By far the best place we have stayed on our Namibian trek.
Fantastic location overlooking the valley, infinity pool, and great dining room.

... took pictures. The last group is the Herero's tribe that adorn a long dress of German inspired style with a head piece that resembled the horns of cattle (a two by four piece of wood) covered in material to match their elaborate dresses and worn over the forehead.
