Stayed over for one night.Rooms clean but tired - no shower curtain, and no two prong plug adapters in the entire establishment - the bath had been " painted" ! No blankets although the aircon ensured that we had a a decent nights sleep. Dinner was fair - we had steak and chips and fish and chips - not difficult...

Liviing a few miles from Otjibamba Lodge we go there once in a few weeks for a sundowner at the terrace. Food is reasonable not great. The restaurant looks nice but is mostly empty. Is it situated just outside Otjiwarongo on the main road so very easy to find.

This Lodge will not survive until end of this year with current Management. They must really be facing bankruptcy .If a Lodge can be judged a disaster this one is sure one of them. Rooms were clean and the location is a prime one, only management have not seen the potential in good customer service. Almost nothing on the meny...

The restaurant is very good and also well appointed, the food is first rate. Free internet access. The attached wildlife park has giraffe, Kudu, ostrich,...

Like everyone else we were en route to Etosha and needed somewhere to stay. I imagine that when it was new and properly cared for it was not unattractive and filled a need but now it is all rather shabby, the service is very mixed and the restaurant really rather odd. Rooms are indeed spacious, clean but very old-fashioned. The...

This is a really nice bush lodge with a beautiful setting. The rooms are very large, generally in duplex type buildings, nicely furnished, clean, and very comfortable. My only complaints were that none of the outlets worked in my room and the hot water ran out during my morning shower. The bush setting is very attractive and the resort has...

rooms had air con, basic and reminded me of cheap US motels. we took a walk over to the waterhole and didn't see anything (it was wet season) so not the hotel's fault, the dinner / breakfast was decent and they had a cute little gift shop. cell phone reception was excellent as well. a good place for a stopover...

Great rooms and great food, but the best part was the large savanah you can walk through with quite a few animals.

We stayed at the Lodge for 2 days and visited the Waterberg which is about an hours drive. The accommodation in the reserve has become to expensive. We found the staff very friendly. The rooms are very comfortable and specious with two double beds. The private game reserve is exelent. On our walk we encountered many animals what a delight....
