This was our first experience of staying at a Gondwana group lodge and it was so good that we are looking forward to staying at some of the other group lodges. Great buffet dinners and breakfasts. Loved the view from the balcony having a GandT watching the sunset. Only negative was that there was no wifi in the rooms, only...

We had a wonderful few days staying here, while also visiting the Etosha Game Park. We enjoyed all the meals. The food at dinner-time was amazing!!! The staff is very friendly and helpful. Will certainly come back again.

We stayed here as part of a safari package and thoroughly enjoyed our time here. The chalets we stayed in were basic but had all facilities. Wifi is only available near the restaurant and reception as the chalets are too far away to get reception. Breakfast and dinner were fine with reasonable selections. The added bonus at dinner was the...

The staff are very friendly, professional and helpful. We had a wonderful experience and the Shebeen was great! The food was brilliant. The admin to secure the booking was not great - delay in response time and a lot of back and forth emails. I will definitely visit one of the Gondwana Lodges again!

This is worth the price. We had one of the chalets. Very clean. The bar was very cool. Nightly live music around a fire place. The food was excellent. Buffet every night. More food than I could eat and very healthy.

Food is delicious and devine, not like every other buffet. View is breathtaking, unfortunately very dry. Chalets were very luxurious and exquisite, love the shower and the view from our room was astonishing with the sunrise.

This was our first experience of the Gondwana accommodation. Reception was good and the staff very friendly and helpful. The accommodation was good but the surprise was that it had no facility for coffee or tea and a small fridge. Why? I am diabetic and had to keep my medicine (Insulin) in a fridge as prescribed by the doctor/ chemist....

Although it is not the same as staying in Etosha park and having 24/7 access to Okaukeujo water hole, the Etosha Safari Lodge more than makes up for all the lack of interest by Park employees to visitors in the Etosha Park. The lodge staff are very friendly and most helpful to things accommodation related as well as providing good...

Good place to stay as an alternative to the park itself. The units are below the koppie, with trees around them. No views. Well equipt, great shower. Access to two good restaurants and a pool. Can run and walk inside the lodge's park.

Awesome scenery, great staff....well kept chalets...the drive up to the lodge is amazing...definitely going back, with more people next time. There is no TV in the bungalows, giving you a chance to admire nature and watch the beautiful sunset. It is beautiful!

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
