour. The view over the valley is a WOW especially at sunset. Nice pool with loads of bird action which appealed to the birder in me. AC was good once I figured out how to use it and staff came quickly when I called for help. Twin Beds however are super...

The lodge has a very good location. So you are at the Anderson Gate in 10 minutes. The lodge has three pools where you have a great view and you can relax after your game drive. At the breakfast and dinner buffet you have a large selection of very good food. The only thing we missed was a fridge in...

Nice well appointed bungalows, spread out on a hillside. Comfortable room. Nice swimming pool and bar area. Gift shop had maps, books, gear needed for Etosha. Good idea to bring basic groceries, lunche etc. with you as there is nowhere to get these items.

Stayed here for three nights while visiting Etosha, easy short drive so good place to use as a base. One thing I did miss though was watching game at night at watering hole. Staff was very friendly and helpful, my son loved the buffets (food was generally good but not special). Rooms are very comfortable with views over veld.

We checked in only 5 hours before dinner and while my husband had his birthday, we asked them to bake a cake and sing to him during dinner. They baked a wonderful, fresh cake and sang to him during dinner. What a special experience. Thank you!

Guests rave about the view: the restaurant and chalets, situated on a hillock, offer magnificent views of the African bush savannah. All of the 65 double room chalets have air conditioners and mosquito nets, and a choice of three swimming pools between them. Apart from the restaurant and bar there is a wooden platform for sundowners high above the Mopani bush. ... more   less
